Choosing a Company for Shipping to Australia

There are umpteen companies which will claim that they specialize in shipping goods. However, if you want to shift to a particular location its always better to go for a company which has successfully facilitated the moving process to the same location.

Ask for references and proof of relevant experience A logistics company which has been in business for more than 30 years is a safer bet than an entrepreneurial setup which is merely a couple of years old. This is particularly relevant in the logistics business which requires strong contacts, capabilities, man power and know ledge.

Always ask for papers

Remember everything worth writing down should actually be written down. Never underestimate the importance of paperwork even if you are dealing with a shipping company you were associated with in the past.

In case anything gets wrong you must be able to show valid documents. The insurance papers should be duly inspected by you and you should double check the categorical list of items which includes Womens clothing. Ask for written quotes and scrutinize them closely for detecting hidden costs.

Quality of fleet

Check out the quality of transport vehicles employed by the shipping company. Transport does not only refer to the fleet here but also to trucks, lorries and heavy carrier vehicles employed by the company.

Don’t rely on hearsay (unless you have solid references) and on website information alone (most of it is exaggerated). Try to find out the strengths of the shipping company by paying them a surprise visit.
