      Need help arranging for your overseas shipment?   Where to start?
      Sefco customers are provided with very practical advice and guidance concerning their overseas shipment. If you are not yet a Sefco customer (past/current) and need specialized support/advice, please complete our online form.

    There is one form (A, Request for Quotation) to be used for obtaining a rate quote (for shipping commercial cargo / or personal property).

    Next - to proceed with any follow-up support, guidance and servicing of a new account...

    There is (B, the Shippers Letter of Instructions) express booking/SLI new account registration form.

    We will require certain information, before services and support can be provided (beyond 1-rate quote). "Unknown" shippers with no prior bookings/business with Sefco will be expected to provide as much detail as possible (on our form). All first time customers/US exporters have to be checked against a US Treasury database of denied persons for security purposes.
    Our express booking form will be used to set up your profile as a new/future account. Upon receipt of initial payment, a formal booking is submitted to the carrier, export docs are processed, and formal instructions sent to the client/shipper. The account is actively serviced from that point on, including online tracking report/links and updates as may be available.

Subject: MEVAS inspection schedule on Twitter

Dear Customer,

To keep you posted with our inspection schedule we intend to advertise more often our inspection trips on Twitter. If you decide to follow up our channel you would be informed about our trips. This way you could save some money for inspections. If we are traveling to an area anyway your inspection could be added for a nice price. Next Monday i.e. we are traveling to Holland and could add machine inspections to our trip.

If you are interested in stories about heavy equipment inspections or other related stories from the world of used machinery we invite you to follow our blog.

With best regards
