- Household goods from a typical furnished three room apartment will usually fit in a 20 ft container.
- There is also adequate room for a small or midsize car and about 15 cubic meters of household goods if the space above the car is used by making a rack.
- A 20 ft container is economic, however, if it is loaded with about 10 or more cubic meters of household goods.
- For volumes up to 10 m³: see below lcl shipment or airfreight
We ship in overseas crates up to approximately 10 cubic meters.
The minimum volume is 1 cubic meter.
Our crates are custom-built.
In our opinion liftvans are less suitable because of their standardized measurements.
Furthermore, they are heavy and thus difficult to handle when fully loaded.
The costs for lcl shipments depend essentially on the volume.
For smaller consignments, a few cubic meters or less, airfreight can be an appropriate alternative.
Both shipments - lcl and fcl - require special overseas packing.
The following packaging materials are preferably used:
Double folded and laminated bubble paper, furniture pads, corrugated cardboard in all sizes; additionally wardrobes and special boxes for bicycles, chairs, etc.
Small items can be placed in normal removal boxes just as in local moves.
