Cost Of Shipping A Container To Comoros

How Much Does It Cost To Ship A Container To Comoros?

Comoros Container Shipping Cost

Shipping a container to anywhere in the world is going to be a complex endeavor. The logistics involved are enough to make anyone think twice about approaching this kind of project. However, Three Movers isn't just anyone. We have a professional team of experts ready to assist you with every step of the process, providing you with all the details you need to make an informed decision. Plus we ship to Comoros. Let’s start by breaking down all the aspects of international shipping.

Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping

If you are shipping a container to another country there are several things you’ll have to consider. Among all the factors, there are 5 which are considered the most critical. These are the transportation method, the destination port, the time of the year, the weight or volume of your cargo, and the distance to travel. The last one should be pretty obvious, shipping to a country that’s very far from your own will incur more expenses.

The method of transportation options largely depends on your destination. If the country is connected to yours by land then you can use train or truck freight. In the case of Comoros, you’ll be needing either sea or air freight.

Finally, you will always have to deal with duties and fees wherever you go. Taxes exist everywhere. However, the time of the year is a variable that you can work around. Different places have different peak seasons when it comes to shipping. Traditionally, they are between the months of August and October.

Which Size Of Shipping Container Works Best For Me?

There are two main sizes of shipping containers for the general public: 20ft and 40ft. A 20ft container can fit the contents of a three-bedroom house, or about an average garage. That means that you could easily ship a car, but you won’t have much space for anything else. If you are shipping more than 3 bedrooms worth of stuff, or a car and other items, choose the 40ft option.

There are also two types of container load to choose from. Full Container Load (FCL) and Less Than Container Load (LCL). The former is the most cost-efficient option if you can fill it up. Your items will also be safer if they are all packed up together. The latter is good for those that can’t fill a container and want to save on costs.

Understanding The Different Types Of Freight Transportation

Shipping a container to Comoros means that you’ll have two types of transportation modes: Sea and Air cargo.

Sea freight shipping is the cheaper of the two options. Your cargo will take longer to arrive, but you’ll save a lot on costs. Air freight shipping is significantly more expensive than sea. Around 5 times more to give you a better idea. We don’t recommend this option if you are shipping a lot of items, go for ocean freight instead. However, if time is of the essence this is the fastest one.

Additional Shipping Costs

There are a few additional shipping costs that you need to consider:

  • Custom duties
  • Container inspection fees
  • General Rate Increase
  • Inland delivery charges
  • Quarantine fees
  • Insurance

When shipping a container, insurance is almost always required. While shipping is safer than ever before, it is still a lengthy and complicated process. You'll want to make sure you're covered in case something bad happens. Fortunately, your insurance rates will be determined by the monetary value of your items rather than their total weight or volume.
