If you want less than a full container, or a mix of brands, our Special Order Program may be right for you.
The following is a rough estimate based on previous container orders. Please contact us to get specific quotes for your container.
|Budgeting for a Container|

|Marine Insurance||$200 - $300|

When ordering a container you will be ordering by CBMs (Cubic Meters) to fill the container's volume. For easy substitution please order at least an extra 5 CBMs per container. For example, if you were ordering a 40' standard container you would place an order for at least 63 CBMs instead of 58 CBMs. The supplier will ship the first 58 CBMs that are available.
We are now offering consolidating containers. We can now mix up to 3 different suppliers in a container and ship from China directly to you.
