Shipping Container Costs to United States of America

There’s a reason why New York is known as the Big Apple; life here is sweet, refreshing, and comes in a variety of colours. The tall buildings, yellow taxi cabs and strong accents will make you feel like you’re in a Hollywood film. If you want an exciting and fast-moving life then New York is a great place to be. Fortunately, it’s extremely easy to ship your belongings there, so rest easy.

Different shipping options

You’ve got two main choices when it comes to sending your stuff to New York; sea and air. Shipping via sea is fairly slow but comparatively cheap, while shipping via air is much faster and more expensive. It all depends on how much time you have before you need to move. We recommend using the ocean simply because it’s way better value, and you can also take a lot more stuff in a shipping container than you can on a plane. Most professional shipping companies will offer a full door-to-door service, but make sure you check with them before you agree on a price. When it comes to choosing between a 20-foot and 40-foot container, our page on international shipping costs will be a huge help.

Major shipping routes

New York is a massive city, so it only seems right that its main shipping port is massive too. The Port of New York and New Jersey is the biggest port along the East Coast and the third largest in the whole of America. It contains no less than four terminals and all the container ships heading into New York have to come here.

American customs

The US are known for their super strict customs, but there’s nothing wrong with being careful. You need to complete a “Declaration for Free Entry of Unaccompanied Articles”, otherwise known as Form 3299, which sounds fancy but it’s basically just a list of everything you’re sending over there. Just be honest about everything and it will all be fine. What’s more, all of our partners are very clever and they can help you get through the customs process. We recommend the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) website for more information.
