Low-Cost Financing (Financing is available for customers in the United States.)
Centra Funding, LLC specializes in financing Aqua-Cycles for water sports businesses. Their online application is quick, easy to complete, secure, and will be completed within 4-6 hours. You are under no obligation to use this financial option when approved, but at least you will have the option pre-approved and available. Our dedicated Centra Funding agent, Drew Kabo, will confidentially assist with your application and advise you on the best payment options for your specific situation. CLICK HERE to get started today with the quick, no-obligation finance application so you can order your Aqua-Cycles tomorrow.
Your discount is based on the quantity you buy. You receive our lowest discount price with every quote. If you resell our products, these are still our prices to you. We use the same discount structure for everyone rather than separate discounts for end-users, dealers, distributors, and importers.
Payment is due at the time your order is placed or through our low-cost financing option (see above Low-Cost Financing). As soon as payment is confirmed, we schedule your order for shipment.
Exceptions and Special Circumstances
We understand special situations require special payment arrangements, such as an initial deposit and final payment before shipping. We will do our best to accommodate your situation.
A Proforma invoice is available, such as for your lender, leasing agent, or accounting department prior to placing your order. We honor proforma invoice pricing of products for 30 days and freight quotes for 7 days.
Sending freight from point A to point B can be a complex process with lots of variables. Negotiating the best shipping price can be even more difficult. We are glad to earn your business by doing that for you if desired. With over 30 years of shipping experience, the volume of freight we ship, and our frequently renegotiated contracts, our freight pricing is the best in the industry.
Each order is unique, based upon the freight carrier, route, destination, and quantities. Give us your complete delivery address or international seaport and the quantity desired. We will get back to you with the best quote for your order.
Domestic Destinations (United States, Canada and Mexico)
Truck freight is for most domestic destinations. We can ship your order in 1 to 3 days. You will receive tracking information and other documents once your order has left our plant. There are no additional shipping charges for SparePaks shipped with Aqua-Cycles™ at the time of purchase.
Sailing vessels and air freight are used for international destinations. We can ship your order in 1 to 3 days. You will receive tracking information and other documents once your order has left our plant. There is no additional shipping charge for SparePaks shipped with Aqua-Cycles™ at the time of purchase. For international shipping terms and conditions, see INCOTERMS: CIF
We can load up to 9 Aqua-Cycles and SparePaks into a 20ft standard shipping container, up to 16 Aqua-Cycles and SparePaks into a 40ft high cube shipping container, and up to 20 Aqua-Cycles and SparePaks into a 45ft high cube shipping container. (High cube shipping containers are not available to all port destinations; in which case we must use slightly smaller standard containers.) Large orders are loaded into a combination of containers.
This is the best option when you want your Aqua-Cycles and SparePaks right away but expect the air freight shipping cost to be at least $2,500 per Aqua-Cycle™.
Us or You On Shipping
Most customers want us to handle the details of trucking and international shipping, but if you would rather do it yourself, simply put us in touch with your pre-arranged United States truck line, freight forwarder, or consolidator. You negotiate the shipping cost and initial details with them, such as FOB Brownwood TX, and we will follow up with them to coordinate the pickup date and location details.
Spare parts are readily available from our warehouse and ship worldwide within 24 hours. Order SparePaks and other spare parts when you order your Aqua-Cycles™ as you will need them eventually. We package them with your Aqua-Cycles™ and they ship for no additional shipping cost.
Shipment Dimensions: One Aqua-Cycle™ has a shipping weight of 525 lbs. (including pallet and carton weights) and is 344 cubic feet. Each Aqua-Cycle™ is shipped partially assembled meaning that we assemble the drivetrain (pedal crank to the rear axle). You attach the wheels, seat, and front fork by following our assembly instructions.
Truck, Sea and Air Packaging
Each Aqua-Cycle™ ships as two units.
– The three wheels and one seat on one pallet (254# / 48”x48”x91” / 121.34 ft³ / Class 250 / NMFC 156600-3)
– Up to 5 frames on one pallet (???# / 74″x72″x???” / Class 250 / NMFC 190820) Weight is calculated at 100# per frame plus 160# for the one pallet. Height is calculated at 42″ for a pallet with one frame plus 14″ additional height for each additional frame. Up to 5 frames of 96″ height can be loaded onto one pallet. Cubic feet are calculated by length times width times height (all in inches) divided by 1728 for the cubic feet.
For example: 5 Aqua-Cycles™ ship as:
5 pallets of 3 wheels and 1 seat each (total: 1,270# / 607ft³)
1 pallet of 5 frames (total: 660# / 296ft³)
Total shipment of 6 units / 1,930# / 903ft³
Truck lines are typically used for shipments within the United States, Canada, and some locations in Mexico. We will locate a truck line for your shipment that delivers to your area and has a reasonable rate. If you have a preferred carrier, we would be glad to use them, but they must have pick-up capability in Brownwood, Texas 76801. Some of the truck lines which service Brownwood, Texas are Central Transport, Estes Express, Southeastern Freight Lines, AAA Cooper, Roadway, Yellow, Overnight, SAIA and Consolidated.
Shipments sent “Shipping Prepaid” means that you pay for the shipping charges with your order. Special arrangements can be made for collect, on account, or 3rd-party-billing shipments, but often the freight costs are higher than what we have already negotiated for prepaid.
Point of Origin
Aqua-Cycles™ ship from our plant in Brownwood, Texas 76801.
Most freight carrier lines can track your shipment as it moves from us to you. Call the local office of the freight carrier and ask them to trace your shipment. If you need tracking or a Bill of Lading number, contact us and we will get that for you.
Call us with any questions about shipping and freight lines.
You are responsible for properly receiving your freight shipment, including inspection of each item upon delivery for missing pieces or damage, and for noting anything out of the ordinary on the freight bill before signing for your delivery. If you sign for 6 pieces and only receive 5, the freight carrier is under no obligation to find or reimburse you for the missing piece. If you sign for a piece that has visible damage at the time of delivery but do not note that damage on the freight bill, the freight carrier can claim the damage happened after you received it, so it is not their responsibility.
In the exceedingly rare instance of missing pieces or freight damage, you must file a claim with the freight carrier separately from noting the damage information on the freight bill. They must pay for the replacement of the missing pieces and repair or replacement of damaged pieces. You received the shipment, so it is up to you to file the claim with the freight carrier before they do anything. We were not there at the time of delivery and cannot file claims for you. You are the one receiving the shipment and you have the delivery person with you at the time of receiving the shipment who can make notes on the freight bill about your shipment at the time of delivery and before you sign for it.
Based upon Federal regulations concerning freight shipments, you legally take ownership and possession of your order at the time the freight carrier takes possession of it from us. We have delivered the shipment to them in good condition, and they have signed for it. They, not you or us, are responsible for the proper care and handling of your order until it is received and signed by you or your representative.
Help or Questions
The above is not to relieve ourselves of responsibility for helping if there is a problem with the freight process. We are available to assist with a problem, but we can only assist you. Please call us immediately (right after the delivery person adds notes about the problem on the freight bill, signs it, and gives you a copy) if there are pieces missing or damaged. We work with you to get the problem resolved as quickly as possible.
Shipments to International Seaports
Overseas Shipment Dimensions
One Aqua-Cycle™ has a shipping weight of 234 kg (525 lbs) and is 6.76 cubic meters (237 cu ft). Each is shipped partially assembled, meaning that we assemble the drivetrain (pedal crank to the rear axle) and you attach the wheels, seat, and front fork upon delivery.
Each Aqua-Cycle™ as shipped in three parts.
– One set of three wheels (88kg / 1.22m x 1.22m x 1.66m = 2.5m³)
– One box of seat, parts and SparePak (28kg / 0.66m x 0.66m x 1.25m = 0.55m³)
– Pallet of frames (xx-kg / 1.88m x 1.83m x xx-m = xx-m³) Weight of xx-kg calculates at 46kg per frame plus 73kg per pallet. Height of xx-m calculates at 1.07m for pallet with one frame plus 0.36m additional height for each additional frame. Total of xx-m³ is all frames on one pallet.
Up to 4 frames load on one pallet for shipment by sea in a container. The total number of frames on one pallet for shipment by air varies per carrier.
For example: A shipment of 8 Aqua-Cycles™ by sea in a 20ft container:
8 sets of 3 wheels each (total: 740kg / 20m³)
8 boxes of 1 seat, parts and SparePak (total: 224kg / 5.0m³)
2 pallets of 4 frames each (total: 510kg / 14.7m³)
Shipment by sea in a 20ft container = 18 units / 1474kg weight / 39m³ total
Full Container Load shipments by sea:
– 20 or less Aqua-Cycles™ and SparePaks load into one 45ft “high cube” container (when loaded at our plant)
– 16 or less Aqua-Cycles™ and SparePaks load into one 40ft “high cube” container (when loaded at our plant)
– 15 or less Aqua-Cycles™ and SparePaks load into one 40ft standard container (when loaded at our plant)
– 9 or less Aqua-Cycles™ and SparePaks load into one 20ft standard container (when loaded at our plant)
To maximize the number of Aqua-Cycles per container, sometimes we find it necessary to separate wheels from complete sets. There may be a few loose wheels in the container rather than all in sets.
We load your FCL order into a container at our plant for no additional charge. This helps minimize your costs, allows us to be sure your order is properly packed to protect the contents and maximizes the number of units that can be loaded into the container. FCL is the most inexpensive method of shipping Aqua-Cycles™ overseas.
Less than Container Load shipments by sea: LCL is when a variety of products are loaded into the same container by a shipping line, freight forwarder, logistics company, or consolidator. For quantities of 1 to 3 Aqua-Cycles, LCL may be cost-effective. For shipments of 4 or more Aqua-Cycles™, it is less inexpensive to ship FCL.
The air freight shipping costs can range from $2,000 to $5,000 per Aqua-Cycle™. We recommend shipping air freight only when you must receive your order quickly. Please do not ask for an air freight shipping quote unless you are prepared to pay an extremely high shipping rate.
These include the various transportation costs and other fees such as for documents, special handling, insurance, export security clearance, etc. Not included are destination customs / duty / taxes / DDC charges, which are the responsibility of the consignee(customer) to pay separately.
Typically, customers want us to handle the details of international shipping, but if you would rather do it yourself, simply put us in touch with your United States freight forwarder or consolidator. We will coordinate the final details with them.
Aqua-Cycle™ orders ship INCOTERMS: CIF unless other arrangements are made at the time of placing your order.
We will be glad to request a shipping quote to the international seaport or airport nearest you. We must know approximately when you will be placing your order, the quantity of Aqua-Cycles™, SparePaks, and the destination seaport or airport. Shipping quotes are estimations and subject to change at the time of order.
