  4. 4. Advantages of The U Crate Obviously having all your items loaded in one crate is going to give them better protection from handling as well as security. The U Crates are also great for protecting items that will not fit in a box. It allows you to bring that coffee table or book case as well as all those boxes. It also gives great protection for any fragile items. The 150 Cube U Crate The 100 and 150 cubic foot U Crates are made of wood and you have to load them at one of our terminals as they are too large to be delivered and collected from your residence. In certain areas however we can bring a U Crate to your residence on a trailer or truck for you to load. Ask our customer service team if this is available where you live. 1 866 868 6386
  5. 5. Will It Fit? We suggest using a tape measure and masking tape to measure out the crate size on your floor and wall and see if you can load all your things into that space. Don’t forget there are support braces in the crate. The 100 cubic foot U Crate internal dims are 61x54x47 inches The 150 cubic foot U Crate internal dims are 85x62.5x47 inches
  6. 6. The U Crates are made in Charleston by our crate maker called Fedde (He’s from Holland) We keep stock in our terminal in Charleston and truck to our terminals across the USA once we receive your order. In house crate maker

Most of our rates are on our web site however if your origin or destination doesn’t come up as an option please email us at move@upakweship.com Don’t forget our rates are all inclusive from our terminal to your door. The 100 cube U Crate will be delivered with a tail lift truck to your curbside or driveway in Europe.

  8. 8. Can we take your order? To go ahead and make a booking with UPakWeShip, click on the book now button and complete our online booking form. Once we receive the booking we will start to email you all the paperwork and get you scheduled. We normally require at least a weeks notice to get you the U Crate. The U Crate is trucked to the terminal closest to you and we will confirm to you when it is there and ready for you to load.
  9. 9. Home Delivery If you want you can take the U Crate home to load. We have a forklift at all the terminals so we can load it and unload it from you when you return. Just bear in mind we need to get the forklift blades under the crate to lift it so if the pallet positions are blocked by your truck’s body lay 4x4’s under the crate before loading the crate so that we can get the forklift underneath it. Obviously do not leave the U Crate outside to get wet!
  10. 10. Report to the office and they will show you where to go to safely load the U Crate Start filling it up with boxes and furniture, heavy stuff at the bottom. Make it all snug and tight and fit together like a completed jigsaw puzzle. Make sure everything is in a box or wrapped in bubble wrap or movers blankets and taped up well. Every piece needs to be labelled and numbered. When estimating the capacity of the crate bear in mind the support bars in the corners of the crate. If you have some empty spaces stuff them with crushed up old paper or boxes so that your things can not move around in the crate.
  11. 11. Lock her up! When everything is loaded, nice and tight so that nothing can roll around in the crate, close the door and put on your padlocks (1 on a 100 and 2 on a 150 U Crate) You keep the keys. Some of the crates have extra screws you can screw in to the pre made holes to secure the door shut. Tell the warehouse supervisor you are all loaded and stick on the bill of lading label emailed to you for the trucking to our shipping terminal and your job is done
  12. 12. Leave the rest to UPakWeShip! After you have finished loading we will truck the crate to one of our main shipping terminals in New York, Charleston and Los Angeles. It will get loaded into a shipping container with lots of other peoples U Crates, U Pods, U Boxes and shared container shipments. It normally takes us a week or two to fill up a container and get it booked on a ship. You can always check our online tracking system to see if we have updated any shipping information on your crate.
  13. 13. All Aboard! The container is then loaded on the ship, we send the appropriate paperwork to USA customs, complete the manifest and bill of lading instructions and off she sails to foreign shores. You can always track the ship or container with this app Ships normally keep to a tight schedule but severe weather conditions, port congestions or strikes can sometimes cause delays.
  14. 14. Customs Clearance We then have to unload the container and clear the shipments with customs. Most small shipments heading to EC Countries are cleared through customs at our own terminal in England. There are then no further Customs procedures while transporting to EC delivery points. For shipments going to Australia as well as customs there is a quarantine inspection where they check for prohibited items like food products, untreated wood, animal products, dirt and insects. There is a similar random inspection policy in New Zealand
  15. 15. And now its ready for delivery Once its ready we will call you and arrange a date for the delivery. Some of the trucks can not carry the large wood crates so sometimes your items might be loaded direct onto the moving van and leaving the wood crate behind at the depot. The delivery crew will bring everything into your new home up to 2nd floor. To avoid any extra charges, your residence must be accessible for large moving trucks
  16. 16. Marks Quick Tips Make sure everything in the crate has one of our labels on it showing your name and booking number on it. Make sure everything in the crate is in a box, plastic tote, Rubbermaid box, suitcase or trunk or wrapped up well in bubble wrap and cardboard. A bike takes up less room and its easier to stack other things around it if you put it in a bike box. You can normally get these for free from a bike shop. It might mean taking off the pedals and front wheel though. Do not include any food, human or for pets in your shipment. Any alcohol or tobacco products will probably be charged duties and taxes and will end up costing more than if you bought them locally Do not ship any liquids in case they leak over other things in your shipment. Watch our other UPakWeShip Presentations at Upak TV to learn more on our services, “how to” series and previous customers moves.
  17. 17. Most Importantly Do not book with an unlicensed Mover, Freight Forwarder or Shipping Company. There are many rogues in this business who will take your shipment and hold it hostage for more money. If you use an FMC approved company you have protection through the Government’s Federal Maritime Commission. We have large financial bonds in place and strict licensing rules to keep us in check and for your consumer protection. With an unlicensed company you have no protection and the FMC will not be able to help you sort things out if things went bad.
