How Much Does It Cost Of Shipping A Container To Georgia?

Georgia Container Shipping Cost

Moving your stuff to Georgian ports in a container requires you to have meticulous planning beforehand. From the size of the container to a reliable insurance partner, there are multiple choices you must make carefully to avoid an unpleasant experience in shipping your container. Three Movers has completed thousands of shipping assignments to Eastern Europe, especially in Georgia, and they should be your first call to move your container overseas. Check out the various aspects of container shipping below.

Factors that affect the cost of shipping

The known factors involved in calculating the shipping cost are the weight or volume of the items, the choice of transportation, and the total distance covered by the ship or the airplane. However, there are also two other factors involved that significantly affect the shipping prices of a container.

  • The time of the year – The international shipping industry has a peak season that occurs every year in January, February, August, and September. During this time, the prices of shipping services are considerably high, and you should avoid shipping your container to Georgia in these months if possible.
  • The destination port – Georgian ports like Batumi, Poti, Kulevi, and Suspa have access to the Black Sea and are well-connected to the international shipping routes. You can also ship your container to either of these two major airports of the country – Tbilisi, and Kutaisi.

Which size of shipping container works best for me?

The most popular furniture moving shipping container lengths are 20 feet and 40 feet. The 20-foot containers are large enough to store furniture for a three-bedroom home. The 40 foot containers, on the other hand, provide excellent value for money and can hold enough belongings to fill four bedrooms and more. Shipping vehicles such as cars and small trucks need a 40-foot container.

On a different note, if you have only a couple of boxes, you can rent a part of a single container, sharing the space with up to two more people. This arrangement is called Less Than Container Load (LCL).

Understanding the different types of freight transportation

The two types of freight transportation mediums are air shipping and sea shipping. While the air freighting options are more popular and fast, they are almost five times costlier than ocean freight. It is also not a cleaner option as the ships release the lowest carbon emissions compared to any other mode of transport in the world. However, if the shipment is urgent, we suggest you choose the air freight as it will move your container to Georgia within one to three days from anywhere in the world.

Additional Shipping Costs

There are some additional shipping costs that you may have to incur while transporting your container to Georgia:

  • Custom duties and taxes
  • Container inspection fees
  • General Rate Increase
  • Inland delivery charges
  • Quarantine fees
  • Insurance for the container and goods inside

Most companies give the renters a port-to-port rate, and they wind up with multiple logistics to resolve and get their stuff delivered to its original destination. While choosing a moving service, verify that they are offering you the door-to-door delivery rate to avoid additional inland delivery charges.

Insuring your container and its content is an important decision to make. Due to the complexity of international shipping, you’ll want to make sure you are covered in case of an emergency. The insurance rates are based on the monetary value of your items.
