Testimonials

Over the years we have dealt with many consolidation services. Since we moved the majority of our groupage business to Mannson Freight they are by far the most responsive and flexible of those we have used. The customer service is second to none, they are very easy people to deal with, & the staff in the office are all very friendly and efficient. I would have no hesitation in recommending them. My only regret is that I didn’t move the business sooner.

Should I insure my goods when shipping?

^

A: Firstly check if your current good insurance covers goods in transit. If not then we would always recommend insuring goods with us. Our insurance is underwritten by CNA who are one of the worlds largest insurers and for a small premium your goods will be covered door to door. If you chose not to insure then you are taking a small risk, however the premiums for insurance are so small in relation to the value of the goods you are shipping that it is worth paying for insurance in most cases. Contact sales@mannson.com for an insurance price, we can even insure goods that are not being shipped with us.
