Cost Of Shipping A Container To Dominican Republic

Cost Of Shipping A Container To Dominican Republic

How Much Does It Cost To Ship A Container To Dominican Republic?

Dominican Republic Container Shipping Cost

What should I be aware of before considering using container relocation services? Is it possible for me to load the containers onto the truck while I pack up everything by myself?

When deciding to relocate to the Dominican Republic, you could be tormented by these concerns. Our company, Three Men A Truck, will satisfy what should be your primary concern: Working with a company that can handle all of the responsibilities at once.

What Are The Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping?

Before a final bill can be offered to you, your containers must pass through several checks. Some of these are :

  • The package's weight will determine the container you have to choose from 20', 40', or 40' high cube containers. To avoid issues during the inspection procedure, your luggage should not exceed the limit weight of 67,200 lbs.
  • The distance between the United States and the Dominican Republic is 1998.44 miles, which is quite short in comparison to other far-off places. Depending on the amount of fuel per mile, the average shipping expenses could range from $1,117 to $2,694.
  • Peak season in the United States is from mid-August to mid-October, and this will have a significant impact on the base pricing. Due to a lack of resources, we are forced to schedule among the already high demand, increasing charges.

What Size Of Container Fits Best For You?

There are two types of container load styles that you can choose from:

  • Full Container Loads (FCL) are owned by a single party. These are favored by those who are relocating their entire home, including vehicles or offices, as well as a variety of digital assets.
  • Less Than A Container Load (LCL) arrives with an inventory list that must be followed as the packages are sent in a single container with other parties. You can save on costs by selecting this one, but be aware that you’ll be sharing the space.

Dry, thermal, refrigerated ISO, double-doored, and other types of containers are available, depending on your needs.

What Are The Types of Transport For Relocating Containers?

For your container going to the Dominican Republic, our company offers air and sea freight options.

With a minimum weight capacity of 250 pounds, our cargo airplanes will take up to 6 days to reach your destination, depending on the container you choose. Air freight costs around 5 times more than sea freight, so you should only choose this option if the price isn’t a concern, or time is of the essence.

Shipping by sea will take the same amount of time as flights from the United States. They can, however, hold up to 45,000 pounds, making them more weight tolerant. An FCL container might cost as little as $1,881.00, to begin with.

What Other Costs Can Add Up to Your Shipping?

The prices are extremely variable and are based on international taxation and verification fees. To avoid misdirection from our side to yours, we are very transparent with everything that is involved in the cost calculations.

The following are some of the general components:

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

We can supply you with an estimate that is tailored to your needs if you fill out our customer service form and indicate your destination in the Dominican Republic and the tentative date.
