“You are too expensive, I got a quote for much less!!!”
Yeah, we’ve heard that one before! Here in the Heavy Machinery department at Ship Overseas, we give out quotes daily. Don’t be fooled by low cost quotes. You may regret it later. Port re-measurement
ALL CARGO IS REMEASURED BY INDEPENDENT SURVEYERS ONCE IT ARRIVES AT THE PORT.
The cost of shipping your cargo is now recalculated based upon these revised dimensions, not what the freight forwarder may have sent you as a quote. What does this mean? You will need to come up with the money to pay for the difference. What, you don’t have the extra money to ship construction vehicles overseas? Now you have to have it hauled off the port and stored in a lot. That’s more money wasted right there.
Be sure that you provide the SAME dimensions (Length, Width, Height and Weight) to everyone you request a quote from.
Remember, just a few inches difference can result in a 20% to 50% INCREASE in shipping cost. We had a customer who bought a caterpillar online from a dealership. When the truck driver arrived to pick up the caterpillar, it was too big to fit on the platform. The customer had to pay for his mistake for not verifying the length, width, height and weight of his purchase. The measurement was double what he had given to us.
If you ever want to find someone to measure your vehicle, you can find someone on Craigslist and pay them. Qualified people would be anyone in construction, mechanics, pip fitters, and more.
