The Best Options and Methods for Shipping Kenworth Trucks
It’s a huge responsibility to safely deliver a Kenworth truck to a new location. Securing it properly to the right hauler is essential in the success of its delivery. This is all stuff that the transport professionals are trained to do. In most cases, you can assume that an open air method is the most reliable type of transport for your oversized truck. This is also the least expensive shipping method.
If you’re an individual or small company shipping the truck, you have options such as door to door delivery or high priority transport services. These add convenience to the entire shipping process. When you choose door to door delivery, you can expect the transport company to pick up and drop off the large vehicle at the locations specified. High priority services include faster delivery or guaranteed shipping dates.
For international deliveries, you need to hire a transport company with overseas shipping experience. The process of shipping your Kenworth overseas is much different than a state to state delivery. It requires the owner of the Kenworth to provide specific documentation to Customs. It also must meet the requirements of the nation it is delivered to. Import laws are often changing and every country has their own set of requirements. The tax rates of every country are also different. The best way to avoid this confusion is by letting a professional shipping company deal with it. A transporter will have the experience and knowledge necessary to make international shipping easier on everyone.
When you use international shipping services, your Kenworth is secured to the top of a flatbed ship. As it crosses the ocean, professionals will look after it, making sure it is protected and secured at all times. A reputable transport company will even insure the value of the truck under its own insurance policy from the moment they pick it up, until the moment it is delivered.
