For clients looking to transfer only personal effects and household goods, a full container or less than container load (LCL) can be used. For a very large quantity of personal goods, a 20 ft or 40ft container may be the best option. For clients with less cargo, LCL is an affordable and efficient option that allows multiple people to share a single container. With this option, the goods need to be packed and palletized. Additionally, the client must submit a packing list and include the dimensions and weight of each item.

With container and LCL shipping, the client must load the personal effects into the container themselves. This is a very affordable option, as you will not have to pay someone to load your cargo. You should remember that to load the container, a tractor trailer must be able to enter the residential area, there must be sufficient parking and loading space for the truck with the container, and containers come in a chassis, which is about 4 feet above the ground and there is no ramp.
