Cyprus has recently started exploratory drilling for gas, a process that requires specialist machinery and skilled workers. As a result, more machinery is being shipped from the UK to Cyprus, and British workers are relocating to undertake the work. With Andrews Shipping you can ship anything from heavy machinery to personal belongings quickly and safely.
Shipping Machinery to Cyprus
Heavy machinery can be shipped overseas on a cargo ship with careful preparation. Shipping methods include; container shipping and roll-on roll-off (ro-ro).
Providing that the machinery has compatible dimensions, it can be shipped inside a secure container. Large equipment may need to be disassembled to make it more compact and suitable for transport. Heavy equipment with wheels can be shipped using the ro-ro method.
When shipping, it’s important to ensure that the machinery is thoroughly clean. This will help to prevent it being pulled apart in quarantine at the destination port. Before shipping, you should also write an accurate inventory including the make, model and condition of any machinery. This will provide a record of existing flaws in the rare event of damage.
We can quickly ship machinery from the UK to Cyprus, from site pick up to delivery in the destination country. Once you make a booking, we’ll arrange your shipment and provide you with an estimated arrival date.
We can even collect your machinery and transport it to the UK port. We’ll also complete any complex paperwork and manage the safe delivery of your equipment in Cyprus. This includes helping to ensure smooth customs clearance and transportation to your destination. We can also provide maritime insurance to cover you in the event of loss or damage.
