Memorandum to all customers dealing in Auto/Marine Spares: Movement of Engines, Gearboxes, Driveshaft’s and other similar components having contained oil, fluids and fuel.
Whilst our Pallet services offer the valuable facility of being able to move used vehicle components, increasing issues with items not being fully drained of oils and fluids are occurring.
If these components are not drained fully the fluids can leak causing damage to vehicles, sortation equipment and other clients goods. There are also environmental issues to consider. If damage is caused to other clients consignments or if a clean-up operation is required the costs must be recovered from the account holder.
Please can you ensure that in respect of the UK and European road transit services, all fluids are drained thoroughly, if possible use a flush. Then the items should be sufficiently plugged or wrapped in a watertight plastic bag before being strapped to the pallet.
Any Worldwide or European services where air transit is used to move these components require a decontamination certificate or declaration signed by a professional cleaning company or mechanic. Decontamination involves flushing the components to remove all traces of oil/fuel and a steam clean or similar to ensure the engine is clean outside.
Thank you for your understanding and if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.
UPS Collection Cut-offs for UK Deliveries
- 06 Jul 2012
UPS have requested all collections requests for UK deliveries are made by 12 noon. This means we'll need to receive your bookings by 11:45am at the latest to ensure we can schedule you a same day collection. If you are sending outside the UK to European or Worldwide destinations then the later collection slots apply. If you are sending an international parcel on the same day as a UK parcel you can benefit from the later collection cut-off.
The collection postcodes in the UK that have early cut-off restrictions already will remain the same. If you'd like to check if your postcode has an early cut-off please use our contact page to request a postcode check.
United Kingdom Customs Strike 10 May.
- 09 May 2012
United Kingdom Customs will be on strike next Thursday 10 May 2012 for 24 hours.
The strike is likely to be widely observed by all Customs unions (officers and management) and relates to a pension age dispute.
The impact will be limited to packages selected by Customs for import or export inspection or document check on Wednesday 9 May 2012 where the packages arrive 10 May 2012.It is quite likely these will get an additional 1 day delay in transit as there will be no officers on the ground to do the inspection work on strike day and it will be done on their return on 11 May.
There is no workaround. Customs do not expect any of their officers to break the strike and we cannot release inspections until they have inspected them.
