Cost Shipping Factors for Woodchippers
A woodchipper is a large piece of equipment that weighs several tons. You’ll need to ensure that your tow vehicle has sufficient towing capacity and that it’s operated by an experienced driver. Hiring a professional transportation company is a great way to ensure that your chipper is transported safely and delivered on time. We recommend calling one of our transportation specialists to get an accurate price quote for woodchipper shipping. Here are some of the primary factors that will influence the price that you pay for shipping:
- Size and weight– A heavier piece of equipment will require more fuel to transport, increasing your shipping costs.
- Distance-Your shipping costs will be calculated by mileage and other factors, and you’ll pay more to transport your woodchipper to another state than you will to transport it to a local site.
- Urgency-Time is money for farmers and landscapers, and we can help you schedule expedited transportation if you’re prepared to spare no expense. If you’re on a leaner budget, you should schedule shipping as far in advance as possible to get the best rates.
- Insurance-You have a significant capital investment in your woodchipper, and you’ll want to ensure that it’s insured in the unlikely event that it’s damaged in transit. Be sure to consider the value and age of your equipment when purchasing insurance to ensure that you have sufficient coverage.
Preparing Your Woodchipper for Shipping
Your transportation specialist will schedule your pick-up and send you a confirmation to inform you when the driver will arrive. You won’t have to make any special preparations to get ready for your pick-up, but you should clear any loose debris from the chutes and spouts once you’re finished using the woodchipper.
Make sure that you document the woodchipper’s condition when it’s picked up in the unlikely event that it’s damaged in transit and you need to file an insurance claim.

How heavy is a woodchipper?
Woodchippers range in size from small chippers suitable for home use all the way up to large-scale industrial chippers that weigh up to 100,000 pounds. A woodchipper with a 12″ disc is ideal for most agricultural and landscaping job sites and typically weighs between 5,000-8,000 pounds. You’ll need to ensure that your truck has sufficient towing and/or payload capacity to transport the woodchipper. Most woodchipper trailers will have a stamp or plate affixed to the chassis that will include the trailer’s weight, and you can also find that information in your owner’s manual. Be sure you know your woodchipper’s model number when you call for your transportation estimate so we can dispatch a suitable tow vehicle or flatbed trailer.
How do you transport a woodchipper?
It’s crucial to ensure that your woodchipper is ready for transport before you get on the road. Review the transportation procedures in your owner’s manual carefully, and don’t hesitate to develop a written checklist of your own. Here are the key things to inspect before shipping:
- Check the condition of the tires, including the tread and tire pressure.
- Check your brake lights, signal lights, and back-up lights.
- Check your hitch and breakaway cables.
- Secure all latches and panels.
- Check the exterior of the chassis for wear and tear.
Be sure to address all service issues before departure, obtain any necessary permits, and ensure that your license and registration are up-to-date.
Can bamboo be put through a woodchipper?
Unless otherwise stated in your owner’s manual, putting bamboo in your woodchipper is not safe. A few woodchipper models can shred bamboo, but that’s currently the exception. You can safely shred dry wood, wet wood, pine cones, acorns, grass, and leaves in your woodchipper. You shouldn’t attempt to shred lumber, rocks, vines, palm fronds, animal waste, or fresh pinewood that oozes sap. Make sure to review your owner’s manual to see what items are allowed and prohibited with your particular woodchipper model before placing it into service.
