Q.How can I get the details of the machinery and more photos?
A.For more machinery details and photos of the required machinery please contact us.
Q.Can machinery be shipped Roll-On Roll-Off?
A.Yes. It normally can. However, there are restrictions:
1. Height & Size: The deck for non-standard cargo such as large trucks and machinery often has a different height than standard vehicles. The Roll-On Roll-Off shipping companies will only allow machinery on their carriers up to a certain height. This can vary from vessel to vessel and voyage to voyage.
2. Mobility: The machine needs to be driveable and steerable so it can be driven onto and off the vehicle carrier under its own power.
3. Tracks: Some tracked machinery has rubber trucks and some has steel tracks. Roll-On Roll-Off shipping companies will usually only allow rubber tracked machinery on their vehicle carriers.
4. Voyage Availability: Because there may only be a single deck for non-standard vehicles capacity may be limited for particular voyages. Our freight forwarder can check on availability and restrictions when they get the current sea freight rate for the machine that you're interested in importing.
Q.Can forklifts be shipped Roll-On Roll-Off?
A.Diesel, Gasoline and LPG forklifts can normally be shipped by RO-RO. They need to be driveable and steerable so they can be driven onto and off the vehicle carrier under their own power. However, electric forklifts might be refused RO-RO shipping because of the common occurrence of battery depletion to the point where the unit becomes immobile.
Since the cost of RO-RO shipping is determined by volume calculated on the length (L), width (W) and height (H) of the unit at the maximum point, forks are usually removed and attached to the body of the forklift to reduce the cost of sea freight. This is typically done by straps or spot welds or a combination of both. While there is usually a charge for this work it is usually substantially less than the cost of the sea freight charge that otherwise would have been payable.
Q.Can tractors and combine harvesters be shipped Roll-On Roll-Off?
A.Yes. They normally can. They need to be driveable and steerable so they can be driven onto and off the vehicle carrier under their own power.
Q.How is Roll-On Roll-Off shipping cost calculated?
A.For large vehicles such as large trucks and machinery the shipping company will sometimes calculate costs based on both M3 and vehicle weight, known as RT (Revenue Ton) and bill on the basis of whichever cost is higher. For example, if a 20 tonne vehicle was shipped at a rate of $100 per tonne this would give a sea freight cost of $2,000.
Q.Will the machine be steam washed before shipping?
A.Basically, the machines are steam washed before shipment. If you concerned with especially good steam wash, please let us know so that we can follow the instructions.
Q.How many forklifts will fit in one shipping container?
A.How many forklifts will fit depends on the size and weight of the units being shipped. Up to 5 or 6 small forklifts of up to 1 tonne lifting capacity can be loaded sideways in a 20 foot container. Larger units which exceed 2300mm in length from container mast to the rear of the unit need to be loaded lengthwise or diagonally to maximise space. Between 2 and 4 units can usually be loaded this way.
The best load factors are obtained when there are several forklifts to select from and each shipment is based on matching the size of the units for the best fit and maximum number of units in the container.
The payload weight limit of 26,580 kgs. will sometimes preclude a 40 foot container full of forklifts only. We have a Forklift Container Loading Calculator which can assist you in staying under the weight limit.
If you're approaching the allowable weight limit you can buy smaller forklifts or include other kinds of stock to stay within the limit. There is usually space for shipping other stock such as wheels, tyres and parts in forklift containers. Forklifts with a mast height over 2280mm (standard container) or 2340mm (high cube container) will need to have the mast removed prior to containerisation. The mast's can usually be shipped in the same container.
Q.How many small to medium sized excavators will fit in a container?
A.How many small to medium sized excavators will fit depends on the size and weight of the units being shipped. Between 2 and 6 is typical for a 20 foot container. Between 4 and 12 is typical for a 40 foot container. Matching the width of units so they can be loaded side by side in the container will increase the number that can be shipped.
Shipping in a 40 foot High Cube container can increase the number of units being shipped since the arms can be raised higher, reducing the space taken in the container. There is often space for shipping parts, such as excavator tracks and seats in the spaces between the excavators. Excavators can also be shipped on Roll-On Roll-Off carriers.
Q.How many tractors will fit in one shipping container?
A.How many tractors that will fit depends on the size of the units being shipped. Between 6 and 8 is typical for a 20 foot container. Between 12 and 20 is typical for a high cube 40 foot container. Tractors are usually partially dismantled and shipped with a rotary cultivator.
Q.How many hand tractors, tillers or cultivators will fit in one shipping container?
A.How many hand tractors, tillers or cultivators will fit depends on the size of the units being shipped. If loaded without dismantling between 10 and 12 is typical for a 20 foot container in a single tier. If a platform is used to create a second tier then between 20 and 24 is typical for a 20 foot container.
Q.How many rice planters will fit in one shipping container?
A.How many rice planters that will fit depends on the size of the units being shipped. Between 2 and 3 is typical for a 20 foot container. Between 4 and 6 is typical for a 40 foot container. There will usually be space to ship small items in the same container, depending on the actual dimensions of the rice planters.
Q.How many combine harvesters will fit in one shipping container?
A.How many combines that will fit depends on the size of the units being shipped. Between 1 and 2 is typical for a 20 foot container. Between 4 and 6 is typical for a high cube 40 foot container. There will usually be space to ship other items in the same container, depending on the actual dimensions of the combines.
Q.How many large generators or air compressors will fit in one shipping container?
A.This varies with the size and shape of the units, but typically:
20 Foot Container: Up to around 24 depending on the size of the units.
40 Foot Container: Up to around 48 depending on the size of the units.
Q.Can I have a machine inspection report?
A.We can inform of machine condition report which had been done when the machine arrived in our yard.
Please note that this is not to guarantee the machine condition stated or non-stated in the report. We recommend you to inspect and check the machine by yourself.
