The most common misperception about container shifting is that it is too expensive. Furthermore, it is a procedure that would necessitate months of planning followed by another set of months of execution.

That is where Three Men And A Truck comes in. To dispel all of these myths, we offer a comprehensive service package that includes everything from quotation consultation to relocating your packages to your new home or workplace.

What Are The Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping?

As we seek to provide you with a service that is sincere and considerate in its approach, there are certain considerations to consider for wisely managing your finances.

Some of them are :

  • Weight is the determining factor for your choice of containers ranging from 20’ to 40’ cube containers. Depending on your needs, they might weigh anything from 250 to 45,000 pounds. Special attention must be taken to the Ecuadorian government’s restricted items, such as refrigerants R12 and R502, TV Decoders, cell phones, and other devices that must be licensed before entering.
  • The Distance between the United States and Ecuador is 2,904 miles, which is significantly shorter than the distance between other distant places. This will significantly benefit your fuel charge saving and save you hundreds of dollars.
  • The Peak season is critical for avoiding high pricing caused by a shortage of resources in the container movement industry. It usually occurs between the middle of August and the middle of October. Prices have usually increased this year, notably in 2021, due to the recovering economy and transportation development.

What Size Of Container Is According To Your Requirements?

Our company offers a variety of container designs, ranging from weight needs to specialized product requirements. Dry, thermal, refrigerated ISO, double-doored, tunnel, and other types of containers are available.

Although the two major categories are :

  • Full Container (FCL) is owned by the party requiring isolation of their goods from others and hence book the entire container. These are more expensive, starting at $1,391.50 for a 20′ container and $1,716.00 for a 40′ container.
  • Less Than A Container (LCL) shipping is a more cost-effective option in which your items are combined with those of others. Depending on their weight and occupancy, their charges might range from $522.50 to $660.00.

What Are The Types of Transport For Relocating Containers?

We offer air and ship freight solutions to traverse the distance between the United States and Ecuador.

Air transport is preferred by those for want expedited delivery, which might take up to 1-3 days. However, the containers have a weight limit, and if you have a lot of weight, you will have to take many flights, which is problematic.

It takes roughly 13 days for ocean freight to arrive in Ecuador. They are far less expensive than the earlier choice and can take up quite large containers.

What Other Costs Can Add Up to Your Shipping?

All additional expenses, including the Emergency Bunker Surcharge (EBS), which is an unexpected increase in fuel prices during or before your shipping, will be included in the final bill.

Others are :

  • Custom duties

Frequently Asked Questions

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

When shipping a container to Ecuador, your shipment may be subject to Value-Added Tax, Ad Valorem, FODINFA, or ICE.

Value-Added Tax is levied at the rates of either 12% or 0% of the excellent transportation, good importation, and service rendering. Royalties and intangible property are also charged with a 12% VAT.

Ad Valorem. Ad-valorem is consistent in percentages according to the type of merchandise.

FODINFA (Development Fund for Children). 0.5% is applied to the tax base of the import.

ICE (Special Consumption Tax). Percentage variable according to the goods and services that are imported.

Which Documents Are Necessary When Shipping to Ecuador?

Before packing your belongings and shipping a container to Ecuador, you should be aware that certain items require detailed documentation upon entry into the country. Importing products into Ecuador necessitates the following documentation:

● Commercial invoice
● Document transportation
● Original or copy of the bill of lading or airway bill
● Insurance policy following the Insurance Law
● Income tax registry number (RUC)
● Certificate of origin when applicable (to qualify for tariff preferences when available)
● INEN-1 certificate (standards compliance), when applicable.

What Types of Goods Am I NOT Allowed to Ship to Ecuador?

Upon entering Ecuador, you must check if a specific good requires prior authorization and standards certification from various government agencies. Ecuador maintains bans on the import of used motor vehicles, tires, and clothing. Used special-purpose vehicles such as ambulances, mobile clinics, street sweepers, and fire trucks are permitted as donations. Ecuador applies a special consumption tax (ICE) to certain “luxury” products, including distilled spirits, beer, cigarettes, and soft drinks.

What Is a Bill of Lading?

A Bill of Lading in the shipping dictionary is a record of trade goods received on board. It establishes a written agreement between a transport company and its client.

What Happens If I Lose the Bill of Lading?

If a Bill of Lading is destroyed, stolen, or lost, the client won’t obtain a new copy unless the original document was found. You will need to submit several requirements to get another copy, such as a letter from the shipper, count order, letter of indemnity, bank guarantee, and a commercial invoice and packing list.

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

It’s essential to learn how to distinguish between taxes and duties because they often get interchanged.

Customs duties are a type of tax collected by customs to generate revenue for the government and to protect local industries. Anti-dumping taxes, trade tariffs, export duties, and excise duties are all examples of such measures.

Taxes are fees levied by the government on goods purchased in a country. This includes the VAT, sales tax, and the goods and services tax (GST).

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

Scheduling container delivery to your site, you must consider a few factors. You should know in advance the exact details about delivery fees, permitting requirements, ground conditions, and clearance space. Having your container delivered only to realize that you don’t have space for it is something you don’t want to go through.

A 20-foot storage container usually requires about 75 feet of straight clearance. A 40-foot storage container will need about 100 feet of straightforward clearance. For most containers, you need a minimum of 12 feet of width clearance and 20 feet of overhead clearance.

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

When shipping your goods to a different country, nothing is more important than ensuring the company you work with is the perfect fit. That’s why Three Men And A Truck will help you while you learn the differences between two types of associate companies, such as Non-Vessel Operating Common Carriers (NVOCCs) and Freight Forwarders.

According to More Than Shipping, Freight Forwarders and NVOCCs are classified by The Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) as Ocean Transportation Intermediaries. They usually get interchanged as the same during most transportation procedures due to their indistinguishable FMC categorization, but there are some differences between these. In the scope of multiple transport modes and international maritime, these differences are especially apparent.

A freight broker is a person that serves as the intermediary between a freight transportation provider and the shipping client.

How Important Is It to Get Insurance for My Cargo?

Most service providers face unanticipated emergencies, and transportation companies are no exception. The sheer number of containers lost at sea is concerning. That is where insurance policies come into play.

Cargo insurance protects your container’s value and ensures its safety from physical damage. By deciding to spend a small fraction of your items’ value, you’re protecting your rights for when the day the unexpected occurs.
