We decided to ship our belongings with **********. (Please PM member for company name)
Cutting a very long story short, I really regret every choosing them as a shipping company and I wouldn't recommend to anyone ever!!
We booked them to arrive on the Friday to pack up our household belongings, they arrived a day early and then said they couldn't come back on the Friday. They did come back after several phone calls and emails!! We had filled in all the forms confirming that we fly out on the 14th April and that we want our belongings to be delivered after 18th May, as we are in a furnished rental for 4 weeks so won't need our belongings before then. However, after ringing them today to find out if we could add an item to our belongings (which are mean't to be in storage) we are told that they have been loaded into container and it is ready to be shipped, and was then told that our belongings are expected to arrive on the 9th April.........we don't even fly out until 14th.!!
So after my rant, my question is :
Does anyone know what the costs are to have your shipment sat on the dockside of customs for any length of time, as we cannot collect our belongings until May as we don't have a rental to go to until after 18th May.
I will be arguing with ******** about any charges, but just want to get an idea of what it is going to cost so I know what I will be up against.
Any advice would be greatly received.
