Heavy Machinery Shipping

Shipping Plant Machinery Worldwide

There are some common aspects with heavy machinery shipping such as; handling, cleaning, documentation and the UK haulage. We have been successfully shipping machinery all over the world for the last 10 years and have vast amounts of experience in the successful collection and shipment by many modes of transport to date. From site pick up to delivery to the destination port, we have everything covered including cleaning the cargo to meet with quarantine standards.

So whatever you’re trying to ship – we can handle it professionally and on time. From tractors, Excavators, jcb’s, agricultural machinery & bob cats we can ship it safely. We have regular clients that return back to us every month because they have realised that we can handle their cargo professionally every time. We believe that our professional, no-nonsense attitude allows our clients to have complete confidence in our services every time. We strive to be as transparent as possible, to instil confidence in our abilities yet remain customer focused throughout the process.

Costs for Shipping Heavy Plant Machinery Overseas?

When working out your machinery shipping costs, we will always need to know the length, width and height to be able to accurately quote you. All rates for high and heavy cargo will be based upon these dimensions. For example say you want to ship a KMC Kootrac / Kootney Tractor to Jebel Ali, the cost based on dimensions being 5.15 x 2.62 x 3.25mtrs will be £2195.00. Whereas to ship it to Australia will cost £3895.00 or to Port Sudan for £3650.00. All machinery will be shipped either by RORO or breakbulk services from or to the UK on safe, purpose built vessels equipped to handle any sized cargo by sea.

Vehicle Collection Services

So if you need it collected, or just need it shipped, we can arrange this with our fully insured drivers and collection team. No machine is too big, we have the resources at hand to help make your life easier so that your shipment is hassle free from start to finish. We can collect your machinery and take care of all customs and port formalities. If cranes are required on site, we can arrange this no problem.

Document Requirements for Shipping Plant Machinery

When shipping machinery from the UK, we would require copies of the following documentation:

  • V5C (or title document) for the vehicle
  • Purchase/Sales Invoice of the vehicle
  • Packing list
  • Diagram of the machine and its folding mechanism

We will also need to know the weight of the machinery so we can load this straight on to the vessel without issue. We will always ensure that there is enough straps to keep the machinery from moving whilst in transit and will continually check these throughout. All loading and lashing is handled by highly trained people that guarantee to provide a totally professional service. Our aim is to offer peace of mind whilst your machine is in transit overseas.
