Simple Tips

Simple Tips to Stress-Free Cargo and Storage Shipping:

  • Make sure the fuel tank is no more than a quarter full (or the vehicle can’t be shipped).
  • Disconnect the battery.
  • Drain fluids, for example hydraulic lines.
  • Take apart removable sections and pack up the vehicle in units as small as possible.
  • Give your machinery a good clean, inside and outside, particularly the wheels, tracks and arches, to ensure smooth MAF clearing as they will be checking for dirt, mud and plant material.
  • Consider marine insurance. We can arrange comprehensive policies covering your machinery from the point of origin to delivery at its final destination. We recommend that you take close-up photos of every side of your machinery as they would be required should you need to make an insurance claim.
  • Request, as we do, prompt discharge and clearance through MAF and Customs so that your machinery can be on its way as soon as possible.

“I called McCullough Ltd when my old agent failed to unpack up my Drain Truck from the wharf. I had only 7 days to get my truck onto a job in Tauranga. McCullough promised to make the deadline date and they delivered on their word. Not only did McCullough make the deadline but they were less expensive and thoroughly more competent than my previous agent. I urge anyone looking for a new customs agent to call McCullough, particularly if you want to have your machinery delivered without a scratch and on time.”
