It is common to see a scissor lift driving through your local big box department store as associates lift merchandise onto high shelves or even on city sidewalks as painters and contractors use them to reach high levels of a building. As handy as these machines are for those that use them daily, it is not convenient, nor is it legal, to drive them from one location to another.

A-1 Auto Transport, Inc, has worked with contractors and businesses for more than 30 years and has the experience necessary to transport scissor lifts and other heavy machinery to and from jobsites, department stores and other locations nationwide. Need to ship internationally? Our team can help with international shipments as well.

Transportation Options

When it comes to transport options for scissor lifts, the most ideal, as well as economical mode of transport is open air transport. Using this method, the scissor lift is loaded onto a flatbed trailer and then secured in place. It will then ship quickly to the destination.

Container shipping is also available, but the cost is generally going to be more than it is with open air transport. With container shipment, the scissor lift is placed inside a large shipping trailer to protect it from the elements including weather, debris and people.

The Cost of Shipping a Scissor Lift

The overall cost to ship a scissor lift will vary depending on a few things.

Weight: The weight of the scissor lift will impact the fuel efficiency as well as the weight limit that the driver can haul. The more the load weighs, the more it will cost to transport.

Size: Larger items take up more space which means that it may cost more to transport. This is true due to carriers not being able to haul for more customers at one time as well as due to the possibility of having to use a larger carrier for delivery.

Distance: The distance from where the scissor lift is picked up to where it needs delivered will factor into the overall cost for shipment.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
