By concretecharlottenc on October 18, 2022

Precast concreteis a type of construction material made from concrete poured in a mold. It is very heavy, so it's often used to build bridges and highways.

It is important to safely transport these oddly-shaped structures.

Let's take a closer look at how to transport precast concrete.

Wait until it's fully cured

Because transporting precast concrete can cause stress to the product, it's important to make sure it's fully cured before moving it. Otherwise, lifting or moving it too soon may cause it to crack.

The right professionals will have a system in place for timing and determining when the product is officially ready for transport.

Determine the equipment needed

Do you know what kind of equipment will be needed to lift the concrete on and off the truck?

You'll likely require a hydraulic clamp or forklift.

Understanding the equipment you need will help you determine the right heavy haul company for the job. Choosing the wrong company to lift your precast concrete can result in disasters,
