What Will Shipping Cost For 42 x 72 Guardsafe Barrier?

Thursday, November 6, 2014 By: admin

Our 42 x 72 Guardsafe Barrier that ships from Pennsylvania is popular with our East Coast customers.  When waiting for a shipping quote isn’t an option (it can take a few hours to get a shipping rate) check out our past quotes below to get an idea of what it will cost.  If you need an exact cost email us with the quantity needed and zip code at  We will email you back a formal quote ASAP.

Past Quotes, 100lb Barriers From PA:

(3)  Barriers to Lugoff, SC 29078 = $281
(5)  Barriers to New Hyde Park, NY 11042 = $442
(10) Barriers to New Hyde Park, NY 11042 = $554
(12) Barriers to New York, NY 11222 = $515
(25) Barriers to Howell, NJ 07731 = $441
(25) Barriers to King of Prussia, PA 19406 = $459
(52) Barriers to Orlando, FL 32827 = $2,950

How to Read This?

The best way to read this is to find a quote that shipped near you, and then adjust based on quantity.  So let’s say we are in Middleton, NJ and we need (15) barriers.  It cost $441 to get (25) barriers to Howell, NJ (per the above past quotes) and Middleton is a little bit further away.  Assuming it will be about 65% of the price at $286 should be fairly close.  Need an exact quote?  No problem, send us an email at

Extra Notes:

Notice how going right into Manhattan or really anywhere that’s a concrete jungle can add 25-30% to the shipping cost?  This is due to tolls, and how hard it can be for trucks to navigate and deliver in those areas.  So please remember this when estimating your freight cost.  Another note is that forklifts and/or loading docks are always suggested for shipments as these will come on pallets.  We can do a ‘lift gate’ delivery (drivers lowers barriers to the ground for you per their equipment) but this costs an additional $75.

Traffic Barriers from Pennsylvania – How to Estimate Shipping

GuardsafeThis other version of Jersey Barrier comes from PA.  This is a good option if you are on the East Coast or around PA as shipping can be a killer if you are too far away from the warehouse.  We have them in 100lbs, 130lbs and 170lbs.  Check them out here.

Some water is still going to be in the barrier (as they water test them) and it usually adds 3lbs.  So if a barrier is 100lbs use 103lbs when calculating the weight of your shipment.  Also this supplier doesn’t ship on pallets, so no need to calculate the weight of the pallet.

We don’t have a lot of info on this particular barrier because we haven’t sold a lot of them yet, but we do have shipping rates for East Coast shipments.  I will be sure to update this post as new quotes come in.

East Coast

400lbs for $318 to NY = 80 cents a pound

1330lbs for $662 to MD = 50 cents a pound

618lbs for $271 to PA = 44 cents a pound

2781lbs for $718 to NY = 26 cents a pound
