Moving by sea

There are 3 main sizes of shipping containers you can consider.

  • 20 foot which holds approximately 33 cubic meters (average 2 bedroom house)
  • 40 feet which holds approximately 67 cubic meters (average house with 3-4 bedrooms)
  • 40 feet HQ which holds 76 cubic meters (average house with 4-5 bedrooms)

There are a number of options for the use of containers when moving personal effects by sea.

  • FCL - Full Container Load: If you require a full container load, you will use the FCL method which allows you to ship your goods directly in your own dedicated container. This method is generally advisable when you have a volume greater than 15 cubic meters.
  • LCL - Less than Container Load: Allows you to share the cost of a container with others moving personal effects to the same destination in a high volume area. This method is generally advisable when you have a volume of less than 15 cubic metres.


Moving by air

Air freight is by far the fastest method of sending your belongings overseas, typically taking 7 to 10 days on a door-to-door move basis. Keep in mind, however, that it is a method of transportation that has a certain cost when you have a large shipment. As a guideline, as soon as your cargo is over 1.5 / 2 cubic meters, ocean freight will be cheaper, and below that, air freight will be cheaper but also much faster.

Moving some items by air freight is ideal, especially if you need them immediately at your destination, allowing the rest of your items to be sent by sea.

Airlines charge on the basis of the greater of gross weight (on the scale) or volumetric weight (which is 167 kg per cubic metre).
