The Frosty Challenges of Shipping Snowblowers For Retailers and Distributors

Fall is here with its vibrant colours, and with the temperatures dropping steadily, it’s time to start preparing our gardens and our backyards for the winter. Yes, winter, that special season that defines us as Canadians, and that we both love and hate at the same time!

Winter brings snow of course, and with the temperature extremes we’ve been witnessing these past years, nobody can predict how much snow we’ll have or when. But one thing is for sure: when the snow falls, we have to shovel! But why break your back – especially as we’re aging – when a brand new snowblower can simplify our lives significantly.

One in 4 Canadian households has a snow blower

According to StatsCan, approximately 1 in 4 Canadian households has a snow blower, and that rises to over 50% in snowbound areas like Barrie and Sudbury just North of Toronto and in the Atlantic region. 88% of Canadians have opted for gas-powered models in 2021, but electric models have been gaining in popularity over the recent years.

The North American market for snowblowers is expected to reach USD$935M by 2027, a CAGR of 6.7% over 5 years, according to research firm Arizton.

 

Retailer & Distributor Challenges in Shipping Snow Blowers to Customers

Big and Bulky

Snow blowers are not your typical e-commerce product. Unlike small gadgets or clothing, they are large and bulky, which complicates the shipping process. These machines come in various sizes, from compact single-stage blowers to massive two-stage beasts designed to tackle the heaviest snowfalls. Retailers must find ways to safely transport these oversized products to customers without causing damage or incurring exorbitant shipping costs.

Pro Tip:  High Energy Transport is specialized in heavy bulky items that need special handling. We’re not afraid of snow, and we’re not afraid of snowblowers either!

 

Snowblowers are heavyweights

Gas-powered snow blowers can be quite large and that means they’re also very heavy, so retailers and distributors need to choose their shipping options carefully to avoid delays and damage in transit.

Pro Tip: Find a transportation partner like High Energy Transport that not only specializes in bulky and overweight shipments, but that also have a state-of-the-art facility to manage your inventory for you as it transits from your providers to your customers.

 

Snow Blower Inventory Management

Managing snow blower inventory is like skating in thin ice; retailers need to anticipate demand accurately. Ordering too few snow blowers risks losing potential sales, while overstocking ties up capital and storage space., and affects your profitability.

Pro Tip: Let a trustworthy transportation partner manage your inventory for you and deliver directly to your customer’s location. Save your space for more inventory you can sell.
