When you submit your quote form, we can assess your situation and then help you determine which method is most affordable. We’ll then offer you a choice, putting control in your hands. We can get your heavy construction, industrial and farm equipment to most international destinations, from the United States or Canada.

You have a few different methods to choose from when shipping heavy equipment: Roll on Roll off (RoRo) ship, fixed-end or a collapsible-end flat rack, or container shipping. If you go with the RoRo ship, your machinery is secured to the ship’s deck via straps and braces. Sometimes, though, your equipment may not fit into a standard container or RoRo service is not an option for your destination. In this case, we would suggest a fixed-end or a collapsible-end flat rack. If you’ve got machinery that’s extra wide, it can be shipped on a flat rack. This is a more expensive option, though, so keep that in mind. We’ll usually try to work out another option to help save you some cash. Standard containers may work for your purposes if your machinery isn’t too big, or if we can dismantle the equipment into smaller pieces. This is a popular option and it’s cost efficient.

Once dismantled, your equipment can fit into a 40 foot or 40 HC container, all performed by a professional export packing warehouse that we stand behind. Even though it will cost you to take apart the equipment and put it back together again at the destination, it’s still your best value. And guess what? You save even more money on import duty, which is typically waived when parts are involved rather than a fully assembled piece of machinery. Yet another way to put cash back in your pocket and reduce your bottom line.
