Cost Of Shipping A Container To Trinidad And Tobago

How Much Does It Cost of Shipping A Container To Trinidad and Tobago?

Trinidad and Tobago Container Shipping Cost

Trinidad and Tobago, recognized to have the wealthiest economy in the Caribbean, is a twin-island that is located off the Venezuela coast. Moving to Trinidad and Tobago can be pretty challenging due to several factors. However, do not be deterred because we're here for you. At Three Movers, we aren't limited to just moving your stuff from an old home to a new one. We are also involved in the activities of freight shipping services and shipping goods to all parts of the world.

We can also help you with consultancy to ensure that you do not make shortsighted decisions as regards your shipping.

Challenges You Might Face in the Process of Shipping and How We Can Help

Damages or Mishandling of Items

Some of the steps in the distribution channels that your goods must go through can be quite tough. However, thanks to Three Movers' innovative packing, the likelihood of shipping mishaps is minimized. This is because your items will be handled carefully by our trained staff.

Little or No Knowledge of International Shipping

Another challenge that you might face in the process of shipping to Trinidad and Tobago is having little or no knowledge of international shipping. Shipping items overseas have a lot more paperwork than shipping locally. However, we will teach you what you need to know about shipping, how to file the paperwork, and also help you to track your new shipments every step of the way.

Lost Items

Some shipping companies do not keep items entrusted in their care safe. As a result, there are so many reported cases of lost items. However, at Three Movers, we ensure that we monitor your shipment through the journey to avoid losing any item.


The problem of security is a really important one. During shipping, your goods can go through five or six pairs of hands. As a result, security becomes a real issue that has to be attended to. Three Movers offers great services in ensuring all your goods are secure and in good positions.

Sizes of Shipping Containers That Benefit Your Shipping Purposes

There are two most common types of shipping containers. They are 20ft and 40ft containers. The size of your shipping container will depend on the size of what you want to ship.

Although there are other shipping containers, most shipping companies would only accept the standard sizes of 20ft and 40ft. This is because smaller sizes of shipping containers are not easy to stack up. However, the bigger ones are easily stacked up. In cases where your items are relatively small, you can share a standard-sized container with another person who also has small items to ship. This would enable you to ship your goods by sea.

Factors That Determine or Influence Shipping Costs

Dimensional Weight

This is also known as package dimensions. This pricing technique focuses on the size and dimensions of the items you want to ship to determine the final shipping costs.

Package Weight

For this, the cost of shipping is determined by the weight of the items. In most cases, if the package weight weighs more than the dimensional weight, then the package weight would be used for the shipping cost.

Target Destination

The farther the target destination is, the higher the cost of shipping will be.

Customs Duty

When you are shipping across borders of different countries, you must take into consideration country-specific fees.
