Shipping Container Costs to Spain

Where better to relax in the sun than in the country that invented the siesta? Spain is one of the most visited places in the world, and it’s not surprising. Everything about Spanish culture is rich and varied, from the food and the scenery to the fun-loving people. For cosmopolitan urban living you’ve got the northern cities of Madrid and Barcelona, while the south of Spain offers something a little different. Across the country you’ll find deserts and snow and everything in between. Beach-lovers go crazy for the Spanish coast, all the way from the Costa Brava to the Costa del Sol. What’s more, every region comes with it’s own traditional dish, such as the yummy gazpacho soup (Andalusia) and paella (Valencia). Before you move, there’s some practical information you need to know about.

Different shipping options

To transport your belongings to Spain, you have to choose between two options: sea freight or air freight. Planes are quick but expensive, while container ships are slower but also much better value. We naturally recommend that you go for ocean shipping, just make sure you don’t leave everything until the last minute. If you do opt for sea freight, you have to choose between a 20ft and 40ft container. You also need to decide if you’ll be using the whole container or just a portion of it, known as Less Than Container Load (LCL). All of this depends on how much stuff you’re bringing to Spain, and your shipping company can help you with this decision. Most of our suppliers offer a full door-to-door service (which is very helpful) but you should double check with any supplier before agreeing to a price.

Major shipping routes

There are three major shipping ports in Spain and it’s highly likely that your container will be going to one of these. They are: Barcelona (in the northeast), Valencia (on the east coast) and Algeciras (on the south coast). You may not have heard of it, but Algeciras is actually Spain’s busiest and most important port. It acts as a corridor between Europe, Africa and America, so it’s very special. Once your container reaches a Spanish port, it will go by truck or train to your new house. A door-to-door service means you won’t have to worry about organising this final stage on your own.

Spanish customs

Any shipment coming into Spain will have to deal with duties and inspection, but do everything they ask and you won’t have any issues. Most importantly, you are required to create a detailed inventory of everything inside your container - and it must be in Spanish. The majority of containers receive physical inspection at Spanish ports, but if the contents doesn’t match what’s in the inventory then you’ll face penalties and extra fees. Be specific, clear and honest. Shipments of used household goods coming from within the EU can avoid most import duties, but you need to prove that the you’ll be keeping the goods in Spain for at least one year after arrival. See below to find out what items are restricted or prohibited by Spanish customs.
