Loose & Fragile Freight
For those items which do not easily fit into any of our other domestic categories, we offer our truly bespoke loose and fragile freight service portfolio.
Regardless of the nature of the item(s) you wish to ship, we will discuss and scope your particular requirements before presenting what our experience would suggest is your best transport option.
However, whilst your goods may be unique and the transportation requirements tailored, our key service characteristics remain consistent:
Your item(s) are blanket-wrapped upon collection to offer additional protection
They are then 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 fragile 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
Our specialist demountable vehicles can be hydraulically lowered to the ground, so that your fragile item(s) can simply be walked out of the truck and into their new home without the need for lifting equipment, avoiding all associated unloading risks
We can offer additional insurance to give you total peace of mind that, should the very worst happen, your position is protected
We can provide experienced porters to help you pack and wrap your item, and unwrap it/take away all wrapping materials at its destination.
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.
