Facts about Full Container Shipping Powered By Docstoc
					Full container shipping is a smart container shipping activity which is offered by the
international shipping and freight movers to import and export companies as well as
individual customers who are looking forward to move from one country to another.
As compared to open shipping; container shipping is safe especially when considering
on moving the fragile household items, or exporting and importing goods that are
otherwise quite fragile in nature. It is estimated that every year many thousands of
containers are lost in the sea for some reason or the other, and which therefore calls
for greater concern to secure the goods during the international movement.
International shipping companies 鈥?take care of the containers and also insure them
so as to prevent the customers to suffer from any losses, in case of any eventuality.
The prices of full or less container shipping charged by international shipping
company also includes the insurance costs.

The insurance price of international shipping for full container service and less
container service vary greatly. The prices depend directly on the number of goods that
a container is loaded with, and also the international shipping rates. Containers come
in different sizes, with the most common popular one having 20-foot and 40 foot in
length. Again, the size of container hired by the customer will strictly depend upon the
quantity of goods. For example, if you have 4 bedrooms flat and you are moving to
another country in relation to job, then 20 foot container will be more then sufficient
to hold the entire household items. If you are having a sedan or for that matter any
other luxury car, then you can consider for full container service by hiring 20 foot
container. This will do the job for you, and secure your car to the final destination of
your choice. A 40 foot full container in the international shipping is approximately
roughly 2,200 cubic feet in size and is a good idea to ship a truck or any other huge
sized items. Bust, certainly, this is not a good option to explore, if you are taking it for
moving small household goods. In fact, this would turn out to be an expensive option

A full container will be occupied partly by your personal belongings and goods,
whereas the remaining portion is shared by another client. Sharing will help you to
reduce the price of the container, and you 鈥檇 only have to pay for the area that is
occupied with your goods, and not for the complete container.

Make sure that when you go for either full container or less container shipping, you
have a very clear idea about the quantity of goods that you will be transferring. Shipping International, Inc 975 66TH Avenue
