Cost Of Shipping A Container To Bahamas

How Much Does It Cost Of Shipping A Container To Bahamas?

Bahamas Container Shipping Cost

Several factors influence the cost of shipping a container to the Bahamas. There are obvious factors to consider, such as the size of your cargo and the distance to travel, but there are additional factors to consider. Three Movers can assist you in navigating this complicated process, and you will be glad you chose us.

Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping

There are a lot of things to think about but five of them stand out as the most important. In addition to the obvious factors of distance and cargo size you should also think about the mode of transportation the time of year and the final destination. You should verify all costs and levies before traveling to the Bahamas.

Furthermore, the time of the year also plays a role due to the peak shipping season. The peak season of the Bahamas is between August and October. During these times, there may be a spike in demand for services, which may impact your costs.

Which Size Of Shipping Container Works Best For Me?

A total of 16 different types of shipping containers are available today. There are just two types of shipping containers to be aware of: the 20ft container and the 40ft container. This is the case since the rest are primarily for business or industrial moves. In most cases, a 20-foot container can hold the contents of three bedrooms, while a 40-foot container can hold twice as much. Even though 40-foot containers are double the size of 20-foot containers, they rarely cost twice as much. A 20-foot container can accommodate roughly 200 mattresses or 100 washing machines (though not at the same time).

In addition, a 40-foot container is a better value for money if you have a lot of items to transport. A 20-foot container, for example, will be insufficient for your other items if you have a car that you cannot leave behind. As a result, you'll almost probably need a 40-foot shipping container if you plan to transfer your car as well as other home items.

Understanding The Different Types Of Freight Transportation

You have two alternatives when it comes to Bahamas shipping: air freight or ocean freight. You should expect a substantially longer trip time with a lower cost if you ship via sea freight. To be exact, it’s 5 times lower than air freight. Therefore, go for the sea if you want cost-effective shipping and don’t mind the duration your goods will take to arrive.

Additional Shipping Costs

After you've chosen your preferred mode of transportation, you'll need to factor in some additional shipping costs. Here are a few shipping services costs that you need to consider:

When cargo is shipped to the Bahamas, it can be picked up quite easily at the port or airport, at least in terms of distance. If you don’t have a way to transport your belongings to the final destination, you should consider using a door-to-door service.
