Options for Shipping Household Goods to Europe

  • Shared Container Service 
  • Exclusive Use Container
  • Air Freight Service

Shared Container Moves to Europe

A majority of people moving to the EU and Europe as a whole elect to move via shared container. This service shares the space in a container meaning the cost to move to the Europe is only based on the amount of space you use. Also as one of our most popular, containers are filled multiple times a month, meaning quick sailings.

Exclusive Container Moves to Europe

In the case you have enough goods to fill a whole container, we also offer exclusive 20 and 40 foot containers. When using this service to move to Europe, there is a higher degree of control.  When you absolutely need your goods to leave as soon as possible, shipping your own container will skip the consolidation period. Though if you don’t have enough to fill a container it may be worth it to consider a shared container as European household goods consolidations leave often.

Air Freight Moving to Europe

When moving to Europe, we also offer air freight service. Generally this service is more expensive and only used when you must move goods very quickly. Air freight to Europe is mostly used for display and high value items such as car races, art, antiques, instruments, etc. Here the only concern is the time frame with cost secondary.
