As each custom packing and shipping request is unique, so too is each estimate. Estimates are not guaranteed until 45 – 30 days prior to shipment and may vary based on confirmed weight, dimensions, date, and other pertinent information.
This is a cost recoverable process, and our aim is to achieve the best possible prices for our customers. As a result, we give you the opportunity to pay and deal with recommended freight companies yourself, or we can entirely handle this process.
Your structures will be delivered to your nearest port, and for orders of 5 or more, sea freight will be included in the total order cost.
From the port you can make your own arrangements to site, or we can arrange all freight for you as required.
On quoting your order we will supply an indicative freight price. This price is only an estimate as costs are subject to change 30-45 days before delivery. Some factors that may cause variations in freight costs include; time of year, equipment required, location of site, availability, quantity of order.
Two delivery methods:
- We give you the option to purchase the shipping container in which the structures are supplied. All items will be loaded into the container and delivered as a whole and left for you on site. This is a popular option as these containers can be reused and refurbished.
- The alternate option is to unpack and collect the structures from the port using a freight forwarder. In this instance the equipment will need to be unpacked from the container and delivered loose to site usually by truck or barge. When using this method, you will need to organise equipment to unpack and load on to the organised freight forwarder. If you do not have suitable equipment available, we can arrange this for you at an additional charge.
From previous projects, we have identified a good indication of cost for a single trailer is approximately $5 AUD per km.
Our shipping costs generally do not cover: arrival costs, import duty, local taxes, gst / vat, destuffing, delivery to site. Our experienced handling agents can advise on these costs.
