Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Container Shipping Cost

However, Three Movers is an international shipping company that is willing to help you ship items in your container to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines at the most competitive international shipping rates.

This guide will explain all the factors that affect shipping a container to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

Here are the factors that affect the cost of shipping a container:

The Volume/Weight of the Goods

Air cargo freight deals mostly with the weight of the goods while sea freight deals with the dimension of the goods. Hence, the volume or weight of your goods will determine the shipping means to use for cost effective shipments.

Type of Transport

The mode of transporting your goods determines the time and cost for it to get to its destination.

The Distance of the Journey

A shipment over a long distance is more expensive than a short-distance shipment. While express shipments for household items with either door to door delivery service or distribution center is the most expensive.

The Destination Port

Customs tariffs and service costs (which are compulsory) differ amongst countries. Saint Vincent and the Grenadines have a standard VAT rate of 15% for imported products.

The Time of the Year

December to April is the peak season for moving into Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. However, the most ideal period for shipping is from May to June.

Which Size of Shipping Container Will Work Best for Me?

The two major types of containers relating to shipping are the 20ft and 40ft containers.

How Big is a 20ft Container?

A 20ft container is synonymous with the size of a single garage. It can contain the belongings of a three-bedroom home packed in our shipping boxes.

How Big is a 40ft Container?

A 40ft container gives you double the space of a 20ft container with little addition in price. It is best for someone with large goods to move.

The Difference Between FCL and LCL

A system is created by us for customers with small cargo volumes to share a container. This system is called "Less Than Container Load" (LCL) and it is only ideal for customers with the contents of a one-bedroom apartment.

If your belongings exceed that of a one-bedroom apartment, you will be needing an entire container for your move. A "Full Container Loads" (FCL) is the term for it.
