Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

It can get pretty overwhelming to plan for your container’s shipping voyage and its size will also add to your stress if you don’t have the right people to guide you throughout the process. That’s why Three Movers is here to make your journey smoother.

Most of our customers choose between 20-foot or 40-foot containers. The first option gives you an allowance that is as good as a three-bedroom house’s contents space. While the latter allows you to fit an entire average garage. This means you can ship a vehicle in it.

Other than this, you also have to consider its capacity that’s why we’re sharing with you the types of load modes. A full-size container goes along with the Full Container Load (FCL shipment) option. If you don’t have enough items to fit this option, then you can choose the Less Than Container option (LCL shipment) option.

Understanding The Different Types Of Freight Transportation

You can choose between air and sea transport for your container. Whilst you can save money and time with ocean freight transportation you may not be able to meet a deadline if you set one. In case you do not this is your best bet. The container can be delivered much more quickly and safely via air freight but the price can increase by as much as five times the rate of the alternative.
