Considerations affecting the average cost of moving containers
A few factors can affect the cost of moving a shipping container.
1. The container size
Larger containers cost more to move than smaller ones.
2. The distance you are moving the container
The further you move the container, the higher the cost.
3. The type of container
Standard containers are the most common and the cheapest to move. Reefers are refrigerated containers and cost more to move. Flat racks are containers with no sides used for large, heavy items. These also cost more to move.
4. The number of containers you are moving
Moving multiple containers usually be cheaper than moving one since the cost can be split between multiple containers.
5. The time of year
Moving containers during the summer is usually more expensive than during the winter.
6. The type of move
A move might be either local or long distance. Local moves are usually cheaper than long-distance moves.
7. The route
The route you take to move the container affects the cost. The shortest route is usually the cheapest.
8. The mode of transportation:
There are three modes of transportation for moving containers, lorry, train, and ship. Lorry is the most common and usually the cheapest. The train is usually more expensive than a lorry but cheaper than a ship. A ship is the most expensive but can be the only option for long-distance moves.
9. The cargo:
The type of cargo you are moving affects the cost. If you are moving dangerous cargo, it usually costs more to move.
10. Special circumstances:
Some special circumstances can affect the cost of moving a container. The cost is higher if you move the container over a bridge or through a tunnel. If the container needs to be unloaded and reloaded onto another mode of transportation, the cost also is higher.
It is best to contact a professional mover to estimate how much it costs to move your shipping container. They can provide a more accurate estimate depending on the specifics of your case.
