El Salvador Container Shipping Cost

Are you entirely packed and ready to load your goods into a container but can’t determine which container moving service to use? Or are you still undecided on what to bring and what to leave back?

Consider Three Men A Truck as a top priority for this massive job. We aim to accomplish every task to relieve you of the stress that comes with an international relocation. While we handle the moving, you can relax and start organizing your exploration visits around your new home.

What Are The Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping?

There are presiding conditions that have an impact on the budget for your efficient container movement. You can make sound decisions while also cutting back on rates that are already rising due to seasonal fluctuations.

These factors include :

  • The type of container you choose is determined by the weight of your items. Our selection of 20′, 40′, and 40′ cube containers will give you plenty of options for space. Subversive materials, poisons, and log and forest products must all be licensed before being exported, according to the Salvadoran government.
  • The distance between the United States and El Salvador is 1663.48 miles, which is significantly shorter and will have a significant positive impact on the cost of fuel per mile. It is also necessary to give distance-based insurance against potential damage while traveling, which will add to the expense.
  • In the United States, the peak demand seasons are in mid-October and mid-August. Due to the approaching holidays, we will be receiving a high volume of relocation requests, making it difficult to plan for resources. This can add up to a significant amount to your ultimate bill.

What Size Of Container Is According To Your Requirements?

We offer a variety of container types, including flat racked, double-doored, dry, thermal, insulated, refrigerated ISO Containers, and many others, depending on your needs.

The two major categories for ownership are :

  • The ones who require isolation from other packages use Full Container (FCL). Customers who are moving their homes with cars or businesses that are shifting their entire workplaces with many electronic assets might use these. The charges start at $2,580.60 for a 20′ container and go up to $2,800.60 for a 40′ container.
  • Less than a container (LCL) refers to a container with many occupants. You must follow the list we provide, but it is the most cost-effective option. Charges for moving a bedroom weighing 3 850 pounds can range from $57.20 per cubic meter to $3,696.00.

How Long Does It Take for Cargo to Clear Customs in El Salvador?

The reform halved the statutory time to clear goods through customs (from 48 to 24 hours), while taxpayers have four days to pay duties and taxes.  In addition, the reform introduced a 24-hour deadline to conduct non-intrusive inspections.

What Types of Goods Am I NOT Allowed to Ship to El Salvador?

What Kind of Taxes, Duties, and/or Fees Do I Have to Pay When Shipping To El Salvador?

Imports of goods and services in El Salvador are subject to the payment of various taxes, the first of which is Import Tariffs (Derechos Arancelarios a la Importación or DAI in Spanish). The amount owed varies considerably depending on the imported merchandise (from 0% up to 40%). The breakdown of DAI and the corresponding products can be found here.

What’s The Difference Between a Freight Forwarder, a Broker, And An NVOCC?

When shipping your goods to a different country, nothing is more important than ensuring the company you work with is the perfect fit. That’s why we have to tap into the differences between two types of partner companies, such as Freight Forwarders and Non-Vessel Operating Common Carriers (NVOCCs).

The Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) classifies Freight Forwarders and NVOCCs as Ocean Transportation Intermediaries. Because of their identical FMC classification, they are treated the same during most transportation procedures, but there are several differences between the two. One of them being that a freight forwarder does not possess ocean freight containers of their own, while an NVOCC does.

A freight broker is a person who acts as a go-between for a cargo shipping provider and a shipping client.

What Is a Bill of Lading?

A Bill of Lading is a collection of trade products received on board. It establishes a written agreement between a client and a transport company. It makes the transaction binding and legal.

What Happens If I Lose the Bill of Lading?

If a Bill of Lading gets lost, destroyed, or broken, the client won’t obtain a new copy unless the original document was found. You will need to submit several requirements to get another copy, such as a letter from the shipper, count order, letter of indemnity, bank guarantee, and a commercial invoice and packing list.

How Important Is It to Get Insurance for My Cargo?

In case of an emergency during the shipping process, such as losing your container, you must be prepared beforehand to prevent yourself from stressing out once this type of event happens.

What is cargo insurance anyway? Cargo insurance protects your container’s value and ensures its safety from physical damage.

Why avail cargo insurance? By deciding to spend a small fraction of your items’ value, you’re protecting your rights for when the day the unexpected occurs.

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!
