With our shared container service, you will only use a portion of the container, and only pay for the space you use. This is the most inexpensive method. However, for larger or whole house shipping, you can use our sole-use container service to fill as needed. This is an exclusive service for the use of 20ft or 40ft shipping containers, perfect for bulky furniture. Then, you can opt for sea freight or air freight shipping, sea freight being the cheaper of the two; air freight being the faster option.
