How Much Does it Cost to Ship a Container to the USA?

Shipping your goods to the USA and trying to figure out just how much it will cost? We've put together a simple list of guide prices for container shipping costs from the UK to the USA.

Important information about these container shipping costs. The shipping prices below are to be considered as a guide only. These are the container shipping costs only and do not include variable costs for collection from your residence which can change depending on where you live. They also do not include costs for onward transport from the destination port to your new home in America which can change depending on where you are moving to. Finally, they do not include packing and loading costs which can change depending on how much you have.

Below we have seperated the container shipping costs by 20ft and 40ft container. To get an idea of how much stuff you can fit in these sizes; you can roughly fit up to a 3 bedroom house in a 20ft container, and up to a 4 or 5 bedroom house in a 40ft container. The costs below do not include packing, customs fees, insurance, pickup or onward delivery so as a rough estimate for container shipping from Bristol to the south of Florida you should budget another £1800 or so for the additional extras.
