Not only will it have to be trucked twice, you will have to arrange crane time 4 timrs. Plus, by the time they decide to ship a truck would have had it there a long time sooner
I have had good experience getting containers moved by train across country, as well as shipping
passenger cars and trucks. In both cases, costs were significantly less then trucking.
I never had a problem with wait times, but again, that is my experience.
I was just suggesting investigating it. It may be cheaper to lift
, transport, crane, rail, crane, transport and splash than lift
, truck, splash.
Or it may not be. It is just an exercise in logistics. A freight broker may be able to assist.
I just think if a long distance transport is the case, it is worth investigating.
