Garden accessories shipment is one of the most popular kinds of shipment that we might need through our life. Some garden accessories – mostly smaller accessories (such as rakes, leaf blowers and so on) – you can easily transport in your car booth or even on the backseat. Things get a bit more complicated when you want to transport any garden supplies larger in size and heavyness, for example a mower.
Shipping a mower looks like a pretty uncomplicated job. If you have a vehicle that’s big enough, you probably are considering transporting it by yourself. Transporting a lawnmower on your own is of course possible however it takes a bit of knowledge as well as preparation. Firstly, you have to empty the mower from all the fluids. Flooding filters with any liquid can cause serious damage. And even after you drain all the liquids, it is good to transport a lawnmower vertical. Other than that it is important to ship a lawnmower in a cardboard that is as close to its dimensions as possible. Ideally, you should ship it in its initial box (it is closely fitted to its dimensions), but if you no longer have it, any cardboard can work, assuming its size is right. The most important thing is that when you placed the mower inside a cardboard, there should be as little free space left as possible. Use foam chips or textiles to fill the empty spaces (it will help to absorb any vibrations on the road).
There is garden equipment that is much too big to ship it on your own. So if you have to transport e.g. an agricultural mower, you’ll require assistance from a professional transport provider – a person who has both experience as well as a car fitted to harmlessly transport your garden equipment. Hiring a transport company is often rather costly, but happily there is more than one place where you can hire a professional transport provider. To get professional transport in reasonable price, try using a transport marketplace, like Clicktrans.
You can list your delivery for free and wait to receive quotes from transport providers from all over Europe. If any of the transport providers are going to travel on similar route to the one you need, your delivery can become a part of his load, which will allow you to lower the price of the service significantly. Additionally using a transport marketplace to hire a transport provider allows you to communicate directly with the person who is going to be transporting your garden equipment. Thanks to that you may work out all the details of the job and ensure, that your load will be shipped harmlessly.
Whenever shipping garden equipment, shielding it against atmospheric conditions is less important as garden equipment is obviously meant for outdoor work. What is very important whenever transporting garden machinery, is making sure that the load is protected against mechanical damages. If your garden machinery is too large to place it in a box, you can use pieces of Styrofoam, bubble foil or even pieces of newspaper to wrap the most vulnerable elements such as handles and all the parts that protrude from the equipment.
When choosing the best hauler it is of course smart to read feedback given by earlier customers. Also when you want to transport some larger, expensive garden equipment it is best to find out if the hauler you are thinking about has carrier liability insurance. That way if anything happens to your delivery on the road, you will be entitled to some compensation.
Is there anything else you have to bear in mind when shipping garden equipment? If your equipment is … powered by electricity, you need to wait couple of hours after transportation before you start using it again. It’s especially important if the garden equipment was shipped in lower temperatures (close to sub-zero temperatures).
