How to pack shipping container
HOW LARGE IS MY SHIPMENT?
A 20-foot ocean container is 20-foot long, 8-foot wide and 8-foot tall (capacity approximately 1200 cubic feet). A 40-foot container is 40-foot long, 8-foot wide and 8-foot tall (capacity approximately 2400 cubic feet).
DO YOU NEED HELP PACKING AND/OR LOADING?
Packing and loading your own ocean container will save you thousands versus using a traditional full-service moving company. However many people would like to both save money AND have assistance with either packing or loading their shipment. Fortunately there are new packing/loading options that are much less expensive than full-service moving companies. UPakWeShip recommends the services of Moving Staffers; their rates start as low as $299 for 3 hours of assistance: http://www.movingstaffers.com. You can use UPakWeShip for shipping and Moving Staffers for labor and still SPEND LESS than you would with a traditional moving company!
