Shipping Container Costs to United States of America

Getting your stuff shipped over to the United States doesn’t have to be a daunting task. With a huge number of ports to choose from, you’re sure to find a port that’s convenient and close to your new home.

Major ports like New York and Los Angeles and hubs like Denver and Chicago make getting your possessions shipped to either side of the USA easily. At MoveHub we’re here to help you find a shipping company to make your move from the USA as simple as possible.

Different shipping options to the USA

With the an ocean standing between most countries and the United States, the best way to get your stuff there is to send it by sea or air, which generally doesn’t take that long either.

If you’re moving in a hurry and need to get everything Stateside fast, then air freight is going to be your best bet, but this comes with a premium price. However, shipping your belongings by sea is also relatively quick, taking just over a week in some cases, depending on the amount you’re transporting and to where.

Of course, if you’re not living close to one of the major ports on the coast, there are plenty of other inland options available and door-to-door delivery usually comes as standard with international shipping.

Bringing items into the United States

As you’d imagine with a country the size of the USA there are restrictions on what you can bring into the country. We’ve put a list of general items together below, but you can find more information on the USA Customs and Border Protection website.
