If you wish us to ship the
goods we will engage a cargo forwarder we are familiar with and has
already shipped many of our units. This cargo forwarder knows how we
want to have your precious goods packed and stuffed. However, if you
wish to engage a cargo forwarder by yourself feel free to search the
internet with the key phrase "Bali cargo forwarders". You will find
a list of over 100 companies. Take your pick (*).
Unfortunately we have had very
bad experiences with 2 Balinese cargo forwarders (price fixing,
broken goods, no compliance to timely delivery, rejected containers
by customs at the port of destination, etc,). You may
e-mail us for more information
on this aspect.
(*) Most, if not all, Balinese
wooden house manufacturers will add an arbitrary commission fee to the shipping
costs if you engage them in the arrangement of your shipment.
However, so unfortunate, these companies too often only act as a
"post box" and have no further interest in how the cargo forwarder
packs and ships. It's all about the fees which may range between 10%
If you would like to involve our company and have us arranged your
shipment we will coordinate and actually supervise the packing and stuffing
of the container. The cargo forwarder will have to sign a document
showing proof and evidence that all items were collected and
properly packed following our instructions and protocol. A copy of
this document will be e-mailed to the client. We will also monitor
the stuffing of the container so that parts first needed are stuffed
at the back of the container. To cover our costs we will add a percentage of 10% of the estimated
cost for the ocean freight (hence not over the total of the shipping cost).
