Our tilt and load trucks are equipped with steel decks which in addition to towing cars allow for moving small pieces of machinery and sea containers. The tilt and loads are ideal for moving empty and loaded sea containers because they come with a winch that allows them to pull the container onto the truck. The winch also allows them to pull on other pieces of machinery like forklifts or skid-steers that have broken down and need to be transported back to our customer for service.
Our flatbed/roll-off trucks are designed for moving all types of smaller construction equipment such as aerial lifts, scissor lifts, man lifts, boom lifts, skid-steers, forklifts, dozers etc. In addition to moving construction machinery, our drivers are experienced factory machinery and freight movers. We regularly transport generators, moulds, dyes, CNC machines, presses, steel and more. We have two specialized roll-off trucks that are equipped with a rolling tarp system that we used for weather-sensitive machinery. We supplement these with a full complement of blankets and tarps available for over-dimensional loads that need to be covered as well. Our roll-off trucks are also the perfect way to transport low-profile vehicles . Together with the rolling tarp system they are a unique way to move high-end or classic automobiles.
Our roll-off trucks are equipped with a 28 ft deck that will back up to the dock or lay completely flat on the ground to allow for easy loading or unloading of machinery. Our tri-axle roll-off trucks are capable of carrying heavier loads up to 30,000 lbs and can move multiple pieces of equipment or forklifts at one time. As part of our machinery moving division we own several different size indoor and outdoor forklifts utilized for loading and unloading. We even have a paper clamp forklift for the hard to handle paper rolls.
Ross’ Float Division has expanded rapidly over the past 10 years! Our fleet now contains 7 float tractors and 14 different use trailers. We have 4 landoll sliding axle type trailers, 4 low-boy or removable gooseneck trailers including a trombone trailer for extra-long loads and several van and flatbed trailers.
