How could I understand European Deliveries from beginning to end? The only way I could find out was to experience it for myself.

Summary Of My Experience


Send in the Pre reservation request form completed to check availability date even on short notice, the Department will let the CA know if the date is available. Try to minimize phone calls since it slows things down for them




Pre reservation request form should be double checked by both the CA and the Client, for legibility, correct pickup date ( no weekends or Holidays) and every line filled out. I was amazed at how many needed some type of clarification and how much extra time is spent doing this. This would certainly HELP the European Delivery Department to be able to focus on other things.



The Purchase Order must be completely filled out as well and be 100 % accurate because if items are missing or if the information doesn’t match the passport, it really slows down the office while they have to spend time tracking down the CA to get the correct information. Both the CA and the Client should read each line carefully to make sure this information is accurate before they sign it !


There are over 3000 CA’s in North America, there are 5 very talented and dedicated people handling European,

Military and Diplomatic sales. If CA’s and Clients can be

sure these two forms are filled out properly, the staff can

have more time to focus on other issues.
