Understand Pricing

Usually, international shipping companies establish their price regarding the volume not the weight. So, the price of moving will depend on how much is being moved, your belongings value and the distance to be moved. If possible, ship only the truly indispensable items and try to buy when you arrive to abate some of the cost.

Moreover, notice that removal costs may vary depending on the place where the stuff has to be sent from and its destination. Europe tends to be relatively expensive to ship to.

Shipping Size

Basic shipping costs are calculated on the amount of volume (cubic feet) that your packed goods will take up in one of our shipping containers. Volume is calculated by multiplying the length x depth x height. The most common size of containers are: (calculated in "feet")

  • Full Container Load (FCL): You will have exclusive use of a shipping container for your goods. The standard sizes for ocean freight containers are 20' x 8' x 8' 6" and 40' x 8' x 8' 6". Based on your estimated cubic footage you'll be able to decide which one you'll need.
  • Less than Container Load (LCL) (also known as also known as "groupage"): Your things will be packaged and sent overseas in a shared container. If you don't have a lot of items to ship, then LCL might be right for you. Keep in mind that the container might make multiple stops before it arrives at your destination. It is also likely that your things will be loaded and unloaded more than once, placed into new containers on different ships, and might take quite some time to get to you.

Common Additional Costs and problems

It is very difficult to estimate the exact price. The price is usually more expensive than the estimate. It is recommended to be knowledgeable about basic costs and budget more than the cost of the estimate.

  • Sometimes the delivery point is located in a difficult accessible place, so a smaller vehicle needs to be hired
  • Living in a building with no lift will require of extra man for the delivery, which might bring additional costs.
  • Parking permits may be necessary to get when collecting or delivering all goods (the customer usually must arrange it with a local council)
  • The final destination might be several hundred miles from a port, as it is Andorra's case, making shipping by sea not an option.  

Finding a Reputable Company

Regardless the company you choose, we advise you to talk to your agent in Andorra first (don't choose a removal service without one).
Your agent will check the volume to send, list specific objects (including fragile items), and specify the way of taking down and putting back together furniture. He/she will always find the best and cheapest solution for your shipping.
Then a preliminary estimate will be established. Don't forget to list all the belongings that you ship (the removal company will do it for you, as well) as you will need that list when you get to the Andorran customs.
On the day of the removal, a team will arrive to carry out the task. Every box will be listed (necessary to check if any box has been lost). Everything should be wrapped with specific protection. Containers are then sealed (check carefully) and sent to Andorra were Andorran movers will pick them up (a few days are necessary) and bring them to the destination described.
