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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Documents Do You Need When Shipping to Comoros?

If you are planning to ship any product to Comoros, some documents must be made available to the shipping service of Three Movers.

These documents include the Bill of Lading, customs declaration, a commercial invoice or packing list, and the certificate of origin. They are required for submission at the customs department of Comoros.

What Happens If I Lose My Bill Of Lading?

The Bill of Lading is a very important document containing the details of a shipment and its destination, so you can understand why it is very important when shipping. However, there are some steps you should take if it goes missing.

Unique conditions like a destroyed or stolen bill of lading do not suffice as a good enough reason for a missing BOL. To get a new one, you must first recover the original BOL.

If you lose your BOL, a letter from the shipper containing reasons for the lost BOL, and a letter of indemnity to the transporter will be required. Finally, a bank guarantee along with a commercial invoice and packing list should be made available by the shipper.

Can I Ship Any Product to Comoros?

While there are a variety of goods that you can ship to Comoros, certain prohibited or restricted items are not allowed. This is because they are considered unsafe, hazardous, and/or against shipping regulations. They include non-preserved drugs, corrosives, films, and many others.

Restricted items require special licenses or permits to enter the country. These items include weapons, poisons, knives, and military equipment.

Are Shipping Taxes And Shipping Duties Different?

The terms ‘taxes’ and ‘duties’ are easily mixed up because they are both fees that are paid on shipments. However, they are not the same.

Shipping duties are a type of fee that you pay when your goods are entering or leaving a country. It is a fee that is paid on cross-border goods, to the customs of that country for government revenue. They are mostly paid by the importer while export duties are paid by the exporter.

While shipping duties are charged by customs based on the value of goods being, shipping taxes are consistent charges placed on almost all purchases by the government.

How Much Weight Can a Shipping Container Hold?

When you want to ship your goods, you must know how much weight a shipping container can hold. With this information, you can choose the right shipping container.

Containers come in different sizes, with the most common sizes being the 20ft and the 40ft container. In terms of volume, the 20ft container holds 33m³, whereas the 40ft can hold 66m³. However, the weight limit is of more importance.

The maximum weight capacity of a 20ft container is approximately 23,000kg and can hold up to 50-60 fridges or 100 washing machines.

A 40ft container can safely hold 26,000kg. It can hold approximately 58 dining chairs or 67 computer desks.

Do I Need Insurance for My Shipments?

Although getting insurance for your goods is not compulsory, its necessity is undeniable. This is because of the possibility of damage to your shipments during transportation or other unforeseen circumstances. Protecting your goods will prevent possible losses that may arise.

Apart from the damage that may occur during shipping, there is an additional possibility of theft, accidents, or other disasters. So, you must have all your goods insured.

Which Is Delivered Faster – LCL or FCL Shipments?

LCL (Less Than Container Load) is when a particular container is used for shipping products belonging to different shippers. The FCL(Full Container Load) varies primarily from the LCL because it is utilized by a single shipper for their cargo.

Due to the various processes that LCL shipments go through, they are usually slower than FCL shipments. This delay is primarily due to the amount of time spent in processing the loading and unloading of goods belonging to different shippers. So, if you want your goods delivered faster, you should consider the FCL, although you would have to pay more for shipping.

Can I Track A Container In Transit?

If you have a shipment in transit, tracking it is very easy. With the aid of a container tracking system, you can get access to information regarding the location of your sea cargo, as well as the port details. This can be done at any time. However, you will need to provide some information. The information required includes the container number, Bill of Lading, booking number, and the shipping line. You can use any of these three requirements along with the shipping line to track your container and see where it is.

There are two major container tracking systems. They are the standard container tracking system and the GPS container tracking system.

Customer Reviews

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the great help with our move. We have so much stuff and I was really worried about being able to take the time off work to pack and get everything moved and unpacked. Three Movers saved the day! Your men showed up and had our house and garage packed fast and even put everything in the precise room at the new house. You saved me a great deal of time and saved my family a lot of money! Thanks so much!
