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
