No.1 Cost Calculations
1) Air transportation is calculated according to weight (KG)
2) Sea transportation calculated according to volume (CBM). CBM is calculated as Length × width × height.
If the shipment is large it may need to be shipped in a sea container. If that is the case, the cost will be calculated on the basis of the size of the container. Of course, a 20GP container's max is 28 CBM, a 40GP container's max is 58 CBM, a 40HQ container's max is 68 CBM
No.2 About Insurance
Because there are so many links in the chain of an international move, loss and damage will sometimes occur. We therefore strongly recommend clients to insure important goods and property. As a service to our clients Fred Mover cooperates with the American Insurance Company named ITI for all insurance business.
Insurance expense: The insurance premium is calculated at between 2% to 3% of the total value of the goods insured. We will be happy to assist you with any special requests or requirements you may have. However, it's up to our clients' will to decide buying it or not. There're indeed some clients they said i don't want to buy any insurance or i bought insurance from some other insurance company, it's also ok for us. Generally speaking, based on our experience, LCL 1-15 CBM client usually bought 50,000.00 RMB insurance; FCL 28-58 CBM usually bought 10,0000.00 RMB for your reference.
