Shipping Powertrain (engine & transmission) from Hong Kong to NYC

Do you guys have any recommendations on which companies are dependable at shipping a crate with a powertrain (engine & transmission) 1200lbs from Hong Kong to New York City?

Kind regards,

Call these fellows:

Berklay International
JFK International Airport
Building 80
Jamaica, NY 11430


Ask for Dennis or Greg.

They are international freight forwarders and are terrific in terms of handling such affairs. They normally deal with air freight, so, tell them right up front that you are dealing with sea freight and ask them if they are willing to do this (they certainly have the capability).

Just a note of caution: They are typical New Yorkers and move at 90 mph, so, be ready to keep up with them, or they won't have time for you.

The cost of actually shipping the engine is not too bad, but, the fees attached to the shipping is where you can get burned. Port fees, customs fees, handling fees, etc. are all flat rated and can easily climb above $300. even for small shipments. So, ask detailed questions and make sure you know all the costs before you jump in.
