How to prepare heavy machinery for transport? 

There are a few things you should consider before handing your machinery over to our team:

  • Inventory: It’s important to keep a detailed inventory including the make and model of the machine. If the machine will be transported in parts, make sure that every part of the machine is listed separately in the inventory to avoid any mistakes. 
  • Cleanliness: The machinery or equipment you are sending must be thoroughly cleaned before it’s ready for delivery. This is to avoid damages both to your machinery and to other items in the same shipment.
  • Health & Safety: If there are any health and safety concerns involved, such as hazardous materials that have to be transported with the machine, you must let us know in advance to ensure the safety of our staff and your shipment. 
  • Photo Proof: Always take detailed pictures of every item you send. This way you can verify that the machinery has arrived safely and in the same condition as when it was sent.
