Three Types of Moving Solutions

As one of the top moving companies in Pocasset, Massachusetts, we strive to provide our clients with the very best and most comprehensive services for international move management in North America. It is important to have an understanding of what type of packing materials and equipment will be used to protect your belongings and transport them during international moves from the Cape and Southeastern Massachusetts to your destination. The more you know, the more confidence you will have in the entire process. UniGroup Worldwide UTS has many years of experience working with the planning of international moves, working with overseas transit protection, customs and international regulations. They use this experience to help clients choose the best methods for transporting household goods, as well as the containers that are used to pack their belongings.

Steamship Containers – Heavy duty steel is used to make these containers, which look just like the freight trailers used on semi trucks and trains. Choose from a 20-foot container that can hold 1100 cubic feet of stuff or a 40-foot container that can hold approximately 2300 cubic feet. They hold much more than a lift-van, so they are great for bulky shipments or large shipments with a minimum of 700 cubic feet or 4,000 pounds for best results. Not every country allows the use of these containers, but when they are used they provide the best protection compared to other types of international move management containers and crating. Compared to other methods for international moves from the Cape and all of Southeastern Massachusetts, the cost for this option is the lowest, as long as the minimum requirements for volume and weight have been met.

Lift-Van Containers – These are the types of containers used to safely transport goods overseas. Lined with water-resistant paper to keep goods dry, they are constructed of plywood and feature a 2-inch by 4-inch wooden frame that has attached skids for easy fork-lift movement. The standard sizes for these lift-van containers is 185-210 cubic feet. We have the ability to custom build crates for specialty or over-size items. This is the best choice for shipments that are less than 4,000 pounds and the crates can be used for other types of storage as well, to improve the handling and customs inspections for clearance. Lift-van containers are the preferred choice of transport for countries where steamship containers cannot be used.

Air Freight Containers – This is what is used if your household goods are being transported via air. Air freight containers are made from a triple layer of corrugated cardboard and can range in sizes from 18-96 cubic feet. The larger container selections are fitted with skids for easy forklift loading and unloading. The available dimensions are restricted so they are able to pass through the cargo doors of an aircraft.
