**IMPORTANT MESSAGE RE SHIPPING PAPERWORK**

One of the things we would like to improve on in 2017 is ensuring efficiency; not only in moving and delivering your goods but also in ensuring that all the billing information is correct.

One of the key things to ensure this is for you to ensure that a fully completed consignment note is handed over with your cargo at our point of collection/ shipment.

This really needs to be completed by the person who is responsible for paying so they can be certain that everything they need is included; advising us who is to pay and address details and also whether insurance is required or not.

If insurance is not required, we have a maximum liability which will rarely cover goods fully in the rare occurrence of loss or damage of goods.

Our consignment note can easily be downloaded from this website – you will find it at the bottom right hand side of every web page. if you have any questions in completing this, please do not hesitate to contact our Guernsey office on 01481 723400.
