Container Loading for Household goods requires using a knowledgeable company that has experience with both packing as well as shipping international goods. Each country has a separate list for goods that are not allowed into the country. A company that can accumulate your items as well as pack and load them is a good way to start the process.
Look for a company that has experience with container loading. Certain items will need to have cardboard wrapping for protection. Other items will need to be bubble wrapped and put inside boxes for protection. High value or delicate items may need to have special crates built.
Blocking and bracing will need to be done inside the container. A complete list of items will need to be kept to be presented to customs.
Customs documentation will need to be filled in.
Ask if the company can provide you with a commercial bill of lading. They will also need to provide you with contact numbers when your shipment is delivered to your destination port.
Ask them for a quote up front for the pick up, packing and shipping charges.
