Woodchipper Hauling Services

A woodchipper is also called a tree chipper and refers to a piece of heavy equipment that is used mainly by farmers to cut the limbs of trees, tree barks, fresh branches, and leaves.

A wood chipper isn't a small piece of equipment, so transporting it will require a big vehicle like a truck or a trailer. Most owners of woodchippers don't have a suitable vehicle to transport the machine over long distances.

Since many farmers and companies don't have adequate vehicles to transport wood chippers, the only option becomes to hire a heavy equipment shipping company to transport the machine.

Cost Shipping Factors for Woodchippers

The shipping cost of a woodchipper varies from scenario to scenario depending on some factors. The factors that affect the cost of shipping a woodchipper include the urgency of the shipment and the insurance.


How quickly you need the woodchipper at the destination will affect what you pay for shipping it.

Generally, the quicker you want the machine to arrive at the destination, the higher you will pay for shipping. This is because it will cost the professional transportation company more to deliver your equipment urgently.

Additionally, the time you contact the company for shipping will also affect the shipping cost. If you contact the company a day before you want the item shipped, you will pay more than if you contacted the company a week prior.


Transporting heavy equipment can be complicated, so you will need insurance, which will influence the shipping cost.

Heavy equipment and oversize load purchases are investments, and these investments need to be insured. So, keep in mind that the more coverage you desire for your Woodchipper, the more you will pay for insurance.

The value of the equipment and the age of the machine you want to ship will affect what you pay for insurance. This, in turn, will affect the shipping cost.

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

Hiring a shipping company to transport your Woodchipper is a big deal because if you don't get it right, you might have a terrible shipping experience. You should look for a company with a good reputation and one that has a wide reach.

A good reputation is the biggest advertisement a shipping company can have. It shows that the company consistently delivers high-quality shipping services. Ensure you check the reputation of the company you want to hire before you sign any agreement.

You might be shipping your Woodchipper to a remote location. So, you will need a company that ships heavy equipment to your destination. Don't assume the company ships to your destination. Verify by asking the managers if the company's reach extends to your delivery location.

Preparing Your Woodchipper for Shipping

  • Make sure you document the condition of the Woodchipper before you send it to the shipping crew.
  • Remove all personal items like jewelry and photographs from your equipment before letting the shipping company take it away.

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.
