Glass and Granite
Most hauliers shy away from the carriage of glass or granite, but at Profreight, we have turned freight fraught with difficulty into our speciality.
5 – 10 glass panes/granite surfaces are typically secured together, with rubber pads placed between each pane/surface to prevent rubbing/scratching
Items are then blanket-wrapped to offer additional protection during transit
The panes are secured to side rails in our specially-designed vehicles. Ratchet straps and other securing mechanisms which could mark or damage your property are strictly prohibited
All vehicles have a rubber floor, giving your goods a relatively soft but robust and flexible surface on which to sit during transit
Profreight vehicles meet both mainland and Channel Island specifications, so we can provide a true door-to-door service, with no trans-shipping of goods (minimising the risk of damage during transit)
We will not mix your glass or granite items with other types of general freight
We offer a two-man collection and delivery service, should you require some additional help with vehicle loading/unloading
Profreight can offer advice and guidance on how to claim back VAT on purchases via the Proof of Shipment Documentation
All domestic services are offered for both deliveries from the mainland to the Channel Islands, and vice versa (e.g. north and south bound). Service levels provided include next day delivery, specific day or economy delivery and weekend/evening/out of hours’ delivery. In short, we will collect and deliver your property as, when and where required to meet your exact needs.
