The process of shipping a container to a foreign country can be arduous without proper guidance. Thus, at Three Men And A Truck, we’ve chosen to make this difficult task a piece of cake for you.

We also engage in the shipping of containers to various territories in the world, including the Principality of Liechtenstein.

To help you understand this endeavor, we’ve written a guide on how the rates of shipping a container to Liechtenstein can be calculated. The factors influencing the rates are also revealed in this guide.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping a Container

The cost of shipping a container overseas is generally determined by five (5) major factors which are volume/weight of goods, shipping distance, port of destination, means of transport, and season of the year.

The cost of shipping a container internationally increases with an increase in the volume/weight of goods and an increase in the shipping distance. Different ports charge differently, government-owned ports are normally cheaper than privately owned ports. The means of transportation employed in shipping a container also affects the cost of shipping. Sea freight transport is usually the cheapest means of transportation.

The cost of shipping a container is also affected by the season of the year. The season in which there’s an increase in the cost of shipping is referred to as the “peak season“.  The peak season, which is typically between August and October every year, is marked by higher demand for shipments.

Which Size of Shipping Container Is Most Suitable for Me

When delivering shipments to Liechtenstein, you can choose between a 20ft or a 40ft container. Your choice depends on the weight/volume of the shipments. A 20ft container can accommodate 200 full-sized mattresses or 50-60 refrigerators, while a 40ft container can hold twice that quantity. Although a 40ft container has double the capacity of a 20ft container, it doesn’t commonly evoke twice the cost of a 20ft container.

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

The types of freight transportation include Air freight transport, sea freight transport, road (truck) freight transport, and rail freight transport. However, the most commonly used means of freight transport when delivering shipments to Liechtenstein are air and sea freight transport systems. Your choice of the means of transportation that should be employed depends on your need. If you don’t want to spend much on the shipping of your cargo, then you should use air freight transportation. Alternatively, if you want your shipments to arrive relatively faster, then employing air freight transport will be more beneficial to you.

Furthermore, most experts think that sea freight transportation is the most advantageous means of freight transportation since it can transport more weight/volume than an air freight transport system. Still, air cargo transportation is also valuable.

Additional Shipping Costs

Extra charges you may incur when shipping goods to Liechtenstein include:

  • Liechtenstein customs duties
  • Container inspection fees
  • General Rate Increase
  • Inland delivery charges
  • Quarantine fees
  • Insurance fees
  • Liechtenstein VAT
  • GST

The taxation for Liechtenstein depends on the local GST/VAT, as well as the item and its specified value. Similarly, the tax and duty threshold is the amount at which a person begins paying taxes based on the declared value of an item.

Furthermore, Liechtenstein is a doubly landlocked country. This means that it has no national seaport. Also, the country doesn’t have an airport. Thus, door-to-door services are the only option.

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

Non-commercial consignments worth more than 45 euros and commercial consignments worth more than 22 euros are subject to import tax.

A simplified calculation of charges utilizing a flat rate of duty may be applied where goods are subject to import tax:

● Are sent in occasional consignments by natural persons from areas that are not part of the Community customs territory or the island of Heligoland,
● Are sent free of payment to another natural person, and
● Are exclusively intended for the personal use or consumption of the consignee or his family, and
● The value of which does not exceed 700 euros

The import charges will then be calculated based on the Common Customs Tariff of the European Communities and the rates laid down in the relevant national tax legislation.
The total amount of import charges can be composed of the following types of duty:

● The customs duty levied on all imported goods,
● Excise duties including, for example, the charges on energy, tobacco products and spirits, alcopops, beer, sparkling wines, and intermediate products, which are due on all goods subject to excise duty, and the
● Value-added import tax levied on all imported goods.

Import charges of less than 5 euros shall not be levied. You will be handed the original calculation document. Usually, you are required to pay the set charges on the spot, and you will be given a receipt confirming the number of import charges paid by you.

If you are unable to pay the charges directly, you will have a period of 10 days in which to pay the set amount. The goods will not be released until payment has been done.

For more details about the kind of taxes, duties, and tariffs you may have to pay upon shipping a container to Liechtenstein, please refer to Zoll’s website.

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

Before shipping a container to a country, you must study first what differentiates taxes, tariffs, and duties from one another.

Customs duties are predicated on product characteristics, while tariffs are fees applied to specific products from particular countries for particular 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. To ensure that you comply with both the primary and more specific product certification requirements, you must work with trusted international partners.

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

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.

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.
