MOVING OVERSEAS BY SEA FREIGHT
There are two main sizes of shipping containers that you can consider.
-20 foot which holds approximately 30 cubic meters (average 3 bedroom home).
-40 foot which holds approximately 60 cubic meters (average 4-5 bedroom home).
There are a number of container usage options available when moving personal effects via Sea Freight.
Full Container Load – FCL
If you require a Full Container Load to yourself then you will use the FCL method which allows for direct shipping of your goods in your own dedicated container.
Allows you to share the cost of a container with other people moving personal effects to the same destination which is in a high volume area.
Less than Container Load – LCL
Less than Container Load method allows you to send smaller shipments to low volume destinations that don’t have regular groupage services, by co-loading with commercial cargo shared containers subject to suitable protection, e.g. crating.
*If you are seeking a faster moving method then why not try moving by air freight.*
MOVING OVERSEAS BY AIR FREIGHT
Air freight is the quickest method of sending your goods overseas by far, usually taking 7-10 days on a full door to door move basis.
Moving some items by air freight is ideal for those items you will require immediately at destination, allowing the remainder of your items to be sent by traditional shipping methods.
Airlines charge on weight basis calculated from either the actual weight of the shipment, or a minimum weight calculated on a set weight to volume scale (which is 167kgs per cubic meter).
Moving by airfreight is also ideal if you have a low volume or light weight shipment, with items that are important to your daily life and are needed pretty much as soon as you arrive at your destination.
Although moving overseas by air freight is quick and efficient, it can amount to a more costly move.
