International heavy equipment shipping and dismantling services

International heavy equipment shipping and dismantling services

Those who deal with heavy machinery on a daily basis know very well that moving this type of units can be extremely challenging, particularly when their overall dimensions and/or peculiarities demand that they be dismantled and put into containers, open tops or on flat racks.

International container shipping is a service most freight forwarding companies can offer, but not all of them can also arrange professional dismantling and loading of big, complex machinery.

Here at K International Transport, we have two well-equipped warehouses, one in Baltimore, MD, the other in Houston, TX, to assist you whenever you need to ship heavy equipment overseas that cannot go on a Roll On/Roll Off (RORO) vessel. Our personnel are properly trained and have extensive experience in handling construction, mining, and agricultural equipment of all sorts, such as backhoes, wheel loaders, excavators, asphalt pavers, motor graders, cranes, and much more. In addition, we can provide assistance with NCB inspections for both in and out of gauge cargo loaded onto flat racks.

Are you worried that your unit is too far from us, sitting all alone in the middle of nowhere, barely daring to dream of finally hopping onto a vessel and riding the waves of the ocean? No need to hit the panic button just yet! Thanks to our trusted heavy haulers, we are also able to move your cargo all across the contiguous states, even when such a move requires special permits and/or escorts.

We have successfully shipped countless units of heavy equipment to countries on all five continents, often picking them up from rather remote locations and auction sites, and most of our customers keep coming back for our expertise and unparalleled customer service, which is truly our trademark and pride. Unlike many bigger international transport companies, we keep our clients posted throughout the whole shipping process and we do not consider our job done until their cargo has reached its destination, however long it may take.

Paperwork is just as essential to shipping heavy equipment overseas as having the appropriate equipment, facilities, and skilled staff is, and here at K International, beside all that, we are always ready to share plenty of precious insights acquired hands on with regards to possible bumps in the road and handling of unforeseen events. We make sure everything is as it should be, thus minimizing the risk of unnecessary headaches down the road that can lead to significant delays and extra charges to be paid.

Whether you have only one machine to ship or you are looking for a reliable partner on your new adventure to sell used heavy-duty equipment to customers overseas, we are eager to put our know-how to work for you! Let us know how we could help you at or call us up at +1 (212) 267-6400!
