How to prepare a lawn mower for transportation?
Lawn mower preparation for shipping can be done in several ways depending on its type and model. In case you want to send a lawn mower outside Europe or within the borders of your country, you should pack it accordingly to ensure its safe transportation. Small gardening equipment, including hand-pushed and hover mowers, could be packed in the box. Larger items should be secured to the pallet if possible. Meanwhile, ride-on or tractor mowers are rather large and usually need a tailored offer for shipping.
We provide a list of general guidelines on how to prepare a lawn mower for transportation:
- Drain the tank. Take all the liquids away from their tanks and pour them into the appropriate containers.
- Clean your lawn mower. Take some water and sponge to remove dirt from the wheels and the equipment itself.
- Remove all the attachments. We advise taking a user manual guide that will instruct you on how to detach the accessories safely. After you do that, cover each blade with bubble wrap separately and do the same procedure with other attachments. Then, place all of them in a separate box and seal it.
- Deactivate the spark plug. It is necessary to deactivate the spark plug to disable the engine and turn off the machine.
- Secure a lawn mower to the pallet. In case you decide to ship your equipment as a freight, we ask you to prepare a pallet beforehand. Afterwards, attach your lawn mower to a pallet with belts or bands, cover it with protective sheets, and make sure it is immobile.
Where to find a pallet?
Regardless of a chosen logistics provider, you should prepare the pallet by yourself. We suggest that your local food and pet supply stores usually have plenty of pallets considered as a waste. Furthermore, you can check some advertisements on the web and find the pallet you like.
