Then a final price will be calculated by our sales department after liaising with our trusted couriers and will be sent straight to you on the email. Upon receiving the final price, our freight department will organize the shipping together with the logistics service provider, should you decide to accept the offer.

Filling out the offer form

The offer form is split into three sections:

Of the Cargo you’ll need the exact dimensions of the shipment including the pallet – these are length, width, and height in cm.
You’ll also need the shipment’s weight in kg, this is the gross weight, not the net weight.
You’ll need to describe its contents and give its value.

Pick Up you’ll need an accurate pick-up address with the correct post code, a name of the person in charge of handing over the package to the courier and their local phone number.

Delivery you’ll need an accurate delivery address again with the relevant post code, and the name of the person receiving the shipment with their local phone number.

Preparing the cargo

To qualify for freight transport in Europe, the pallet must be properly chosen, packaged and secured.

Stack in clean and equal columns -Stacking the packages in this way will ensure maximum stability.

Leave no gaps packing tightly will keep the pallet strong enough to sustain the jolts, shocks and irregular movements it’ll experience on its journey.

No protruding packages - packages that exceed the dimensions of the pallet make it unroadworthy. The packages should lie flat without exceeding the length of the pallet.

Avoid being too heavy - Heavy packages should be left for the bottom. Lighter packages belong on top.

Wrap it up - Using stretch-wrapping will minimize the risk of damage to the packages on the pallet.

Labelling the cargo

For all cargo transport in Europe through Eurosender, the courier in charge of transportation will bring the appropriate labels or they will collect your shipment and label it in the terminal. Therefore, there is no need to print your own, unless instructed by Eurosender or the logistics service provider. Still, it’s important to:

Remove old labels - Any old labels should be removed from the pallet as not to confuse its delivery.

Ensure they’re readable - After wrapping and strapping the pallet, make sure the shipment has a flat surface where the label can be affixed.

We also recommend that you pack a copy of the order confirmation with all of the relevant details on top of your pallet, thus making the locating and delivering of the pallet much easier in the unlikely event of damage or loss of label.

Confirming the order

Upon submission of the offer form, you will receive an email asking to confirm the order and make the payment through any of our payment methods (credit card, PayPal or bank transfer). You have until 10 a.m. on the day before the pickup to make the payment, the date of the pickup can, of course, be agreed with the freight department.

Pick Up

Under the conditions of freight shipping in Europe through Eurosender, it is required that a forklift or equivalent mode of transport be made available by the customer/company using the courier services organised by Eurosender. This is to ensure the handover of the pallet runs like clockwork. If this can’t be done, you should contact Eurosender or the courier company directly before the courier arrives at the address.

You should also ensure that access to the pick-up and delivery address is made easy for the courier and be aware that assistance loading and unloading may be required.

Storing your cargo

If you’re on the move and require some storage space for your items before their delivery, then this is possible too.

Perhaps you’re relocating and need to store half of the things in your house while the logistical details for your new move materialise. In this case, your shipment will be picked up and stored in the logistics company’s facilities for as long as is needed before being delivered to a new address on a date of your choosing.

The storage service can be organised by us in partnership with our trusted logistics companies and their boast of modern warehouses and excellent storage conditions. The service is bookable through sales@eurosender.com, just tell us when you need the cargo picked up, for how long the storage services are required and on which date the shipment needs to be delivered. We will tell you how much it is to send and store your pallet.

Everything will be arranged and a price calculated depending on the weight (kg) and dimensions (cm) of your shipment, and the number of days for which the storage services will be required.

Insurance

Heavy cargo is already automatically insured according to the CMR Convention and additional insurance can be purchased up to 5,000 EUR at a generated price which can be purchased in the second part of the order process.

For the insurance of freight transport greater than 200 EUR, a request can be made by writing in the comments section on the Request Individual Offer form or by contacting sales@eurosender.com.

For shipment of high value, we strongly recommend the purchase of additional insurance.
