We feel proud every time we put the “Made in Canada” sticker on a recently finished DROPLET trailer. British Columbia has been a great place for our production operation as well as for our own off-grid adventures. But the fact that we are located in BC might raise a concern about shipping to other provinces and the United States. Worry no more, we are able to get our tiny camper all the way to your doorstep no matter where you live.
As you can see on the map, our most common shipping destinations are on the West Coast but that does not mean that we are limited to those locations. We have experience with shipping all around the globe. From just a 20 minute long drive from our shop to New South Wales in Australia, we are confident that your DROPLET trailer gets to you as fast as possible and the whole process is completely stress-free for you. Even during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The process starts with getting you in touch with a recommended shipping company with a quick delivery service and reliable insurance for vehicles as well as goods (learn How to get the best truck insurance quote here). We serve as a middleman in the whole operation, we are not looking to make a profit from shipping our trailers. The goal is simply for you to have your DROPLET teardrop trailer ready to use in a minimum amount of time. Perhaps you live somewhere in a European country, and already have a trusted company with expertise in Freight forwarding in Slovenia, Austria, Netherlands, or wherever else you live. Ultimately, we want to ensure that your trailer gets to you safe and sound.
The customer remains in control of making the final decision on the shipping companies. Perhaps you have certain requirements, or you simply already have a company in mind that, with the help of technology (pop over to these guys for reference), can ensure proper driver safety and fleet fuel management for the trucks used for their services. Of course, if you have your own trusted shipping partner, you are more than welcome to use their services. Once you agree on terms with the logistic company, we make sure the camper is ready for the pickup, all the paperwork is set and there will be no surprises on the way.
The main concern, especially with the latest travel restrictions, has been crossing the US/Canada borders. We can assure you that there is no need to worry about shipping to the United States. Our broker is located in Blaine, WA and they will handle all the administrative steps necessary for your lightweight trailer to get through the borders. All the brokerage fees are included in the USD pricing, you just need to pay your state sales tax, in case there is one. If you are located within a driving distance from Blaine, WA or you just want to experience a road trip to the beautiful state of Washington, you have an option to pick the trailer up at our yard anytime at no extra cost.
We understand that COVID-19 has complicated both domestic and international logistics but at DROPLET we are dedicated to providing a premium product with high-quality service, including shipping. Whether you choose to use our recommended shipping company or you have your own, we will make sure your DROPLET gets wherever you want it.
