Moving Overseas by Sea Freight
How are my belongings moved 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), and 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;
FCL (Full Container Load)
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.
LCL (Less than Container Load)
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.
