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

Luxembourg Container Shipping Cost

When it comes to international shipping, there are many stumbling blocks, especially if you don’t know what you’re doing. Each country has its unique procedure. However, you don’t have to lose sleep over this because Three Movers international movers and shipping company is here to make everything simple for you.

We assist in the shipping of containers to nations all over the world, including Luxembourg. To figure out how much this process will cost, you’ll need to get a quote, which is completely free. However, there are a few things that must be understood first.

Factors That Affects the Cost of Shipping

Many issues come into play when shipping a container overseas. However, there are five important things to examine in general. They are as follows:

  • The volume/weight of your cargo
  • Method of transportation
  • The time for delivery/Distance to be covered traveling
  • Compulsory charges at the destination port
  • The season (the time of the year)

Which Size of Shipping Containers Works Best for Me?

20-foot and 40-foot shipping containers are the most common sizes. The 20-foot (suitable for a three-bedroom house) and 40-feet (suitable for a four- to a five-bedroom house). However, the 40-foot container does not cost twice as much as the 20-ft container despite its capacity.

Difference Between FCL and LCL

If you have enough goods to fill a shipping container, the shipping process will be sped up because your items will be loaded quickly into the container. As a result, unlike groupage, you won’t have to wait till it’s full.

However, you should consider groupage (in which you share a container) if you have a small load and aren’t in a hurry. This is the cheapest mode of transportation, but it is also the slowest. This form of partial cargo is referred to as “less than a container load” (LCL). A volume greater than this will, on the other hand, need the use of an entire container. “Full container load” is the term for this (FCL).

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

You may need one or a mix of freight transport options to deliver your shipments to the appropriate destination, depending on your products, suppliers, and trade habits.

The three modes of freight transportation in Luxembourg are air freight, sea freight, and road freight.

Air Freight

The sole commercial airport in Luxembourg is Findel, which is located a few kilometers north of the capital city. Air freight costs are determined by the item’s weight and size. Shipping heavy goods via air are not the most cost-effective option for international movers but it’s the fastest.

Land Freight

Luxembourg’s road connections to the rest of Europe’s freight routes are excellent. As a result, if you’re moving from a local or nearby place, shipping by road may be the best option.

Sea Freight

Shipping by sea is usually less expensive than other means of transportation. It is much slower than shipping by air, especially since most sea freight shipments have to be combined with road freight.

Additional Shipping Cost

Some additional shipping costs you may face include:

  • Insurance
  • Container inspection fees
  • Inland delivery charges
  • Luxembourg customs clearance and duties
  • General rate increase
  • Luxembourg standard value-added tax (which is 17%)

Luxembourg has less stringent customs regulations than some other countries. If you’re just shipping household items, you won’t have to pay customs duties, especially if you’ve had them for at least six months before arriving in the country.

Furthermore, unless an exemption applies, all products sent into Luxembourg, whether by an individual or a company, are subject to import duty and taxes.

What Is a Bill of Lading?

We know that you’ve entered a grocery store at least once in your life, picked up a few items, and headed straight to the cashier area to pay for those goods. The cashier gave you a specific list of your purchased products. That list is similar to the Bill of Lading.

The Bill of Lading is a paper carried by a company, such as a railroad or shipping line, acknowledging receipt of products and representing a valid agreement to transport the goods to a specific destination.

My Container Is Being Delivered to My Home. How Much Space Is Required?

Before scheduling a container delivered to your site, you must consider a few factors. You must know in advance the details about delivery fees, permitting requirements, ground conditions, and clearance space. The worst thing you can experience right after your container arrives is finding out that you don’t have enough space to receive it because you didn’t check up on on-site requirements.

In most cases, you’ll need at least 12 and 20 feet of width and overhead clearance, respectively, for containers. Furthermore, a 20-ft container would need about 75ft of clearance, while a 40-ft one needs about 100ft.

What’s The Difference Between Shipping Taxes and Shipping Duties?

Before shipping a container to Luxembourg, you should first study the difference between tariffs, taxes, and duties.

● Customs duties are incurred every time the client imports a product into Luxembourg. To determine how freely a product can be allowed into the country, the government fixed these fees. Duties will always be there no matter how much they change.

● Tariffs are fees imposed by a government for categories of products at specific times. Like duties, a tariff’s percentage increase is calculated from the product’s import value, and the end-customer receives the fees. Consumer habits are affected by how fast the prices of imported goods change.

● Import Taxes are by the government, the standard percentage is the basis of import taxes by the additional cost added to any imported product entering the country. Depending on the country, it is called Value-Added Tax (VAT) or Goods and Services Tax (GST). In terms of implementation, VAT and GST are indistinguishable, but each is applied to various products based on the country importing into.

Customer Reviews

I want to take a moment to say thank you to the extremely hard working crew that handled my move. I admit I was skeptical of hiring a company to move my household stuff but I was so pleased with the services. These guys packed everything up and had it loaded and delivered in no time at all. Everything was taken care of from start to finish and my wife and I were able to take some much needed time to check out the new town without having to worry about getting things unpacked. Three Movers took care of everything and we really appreciate it!
