Tips for requesting a machine shipping quote
We receive many requests for transport quotations, usually from casual enquiries from unqualified buyers. Shipping estimates are always referred to logistics companies. We would typically useMorgan Cargo or Hellmann Logistics. You will receive faster service and lower prices by requesting your shipping quotes directly. You can also use any other logistics company of your choice.
Logistics and transport companies will often provide a shipping estimate, and not a shipping quote. This is because the final cost is determined by factors such as fuel and insurance charges that are constantly changing.
