Answers to Some of the Most Frequently Asked Questions About Pallet Shipping in the UK
If you are considering shipping pallets from the UK, you probably have many important questions. After all, you want to ensure your goods get to where they need to be, safely and in a timely manner. Here are some answers to the most important and commonly asked questions to help you out.
10 Pallet Shipping FAQs
1. How Do Shipping Services Work?
With most shipping services in the UK, you call to schedule a pickup time for your pallets. The company picks up and loads your shipment on schedule, then delivers and unloads your shipment to the destination you choose.
At UPakWeShip UK, we make shipping much more cost-effective for you as we provide you with a personalised shipping quote tailored to your specific needs. We can deliver empty moving crates or shipping containers to you that you can use to pack everything up.
Once you’re done, we pick up the packed containers or crates and deliver them promptly and safely to the location you choose.
2. Do You Have Insurance in Case Something Gets Damaged During Shipping?
The chances of your items getting damaged are slim; however, you can purchase our low-cost insurance plan to give you peace of mind. The insurance policy costs 2.5% of your item’s value.
Our insurance covers the loss of damaged or lost items if external forces were the cause, such as a truck accident, or a shipping container crane, forklift, or storm-related issue. It does not cover costs for items not packed correctly and is only available for curbside or door-to-door shipments.
3. Can You Help With Customs Paperwork and Other Documents?
We have over 33 years of experience with international shipments and can help ensure you have the documents required for shipping no matter where your destination is. We also have tools available online to help you create packing lists, shipping labels, and more. Speak to one of our knowledgeable shipping coordinators today to learn more.
4. Will I Be Able to Track My Shipment?
Of course. UPakWeShip UK will give you a booking number when your items ship that you can use to track your shipment. Just visit our tracking page and submit your booking numbers. It’s that simple.
5. What Sizes Are Your Crates?
Our U-CRATE services are a popular do-it-yourself (DIY) choice for moving overseas. These services include three different cubic feet sizes: 50, 100, and 200, along with a durable cover, making it easier to optimize your space and protect your goods.
6. Can I Ship My Own Pallet(s)?
Yes. We offer a simple and cost-effective shipping solution for small furniture items and moving boxes where you can provide your own standard 48 x 40-inch pallet(s). You load it, and we ship it to your new home location overseas. Prices vary depending on the size from up to 45 to 72 inches tall. Discounts are available for multiple pallets.
7. How Does Your Self-Load Shipping Container Program Work?
We bring you a 20 or 40-foot container on a trailer all ready for you to load. After you are done packing your shipping container, we take it to the port for customs entry and documentation, then load it on a ship that takes it overseas. Once your shipment reaches your specified destination, you unload your things.
8. How Can I Save Money Using Your Services?
UPakWeShip UK is the only international shipper that allows you to save money by packing, loading, and unloading your own things. Other companies will charge you a huge price for these packing, loading, and unloading services.
And, although you pack your own container, we are still there to guide you through the process so you will have a stress-free move. Another thing that makes us stand out from the rest is with us you only pay for what you need. There are no extras involved and no hidden fees.
9. Do You Offer Secure Payments Online?
We do. You can use our secure online payment portal to pay your deposit, pay for storage, pay your final shipping cost, or make any other payments.
