For the actual shipping of household goods to Argentina, we over a variety of services to fit your move. Whether you prioritize speed or value, we can guide you on the appropriate service to choose.
Consolidated Container Service
A consolidated move to Argentina is when your goods ship alongside other customers in the same container. This service offers the best value as you only pay for the space you use in the container. On the other hand, consolidations add time to the overall move so you may use another service if speed is what matters. This is because the container cannot ship until full, so you may be the first in the container to Argentina or the last one before it’s ready to ship.
Full Container Service
As opposed to consolidations, full container service is when you ship your own personal container. We offer both 20 and 40 foot containers that hold around 1000 and 2000 cubic feet respectively. If you are close to those amounts, a full container is definitely the right choice. The price is efficient, while also not having to wait for anyone else to ship.
Air freight moving is the fastest possible way to ship. Your items are loaded onto a plane and are flown right to the nearest airport to the destination. With this your international move can be finished as fast as one to two weeks. This is generally only used if cost is no issue as it is the most expensive option.
How Long Does Shipping To Argentina Take
There are also variables that affect the overall amount of time your move will take. Generally a shipment takes about 8-10 weeks once the goods are on the water. This does not account for shipping situations like consolidation time if you choose that service. The actual time to move the goods to your door in Argentina has many factors involved that it is best to wait and see the ETA given once your boat sails.
