Cargo such as cars and household goods can also be shipped inside specially built steel containers. These container are built to withstand the elements during transit. This protect you cargo against salty water,winds, scratches & dents.
The Most common containers are 20 foot container and 40 foot containers. The 20 ft container can carry one vehicle as wells as a few boxes of personal effects. The 40 foot container can carry two or three cars, or the contents of a 2 bedroom house.
We can usually deliver the container to your home address,office or even warehouse so that you can load the goods yourself. You will have three hours in order to do the loading then we will transport it back to the port for export. If you go over the allocated 3 hour loading time, an extra hourly charge may apply.
