Proper Engine PackagingPackage your engine properly by crating it and securing it to a standard pallet. If scratches and dents are a concern, your freight should be enclosed and uncrushable.
Triple CheckWhen your freight arrives, make sure you immediately check for any damage that occurred during transportation. Over the road transportation can be rough on improperly packaged goods.
Use Freight TerminalsTake your crated or palletized engine directly to the carrier terminal to save on the first and last leg of travel. Use terminal to terminal services to save on accessorial charges and extra fees.
Be AccurateGive the most accurate weight possible when quoting (total shipping weight must include packaging).
Shipping PrepDrain all liquids – including water – before shipping to avoid delay, damage, and additional charges.
By consolidating your engine shipment with other shippers' freight, you to effectively "share the cost" of a full truckload. Because of this, shipping your engine via LTL freight could cost as low as $100+, depending on weight, distance, and other factors.read more
