Saving pounds – not ‘piling’ them on

Standard A-to-B movements of mobile construction plant isn’t our biggest market, but when the client needs someone with engineering knowledge to visit the shipper (next morning at 8am after receiving their call at 4pm) to ‘negotiate’ how far they are prepared to strip a 70 tonne piling rig for shipment, to save a considerable amount on transport across Europe they call on us. With a compromise reached involving overall dimensions versus working time required to strip and rebuild, we then “just” had to supervise loading/securing, and provide dunnage, of the removed parts into standard Euroliner trailers and on the way.
