Collection of Komori Lithographic Presses from seaport and transportation to Merritts HMRC approved bonded storage facility. Delivery and installation at print company.
Company Profile: A UK based printing company
Project Outline: In order to secure the best deal a leading print company had ordered a new machine from the manufacturer and required HMRC bonded storage in order to defer VAT and import duty whilst premises were readied for its installation.
Merritts were appointed to receive, bonded store, deliver and install Komori Lithographic presses and enter them into our HMRC bonded storage facility.
We received hi-cube shipping containers into our storage facility direct from docks and handled all necessary paperwork including customs clearance documentation.
Using a lorry mounted crane with 30Te capacity, we lifted the shipping containers to floor level and assessed shipped goods for condition and took photographic records.
We removed print units and ancillary equipment from container using a Versa-Lift and 7Te container spec Hyster fork lift truck and transferred them to a holding area where they were stored until further instruction
Dismantling and loading
Our company changed our supplier for these services from another of the larger names within the machinery installation field and we were immediately impressed with the support that we received from the Merritts management and board.
We were also impressed with the scope of the services that Merritts could offer in house which made our own procedures simpler and gained our company more control over the import and installation phase.
We would not hesitate to recommend Merritts and would be pleased to provide a written reference if required.
