Here are some answers to questions our customers have asked us.

Can you ship internationally?
You bet. We can ship any machine any where in the world. We can load machines in a container, on a flat rack or RO-RO for shipping world-wide. Our shipping department has shipped several hundred machines in containers around the world.  As well, our staff knows what needs to be done to ensure that customs and documentation does not slow down your shipment.

Shipping With Flatrack

What about your North American shipping services?
We have carriers and freight companies that provide the most competitive rates to our customers. We also have a full time employee that does nothing but work on freight. He works hard to protect our customers - and us - from hidden and excessive shipping expenses. As well, with knowledge of customs rules, we can guarantee that buying from us is like buying a machine down the street, it is simply hassle free.

Shipping With Lowbed

What shipping carriers do you work with?
We work with only fully insured and bonded carriers. In the rare case where carriers do not deliver on promises, or mislead us about shipping times, that carrier is blacklisted and not used again. The point is we only work with reliable trustworthy carriers.

What are typical delivery time expectations within North America?
Depending on the size of the machine, we can generally get something shipped anywhere in North America within 5-7 days of a machine purchase.

What are typical delivery time expectations internationally?
We'll work closely with our international shipping partners to find the best possible solutions for shipping, getting it to you as quickly and safely as possible.  Timing is tough to nail down as it is dependant on shipping schedules but we work to keep you informed and confident from the time it leaves the yard.
