Shipping HVAC Systems


When shipping HVAC systems, it is essential to distinguish that rooftop and outdoor HVAC systems will have different packaging needs for shipping. Outdoor HVAC systems are commonly attached outside of homes and other buildings. When packaging HVAC systems, stick to shipping inside a crate or on a pallet. Regardless of sending HVAC systems via crate or pallet, ALWAYS ship the equipment inside a cardboard box packed using styrofoam, bubble wrap, cardboard inserts, and buffers. 

Using crates to package the HVAC systems usually results in higher weight and is, therefore, more expensive. While crates do an excellent and reliable job of protecting freight, palletizing your products can be a more economical option. When HVACS are palletized, they rest slightly above the ground, preventing water damage and debris from becoming an issue. Another upside to palletizing freight is that loading and unloading will be easier because a forklift can be utilized. 

Another commonly shipped HVAC system is the rooftop HVAC unit. As the name suggests, rooftop HVAC systems are found on the rooftops of large buildings. They cannot be palletized or crated and instead require crane services. Due to their large size and delicate nature, these systems cannot be moved via forklift. Preparation for the crane service is minimal; ensure the rooftop HVAC is ready for pickup and handled with care.
