Guide to Moving Out and Relocating

Packing & Loading Method


FCL - Full Container Load
(Sole Use Container)
If your shipment is large enough for one 20’ steel container & if storage is not required at both ends, Vanpac International will recommend that your effects be loaded directly into a shipping container at your residence, which will only be carrying your goods

Where access allows, we will bring the empty shipping container to your residence in advance and all packed items can be loaded directly into the container and sealed outside your home in your presence, giving you maximum security and a peace of mind. The sealed container will then be transported directly to the container terminal for immediate shipment.

LCL - Less Than a Container Load

(Cased Container)

For shipments where a full container would not be economical, your goods will be loaded into purpose made container (liftvan/cased) at our warehouse. For LCL shipment which does not fill a container, we will send to the carrier for the next vessel. The carriers then load into a steel shipping container

(Share a Container)
This service is provided by Vanpac International to the more popular destinations worldwide. Several shipments to a common destination are consolidated at our operation centre prior loading into a shipping container. Because freight costs are shared, we are able to pass on the savings to you. The shipment of personal effects are packed at your home and then loaded into our removal van for transit to our warehouse. Here the effects can be stored up to one month free of charge, and loaded into the next available container to your destination. This option is the most economical but may take a little longer to reach the final destination, depending on our load. This is ideal if you are not in a hurry on receiving your shipment. You may check with the Relocations Consultant at the time of moving.

Air Freight

Although air freight is more expensive than sea freight, it is worth considering sending a small portion of essentials in advance of your sea shipment. Many people send anything from baby’s cot and toys to vital work related documents.
