With exception of the small handling fee shown , the freight pricing above INCLUDES GST
Usually we provide one free of charge for your use which is being repositioned interstate by its owner; if one is not available then we can hire you one; around $200 is the hire charge; but usually we find you a free use one.
Within metro areas (please enquire with us about your suburbs being metro area)…..and providing delivery is a standard type, CONTAINER CARTAGE IS INCLUDED AT BOTH ENDS, using whichever vehicle type suits the purpose and location (either tilt-tray or side-loader vehicle).
Container placement is subject to check of suitability of site at origin & destination.
(In some cases Shire approval may need to be sought)
Usually the container is in play for around 30 days
before daily hire charges apply for demurrage.
If client requires storage at origin or destination (if container does not move directly to or from rail lodgement, then additional container cartage costs and possible storage costs may apply) .
Usually (if by RAIL) around 4 to 5 days rail port to rail port, varies by destination . Transit time by SEA can vary , around 10 to 14 days….or we can customise transit time to client’s requirement, subject to possible variance in costs …
Usually Definition of Metro area is within 30 km from rail depot ; any location beyond that distance will be subject to further case specific quotation and likely adjustment of pricing…… Cartage pricing already built into our quotes only covers within 30 km of rail depot in each city of origin and city of destination ……On application we can price outer metro or country areas, again with variance in pricing likely to be re-quoted on ad-hoc basis.
Where possible our service is to place a container on the ground at a clients residence or similar place of loading/unloading and leaving the container with client for a few days to both load and unload. Some address locations are not suitable for placement of a container (due to access issues, busy roads, low hanging wires and the like…) ; Should clients not be able to receive a container delivery we generally will work with the client to find an alternative suitable site nearby for container placement if needed. Depending on circumstances additional charges may apply , but pricing is on a case by case basis….
In some States such as WA quarantine clearance will be required ; usually this is automatically cleared if goods are not of particular concern to quarantine ; however, if quarantine wish to inspect a clients container contents, then additional quarantine inspection charges and resulting haulage charges , may apply.
Our website quoted pricing is based on immediate haulage either to or from the port or rail operator yard from the place of loading/unloading by client at both origin and destination; if a client requires movement of the container/s to an interim storage yard (such as if immediate despatch or immediate delivery of the container is not possible due to client’s circumstance) additional handling , haulage and storage charges may apply on a case by case basis. We are happy to quote if you need deferred arrival arrangements, but pricing will vary case by case.
Note: Pricing to Perth
Container prices TO PERTH ,from Brisbane/Melbourne/Sydney are currently quoted as SEAFREIGHT , not as RAIL ; this is to offer clients the cheapest possible pricing albeit a slightly slower service . Rail prices are available on these routes Price on Application ….
Note: Containers to Far North Queensland
Quoted pricing for containers to North Queensland destinations (not Brisbane) may attract additional repositioning charges not yet indicated in the quoted price ; this depends on whether container equipment is or is not owned by client; if hire containers need repositioning back down from North Queensland additional fees may apply ; please enquire if sending to North Queensland so we may quote you on your personal freight circumstance requirements.
