Shippers should allow a 2-week period before the ship date to find a good conatiner.
We can set up an appointment for you to visit the container yard at the port so
you can see what you are actually purchasing, or you can talk with representatives
at the container yard and they will pick one out for you.
- Before it is pulled off the lot, it will be inspected and the container number will taken off the computer system.
If used for overseas shipping it must be certified as seaworthy with appropriate plaque.
When it is delivered to your door, you will be responsible for painting over
the container number.
To make the arrangements to buy and ship a container,
we require a $ 750.00 deposit (or simply prepaid in full*)
for the purchase of the container and
$ 750.00 deposit for shipping (the total of $ 1,500.00 deposit).
- Receipt of your deposit/payment allows us to open your export file
and make preliminary preparations, including:
arrange a booking with the SS line,
line up the trucker and chassis rental,
and have the designated equipment manager
locate currently available container(s)
in their CY container yard and assign
(on average) three containers from which the buyer can choose.
The full price of the container needs to be prepaid*
since equipment is not released before payment
has been wired and/or checks have cleared the bank.
Our contract needs to be downloaded, filled out, returned with payment.
The contract can be found at:
