Read the manual: If you happen to have a manual for your piece of the heavy equipment you might find specific instructions on how to prepare for transport.

Latch your doors: You do not want a door to flap in the wind if not properly closed.

Disconnect the battery: If the equipment has a long journey ahead, consider disconnecting the battery, so it will start on arrival.

Cover the Stack: Simply cover the smokestack prior to transport to stop debris from getting in. Make sure that the covering is secure too.

Select a loading spot: Having the equipment ready in a good spot, so the driver can load easily. Level ground, overhead space, plenty of room for a truck and trailer to load.

Quick wash: You might consider washing down the equipment. This gives you an opportunity to inspect for any damage prior to transport. Also helping to expose tie-down areas for the driver.

Take photos: Take images of the equipment prior to transport and when it is loaded. Great for future reference and very handy if you are shipping for your own customers.
