When snowy weather hits, it’s imperative to be prepared to clear the roads so the daily commute will be safe for drivers. Snow blowers are a much-needed asset during a winter storm and it’s important to have them ready to go when the weather takes a bitter turn. Snow and ice can wreak havoc on traffic flow, and it can be dangerous for commuters to be stranded on the roadside during a winter storm.

Interstate transport of a snow blower is the way to move a snowblower from one location to another. They are terrific at clearing roadways of snow and ice, but it's not efficient to drive one from one state to another as fuel costs and wear and tear would be outrageous.
When shipping via the interstate, a snowblower will be loaded onto a flatbed trailer at a loading dock or using a lift gate service, secured in place with heavy-duty straps, and then transported to the new location. At the new location, the professional drivers will also help to safely lower the equipment from the truck to the ground. This is a safe way to relocate vehicles including standard cars and trucks as well as snow blowers, farm and construction machines and equipment and more.
Depending on which part of the country you want your equipment shipped to, you can have same-day delivery or have it delivered the next business day.
For those that need to ship a snow blower overseas or to Canada or Mexico can easily do so with assistance from our professional team. We have an extensive network of international shippers that we work with to schedule shipment to locations globally. Our team can help with paperwork and with ensuring you follow the proper protocols for importation of the snow blower to another country.

Frequently Asked Questions
Your snow blower's transportation can cost between $1 and $5 per mile. The distance the driver must go, the amount of time it must be shipped, the weight, length, and width of the blower, as well as the weather will all affect the final cost.
The dimensions are significant because they determine whether the organization needs to pay attention to specific issues. For example, snow blowers are typically exempt because of their little weight and tiny size compared to other heavy equipment.
The cost can increase if you ship your snow blower with heavy traffic during a month because the truck uses more fuel.
The best option is usually a flatbed trailer. However, depending on how many you need to be shipped, your delivery could take up an entire trailer, or you can be charged according to the space your snow blower takes up.
This is because flatbed trailers are usually around 25 feet or 50 feet long, which means they can handle many snow blowers. In addition, they usually only weigh up to 400 pounds, so transporting more than one isn't an issue.
The process will be slightly different if you choose enclosed shipping if your delivery is in a cold area.
It’s hard to get an estimate because the entire process may take a while. The best option is to be as efficient as possible, both on your and the company’s side. The reason is that there are some preparation steps that you must handle before the loaders come.
Make sure there's no fuel inside the snow blower, tighten up any wires and unplug any batteries. It shouldn't have any water in it. If you've used the blower before, there may be residue, and the water will freeze and cause issues later. Clean the snow blower thoroughly and wipe it with a cloth.
As for the actual journey, there are many variables the company will consider before giving you an estimate when you get a quote.
A snow blower is relatively small and doesn't weigh so much that you can't transport it easily over short distances. But it's a different matter if you want a shipment taken across multiple states, and you'll need a professional shipping company to handle the process to ensure nothing goes wrong.
You might need multiple snow blowers you just bought taken to where they're needed, which means the shipment may be cheaper than you would've thought, but only a company can tell you the ins and outs of how the process works.
Make sure that the company you hire knows what it's doing, and make your choice carefully. Since snow blowers might need enclosed transport, look into the company’s details and where it operates to get a better idea of how it’ll work.
