Why Plows Require Freight Shipping

Plows are used by vehicles and machines to move dirt and snow. In the northern states, snow plows are used every winter. Plows mounted on the front of trucks need special hitches. They remove snow and ice from roads, parking lots, and driveways. Airports use large, custom plows to clear their runways, roadways, and terminal docking areas. Plow come in several styles, such as straight blade, v-plow, winged, pusher, utv, and skid-steer. When a new or used plow is sold, it must be shipped as freight due to weight and size. Standard parcel carriers cannot send plows. Freight trucking services offer flexible methods of transporting plows. They move large, heavy items like plows every day.

How Do You Prepare for Freight Shipping?

Plows are durable and heavy. Plows don’t need a lot of packaging materials for shipping. Placing a plow blade on a pallet for easy mobility is the best way. Wrap the edge in shrink wrap to prevent any potential scratches. Secure the blade to the pallet with banding, so it doesn’t slide or fall over. Make sure that the plow does not extend beyond the surface area of the pallet at any point, even if it is a point that is not touching the pallet. Also, ensure the plow covers at least 65% of the surface area of the pallet. Using a pallet that is too large can result in extra charges.

How Much Will It Cost to Ship of Plow?

Shipping a plow will depend on several variables.

  • “To” and “From” zip codes

  • NMFC (freight class) of the plow – the freight class of a snow plow can range from 77.5 for a vehicle or tractor mount all the way up to 200 for a rotary plow with vehicle mounting on the pallet

  • Any special considerations
