What are the shipping methods for sending boxes?
Shipping Boxes via Air Freight
If you need your possessions in a hurry, air freight is the fastest transport method to move your goods internationally. Shipping Boxes via air freight are highly convenient, but this does come at a cost. Your quote for air freight Shipping Boxes is calculated based on the weight of your consignment, meaning it is not so economical especially for whole home loads.
If you are only sending a one bedroom apartment or just a few items of furniture and require them urgently, air freight is a convenient transport method. A lot of Movecorp clients will utilise our air freight service in conjunction with another transit mode. For example, sending a small quantity of items they need as a priority via air, anything else that is not so urgent they will send using another method to help keep costs low.
Another factor that could influence the cost of your air freight Shipping Boxes is what you decide to do with your goods upon their arrival at your end destination. You can opt to collect your belongings at the airport yourself, or you can allow one of our diligent overseas teams to deliver your goods direct to your front door.
Shipping Boxes via Sea Freight
For Shipping Boxes on a global scale, sea freight is a popular transport method of choice due to its cost-effectiveness and ease for clients. Depending on your journey’s end, Shipping Boxes via sea freight can be a slow process and so we recommend that you allocate ample time for your delivery.
Shared container load is perfect if are shipping a one bedroom flat, a studio apartment or a small office space. All of your goods and furnishings will be wrapped, packed and loaded onto a shared shipping container and you will only pay the space your luggage occupies.
Dedicated container load is the ideal Shipping Boxes method if you need to send an entire home load or a large commercial office space with equipment and furniture. You will pay for the personal use of a 20ft or 40ft shipping container. The 20ft container will comfortably fit a three-bedroom home and 40ft is ample space to send a vehicle alongside other goods.
