Make sure the length of the VARCHAR variable and/or column is long enough to hold the decimal or numeric value:

I appreciate if someone can show me how,

I understand the concept that i have to increase the length of the field,but I don't seem to be able to put it together.

Try it this way:
SELECT  WayBillNumber ,
        ShipmentDate ,
        RepAccountNo ,
        RepName ,
        ShippingAddress ,
        City ,
        Province ,
        SpecialNote ,
        PostalCode ,
FROM    scanitem
WHERE   RepAccountNo = '000000000040870'
        AND shipmentdate > = DATEADD(day, -2, GETDATE())

If Shipmentdate contains time (as well as a date) then you may want to consider changing the condition from:
AND shipmentdate >= DATEADD(day, -2, GETDATE())
AND shipmentdate >= DATEADD(DAY, -2, DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, GETDATE()))
