Cost For Shipping
How would I know the cost for shipping and how it works, can you please explain?
The Price is based mainly on the volume of the shipment. Our invoice will be based on actual costs of Packing, packing supplies, Labour, Pickup, Palletizing, loading, shipping, clearing and delivering the shipment. There are ways to determine an estimated cost in advance. On small shipments we can determine estimated cost by analyzing the list of items to be packed and shipped. The more details from the customer, we can be more precise and provide an accurate or closer to the accurate estimate.
Safety Of The Shipment
Can you brief up on the SAFETY OF THE SHIPMENT?Due to innovations and advancements in the transportation industry, shipping internationally is nearly as safe as shipping domestic. There are some additional hazards to which an international shipment can be exposed, starting with the ocean. Some countries are known for heat and humidity and some have security concerns. Our 16 years of experience has taught us practical lessons on how to deal with each of these, thus reducing them to procedures as common as shipping locally.
Tips On Packing
Can you please provide some tips on Packing?We do not recommend Home Depot boxes for international shipping. We can supply you with specially made cartons, for everything from mattresses to clothing and mirrors. The added protection of mover-provided cartons may avoid damage that results from the use of poor-quality packing materials. Your alternative is to collect boxes discarded by your grocery or liquor store. Save old newspapers for use in packing, but remember that ink may rub off and stain clothing or other items. *WARNING: Insect eggs and insects such as roaches can travel in food boxes.
