How to Ship Mowers

When shipping standard or riding lawn mowers, most transport companies will suggest the open-air method of shipping to customers. This form of transport doesn't necessarily provide the utmost protection for shipments but with the design of a lawn 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 they must travel.

General Facts

  • Shipping mowers refers to the process of transporting lawn mowers from one location to another.

The Different Types of Lawn Mower Transport Methods

  • Roll-On/Roll-Off - The RO/RO method is a popular and inexpensive way for shipping a variety of lawn movers and other heavy equipment overseas to another nation. A flatbed ship is a vessel used but there are some height and weight restrictions.
  • Flat Rack Shipping - This open-air method for shipping lawn mowers 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 your lawn tractor 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. You may also want to ship multiple mowers at a time or their parts, accessories, and attachments.
  • Lift-On/Lift-Off - The LO/LO method is best used for shipping non-operable vehicles, engines, farm equipment, and other types of heavy loads. A crane will lift your mower on top of the trailer or flatbed ship where it is secured for transport to its destination.

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.
