Clark & Rose dealt with a difficult pick-up (20ft container up a farm track) and got everything to my door in under 6 weeks, based on a 6-8 week estimate. Slight delay in Port in UAE due to Ramadan hours, but that is not their fault. Roughly 3,500 GBP for a 20ft container from Scotland to UAE.
Clark & Rose were very helpful. Our local agents were Writers. They were also excellent--very quick and good communication.
