UK Container Shipping Service
Our main service for shipping to the United Kingdom is through container shipments.
We offer both consolidated and exclusive container services which each have their own benefits.
With consolidated container shipping to the UK, a container loads with goods from multiple people. In regards to cars, 2-4 are loaded depending on size. For household goods, the containers need loads of varying sizes until it’s full. This type of shipment is the most popular as it offers the best value with the protection of a container. The tradeoff is the time to ship takes a bit longer as the container has to be filled by multiple customers.
We also offer exclusive use of 20 and 40 foot containers to the UK. This service’s benefit is there is no wait time to ship once we have your goods and documentation. When using this service the overall shipping time will be faster. The tradeoff is that the cost is higher because they are not split with other people shipping.
