International Removals – Service options
Given that every client has individual requirements it is essential that we provide you with options that meet your specific needs. Some clients will be moving the entire contents of their home while others may only need to ship a few items. At Nuss, we are able to provide you with a service tailored to your individual needs. Your consultant will be able to identify the most appropriate service option for you.
Seafreight – Full Container Load
For International Removals that involve the entire home belongings it is most likely that you will need either a 20ft or 40ft steel shipping container. In most cases this means that we pack your belongings on site and reserve the final day for loading. The container is positioned at your residence on the last day and all of the items are carefully loaded directly into the container. The container is sealed and transported to the port for loading on to the shipping vessel. At the end of the sea transit period our nominated partner at your destination will arrange for the container and contents to be cleared through Customs, transported to your new residence and unloaded, unpacked and place the items directly in to your new home and dispose of the used packing debris. This is a basic explanation as there are exceptions based on local Customs requirements and circumstances such as difficult access to residence, etc but for the most part this is how an FCL move progresses.
Seafreight – Less than Container Load
For International Removals where the volume to be shipped does not require the use of a full container, LCL is the next best option. Your belongings would be fully export packed and wrapped and with this method, loaded into wooden shipping crates (often called liftvans) which are steel banded and delivered to the shipping company by Nuss.
The shipping company would then containerise the crates with other freight and ship on a scheduled departure. Upon arrival at the destination, our nominated partner would provide the normal Customs clearance, collect the crates from the shipping lines local terminal and deliver them to your residence, unpack and remove the used debris and crates for disposal.
Seafreight – Shared Container Method
This method is perfect for the client with just a few items to ship and under no time pressure for the items to arrive at the destination point. Your belongings are export packed and wrapped and returned to our depot. Unlike LCL they are not loaded into shipping crates but remain in our transit area pending consolidation with other clients’ belongings, destined for the same area, until such time as we have enough volume to fill a shipping container. Once the container is shipped and arrives at the destination port our nominated partner will process the shipment through Customs, deliver and unpack everything and remove the used debris.
Groupage tends to be the cheapest method of shipment as by sharing the container space we can reward you with lower shipping costs. There is also the savings to be gained by not placing the items in shipping crates. The main drawback of groupage is that it can sometimes take a while to consolidate the right sized shipments together going to the same destination but the savings are there for you if there is no rush to receive everything.
Airfreight is of course the fastest option but it is also the most expensive which is why most air shipments tend to be smaller in weight/volume. Air is often used too for a preliminary shipment of urgent items ahead of your main sea shipment when long distance and long transit times are unavoidable.
