Moving to Egypt? Self Pack Container Service Available For Personal Effects.
We can now offer our self pack container service to arrive at Alexandria, Damietta, Port Said and Sokhna.
You need to check any and all requirements for shipping to Egypt. We have been advised of different Customs and import requirements in some ports.
This journey was interesting for us. Not every shipping line calls every port. So, it is imperative you know where you want your container to go so that we can provide the correct container.
It is imperative you decide if you have a residence to move into immediately, or if you need to store the items for any amount of time.
All shipping lines only give us about 18 days free time for their container from when we pick this up until when we return it to the port. Whilst the shipping is weekly, the vessels only receive on specific days; so please check with us for the free days before you just get a container.
All shipping lines only give us a limited amount of time (usually 10 days from availablity) to return their container to the nominated depot at destination, before they start charging rather large amounts for container detention (the argument being they could use the container for other shipments).
The alternative is to purchase your own seaworthy and plated (an international shipping requirement) container which you can keep for an extended loading period and you do not have to return this and it can be used for extended periods of storage for these or other items, and may be sold at a later stage.
The transit time is about 7 weeks, so you need to make your departure and arrival plans to suit.
There may be some documentation you will need to complete on arrival, but this is not onerous. Essentially the process at destination is the reverse of what happens here. Your appointed agent will make sure your goods are handled efficiently and with a minimum of fuss.
If you wish to utilise our services, we can guide you through the process and work out an individual plan and schedule just for you.
