Shipping a container to Mauritania would cost a lot of money.

To get your money’s worth, make sure that you get assistance from a reliable moving company.

But how much does it cost to move a container overseas? Let’s take a look.

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

Various factors influence the cost of moving a full container to another country. But more often than not, the total cost depends on your cargo, end destination, and mode of transportation. To give you an idea about it, here’s how each factor affects the shipping cost.

  • Cargo – the moving firm will measure and weigh your cargo. If it exceeds the allowed measurements for transportation, you will pay higher than the average cost.
  • Final destination – Your shipping rate will be calculated through the distance traveled by your cargo. If it will have a long-distance trip, then you would pay a higher shipping fee.
  • Mode of transportation – Each type of transportation charges a different amount of shipping fee. Air freight has the highest shipping rate, while land freight is the cheapest option.

In addition to that, the time when you would ship your cargo can affect the total cost of shipping a container to Mauritania. If you move it during the peak season, usually from May to October, there could be delays and an increase in the shipping rates. The ports in Mauritania could be busy during those months because of the arriving and departing tourists.

Though not as significant as the ones above, the following can also affect the overall shipping cost:

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

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

The best option for residential and commercial shipment is a 20ft or 40ft container.

The 20ft container can store the contents of a two-bedroom apartment. But if you need to move more than that, the 40ft containers are the best option.

When shipping your stuff, it’s not necessary to pay for the entire container. You can choose between FCL (Full Container Load) or LCL (Less Than Container Load) shipment.

In LCL, you have to share the storage space of a container with other people. Meanwhile, in FCL, you would have to pay for an entire container to move your belongings. This method is faster and safer because the container will only carry your items.

Different Types of Freight Transportation

You can ship your container through land, air, or sea. However, you can only use air and ocean freight if you are moving a container to Mauritania from the United States.

Sea freight is a cost-effective option. Your shipping rate will depend on the dimension of your cargo. However, it would take days or weeks before your container arrives at its end destination.

If you can’t wait that long for your shipping boxes, pick air freight. It would only take a day before your cargo arrives at its destination. However, expect to pay a high shipping fee, especially if you are moving heavy items. Air freight calculates your shipping cost based on the weight of your cargo.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which Documents Are Necessary When Shipping to Mauritania?

The documents generally required from Mauritanian importers include the commercial invoice, the bill of lading or certificate of origin, and the certificate of inspection given by the Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS). The commercial invoice should contain the name and address of the buyer and seller, the place and date the invoice was prepared, the method of shipment, the quantity, description, and price of the goods, and delivery and payment terms. Large payments are usually made by irrevocable and confirmed letters of credit or by direct bank transfer. Cash payments are also frequently used for smaller purchases. Importers require pre-shipment inspection and quality control. The certificate of review should accompany imported goods.

What Types of Goods Am I NOT Allowed to Ship to Mauritania?

Under Islamic strictures, Mauritanians are prohibited from importing alcoholic drinks, pork, and sexually explicit material. Some international companies operating in Mauritania have received government permission to consume alcohol by their expatriate staff. Import of firearms requires special licenses.

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

Despite relatively high tariffs, import demand is growing. Import duties are generally calculated according to the goods’ original invoice price (CIF value). When the buyer does not present the original invoice, the Customs Service evaluates the local market value of the product and applies the appropriate rate. Customs officials use an unpublished list showing import taxes and duties for various items.

Tariffs vary according to the importance attributed to the particular commodity (between zero and 35%, for instance, for “essential” goods). Foreign investors frequently complain of corruption and complexity in customs procedures.

What Happens If I Lose the Bill of Lading?

You wouldn’t obtain a new copy unless the original document was found. You will be mandated to submit several requirements to get another copy, such as:

• A letter from the shipper
• Count order
• Letter of indemnity
• Bank guarantee
• A commercial invoice and packing list.

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

Before shipping a container to Mauritania, you must study the difference between tariffs, taxes, and duties.

● You’ll incur duty fees every time you import a product into a country. 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.

● The standard percentage is the basis of import taxes and the additional cost added to any imported product entering the country. Depending on the country, this 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.

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

When shipping your container to Mauritania, nothing is more important than ensuring the company you connect 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. They are considered the same during most transportation procedures due to their identical FMC classification, but there are several differences between the two. In the areas of multimodal transport and international maritime, these differences are especially apparent.

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

You may be planning to bring specific items to Mauritania before you travel, and you can’t wait to use everything. But before starting to pack everything you want to be shipped, you must consider the container’s space. The worst thing you can experience is getting your items removed right before you send your container just because you didn’t do your homework on specific site requirements!

A 20-foot storage container usually requires about 75 feet of straight clearance. A 40-foot storage container will need about 100 feet of straight clearance. For most containers, you need a minimum of 12 feet of width clearance and 20 feet of overhead clearance.

Do I Need to Be Present When My Container Is Delivered?

You will be reminded to be present during the shipping day, even before the container gets delivered to your place.

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!
