With assistance from 1st Containers, packaging and storing your items ready for overseas relocation can be a stress free process from start to finish.
There are many reasons why people and businesses move to another country, but one issue that many relocations have in common is that good logistics are mandatory. 1st Containers has a lot of experience with both domestic and commercial relocations. We believe we can save customers a lot of money whilst helping to eliminating as much stress as possible from the equitation.
Instead of hiring a removal company to move personal belongings, many customers would benefit from consulting a shipping specialist like 1st Containers. Many removal companies charge their services by the hour, so just loading your already packaged furniture might turn into an expensive and tense adventure. Since goods are rarely shipped right away to foreign countries, removal companies sometimes take goods into warehouses, with the potential to run up a sizeable bill if there are any delays. In effect, that means that expenses can accumulate before the journey even starts.
1st Containers can help customers takes a different, more efficient approach! Customers can simply choose a container thats large enough to fit their belongings comfortably into. 20ft containers have 1160 cubic feet of internal space and are frequently chosen for household relocations, while 40ft containers with 2360 cubic feet of available storage space are more often used for business relocations or large houses. Our delivery team will arrive to the address you specify and leave the unit in a convenient and safe location, allowing you to sort and load your goods into the container at your leisure. This allows customers to avoid paying high per hour fees while gaining a lot of flexibility. It’s not a surprise that our ‘drop and return’ option is very popular!
We apply the highest standards of professionalism to all aspects of service, from helping you choose the most appropriate container, to keeping tight schedules when it comes to delivering shipping containers. Our employees are well versed in the technical ‘dos and don’ts’ of the container industry, and can readily provide sound advice to help you ensure that everything runs according to plan.
