Shipping Your Mack Truck Overseas
Transporting your Mack to another country isn’t as costly or tough as you may assume, at least not for the professionals. Of course, all countries have their own laws regarding the importation of motorized vehicles and heavy equipment. If these policies aren’t met, your Mack may not get permission to enter the country.
By hiring an experienced international transport company to deliver your Mack, you can feel safe knowing that your truck is in good hands. Some countries have stricter laws and higher tax rates than others. On top of the differentiation in laws, they have the ability to change at any given time. Fortunately, this is all stuff the professionals at the transport company will deal with. You’ll find that they are extremely helpful and capable of customizing your transport to meets your needs more specifically.
About Open Air Shipping
The process of shipping a Mack of any size overseas is one that doesn’t take too much effort when the right equipment is available. The truck is fastened to the top of a large flatbed ship where it will stay until it reaches the port nearest to its future home. During its travels over the water, it will be tended to by transport specialists. They’ll continue to look after the truck, assuring its security the entire time. Using the latest transport technology, they’ll do their best to avoid poor weather conditions and rough waters.
Open air transports may leave the truck susceptible to outside elements but its value will be covered under the shipping company’s insurance policy. If any damages appear after the delivery, the transport company will assess the situation then file a claim with their insurance company.
