What to Look Out For in a Shipping Company

Although it can be tempting to choose the company with the cheapest quote, it may turn out
to be a false economy if they are not experienced, as you could
end up having to pay extra if
they have missed steps.

Find out whether the company you are considering has a good track record when it comes to shipping between your point of origin and your destination:

  • Do they know how to prepare the relevant paperwork correctly?
  • Can they get your cargo or vehicle cleared and off the port promptly?
  • Do they use the shortest routes to offer you value for money?

Case Study


Following the devastation brought to Thailand by the tsunami in 2004, Vic needed to have
his Unimog Camper shipped out of Thailand to New Zealand urgently.

What we did

Under such extraordinary circumstances, it
was crucial that we took immediate action to organise the shipping of Vic’s Camper as soon as possible so that he could focus on getting his family and himself to safety without
worrying about his vehicle.

We prepared all the necessary documentation and, as mail services were severely disrupted, gave it to our hand-picked Thai agents whom we briefed thoroughly about the procedure.

We collected Vic’s camper and put it on a Roll-On-Roll-Off vessel. We had arranged with the shipping line some extra space so that Vic could also ship some personal belongings at the same time.


FVic’s camper safely reached New Zealand 20 days after he and his family had themselves arrived. The vehicle was cleared 3 days later, including 1 day to clear the personal items.

Vic’s Testimonial

“Under pressure against severe adversity, McCullough delivered. My family and I are eternally grateful how they capably removed an enormous stress from our life.”
