When the need arises to haul oversized loads that will not fit into a conventional trailer, you may want to consider the convenience and versatility RGN trucking services can offer. When transporting heavy machinery or large equipment, you will likely require some variation of a lowboy trailer. RGN trailers – one classification of lowboys where the trailer sits low to the ground – provide a unique feature; once detached from the truck’s cab, the hydraulic-powered gooseneck can be lowered to the ground to create a ramp to drive self-powered cargo directly onto the trailer. This unique attribute eliminates the need for specialized machinery, such as forklifts or cranes, to load and unload cargo.
Since the late 1950s, RGN trucking companies have transported overweight, over-height, and oversize cargo. Depending on the configuration of the axles, RGN trailers can carry freight weighing up to 68,000 kg (150,000 lbs). The well-space allows for about 9 m (29’) of deck space, with a maximal width of roughly 2.5 m (8.5’) and a maximum height of 3.5 m (11.5’). Just as safe and secure as a standard flatbed, RGN trailer shipping can handle much greater freight capacity.
We handle a wide variety of freight that include dolly trailers, overhead cranes, generators, backhoe loaders, compactors, traffic control devices, telehandlers, dump trucks, landscape loaders, service/utility trucks, skid-steer loaders, pile hammers, as well as waste and recycling equipment. As regulations will vary, dependent upon the jurisdiction(s) through which you are shipping, it is imperative to partner with a transport company with the experience to ensure RGN trailer loads in Canada and the USA are compliant before transporting any cargo. Our team can also assist with route planning and any permits required during transport.

Greg Grimes got it done. I had an unusual shipment that he took on seriously and professionally. Greg was very responsive and communicative, worked many different angles to get me a good price, and overcame several logistical challenges. I would definitely use MGA again.
We have made several trips to Toronto for the 2013 PGA Championship and over the course of those trips we have gotten to know the principles of this organization well. They are headquartered in Toronto and are great people. If you need to reach out to them, ask for Greg or Brad Grimes and let them know you heard of them through this note and they will take good care of you.
Can count on MGA for all my shipping requirements. Fantastic personnel and service.
