How to Ship Mowers

Most transport companies will suggest that an open air method of shipping is used. This form of transport doesn’t necessarily provide the utmost protection but with the design of a mower being for outdoor use, it is rare that damage is an issue. There are several types of open air shipping. The method used for your commercial mowers is mostly dependent on the distance it must travel.

The Different Types of Open Air Transport Methods

  • Roll-On/Roll-Off - The RO/RO method is a popular and inexpensive way to ship heavy equipment overseas to another nation. A flatbed ship is the vessel used but there are some height and weight restrictions.
  • Flat Rack Shipping - This open-air method is favorable due to its cheaper shipping rates and ability to transport all kinds of equipment, machinery and large, heavy motor vehicles. Your mower is strapped securely to a flat rack.
  • Container Shipping - If the equipment you’re transporting can fit into a shipping container then you may want this service for more protection. Since it is sheltered in the container, it stays safe from poor weather conditions and other outside elements that may harm it.
  • Lift-On/Lift-Off - The LO/LO method is best used for shipping non-operable vehicles, engines, farm equipment, and other types of heavy equipment. A crane will lift your mower on top of the trailer or flatbed ship where it is secured for transport.

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.
