Fully Insured Gas Cylinder Shipping Services

Wide Load Shipping will fully insure your shipping containers to protect them against damage that could occur during transport. Gas cylinders are delicate and require to be handled with total care. They can explode or roll off a moving truck causing damage. We fill out a bill of lading form at the pick-up location to note down the condition of your gas cylinders. That form helps us at the delivery location to confirm whether they arrived in a similar state. If the gas cylinders don’t match the details on the bill of lading form, you will be fully compensated. Our drivers are careful not to speed when shipping gas cylinders since vigorous movement could lead to straps getting loose, causing damage. In addition, they stop often to ensure the straps holding the cylinders are tightened.
