If you have to plan a move and you need a space to store your belongings, it is important to know the market prices and that they adjust to your needs and budget. In Hakotrans, we have a wide variety of containers to adapt to the needs of each client, we will assign you one depending on the volume of your belongings.
Containers come in different sizes, being the most common for a move the 20 and 40 feet. To give you an idea of their size, a 20-foot container (approximately 6 meters) is ideal for a 1 to 2-bedroom house, while a 40-foot container (approximately 12 meters) is suitable for a 3 to 5-bedroom house.
Distance is another of the most important factors to consider when planning a move with a container. If the container has to travel long distances, it may be necessary to consider an additional price for transportation, such as sea and land transportation charges, international border fees, etc.
In this case, we recommend you to compare the prices of several transportation companies, and choose one that offers a good balance between price and quality of service, so that we can obtain a cost-effective and efficient move.
Duration of the rental
The duration of the rental also affects the final price of a container. Planning the duration of the move and taking into account possible unforeseen events will allow us to select the most suitable and cost-effective rental option.
Other aspects to take into account
As mentioned above, the price of a container varies according to its size, distance and time, but you must also take into account other factors such as the type of shipment, the port of origin and destination or additional services such as customs clearance and moving insurance, as these services can add extra charges to the shipment of your container.
