Cleaning your Machinery for Export

Cleaning your machinery and equipment before exportation is essential. It is a legal requirement put in place by each country and their import laws.

Dirty and soiled machinery is considered a biosecurity threat. It is not taken lightly and any machinery or equipment that doesn’t meet the standards can be rejected from entering the country.

If your equipment or machinery is found to have any organic matter on it such as weeds, dirt, disease and pests It will be deemed as unfit for entrance. Therefore, it can be re-exported at your expense.

That is why it is important to find a company such as DC Merrett, that can provide a service that will meet the standards set by each country so that entrance refusal doesn’t occur.

At DC Merrett, our team recognise the importance of meeting these import laws. That is why they will always ensure that the export preparation procedure is undertaken with the utmost care and precision. This helps reassure our clients that their machinery or equipment will be cleaned, dismantled and loaded to the best standard.
