Do they give specific details about their experience, if not it’s wise to be suspicious, ask about the Directors, who are they and what experience do they have in the transportation industry ( after all, its only fair, they want you to hand over your hard earned $$$$$$, ask yourself, who am I handing my money over too!). How many containers have they shipped to Tonga. Do they make what looks like a lot of exaggerated claims on their website, about their company and experience, yet don’t seem to offer much detail , if so, well done! your on to them! do not risk it, don’t call them.
