Choosing a sole use container to ship your household goods to Canada has several benefits:
Space: A sole use container offers a very large amount of space depending on the size of the container, and these containers can be packed and loaded directly from your home. A three-bedroom house will normally fit into a 20ft container, and a four or five-bedroom house move should fit into a 40ft container.
Speed: Unlike sharing a container with others, once your container is loaded, it will go directly to the port for immediate shipping on the first available vessel.
Security: Once your items are packed and loaded, the container is sealed and remains this way until it reaches the port where, after an initial inspection, the entire container can be delivered to you without its contents being handled by other individual customers. This is your container, so you have the added privacy of not sharing with others.
Shipping your household goods in a shared container, often referred to as a "groupage" service, also has a number of advantages:
Cost effective: One of the biggest advantages of shared shipping is the cost. As you are only paying for the space your belongings occupy within the container, it's typically much cheaper than using a sole-use container, making it an excellent choice for smaller shipments or for those on a tight budget.
Ideal for Smaller Moves: If you're not moving a whole house worth of belongings, shared shipping is ideal. You won't be left with wasted space in a container, as you would with a sole-use service.
