Mechanical Tree Shaker Transport Services

A mechanical tree shaker is a farm tractor that gently shakes fruit trees so the fruits can fall into a collection container. The shaker head features a mechanical arm that grabs the tree trunk and generates the shake that leads to the harvest of fruits.

Mechanical tree shakers are big and heavy equipment, so shipping them is a challenging task. To ship this type of equipment safely, many businesses and farm owners prefer to have their mechanical tree shakers transported by experts.

The cost of shipping a mechanical tree shaker will vary widely because many things influence the overall cost. However , there is no single cost for shipping such a piece of equipment.

Cost Shipping Factors for Mechanical Tree Shaker

The destination and insurance are a few factors that determine the final cost of shipping a mechanical tree shaker.

The Destination

The destination you have in mind will affect the final bill the shipping company gives you. Some locations cost more to get to than others.

Some destinations are farther than others, and ; the farther the destination, the more resources are required to ship there. This will lead to a higher shipping cost.

Additionally, some destinations are pretty close but difficult to reach. If offloading the mechanical tree shaker will be difficult at the destination, then the shipping cost will be added. Also, places with poor access will incur higher shipping rates.


Insurance is a must when shipping heavy equipment. There is no getting around such a thing. After all, you would want protection for pieces of heavy equipment since they are heavy investments.

Insurance is an added cost and can be a significant addition depending on the type of insurance you are getting for your mechanical tree shaker. First , there is the low-tier mandatory insurance, which doesn't do much and costs little.

However, if you want full protection for your tree shaker, you should get something with better coverage. It will cost you more money and will significantly increase your shipping costs, but it is well worth it.

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

It is a fact that you are better off hiring a company to ship your mechanical tree shaker for you. It is safer and easier than doing it yourself. But what sort of company should you hire? For a start, you should hire an adequately equipped company that you can afford.

You will have a different shipping experience depending on the type of equipment a shipping company has. The company you hire must be adequately equipped to load, transport, and offload your heavy equipment.

Shipping costs can be high, so you shouldn't just assume you or your company can afford it. Instead , get a feel of the industry standard and pick the company that offers the highest quality for that average price.

Preparing Your Mechanical Tree Shaker for Shipping

  • Before submitting the tree shaker, wash it thoroughly with a detergent and rinse with clean water.
  • Check the tires of the mechanical tree shaker and other mechanical bits and fix any faults you find.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

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.
