Posted: February 9, 2015
There are certain measures you can take to make sure your heavy equipment shipment can go smoothly and efficiently.
Be sure that you provide the same dimensions (Length, Width, Height and Weight) to everyone you request a quote from.
ALL CARGO IS REMEASURED BY INDEPENDENT SURVEYERS ONCE IT ARRIVES AT THE PORT.
It's important to know that cost of your heavy machinery cargo is recalculated at the port based upon revised dimensions. What about if cargo dimensions are not the same. How it effects you? You will have to pay for the difference. But how is about if you don’t have the extra money to ship heavy machinery overseas? Now you are in trouble, you have to have it hauled off the port and stored in a lot. That’s more money wasted right there.
Just remember, a few inches difference can cost you 20% to 50% more to ship your cargo overseas. So, be sure that you provide the SAME dimensions (Length, Width, Height and Weight) to everyone you request a quote from. Here in the Heavy Machinery department at Logisticargo USA, we give out quotes daily. Don’t be fooled by low cost quotes. You may regret it later.
If you ever want to find someone to measure your vehicle to get the cost quote, you can find someone on Craigslist and pay them.
