Cost Of Shipping A Container To France

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

France Container Shipping Cost

Several factors influence the cost of transporting a container to France. There are obvious things to consider, such as the distance to go and the amount of your cargo, but there are also other things to think about. Three Movers can assist you with this difficult task, and you will be glad you chose us. We can assist you in understanding all of the aspects that go into these projects so that you can make an informed decision. France is one of the nations to which we transport containers and requesting a quote is the first step in determining the cost of this procedure. However, there are a few factors you need to know to better comprehend the price.

Factors That Affects The Cost Of Shipping

Of all factors affecting the cost of shipping a container, five factors are considered the most important. The distance to be traveled, the weight or volume of your goods, the mode of transportation, the destination port's fees, and the time of year are all factors to consider.

  • The distance to be traveled: A quick trip across the Mediterranean will cost you more than shipping your belongings halfway around the world. Whether you're moving from port to port or door to door will also affect the cost of your move.
  • The weight or volume of your goods: it's not technically one or the other because it depends on the type of delivery you choose. In sea freight, the dimensions of your items are most important, whereas in air freight, the weight of your goods is more vital. The more items you have, the more it will cost to ship them to your new residence.
  • The mode of transportation: Will your cargo be flown or shipped? The mode of transportation affects the price as well as the time it takes for your belongings to arrive. Air freight is usually faster and more expensive than sea freight, so if you have the time, go with the sea. When compared to air freight, sea freight is frequently five times cheaper.
  • The destination port's fees: Every country has to charge customs taxes and service fees. They do, however, vary per country. An import tax of 20% of the entire value of your item is charged on shipments to France as at 2020.
  • The time of the year: Peak seasons exist in international shipping, just as they do in every other industry. Because demand is higher during the peak season, delivery prices are usually higher.

Which Size Of Shipping A Container Works Best For Me?

The 20ft and 40ft shipping containers are the only two types of shipping containers to be aware of. This is the case since the rest (of which there are many) are largely for corporate or industrial moves.

A 20-foot container can usually hold three bedrooms' worth of belongings, whereas a 40-foot container can hold twice as much. A 40-foot container is a better value for money if you have a lot of goods to transport.

FCL And LCL shipment

If the volume of items you want to carry is little, you may not need to pay for the full container. For those who only have a little amount of cargo, Three Movers has created a mechanism that allows numerous clients to share the space of a single container for people with modest amounts of cargo. This is known as an LCL (Less Than Container Load) or part-load shipment.

The contents of a one-bedroom flat may usually be moved in an LCL, but amounts greater than that will almost always require the use of a full container. This is known as an FCL (Full Container Load) or sole-use shipment.

Additional Shipping Costs

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