Stop Mowing Down Your Margins: Streamline Your Riding Lawnmower Deliveries

Ah, Spring is finally here; birds are chirping in the trees, flowers are blooming in our gardens and pretty soon the scent of freshly cut grass will fill the air until Fall.

As a retailer, you may both rejoice and dread it when a customer buys a brand-new riding lawnmower. Getting a sale is great, but shipping those contraptions to their new owners can be a pain in the *grass* - pun intended!

The Canadian lawn mower market, including riding lawnmowers, is expected to reach USD 2.76 billion by 2027, growing at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7.10%, according to market research firm Arizton. This means a lot of sales growth for retailers, but it also means more shipping headaches.

Let’s look at some of the challenges a retailer might face when shipping riding lawnmowers, and what can be done to overcome them.

The Thorny Issues of Delivering Riding Lawnmowers

Let's face it, those beauties are beasts to ship. You can’t just tuck them under your arm, and even standard shipping simply won't cut it for these bulky and heavyweight machines.

Size & Weight: It’s like you’re shipping a baby elephant - some of the mowers can weigh up to 800-1000 lbs, and your run of the mill logistics company may not necessarily have the expertise to transport such heavy loads. Do you really want to trust your customer deliveries to 2 local guys with a truck? We don’t think so either!

Delivery Costs: Yes, riding lawnmowers are expensive to ship to customers, especially for one-off deliveries. Smaller local shippers may seem to have a cost advantage sometimes, but may not offer the flexibility you need to run your business efficiently. You don’t cut your lawn with a pair of scissors; so you need the right delivery partner for your business.

Scheduling can be problematic and holding and moving such inventory creates storage and warehousing headaches. The local Ma & Pa shippers can’t handle your storage requirements effectively. Customers expect fast and efficient deliver, and coordinating deliveries with customers greatly affects their satisfaction, which can lead to bad Google reviews for your business.

 

Effortless Lawnmower Delivery

Take the easy road when it comes to delivering riding lawnmowers: don’t be allergic to a logistics company that specializes in oversized and heavyweight equipment.

Why?

Expertise: Companies that specialize in heavy and bulky items have the expertise and the proper training for staff to handle your shipments. Don’t put your staff in a position to get hurt due to a lack of training.

Storage & Warehousing: Specialized logistics company have ample storage and warehousing space to accommodate all of your shipments. Why encumber your own facilities when you can manage your inventory remotely through your partner?

Cost-Efficiency: While it’s tempting to think it could be more cost-effective to handle everything in-house or to contract some small local outfit, the reality is that it’s more cost-effective to outsource storage and delivery of heavy items to a reliable partner. It also frees up your time to focus on your core business: selling products.

Customer Satisfaction: Quick and efficient deliveries are one of the highest customer satisfaction factors for a purchase of this type. Client communications is critical, and delivering on-time is paramount to get great reviews for your business.
