What should I be aware of before considering using container relocation services? Is it possible for me to load the containers onto the truck while I pack up everything by myself?

When deciding to relocate to the Dominican Republic, you could be tormented by these concerns. Our company, Three Men A Truck, will satisfy what should be your primary concern: Working with a company that can handle all of the responsibilities at once.

What Are The Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping?

Before a final bill can be offered to you, your containers must pass through several checks. Some of these are :

  • The package’s weight will determine the container you have to choose from 20′, 40′, or 40′ high cube containers. To avoid issues during the inspection procedure, your luggage should not exceed the limit weight of 67,200 lbs.
  • The distance between the United States and the Dominican Republic is 1998.44 miles, which is quite short in comparison to other far-off places. Depending on the amount of fuel per mile, the average shipping expenses could range from $1,117 to $2,694.
  • Peak season in the United States is from mid-August to mid-October, and this will have a significant impact on the base pricing. Due to a lack of resources, we are forced to schedule among the already high demand, increasing charges.

What Size Of Container Fits Best For You?

There are two types of container load styles that you can choose from:

  • Full Container Loads (FCL) are owned by a single party. These are favored by those who are relocating their entire home, including vehicles or offices, as well as a variety of digital assets.
  • Less Than A Container Load (LCL) arrives with an inventory list that must be followed as the packages are sent in a single container with other parties. You can save on costs by selecting this one, but be aware that you’ll be sharing the space.

Dry, thermal, refrigerated ISO, double-doored, and other types of containers are available, depending on your needs.

What Are The Types of Transport For Relocating Containers?

For your container going to the Dominican Republic, our company offers air and sea freight options.

With a minimum weight capacity of 250 pounds, our cargo airplanes will take up to 6 days to reach your destination, depending on the container you choose. Air freight costs around 5 times more than sea freight, so you should only choose this option if the price isn’t a concern, or time is of the essence.

Shipping by sea will take the same amount of time as flights from the United States. They can, however, hold up to 45,000 pounds, making them more weight tolerant. An FCL container might cost as little as $1,881.00, to begin with.

What Other Costs Can Add Up to Your Shipping?

The prices are extremely variable and are based on international taxation and verification fees. To avoid misdirection from our side to yours, we are very transparent with everything that is involved in the cost calculations.

The following are some of the general components:

  • Custom duties
  • Container inspection fees
  • General Rate Increase
  • Inland delivery charges
  • Quarantine fees
  • Insurance

We can supply you with an estimate that is tailored to your needs if you fill out our customer service form and indicate your destination in the Dominican Republic and the tentative date.

Frequently Asked Questions

My Container Is Being Delivered to My Home. How Much Space Is Required?

When planning to deliver a container to your site, you must examine several elements. You should understand beforehand the information about delivery fees, permitting requirements, ground conditions, and clearance space. The hardest thing that can happen is when your container gets removed because you neglected your assignment on researching specific site requirements!

● 20-foot storage containers usually require about a straight clearance of 75 feet.
● 40-foot storage containers need about a straightforward clearance of 100 feet. Most containers require a minimum of 12 feet of width clearance and 20 feet of overhead clearance.

Which Documents Are Necessary When Shipping to the Dominican Republic?

Aside from the CAFTA Certificate of Origin that is required for a shipment to be pushed through, there are important documents required when shipping a container to the Dominican Republic.

• Commercial Invoice: A commercial invoice declares what a client is sending to the Dominican Republic.
• Battery Statement: A battery statement is a document that declares any batteries on board the cargo being shipped because one of the Dominican Republic’s popular imports on air and ocean freight is devices that utilize batteries.

What Types of Goods Am I NOT Allowed to Ship to the Dominican Republic?

Several items are expressly unauthorized to be shipped into the Dominican Republic. The items include coffee, animal products, computer accessories, IATA-defined dangerous goods, telecommunication equipment, drugs and prescription, military equipment, tobacco, seeds, radar equipment, spare parts of shipping hardware, hazardous liquid, jewelry, etc.

What Kind of Taxes, Duties, and/or Fees Do I Have to Pay When Shipping to the Dominican Republic?

Individuals and corporations engaging in any of the referred economic activities are deemed taxpayers under the scope of the ITBIS unless expressly exempted. The taxes, duties, and fees that need to be paid when shipping to the Dominican Republic are Value Added Tax, Excise Tax, and Ad-Valorem.

VAT: The standard rate of ITBIS is 18 percent. However, certain goods enjoy a reduced VAT rate of 16 percent due to their high consumption, including certain dairy products, coffee, shortenings and oils, sugars, and chocolates.

Excise Tax: Excise tax is imposed on a series of products, including ‘luxury goods and specific services. These types of goods may be alcohol, tobacco, perfumes, diamonds, bijouterie, air conditioners, electronics, motor vehicles, guns, long-distance calls, insurance policies, cars with particular engines and golf carts, and fossil fuels.

Ad-Valorem. Ad-valorem tax is levied at 20 percent on tobacco, 10 percent on alcohol products, and 16 percent on fossil fuel and petroleum products.

What Is a Bill of Lading?

We receive a list of the items we paid for when we purchase items from the grocery store. That’s how a Bill of Lading works.

The Bill of Lading is a document executed by a carrier, such as a railroad or shipping line, acknowledging receipt of goods and embodying an agreement to transport the goods to a stated destination. Bills of Lading are closely related to warehouse receipts, which contain a contract for storage rather than carriage.

What’s The Difference Between Shipping Taxes and Shipping Duties?

Customs duties are based on product characteristics, while tariffs are expenses activated to specific products from particular countries at certain times. Lastly, tax rates are fixed and calculated on the total value of the product imported into the country. Each country has different fee obligations, with different speeds, rules, and forms.

What’s The Difference Between a FreightForwarder, a Broker, And An NVOCC?

When shipping your goods to the Dominican Republic, nothing is more important than securing that the company you work with is the perfect fit. That’s why we have to tap into the differences between two types of partner companies, such as Freight Forwarders and Non-Vessel Operating Common Carriers (NVOCCs). A broker is simply a person that works as an intermediary between you and a shipping company. An NVOCC acts as a full-fledged shipper. Finally, a freight forwarder is something in between. They act as a shipping company, but lack containers of their own, so they partially function as agents.

How Important Is It to Get Insurance for My Cargo?

As the case may be, cargoes are either destroyed, lost, or stolen. To avoid spending for additional costs, see to it that you have your Bill of Lading to protect the container against irrevocable losses. In the case of disaster, a cargo insurance policy compensates for the cargo purpose. The majority of cargo insurance policies are underwritten on an “all-risk basis.”

Do I Need to Be Present When My Container Is Delivered?

Yes, you must be physically present when the container is delivered because your signature will be required to sign specific documents. You also need to supervise the moving team when the container arrives so you can check if the goods are still intact.
