Our machinery moving division has been supplying our customers with reliable service for over 35 years. It has grown substantially and now includes over 35 pieces of equipment. We service a wide range of customer’s equipment moving needs. As our customers continue to grow and their needs change we continue to grow with them and strive to meet their needs in an effort to better serve them. Our equipment includes specialized floats – low-boy, landoll, trombone, as well as flatbed trailers, van trailers, roll-off trucks, and tilt and load trucks. Our drivers are all professionally trained and reliable in the machinery they move and Ross Towing is fully licenced and insured to provide our customers with the safety and security they need when moving their equipment or cargo.
Tilt and Loads
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 which are 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, etc. We have 2 specialized roll-off trucks that are equipped with rolling tarp system that we used for weather sensitive machinery and 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 and together with the rolling tarp system are a unique way to move high-end or classic automobiles.
Our roll-off are equipped with a 28ft deck that will back up to the dock or lay completely flat on the ground to allow for easy loading or unloading of machinery. The tri-axle roll-off trucks are capable of carrying heavier loads up to 30,000lbs 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 that we can use 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 and the fleet now contains 7 Float tractors and 14 different use trailers. We have 4 Landoll sliding axle type trailers, 4 low-boy or removable goose neck trailers including a trombone trailer for extra-long loads and several van and flatbed trailers. We regularly move excavators, loaders, dozers, rollers, graders, backhoes, pavers, etc. in and around the London area. We also move larger pieces of factory machinery and damaged trailers that can’t be towed safely down the road. Our trombone float trailer even stretches to accommodate a 53ft trailer for transport. We are capable of moving a wide range of heavy duty construction and road machinery equipment. From heavy loads to over width loads we always try and accommodate our customer’s needs.
Elgin and Landoll Tilt and Slide Trailer are used for large heavy machinery loads such as large booms, rollers, pavers, 40ft containers, loads of multiple forklifts or aerial lifts, moulds or dies, telehandlers, zoom-booms, scissor lifts, etc. Our Tilt and Load floats are outfitted with winches and perfect for moving sea containers or other pieces of equipment that no longer run and need to be pulled on and moved or taken back for service.
Removable Gooseneck / Low-Boy Trailers are used to move large construction machinery such as excavators, large aerial lifts, dozers, rollers, backhoes, etc. They are generally used for moving heavier loads with height restrictions and are capable of moving loads up to 100,000 lbs.
