For shipments up to 1,000 miles this is typically quicker and more convenient for our customers. We also work with truckload and less than truckload carriers and brokers to handle both domestic and international machinery shipments. Our discounts with LTL carriers such as Con-Way and Yellow Freight are substantial and are available to our customers on collect shipments.
Supply shipments – These time sensitive shipments are handled by a variety of carriers including FedEx, R&L Carriers, Standard Forwarding, and Yellow.
PRS works with the leading leasing companies and brokers to find the best fit for our customers.
Leasing can be an attractive way to get the equipment you need without tying up your credit line at the bank. Leasing also requires less money down than traditional bank loans. For instance, a machine that cost $9,000 would be a lease payment of $215 per month. Most lease contracts start with an initial payment of the first and last month’s payment. Therefore, this $9,000 machine could be in your plant, making you money for only an initial expense of $430.
