Having the right company to haul your oil drilling supplies and waste can make a big difference to your whole operation. The right company can haul everything that you need to be transported for a rate that you can afford. There are three main questions that you should look at to help you decide which company is the right one for your needs: What things you need to be hauled, what types of trailers you need, and what types of companies can work best with yours.

What Do You Need To be Hauled?

Some companies will specialize in one type of hauling, such as clean water, and others will be able to haul anything you throw at them. The more diverse your needs are, the more you will save by going with a transport company which can meet all your drill cutting hauling needs. You can usually find a list of substances and items that a company is certified to deal with on their website or find contact information to ask them directly.

What Types of Trailers Do You Need?

Each item you need to be hauled to or from your worksite will require a particular container to be moved in. This keeps everyone safe as well as stop your supplies from being damaged in transport. This means that when you are looking for trucking companies to use, you will want to make sure that they have access to the right containers for your needs. For example, if you are transporting frozen food supplies to your site, then you will need a refrigerated container; and, if you are transporting drill cuttings to a disposal site then you will need a trailer with dumping capabilities.

What Types of Companies Can Help?

In addition to the services and trailers offered by each trucking company, you will want to check the certifications of these businesses to ensure that they can legally haul the things you need to be transported in the areas you operate. This means checking certifications for federal, state and local transportation regulations as well as Occupational Safety and Health Administration requirements. If you are transporting over country borders, then you will want to also make sure that the company is internationally certified.

Before signing a contract with a transportation company, you will want to make sure that it is the right one for your needs. You can do this by checking the services and trailer types offered as well as which certifications the company has. This information is usually readily available on the company’s website or you could ask your industry contacts for good recommendations.
