Cheap Freight Shipping

Is cheap freight good business?

Like most things in life, anyone can do things “cheap”. When it comes to cheap freight forwarding, as a company we decided in our early business plan that we didn’t want to be “cheap”.

Cheapest Cargo: What Barrington Freight can offer

Our services include road freight shipping, air freight shipping and sea freight shipping and all three modes of transport have a basic cost element. If something seems too good to be true in life, it often is. Many other freight forwarders may omit small “add on” charges like fuel surcharge, security fees, VAT and other charges that might make them look initially cheap but it will bump their quote up afterwards. At Barrington we always quote including ALL charges, we dislike surprises as much as you do!

So, “CHEAP”, what’s in a word?

To many, the word “cheap” means relatively low in cost or good value.

The word CHEAP can also mean –

  • Achieved with little effort: a cheap victory; cheap laughs.
  • Of considered of small value: in wartime, when life was cheap.
  • Of poor quality; inferior: a cheap toy, cheap and nasty
  • Worthy of no respect; vulgar or contemptible: a cheap gangster.
  • Stingy; miserly.
  • Worth relatively little: promises are cheap
  • Ashamed; embarrassed: to feel cheap
  • Tasteless; flashy; garish.
  • Inferior, poor, worthless, second-rate, shoddy, tawdry, tatty, trashy, substandard, low-rent.

By definition, it seems that there are more BAD examples of CHEAP than GOOD.

Our promise to you is that we will give you value for money. We are not CHEAP, we want to be the BEST.

The team at Barrington where incredible at delivering our goods on-time despite the new Brexit regulations on goods being imported. We even didn't pay tax on the returning shipment coming back to German.

Brilliant service. Extremely helpful, and they supported us all the way through the process of transporting goods to mainland Europe, which for anyone who hasn't done that before can seem quite daunting. Would definitely recommend using this company.

Excellent company, very efficient and great communication. Competitive , quick quotes!
We are very satisfied, we would like to thank the team for this with an awesome rating! They handled the delivery of a very sensitive, valuable, gigantic pallet for us at a fair price and without any problems. I mean, out of 4 companies, only they were able to undertake it. Nothing is damaged! We recommend the company to everyone :)

Fantastic service from Barrington Freight. It was our first time exporting goods from the UK and it was very reassuring to have them manage the shipment. The process was made easy and hassle free and Simon was always quick to respond to any queries. I would highly recommend.
