Does groupage freight take a long time?
Barrington ship daily trucks to our depots in Europe which provides you with speedy delivery at cost effective prices.
We don't have a fork lift truck or access for a large truck - can you help us?
Many of our smaller vehicles have tail lifts for lowering goods to the ground or raising goods on to the truck - both in Britain and in Europe.
As long as we are pre-advised, we can plan collections and deliveries on smaller transit type van or 7.5 tonne trucks where access may be a problem.
Will my shipment get damaged if it travelling loads of other groupage?
We are very proud of our low insurance claims record and happy, regular customers are what we strive for. Many of our international vehicles are "double decked" meaning that most pallets are not double stacked.
Can I track my shipment when it ships as groupage ?
Yes, each consignment can be tracked via our operations centre. At any point you can advise your client as to the location of the shipment. We can provide details of our delivery agents so that the delivery party
can also liaise directly with them too.

Shipper and recipient both happy with the service. Quick delivery and no issues. Recipient requested a call an hour pre delivery and this was carried out which was very helpful. Not the cheapest freight but the service was 10/10.
Barrington was an excellent choice for international freight transport. Our goods were extremely fragile electronics for an art installation, and our agent, Matt Everard, took all measures to ensure a perfect transaction from all angles. We'll definitely use Barrington in the future based on this experience, and have recommended your services to our network.
