James Cargo - Half term report (well they have to get us back yet :-) )
Shipping from the UK (Manchester) to New York.
James Cargo Services IATA, AATA, IPATA and DEFRA approved Cargo Agent
Bikes have been packed, and the plane the should be on has landed, that is a good start. We follow tomorrow.
Staff are friendly and knowledgeable about packing bikes, they even show you a video of the full process.
Overall a very satisfactory service (so far ) at a decent price.
I'd like to say easy flowing and hitch less, but their quote/order system seems flawed.
Our 1st problem was the price quoted was from Felixstow, so I ended up going into the Manchester office to sort it all out.
Once the bikes were packed, we had a few hiccups over the final price and a 3% surcharge for using a debit card. It was all sorted out amicably with 2 emails and 1 phone call to end back at the pre-agreed price.
The price issue was down to the quote system not detailing all charges exactly and showing insurance as inclusive or not. Nor do the quotes state the 3% surcharge for debit cards ( I expect that to change :-) )
Anyway, £948 for an XJR1300 (one way), sending back by sea for £380 in 3 months or so.
