How to Ship Scissor Lifts

Since scissor lifts are deemed as heavy equipment due to their large size and heavier weight, they are too difficult to ship by any means other than the proper transport equipment and haulers.

Hiring a transport company to ship your scissor lift isn’t a process that should be rushed, especially if you must use these shipping services often to get your scissor lift from work site to work site. You’ll want to make sure you hire a trust worthy shipping company with heavy equipment shipping experience and all of the right tools.

How Much Will It Cost To Ship Scissor Lifts?

There are a number of different things that impact the cost of shipping a scissor lift. Here are a few of the factors that will influence the price of shipping your lift.

  • Dimensions & size – The larger and bulkier your scissor lift is, the more it will cost to ship due to heavier weight, complexity when securing the load, and other such factors. In contrast, smaller scissor lifts can be shipped for a lower rate.
  • Weight – During shipping, weight influences fuel consumption, the difficulty of loading and unloading your scissor lift, and a number of other things. The heavier your load is, the more expensive it will be to transport.
  • Full or partial load – For larger scissor lifts, you may need full-load shipping. In other words, your scissor lift will be the only object we’re transporting. Naturally, this is more expensive. However, some scissor lifts may be small and light enough to send them as partial loads. We’ll load our truck with your scissor lift and some other equipment that’s being sent near your destination. By combining shipments with other companies using our partial truckload shipping, you can save a lot of money.
  • Required delivery date – The sooner you need your scissor lift shipped, the more you’ll pay. Rush delivery fees and other costs are common when you need rapid shipping for your equipment – so we recommend planning in advance to avoid these costs.
  • Total shipping distance – As you may expect, the cost of shipping a scissor lift from coast-to-coast is much higher than the cost of shipping it to a local job site or your neighboring state. Counter-intuitively, though, the price-per-mile of long-haul shipping is lower, compared to short-haul shipping, due to economies of scale.
  • Open-air or container shipping – Open-air shipping is the cheapest way to ship your scissor lift. It will be loaded onto a flatbed trailer, secured in place, and then sent to its destination – but it will be exposed to the elements. Container shipping is usually a bit more expensive. Your scissor lift will be loaded into a standard 40-foot trailer, which will protect it from the elements while it’s in transit.

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!
