Shipping Worldwide via Container has never been simpler

Shipping Containers 1We will offer you expert advice on the best way to send your goods in a shipping container abroad. At Movecorp, we have worked with innumerable customers using various shipping methods but we always ensure their precious items are delivered in perfect condition.

Whether your chosen method is air freight, road freight or sea freight, and no matter if you ship items big or small, Movecorp has done it all and won’t let you down.

How Does Shipping Containers Internationally Work?

Beginning your international freight shipping journey is as simple as giving us a call. Over the phone, we can determine your needs and send out a home surveyor to assess your household items or office furniture – for example.

We package the goods using the best materials for safekeeping, unpacking it upon arrival, too. In order to ensure you understand each part of the process, and are getting the right shipping container to suit your needs and budget, you will be given your own move coordinator. This move manager will help you step-by-step when using our shipping containers.

Put simply, any item of furniture, box or over-sized item is placed in a shipping container before being sent via Sea Freight. Whether your items require a full container depends on the size or weight, but typically a shared container option is the most cost-effective way to ship any item.

Simply give us a call on 020 7127 4597 to get started, and we can handle the rest.

What Shipping Containers Are Available?

Whatever your container shipping needs are, Movecorp can accommodate. We have two different sized shipping containers:

  • 20ft Shipping Container
  • 40ft Shipping Container

If you are sending a large number of items, and most of them are large in dimension, then you can opt to use the large 40ft container. This may be appropriate for whole house removals. However, for cost-effective and smaller container shipping, sharing a 20ft container would be best.

How Much Does It Cost to Use a Shipping Container?

Container shipping costs vary depending on the needs of the customer. You could be moving a small number of items, therefore you wouldn’t need a large shipping container and you could use a shared container – where you only pay for the space you use. However, for whole house shipping, for example, a sole-use container would be needed.

Split Container Shipping

The most inexpensive method for shipping is using a shared shipping container and transporting via sea freight. If you require a faster delivery, then air freight rates would be the best option for you.

Included within the cost of container shipping:

  • A move coordinator to help with the process
  • Insurance on your goods
