Logistics and Shipping A House Package From Tamlin BC

At Tamlin your house package materials are carefully organized and checked in our shipping yard before the loading process begins. Materials are examined for quality, quantity and specifications which will match your house package plans.  Packages and crates are custom made to protect contents, and each item is numbered/labelled, and recorded on an itemized packing list.  Typically 53 foot tarped flat deck trucks are used for deliveries, but Tamlin can arrange many other types of deliveries to suit your needs and site conditions, smaller trucks, enclosed trailers, rail, barge, ferry etc.  Tamlin also ships 40 foot sealed containers ocean freight to overseas destinations.

Photos are taken of the load so when the truck arrives you will have a great understanding where your building crew is going to place all the freight when it arrives.  

Normally a carrier will allow 2 hours to unload the truck when it arrives. You will be asked to have either a forklift or a zoom boom to off load the material. Packages are numbered for ease of organization on site. 

Canada USA Partnership  Shipping to the U.S. has never been so easy. With a 30% advantage for our American friends….What an amazing time to buy?
