The cost of an international St. Louis move depends on many things but mostly on international destinations. Relocating domestically to Canada or Mexico is typically cheaper than overseas moves. As for transportation costs, trucks are used in all moves, but overseas moves also use shipping by sea, the cheapest option, or shipping by air, the most expensive. When shipping internationally, your belongings will be stored in a container. The 3 main sizes of containers are:
The two shipment options available are Full Container Load (FCL) and Less than Container Load (LCL). Which one you choose will depend on the size of your belongings. If you don’t have enough items to fill a full container, the best option is LCL. It’s more cost-effective because you share the container with others. LCL containers may take longer to get through customs.
