Air Freight

Air Freight shipments are generally needed when there are specific personal effects required, within a short time frame. Many customers will have a smaller air freight shipment arriving in advance of their sea freight. This is a popular option for customers moving into longer term transit accommodation while they wait for their primary shipment, or self-employed workers setting up their home office.

Sea Freight Sole-Use Container

Sole-use 20’ or 40’ shipping containers are most often used for complete house loads, and can include additional items e.g. motor vehicles. They are the most efficient and quickest option for a direct door-to-door service. In some instances, we can deliver your personal effects from the same container that was loaded at residence.

Sea Freight Shared Container

Shared or Groupage Containers are a popular choice, often being used for small shipments or when two to three households of personal effects can be consolidated into the same container. Generally, a shared container is very cost effective, as you only pay for the space you use. They are especially popular with less time sensitive customers.
