      Shipping engine hoods: The cost

      When you ship an engine hood with Cargoboard, the cost is highly dependent on several factors. For example:

      • the respective pick-up and delivery locations
      • the selected shipping method
      • the total weight or length and size

      You can see your individual price after entering the shipment data on our platform.

      What is the best way to prepare and pack the engine hood for shipment?

      Since engine hoods are sensitive goods for transportation, you should pay attention to a few points when shipping:

      1. Cleaning: Make sure that the hood is thoroughly cleaned to remove dirt, dust and lubricants. This not only helps keep the hood in good condition, but also prevents dirt particles from damaging the surface during transport.
      2. Protective covers: Use suitable protective covers to protect delicate surfaces or ornaments on the hood when shipping. These can be, for example, special foam or plastic covers that are applied to the relevant areas of the hood.
      3. Padding: Wrap the hood in several layers of protective material, such as bubble wrap or foam. Be sure to add extra padding to sensitive areas such as corners or edges to minimize any impact damage.
      4. Cardboard box: The engine hood should now be stably packed with a cardboard box and thus made ready for transport with the delivery note.

      Insure engine hood for transport

      Note that there is no standard insurance when shipping. In case of damage or loss, only the liability according to the German Freight Forwarders' Standard Terms and Conditions (ADSP) applies.


      Therefore, if you are shipping expensive products such as a hood, we recommend our shipping insurance. You can simply add these during the booking process.
