The CLIENT will deposit a “holding deposit” in dollars into our companies account in the amount of to hold container. This is a non-refundable deposit.The CLIENT will then deposit the outstanding amount as listed in the contract in order to release the shipping container. Then the client will be notified on the day of delivery before the shipping container is loaded upon the trailer.
Upon the confirmation of the deposit the trailer will begin it’s transport.The CLIENT will be responsible for the transportation costs, This money will be deposited in the proper account before the delivery day.

Our company guarantees the safe delivery of the clients shipping container.

Our drivers are not permitted to accept cashThe CLIENT must have either a crane or a backhoe with the proper chains to lift the shipping container off the trailer on the day of delivery. This crane/backhoe must be at the destination before the deliver.

The CLIENT will be charged for any additional time incurred by the driver for waiting on the removal and installation of the shipping container.

If for any reason the road is impassable due to any poor road conditions and/or sharp impassable turns, then the driver will need to unload the shipping container as close to it’s final destination as possible. Therefore our company and the driver are not legally bonded to an exact physical location. The owner will need to solicit a different temporarily location for the shipping container to be unloaded and then recovered by the CLIENT means.
International Transportation.

When transporting internationally the client will be responsible for claiming the unit and clearing it through your countries customs.
Also paying any fees, import taxes and any other local charges, i.e. storage fees,etc
The client will need to arrange the transportation and installation of the shipping container home to the property.
My suggestion is for the client to contact a custom agent to learn about the process, it is actually quite easy and fast. There is nothing inside the containers, i.e. materials,goods,etc. So there should not be any large fees applied to the shipping container home.
Then I would suggest to get some transportation quotes, perhaps from the custom agent or “Google” it.
With all of that information in your hands you should be able to make a decision on the overall value of importing one of our products verses buying and or locally making one.
