Container Shipping To Boston from UK

We at Fastlane provide shared container shipping and sole use container shipping to Boston, Massachusetts. Depending on your individual requirements our expert advisors will guide you on the ideal container size appropriate for you. The main different sizes of container offered are normally twenty feet containers or forty feet containers.

Commercial shipping in Containers

For UK companies considering the export of goods to Boston, we can arrange this in either a full 20/40 foot container or alternatively, a shared container. The sole use container is ideal for moving huge volumes of commercial goods to Boston for example large machinery, office equipment and so on. On the other hand, the shared container is suitable for smaller volumes of commercial goods being shipped to Boston e.g. one pallet containing spare parts.

The benefits of using shared container as opposed to sole use container is that the shipping cost is greatly reduced as you only pay for the amount of space used up in the container. On the other hand, the sole use container also works out cheaper in the long run if shipping huge volumes of goods and you have more flexibility as what you can load into the container.

    Shipping personal effects in containers

    Fastlane can arrange the shipping of your personal goods from the UK to Boston Massachusetts in standard 20 or 40 foot metal containers. The containers are very strong and can withstand all kinds of weather conditions, thus ensuring that your goods arrive in one piece.

    The two main options that we offer are the shared container service (also known as LCL) or the full container service (FCL).

    If you are considering shipping all the contents of your home then we recommend the full container option as you will not only have more space to fit your items, you will also fin it is cheaper in the long run. However, if your intention is only to take a few items of personal effects with you to Boston then the shared container option will suit you as there is no need to hire a full container just for a few items.

    Shipping cars in containers

    While shipping a container to Boston, we can merge your household items with your car within your own container. We would place a container at your home on the day and you will then be required to cautiously load the vehicle inside the container. Should you have difficulty loading the vehicle by yourself, we also have an in-house car loading service at any of our loading bays in Southampton, London, Manchester and Birmingham.
