CONTAINER SHIPPING

International container shipping rates can sometimes be a pretty complex business but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.To start collecting quotes now, simply request a quote at the top of this page. We’ve sourced these shipping rates from WorldFreightRates.com.Depending on the volume of goods you want to ship, you may not need to pay for the use of a whole container. We have devised a system for people with smaller amounts of cargo where several customers can share the space of a single container. This is called a ‘less than container load’ (LCL) or a part-load shipment. Typically, people who are moving the contents of a one-bedroom flat can opt for LCL, but volumes greater than that will usually require a whole container. This is called a ‘full container load’ (FCL) or sole-use shipment. It’s a bit like the difference between a private taxi and a bus.

  • What is the difference between FCL and LCL

    Depending on the volume of goods you want to ship, you may not need to pay for the use of a whole container. Shipping companies have devised a system for people with smaller amounts of cargo where several customers can share the space of a single container. This is called a ‘less than container load’ (LCL) or a part-load shipment. Typically, people who are moving the contents of a one-bedroom flat can opt for LCL, but volumes greater than that will usually require a whole container. This is called a ‘full container load’ (FCL) or sole-use shipment. It’s a bit like the difference between a private taxi and a bus.

  • Which container sizes are available?

    There are actually about 16 different kinds of shipping container, but luckily there are only two that you need to know about: the 20-foot and the 40-foot. 20-foot container A 20-foot container will typically hold the contents of a three-bedroom house. This means stuff like furniture, beds, fridges, TVs and storage boxes. The actual volume of a 20-foot container is 33 cubic metres (cbm), but in reality there is normally only about 25-28 cbm of usable space. 40-foot container A 40-foot container will give you double the amount of space and it doesn’t come at twice the price, so it’s definitely better value for money if you have a lot of stuff to bring. Most houses with four (or more) bedrooms will most likely need a 40-foot container, unless it’s one of those trendy houses without much furniture. The 40-foot container technically contains 67 cbm of space, although only about 54-58 cbm ends up being usable. If you want another visual aid, just double the numbers we gave you for the 20-foot container
