Container Shipping Cost
Hi -- potential newbie here.
Who has recently had a 40 foot container shipped to St Croix from the US (Charleston, Jacksonville, Ft Lauderdale, Miami)?
What was the cost?
You can contact Crowley at this link and get a quote. http://www.crowley.com/What-We-Do/Shipping-and-Logistics/Liner-Logistics-Rate-Request
I would contact a few of the shippers for a quote. I would think that it should be about $6000-$8000 for a 40' from JAX.
We shipped a 40' from Detroit to the Grenadines in 2006 for $3000 using a Toronto based shipper but those days are over!
Thanks for all the info.
We still have to decide whether to bring one or two cars plus how much "stuff." At one point a few years ago we had two 40-footers full of stuff and have been downsizing the past couple of years as the kids are grown and out of the house. Still don't know when it's going to happen. The later it happens the less stuff we'll have. I hope to get it down to enough for a small house (2-3 BR).
Too true. We live on an island now (Hilton Head) and in a house half the size we used to live in four years ago. We're ready to live in a house half this size.
It isn't just about economics; it's about a simpler existence.
My wife and I both grew up in a tropical area -- me, in Ft Lauderdale in the 50's and 60's (before it was "developed") and my wife, in Jamaica in the 60's and 70's, so we understand the life very well and can't wait to get back.
