What is Seafreight?
JIT Removals offers a variety of ways to ship your goods to or from Ireland. Sea freight is a popular and cheaper solution for customers who need to ship non-essential items.
When it comes to long distances, sea freight is usually cheaper than any other form of transportation. The cost depends on the distance between the point of origin and the destination, as well as the weight of goods to be shipped and also the volume that they take up when packed. Sea freight companies take advantage of increased logistical options, leading to longer transport times and much reduced costs when compared to air freight.
JIT Removals can provide door-to-door sea freight services by using our reliable and carefully vetted agents across the world to come to your office or home and carefully pack your belongings for shipment. The cost of clearing customs in Ireland or your country of destination is usually included in our quote, with any extra costs arising at the destination port invoiced to you on delivery. Custom rates will vary from country to country.
Here are some commonly asked questions about air freight:
How do I get my goods to and from the ship?
Haulage involves moving your goods to and from the shipping docks involved. While this cost can be negligible if you’re moving between two major world cities, it can be very significant when you’re moving to a town that isn’t near a major port or to a rural area where there’s a limited choice of local hauliers. Call us today to discuss your exact needs in this regard.
What are my sea freight shipping options?
There are two ways of shipping your goods by sea. These are known as Part Load Service and Full Load Service.
Part Load Service
JIT Removals offers Part Load Service to most locations. You don’t have to worry if you don’t have enough furniture or goods to fill a container, we will arrange it so that your shipment is part of a route that ensures the most efficient service. This is particularly useful for people who are not moving an entire office or household, but need to get a smaller shipment to an international destination. Your goods will be palletized and loaded into a container together with other people’s goods going to the same destination country or region. However, it is important to be aware that with Part Load Service you do need flexibility on your timing as shipping is dependent on the consolidation of a number of shipments to fill a container.Get part load service quote here
Full Load Service
Moving an entire household or office? When it comes to full load services, we take complete responsibility for delivering your goods from door-to-door wherever possible. Whatever the size of your consignment and no matter where in the world you need it delivered, JIT Removals will provide a solution to your needs. Whether the destination is within Ireland, the UK or the rest of Europe, we will ensure it arrives safely and on time. If you choose the full load service option, we will be able to confirm specific shipping dates. Your goods will be loaded into a steel shipping container which will be exclusively for your use. Depending on space constraints, it is also possible that the container can be loaded and unloaded at your office or residence.Get full load service quote here
