We will collect enough information to match you with the right container size and transportation method.

Factors that affect the cost of shipping

Our quote will be based on several factors. The main factors include:

  • Destination port: Charges vary based on a specific port’s regulations.
  • The volume and weight of your items.
  • The time of the year: Prices increase during the high season months (August, September, January, and February).
  • The distance.
  • The transport types. Air and sea charge differently. Air transport can be up to five times more expensive than sea transport.

Other additional factors that may affect the shipping cost include:

  • Insurance: You are required to purchase insurance. The amount is based on the monetary value of your items.
  • Custom fees: Bulgarian custom fees will apply on arrival.
  • Inspections: If your container is selected for inspection, the cost incurred is added to your shipping price.
  • General Rate Increase (GRI): The norm in international shipping is to adjust rates based on operational costs. Knowledge of this will help you in choosing the cheapest shipping date.

Which size of shipping container works best for me?

Depending on the size and number of items, you can choose between a 20ft and a 40ft container. Items from 1-bedroom, 2-bedrooms, and 3-bedrooms can fit in a 20ft container. If your home is larger than that, the 40ft container will suit you.

You have the choice to either pay for the entire container or only pay for the area your items occupy. The FCL (Full Container Load) option is your best bet if the container can be filled with your items. If there is enough space for another person’s items, go will the LCL (Less Than Container Load) option to reduce your costs.

Understanding the different types of freight transportation

When shipping a container to Bulgaria, there are two viable types of freight transportation:

  • Air Transport: It is fast and efficient. Your items will arrive in Bulgaria in 2-4 business days. The downside is that air freight transport can cost up to five times the sea freight prices.
  • Sea Transport (Ocean freight shipping): Low cost and environment friendly. Expect your container to arrive in Bulgaria in 2-8 weeks.
