Cost Of Shipping A Container To Guatemala | Three Movers

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

Guatemala Container Shipping Cost

It's hard to ship a container to a different country like Guatemala. Aside from the laborious procedure of loading and unloading, you also need to arrange its transportation process.

Unless you have a ship and heavy equipment, chances are you'll have to pay someone to assist you with moving your shipping container. Three Movers offers quality logistic services. We can take care of the entire process, from packing to unloading your stuff to the new location.

But how much does it cost to ship a container to Guatemala?

How much does it cost to ship a container to Guatemala?

If you're moving a container to Guatemala, you need to consider factors such as the weight of your items, transport mode, distance, and season.

Those factors will affect the overall cost of shipping. For example, bigger and heavier shipments might cost much more to transport abroad than lighter items. Shipping companies will charge you depending on the size and weight of your equipment.

If you’re going to move your cargo internationally by land or sea, the shipping cost will depend on the size of your product. Meanwhile, in air freight, the size is the main factor that determines the shipping fee.

Aside from that, another factor to look for in shipping cargo in Guatemala is the season.

Guatemala is receiving a large amount of traffic from December through March. During these months, there's a high chance that moving rates will be higher than usual because the demand is getting higher than the capacity.

Though not as significant as the first four factors above, the following can also affect the shipping rate:

  • Insurance
  • Packing
  • Taxes and Custom fees
  • Inspections
  • General Rate Increase
  • Storage

From that list, insurance is one factor that you should seriously consider. While international shipping is safer than ever for your goods, you don’t want to discover what happens in the event of a problem, and who is liable for damages without insurance. It’s best to be covered.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

The size of the container depends on the amount of your stuff you're going to move.

If you have a lot of things to transfer, then a 40ft container would be enough. It has 285 sq ft (26.47m2) of floor space and 2,120 cubic ft (60m3) of volume. In other words, it can hold around 60 fridges.

In case the 40ft is too big, you can choose a 20ft container. It's big enough to hold everything you need for a two-bed flat.

Furthermore, you have the option of not paying for the entire container. This shipping method is called LCL or less capacity load. You will share the space with another individual or business.

But if you don't want to wait for others to fill in the space, you can pick FCL or full container load instead. In this shipping method, you will pay for the entire container, and the shipping company could move it even if it's not full.

Different Types of Freight Transportation

Guatemala isn't that far from the United States, but you can still pick either of the three shipping transportation methods.

You can move your cargo by land, air, or sea freight. The best option depends on your plan and budget.

You can move your container through land freight. It's fast and not that expensive. Your cargo will arrive at its destination in just a matter of days. Ocean freight is also a cost-effective option, but it can take a little longer.
