De-Potter Group offers a range of both sea and air cargo services for sending good or personal effects overseas. We offer both ‘Door-to-Door’ and ‘Door-to-Depot’ services.
See the difference in brief below.
Door-to-Door: To the door of the building at the recipients delivery address. Included in service
Door-to-Depot: To the airport or sea port in the receiving country for customer to collect. Not included -clearance is responsibility of owner of goods.
Our price for ‘Door-to-Door’ covers the total delivery and clearing service (excluding government charges and taxes). The Door-to-Depot price is for delivery to the depot only.
There may be further ancillary charges to pay at the destination and this may include airport terminal fees, storage fees, and documentation fees. At most destinations, you can clear your goods by yourself to avoid customs clearance charges, but it requires time to visit the Customs office with your passport, shipping documents and complete the necessary Customs forms.
A Door-to-Depot service does not necessarily mean a cheaper service than the total Door-to-Door service. In many cases (depending on the destination and consignment size) a Door-to-Door service can be far more economical as well as being very convenient.
