Are you considering relocating to Austria? This guide can help you figure out how much it will cost to ship your belongings.

Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping

Shipping companies evaluate their expenses based on five factors. They are the following:

The Volume/Weight Of The Goods

Since it depends on the type of shipping you select, it’s not officially one or the other. The dimensions of your goods are most crucial in sea freight, whereas the weight of your goods is more important in air freight. The more goods you have, the more money it will cost to ship them to your new home.

The Type Of Transport

How will your shipment get to its destination? The mode of shipment will impact both the final cost and the time frame in which your items will arrive. If you have the time and the budget ocean freight shipping is a better option than air freight shipping. This is typically a far more cost-effective option than air transport.

The Distance Of The Journey

This one should go without saying. Shipping your belongings halfway across the world will cost more than a quick trip across the Mediterranean. Also, the cost of your move will be affected by whether it is port to port or door to door. If your shipping company transports your belongings all the way from your old front door to your new one, the fee will be higher.

The Destination Port

Customs tariffs and service fees are mandatory in every country. However, they differ from one country to another. The import tax imposed on a shipment in Austria is 20% of the total value of your merchandise. For example, if the declared worth of your goods is 500 EUR, an additional amount of 100 EUR in taxes must be paid before the shipments can be delivered to the recipient.

The Time Of The Year

International shipping, like any other industry, has peak seasons. Peak seasons in Austria are usually in the summer (from August and stretching to October). Prices for delivering goods to Langenstein port in Austria are usually higher since demands are greater during the peak season.

Which Size Of Shipping Container Works Best For Me?

There are at least 16 different types of shipping containers, but you only need to be familiar with two: the 20-foot and 40-foot containers. The rest are primarily for corporate and industrial moves.

How Big Is A 20ft Container?

Items in a three-bedroom house can easily be packed into a 20-foot container. This means that furniture, beds, refrigerators, and storage bins can all fit inside. To put that in perspective, a 20-foot container is roughly the size of a single garage and can house a lot of goods.

How Big Is A 40ft Container?

A 40-foot container provides double the amount of room as a 20-foot container without costing twice as much. If you have a lot of items to transport, 40-foot containers are clearly the superior option. Unless you have one of those trendy minimalist homes with little furnishings, houses with four (or more) bedrooms will almost certainly require a 40-foot container.


You may not need to pay for the entire container if the volume of goods you wish to transport is small. For people with smaller amounts of cargo, Three Movers has designed a system in which multiple clients can share the space of a single container. This is referred to as an LCL (Less Than Container Load) or part-load shipment.

LCL is normally sufficient for moving the contents of a one-bedroom flat, but volumes more than that will almost always necessitate the use of a full container. This is known as an FCL (Full Container Load) or sole-use shipment.

Additional Shipping Cost

You’ll need to factor in some additional shipping costs once you’ve decided on your mode of transportation. The following are some of them:

  • Customs duties
  • General Rate Increase (GRI)
  • Container inspection fees
  • Inland delivery charges
  • Quarantine fees
  • Insurance cover
