IN USA AND USING OUR WAREHOUSE FOR RECEIVING GOODS:
can shop online from many shops and suppliers and have your goods
delivered to one of our warehouses closest to the suppliers. Chose
LCL Cargo for Ocean Consolidations and make a quote for 2 cubic meters
then book it online. You will receive the address for the warehouse
and a special booking number to be placed on all the boxes and
paperwork. You can have the
booking number be the BOX number on the senders shipping document, that
way the warehouse can determine who the cargo belongs to and reserve your
space. The operations dept will inform you of the final cubic meters
and adjust your charges based on the real dimensions.
Storage 30 days. After 30 days the storage is calculated per
day at $0.20 per cubic foot with a minimum charge of $25.00 per week.
If you are shipping LCL or AIR CARGO
RECEIVING AND LOADING AND STORAGE charges are included with the exception of palletizing
or storage over the initial 1 month free
period. All household goods must be palletized. We do
not receive exposed un-boxed household goods at our warehouses. The
final palletized dimensions will be used to re-input the values to the
Air Cargo or
Household Goods and Personal Effects Please Note: Although
90% of all Household Goods are loaded by
the shipper himself or with the help of a crew at the shippers address,
sometimes we can receive Household Goods and Personal
Effects at our stations - provided they are packed and not exposed.
In order to receive them all items must be protected,
properly packed and marked. All furniture must be crated in order to
be received at our warehouse, that is why it is much cheaper if we bring
the container to your door and you load all your household
goods and personal belongings inside the container. We do not
require that you pack or crate your goods if you do the loading yourself
at your home. Crating is available
at most of of our stations and we palletize all household goods.
If you need manpower go to http://www.laborready.com/
and if you need packing supplies go to http://www.uline.com
leave the shipping to us.
To save time and money 90% of Household Goods shippers load their own
container at their home. Exposed items can be loaded. You have
2 hrs free and $100 per hour. Drop and pick for a maximum of 4 days can be
arranged at double drayage rates. Containers can only be spotted 7
days prior to sailing as voyages open gates for releasing and receiving
containers only 7 days prior to sailing. You can try to load your car
using a local flat bed tow truck with straps and braces.
Industrial Shippers normally have dock height loading docks and a live
load is sufficient.
