What is the Best Cargo Service in the UK?
Well, we are biased, but the best cargo service in the UK is definitely Euro Pak Cargo Services!
On a serious note though, we thought it would be helpful to give you a list of things to look for when finding a company to send your cargo to Pakistan.
1. Customer Service:
This is important. The items you are sending back to your loved ones are precious and its crucial that the people who help you send it are knowledgeable and friendly.
Before you decide to use a pak cargo company, find out if their team are available by phone and email.
Ask them what kind of support they can offer and how much experience they have with packing and shipping items.
Test them out by asking lots of questions, they should be patient and helpful - if they aren't you should really consider if you want them to send your parcels to Pakistan, as it can take weeks and you will need to communicate with them regularly.
2. Do they help with packing?
Whether you're sending small items like shampoo and cosmetics to Pakistan, or sending large items like sofas and TVs, you want to make sure you are packing your items correctly and following any recommended guidelines.
You also want peace of mind that your items are as protected and safe as possible so that the chances of getting lost or damaged is as small as possible.
A good pak cargo company will help ensure your items are packed well and will check your parcels on collection. They should be able to give you free advice on the best way to pack your items and in what kind of bag or box.
3. Where do they store your items before shipping out?
Any good company who is going to look after your items before sending them out to Pakistan should have a secure facility or warehouse to keep them in.
All good cargo companies invest in security and a location that is suitable for looking after parcels. Check that this is the case with any company you are thinking about using.
4. Do they have custom packing options for your items?
If you are sending large, valuable items like TVs, a Chandelier or other delicate items, a good cargo company will add extra packaging to ensure the item is well protected. For example, we create custom wooden crates to transport your items safely.
5. Do they offer Tracking?
After shipping out your items, you will want some way to keep track of your parcels. Make sure the cargo company you use offer a full tracking service.
6. Do they offer a full door-to-door service?
Here at Pak Cargo Services, we offer a true, door-to-door service.
When you book your collection, we give you a reliable time slot in which we come to collect your items and we send your parcels direct to the destination.
7. Is the company registered on Companies House?
When speaking to a Cargo company you want peace of mind that your items will be protected and that the people running it are genuine. It's worth checking that they are set up as a proper company and doing everything correctly.
8. Is the company registered for VAT?
Again, this is for peace of mind and checking that the company is keeping records and doing everything legally. Make sure you ask the company if they are VAT registered.
9. How long has the company been trading?
Experience and knowledge are important when dealing with anyone especially if you are going to be paying for their services. The longer a company has been around, the more likely they are to be trustworthy and reliable.
Always ask about the company's background and the team involved.
