Groupage is a variant of the move that consists, basically, in sharing the delivery service or collection with other customers, regardless of the distance or the size of our move. Let’s learn more about what groupage is.
Some doubts about groupage
What is the main difference between groupage and moving? Groupage is used when the merchandise to be transported is not deposited in any warehouse, as an intermediary, or going to another transport. This system has advantages for both the company and the client. On the one hand, the company saves on costs and work; which, on the other hand, allows it to offer a really interesting price for the client. It also results in less handling, which prevents possible damage to the transported goods.
How are the schedules in the groupage? Fixed schedules are not established, but ample time flexibility so that the vehicle can pick up the merchandise along a route.
And what are the advice given by companies when hiring a groupage? That the client provides the greatest possible amount of data to guarantee the space destined for the merchandise. The data requested are: package type, number of packages, dimensions, if necessary a vehicle that has a lift door or not and place of origin and destination.
When should you use groupage?
- It is the best option for small removals when we want to save money.
- It is the most chosen option when we do not have demands with the time of the move.
- The insurance, the guarantee and the responsibility for damages remain unchanged. In this sense, the same service is offered and with the same guarantees as in a traditional move.
