Opting to ship your personal possessions to the USA in a sole use container has numerous advantages:
Space: A sole use container grants you a significant amount of space. These containers can be loaded and sealed right at your doorstep. You'll find that a three-bedroom home typically fits into a 20ft container, while a larger home with four or five bedrooms would require a 40ft container.
Speed:When you opt for a sole use container, there's no waiting around. As soon as your container is packed and sealed, it's whisked off to the port for the next available departure.
Security:The moment your goods are packed and the container is sealed, it remains untouched until it arrives at the destination port. The fact that this container is exclusively yours eliminates the worry of sharing space with strangers.
The "groupage" service is where you share container space with other individuals or exporters and it has its own set of attractive benefits:
Cost effective: The cost factor is a massive plus in shared shipping. Since you only pay for the space your goods take up in the container, it's a budget-friendly option, especially for smaller shipments or if you are money-conscious.
Ideal for Smaller Moves: Groupage is perfect when you don't have a lot of personal effects for shipping. There's no need to worry about paying for unused space in a container.
Secure Professional Packing: With 1st Move's groupage service, your goods are professionally packed, protected, and palletised. This not only ensures the best use of space but also provides your items with the highest level of protection during their journey. Moreover, this approach allows us to provide you with accurate and transparent billing.
