Shipping Household Goods to Argentina
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 inside. On the other hand, consolidations add time to the overall move so you may use another service if speed is what matters.
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 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 you also do not have 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.
Transit Time for Shipments to Argentina
There are also variables that affect the overall amount of time your move will take. Generally a shipment can take about 6-10 weeks. This does not account for things like consolidation time if you choose to ship that way. The actual time to move the goods to your door in Argentina has so many factors involved that you should wait to see the ETA once the boat sails.
As international movers, we do everything that we can to deliver as soon as possible but these should serve as a guide as they are estimates and transit can change.
