Questions

At Brew Movers, we work hard to fulfill your logistics and supply chain needs. But it’s also essential that
our prospective clients understand what we do and how we do it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Beer is typically shipped as Class 65 with NMFC code 111470. In certain situations, the class may change, which is why we are here to help!

Brew Movers can either help you ship product with a Credit Card on file or we can work to establish a line of credit. Please submit this form and a team member will get the process started for you.

We have vetted our carrier base to assure each of our carrier partners has the proper authority and insurance to haul beer. Carrier regulations change frequently and shipping with the wrong carrier could cause significant delays in delivering your product until an approved carrier can collect the load. 

Email us at support@brewmovers.com to find out who is approved currently.

Brew Movers uses the Pallet Parka, the latest temperature-controlled technology in freight, to protect your product from both hot and cold weather conditions. Additionally, all of our selected carrier partners offer “Protect From Freeze” on each shipment. During the winter months, we highly suggest selecting this option when booking.

We work with our brewery and festival clients in order to determine the best solution for on-time delivery, with guaranteed delivery dates and times. Be sure to choose a “Guaranteed” option for delivery when shipping to festivals.

Yes! We have lots of experience shipping brewery equipment such as fermentors, Brite Tanks, kegs, and entire brew systems from vendors such as BrewFab.

We can also ship all your ingredients—malts, hops, fruits, etc. We are very confident we can do it cheaper and more efficiently than what you are currently getting from your ingredient vendors.

All of our carrier partners provide lift gate service. Make sure you are selecting “Lift Gate” for either pick up or delivery if there are no loading docks.

We have the easiest claims process in transportation. Click the claims button and input your quantity and cost. Your rep then handles the entire claims process to ensure you get paid.

Ordering beer ingredients in higher quantities and using brewery software to monitor production, track ingredients and expiry dates, identify batch lots and use-by dates, and inventory raw materials and sales are two of the things you can do to keep on top of your beer supply chain.

Yes, outsourcing the management of your brewery logistics is a good move. When you do, you gain access to the large distribution network of carriers and fleets your logistics partner has which you normally won’t have access to.

You’ll also get expert documentation handling, reduce the burden of back-office management, and free up your time so you can focus more on your business.

LTL or less-than-truckload shipping is for freight that’s too big for a parcel carrier but too small for a full truck. We combine your cargo with other partial cargoes from other customers to create a full truckload. This way, you only pay for the space you used and get your goods delivered more quickly.

We can help and assist you with arranging your international shipping, inbound and outbound. Please contact our staff at international@brewmovers.com

If your concern or question is not on this list, you may get in touch with us through our contact form, emailing us at info@brewmovers.com or support@brewmovers.com, or calling us at 888.720.3356 (BREW).

Brew Movers has helped us transport brewery equipment, beer for out of state festivals, and beer ingredients several times over the past two years without any apprehension. The aggressive pricing and the quick response times means I will continue to use them whenever possible in the future.

We have used Brew Movers for shipping everything from a few cases to a 10 barrel system with great results! The Brew Movers crew is always super speedy and professional. So happy we made the switch!


— Megan, Business Mgr - Side Project Brewing
Brew Movers is the best in the business. Got hired on with my company with little knowledge in truckload shipping and LTL. Maria and Laura taught me everything I know today! They are the best! Both have pulled off some real magic, getting recovery trucks when things go wrong is never a problem for them! Love this company!


— Ryan Castro

Brandon and his crew were amazing to work with. They shipped an entire brewhouse for us. Truck arrived on time and nothing was damaged. I highly recommend these guys for any equipment shipping or tank shipping needs.

We have been using Brew Movers and we are extremely pleased with them. Whenever we can, we prefer to ship with them! Great customer service: Not only do we get a promptly response regarding estimates, but outstanding communication from pickup to final delivery. Brandon is our rep, and he always finds the best shipping costs, as well as getting last minute shipping arrangements, all done with a smile over the phone and the courtesy of getting the job done properly. I highly recommend this company!
