How do I book a shipment?

Getting started: booking your first shipment

If you received a quote via ARTA Instant Quote, you can book your guaranteed rate immediately. Click "book now" and you will be prompted to confirm an insurance option, provide contact details, and then pay via credit card.

Please note, your shipment is not booked until it has been paid for. You will receive an email confirmation once you have paid, and a second email shortly after that denotes the carrier and expected collection and delivery dates.


If you received custom quotes from the Extended Request form, please click "Select & Pay For Quote" on the quote you would like to book. You will be prompted to pay for your shipment, after which you will receive an email confirmation that your shipment is booked.

You will receive email updates for all booked shipments confirming the carrier and with any relevant tracking information.
