Tips to get the best Freight prices

There can be many elements of a shipment that can affect obtaining a freight quote. The cost of transport can make a difference to the competitivity of your goods. For this reason, we are sure that you want to get the best transport quote possible, so we have written this short guide.

Please provide full collection town or city and postal code or area code

Postcodes can help us pinpoint exact addresses. The Google Maps Tool may help.

Supplying us with the full delivery town or city and postal code or area code

Providing the delivery location helps us to quote accurately. Try the Google Maps Tool for hard to find places.

The weight of the shipment – preferably in kilograms

All vehicles have restrictions on the weight that they can legally carry. It is, therefore, an important safety factor to have an accurate tonnage for our vehicles.

The dimensions of the goods at the longest part (length x width x height)

In European countries, they favour the Euro pallet which has a base size of 120 x 80 centimetres.

In Britain, we utilise the more popular UK pallet that has a footprint of 120 x 100 in centimetres.

Whether the pallets will double stack

To avoid damage and to plan vehicle loading, please confirm whether your pallets will stack one on top of the other.

The time constraints for collection / delivery

We will tailor a quote depending on your needs. Generally, the longer we have to make delivery the cheaper the cost will be. This is because we can do what’s called groupage shipping with freight going to a similar area and this can reduce the haulage costs.

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.

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 :)
