How Cleveland Power & Performance Professionally Ships Your Chassis

Here at Cleveland Power & Performance we routinely sell our rolling Chassis’ to customers out of state, and sometimes to international customers. Often, delivery of a chassis in our trailer is not an option, so we have to break them down to ship in crates. Today we will be going over the process showing in detail how we break our chassis’ down for shipping.

We start out with the complete chassis with all the accessories and harnesses in a box. After checking that every part of the chassis is there, we drain all the fluids from it.

Once all the fluids are drained from the chassis, we remove the lines and exhaust.

At this point we would then attach the engine to a engine hoist to hold the front steady.
Once the front end is attached we disconnect it from the torque tube. With the front end separated, we then remove the engine from the front suspension.

Once the front suspension and the engine are separated, we put the engine on a cart and strap it down.
We do this to assure we can move it around safely with out worry.

Then we will repeat the process with the rear suspension. The carrier will be unbolted from the transmission, and the wheels removed from the rear end.

Now the last part we do for disassembling the chassis is separating the torque tube and the transmission. Once that is done we inspect all the parts yet again to assure they are all good, and spin the wheels again to assure they are unbent.

At this point all the parts are placed upon carts and strapped down to assure their safety as we transport it to the Freight Department. We also open the box of accessories and harnesses to inspect them, to assure they are ready to be repackaged to ship.

Once the contents of the chassis box is placed onto our picturing area, we go over each part and inspect them yet again to make sure our customers receive everything they need for the chassis. As we inspect each part, we wrap them one at a time and repackage them into two boxes for shipping.

After all parts of the chassis are inspected, we sign off that the parts are good and we put “NO OIL” tags on the different sections. We do this to make sure the customer who receives the part knows with out a doubt that we have drained and inspected the whole chassis before it gets crated to ship. At this point we take all the sections and parts down to our freight department.  The chassis is divided into two crates for safety reasons.


The first crate for the chassis starts with the front suspension being set unto a reinforced pallet. The front suspension is then banded to the pallet and the mid pipe and torque tube are placed into their positions.

At this point we add a mid level shelf to the crate. This allows us to place one of the chassis boxes and the mufflers on this crate.

When all the parts are were they need to be, we secure everything currently on the pallet with shrink wrap. Then we build up a second section of the crate and place the rear suspension on it. The rear suspension is also banded.

With everything for this crate secured, we go over the whole thing one more time before we finish the crate. Once the crate is complete, we finish it off with a few layers of shrink wrap and place the shipping tags on it.


DSC03718 DSC03739


With the first crate done we start on the second one. This one starts out as another reinforced pallet which we place the transmission and engine on. Both of these parts are then secured so they can not move. The engine is also bolted down to the pallet.


DSC03750 DSC03762


With the bottom of the crate complete, we move on to the next section. We build a small shelf for the second chassis box, before we move onto the top section of the crate. The last thing to be placed onto this crate would be the four ( 4 ) wheels placed on the top shelf of the crate.


DSC03764 DSC03771


Now as with the last crate we shrink wrap all the parts, and complete the crate. With the crate complete, we now shrink wrap the whole crate.


DSC03780 DSC03792


Now both crates are completed they are set out of the way by the freight door to await pick up.
We make sure all the proper labels are placed upon them, and that all the shipping information is correct for the chassis.


DSC03797 DSC03799


Now the final step in the whole process is when we finally load the chassis crates onto the freight truck.
At this point the chassis is on its way to its new owner, all safe and sound.

If you need to ship your chassis internationally, we fully crate and enclose them with plywood.

This is how we break down and crate a whole chassis. We make sure to inspect it all, along the way, to assure that every part of the chassis reaches the customer in full working order. As always, feel free to email or call us with any questions at clevelandpap@yahoo.com and 866-236-5031.

FedEx Shipping

We at Cleveland Power and Performance are proud to show you how we package and ship our parts.
We sell and ship parts everyday and wish to make sure the part gets to the buyer the way it is suppose to arrive. Every step is handled by our professional boxers with the utmost care and is packaged in such a way to reduce any chance of damage to the parts. The following steps will show you exactly how we box our parts to assure the safe delivery of them.

First we pull the part out of the warehouse and unwrap the part. Each part is the reinspected again to assure everything is how it is suppose to be.

Then each part gets re-wrapped to protect the part from acquiring any minor marks. The part is then ready to be boxed.

Each part that is boxed is cushioned with expanding foam from our foam machine or with crumpled paper from another machine. This assures that every part is secured in the box. Which will make it less likely to move around inside the box during shipping.

After the part is secured with the foam. The box is closed up and taped securely so the part will arrive to the customer unopened. We then put our label on the box to ship it out.

The last step we do is send the parts out with FedEx to assure the customer gets their parts in one piece. We can ship both domestic and international depending on were the customer is located. Express shipping is available per buyers request as well. As always, feel free to email or call us with questions clevelandpap@yahoo.com and 866-236-5031.
