Shipping A Mechanical Tree Shaker

Mechanical Tree Shaker Transport Services

A mechanical tree shaker gently shakes trees to let fruits fall into a collection container.

Mechanical tree shakers are big and heavy equipment, so shipping them isn’t a basic task. To ensure their safety, 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. 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 aren’t far but difficult to reach. If offloading the mechanical tree shaker will be difficult at the destination, then the cost of shipping it 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. 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 a company that is adequately equipped and one that you can afford.

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

Shipping costs can be high, and that is why you shouldn’t just assume you or your company can afford it. 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.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
