Cost of Shipping a Container to Peru

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

Peru Container Shipping Cost

Shipping a container to another country, like Peru, costs around $2000 to $3000. There's no way to tell the exact amount that you need to pay because the shipping process is no easy task. A lot of factors are involved in calculating your overall shipping fee, like the shipping services you acquired for your international shipments.

The cost of shipping services also varies depending on the moving company.

Three Movers is an international freight shipping company, that ensures you'll get quality logistic services without worrying about the cost. We could ship your container anywhere in the world without complications.

But how much does it cost to ship a container to Peru using our services? To answer that question, we should first talk about the factors that affect the overall cost.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

There are many factors that could affect international shipping costs. For instance, the moving companies are calculating your rate based on these factors:

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

But aside from those, your shipping cost mainly depends on the properties of your cargo shipping, destination, and your chosen mode of transportation, you can get an estimate cost for your shipping goods with our online freight calculator. To give you an idea, here's how they affect your shipping expense:

  • Cargo type: Your stuff will be measured and weighed by the moving company. You will pay more than the average cost if it exceeds the allowed measures for transportation.
  • Destination: Your shipping charge heavily affects the shipping charge. Usually, you'll have to pay a higher delivery cost if your container would have a long-distance trip.
  • Mode of transportation: The cost of shipping varies depending on the mode of transit. The most expensive type of transport is air freight, whereas land freight is the most economical.

In addition to that, shipping your cargo during the peak season in Peru would also increase your expected shipping cost. With that said, it’s best to avoid shipping a container during the months of May to September.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

A 20-foot or 40-foot container is the best option. These containers are suitable for transferring both residential and business items.

A three-bedroom house can be packed inside a 20-foot container. All of your stuff in your garage, living room, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom would be included.

The 40ft container, on the other hand, would double that storage space. To give you a better picture, it can contain 20 ordinary pallets or 800 flat-screen TVs.

If you don't have enough items to fill an entire container, you can ship your cargo through LCL (Less Than Container Load) shipment. In this type of shipment, you will share the cargo space and cost of using the container.

The LCL can sometimes be complicated, so if you want to avoid problems associated with it, choose FCL (Full Container Load). If you pick this, you will pay for the entire container, and the moving company will ship it even if it's not full.

Different Types of Freight Transportation

Moving companies use air, land, and sea freight to transfer containers to different places.

You can choose either of these options. It's possible to reach Peru by land if you're shipping from the United States.

However, land and sea freight are slower modes of transportation. It could take days or weeks before your container arrives in Peru.

If you want to move your container fast, choose air freight. It would only take a day before your container arrives at its destination. In case you chose this option, expect to spend more because your shipping fee is calculated based on the weight of your cargo.
