LCL - Less than Container Load
Less than container load shipments (not enough of your own cargo to fill a container)
We can not accept UNPACKED goods in our LCL service and we can only handle shipments that we packed in boxes, cartons, drums, and barrels or in some other way PACKED. - If you have loose furniture it has to be packed before we can accept it for shipment in a groupage container. If you are not able to adequately pack your furniture you can have a local mover pack it for you. - It is important to have a good idea of the sizes of your cartons or boxes as well as the estimated weights.
FCL - Full Container Loads
Full container shipments: (The containers are 20 foot or 40 foot long by 8 foot wide and 8.5 foot or 9 foot high)
Please advise the details of your place of loading such as city and zip / postal code if you want us to quote to have the container brought to your house for loading.
We do not arrange for the loading of your goods into the container. For this you can do this on your own or hire local labor to take your goods from your house and load them into the container. You can also arrange with a local mover to pack your goods into the container that we will have brought to your home.
When do you plan to make your shipment? If you plan to make your shipment more than three months in the future keep in mind that rates may change and it is more effective to start to plan your shipment about 6 weeks before you expect to make your shipment.
