WHAT CONTAINER DO I NEED?

When shipping overseas, the most cost effective way to ship is by sea.  It takes longer but the ship can carry heavy loads, and it's more economical than air.  You have a variety of different ways to ship which will affect both storage prices as well as marine insurance, but one way or another your items will be packed in a container.  

There are different types of containers in which your goods are shipped.  Custom crating is not the same as a container.  You might need custom crates to keep some of your more fragile or expensive items safe, and these are all shipped in your container.

So what is a container?  You can pick between two choices: an FCL and an LCL.

An FCL stands for a Full Container Load. You get your own, exclusive container and needless to say they are pretty large. Most of the time, you can usually fit a three bedroom house into a full container. A full container can affect your shipping time frames - usually for the better, and customs can be affected too.

An LCL stands for Less than a Container Load. This means that you don't have enough to fill a container, and you share the space with other customers. It's extremely useful if you are shipping a few items or less than full container, as you'll spend a lot less money than shipping by air. Both of these are perfect options. It simply depends on your needs.
