LCL Shipping

It’s like having your own dedicated small container made out of specially treated wood.


LCL shipments take place in what are called wooden liftvans. A "liftvan" is a large wooden box suitable for international shipment on an ocean ship.


This method entails that your belongings are full export packed with cardboard boxes and bubble-wrap, these items are then stowed into a liftvan (which usually one two measurements, a 220 cubic feet version and the 110 cubic feet version).

This liftvan is then transported to port and handed over to a port broker whom then hands over the shipment to the steamship line which then transports the liftvan to destination port inside a steal container (usually a 1x40 foot container), this liftvan is collected by another port broker at the other end whom then hands it over to a remover colleague of our choosing.


The shipment is then finally delivered, safe and sound, to your residence.


The benefits of the LCL shipment are:


• This method of shipment is faster door to door than a groupage container shipment

• The liftvan is for your sole use only

• LCL shipments reach all over the world, so for destinations we do not

    have a groupage service to: LCL shipments are the way to go for small removals.

• LCL liftvans are perfect for some usually shaped and delicate items
