      The collection of the machine

      For the transport of the machine, our forwarding agents usually take it from the curb.

      For this takeover, it is imperative that shipments weighing 30 kg or more are either self-supporting or placed on a pallet for transport.

      The delivery of the machine

      Like the pickup, the delivery of the machine is free curbside. For this purpose, our forwarding agents unload the shipment at the delivery address and obtain the signature for acceptance.

      Technical documentation - What information on transporting a machine can I find in the operating instructions?

      For efficient machine relocation, precise information is required in the operating instructions for you and the freight forwarder who is to carry out the machine transport.

      You should therefore find the following information in the technical documentation or, as a machine manufacturer, provide it there for your customers:

      1. Weight and dimensions of the machine: Weight and dimensions are essential data for safe machine transport. Because these also provide the basis for being able to decide on the type of transport. If the machine exceeds a certain weight, for example, special heavy transport is required for safety reasons.
      2. Requirements for transport equipment: In addition, you should find clear requirements regarding transport equipment in the operating instructions. This includes, for example, instructions on the use of straps, support devices, heavy-duty pulleys and other equipment.
      3. Disassembly and reassembly instructions: The transport of machines often requires the disassembly of various machine parts. Be sure to follow instructions for disassembling and reassembling the machine from the operating manual to avoid damage.
      4. Recommended transport methods: Depending on the type of machine and transport, appropriate transport methods are often recommended in the operating instructions. Please pay attention to them before you plan the machine transport with a forwarding company.
