While moving to Samoa may be a once-in-a-lifetime chance, the tedious process of packing and relocation cost management is equally tiring and frustrating.

Three Men And A Truck is here to help you with all you require. Finding packing supplies, packing various household items or office luggage, choosing various insurance policies, planning containers, and so on are all examples of things we can do for you. From beginning to end, we’ve got you covered.

What Are the Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping?

There are a few factors to consider while carefully organizing your budget to save money wherever possible. This is simple to do while investigating different moving phases and consulting with our experienced staff at each step.

These can be:

  • The weight of your cargo defines the size of the container you need: 20′, 20′ cube, 40′, 40′ cube, flat-racked, open-roofed, and so on. There is a 40,000-pound weight restriction, so keep that in mind. Tobacco, money orders, ice, blue (blue ice), wine, credit card blanks, acids, and other items are restricted by the Samoan government. Therefore, these items must be licensed ahead of time.
  • The distance between the United States and Samoa is 6,061 miles, which will have a direct impact on the cost of fuel per mile. You must also be aware of cost variations owing to seasonal pricing changes and insurance for natural turbulence while relocating containers to Samoa.
  • The peak season in the United States is usually from August to October. Because these are the most advantageous times for relocation, clients overburden moving companies with their needs.This has an increasing impact on costs, and there is also a resource constraint. As a result, companies tend to charge more than the base price during these times of the year, and they should be avoided.

What Size of Container Fits Your Requirements?

You can select from a wide range of containers to meet your assets’ moving requirements.

Some of them are:

  • High Cube Containers
  • Thermal Container
  • Refrigerated ISO Container
  • Half-Height Container

Then there are further classifications of ownership:

  • Individuals that want sole ownership of a container should book a Full Container Load (FCL). These have a low risk of being damaged and are delivered quickly according to your time. For a 20′ container, the starting price is $4,554.00.
  • Multiple ownership is for Less Than a Container Load, or LCL. If you need to save money, we may easily combine your luggage with that of other parties in the same container. However, you will be bound by a strict weight limit and may have delays while synchronizing with other people’s schedules.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Difference Between Shipping Duties and Shipping Taxes?

Although both levies are imposed on commodities, their applications and goals are very different. To reduce reliance on foreign goods, taxes are levied on all commodities purchased in the country, whereas duties are placed largely on imported goods.

How Important is it to Get Insurance for My Cargo?

Your shipment’s insurance is vitally important and required. This is because any damages or losses that occur during the shipment of the products are usually covered by the insurance company. In addition, most countries demand an insurance certificate for imported goods.

What Type of Goods Am I Not Permitted to Ship to Samoa?

Prohibited

● Dried or canned food products
● Narcotics
● Plants, seeds, vegetables, and fruits
● Soil, livestock, or animal pests
● Biological (bacteria cultures, fungi specimens, viruses, and others for research)
● Imports from embargoed countries (Cuba, Iran, Sudan, Myanmar) and leather souvenirs imported from Haiti (drums).
● Endangered wildlife products and species.
● Items that violate trade and copyright regulations
● Fully automatic weapons and semi-automatic weapons (see the restricted section)
● Pornography
● Articles infringing copyrights
● Hazardous articles like fireworks, uncertified toys, and health-hazardous substances.

Restricted

● Cat and dog (must be accompanied with a recent health and rabies certificate)
● Medications (all health-related drugs must be properly labeled)
● Seafood

What Are the Essential Documents Needed When Shipping to Samoa?

When shipping your belongings to Samoa, the required documents you must provide include:

● Copy of passport (some ports require passports for all family members listed on the 3299)
● Form CF-3299
● Supplemental declaration (required by most ports)
● Detailed inventory in English
● Copy of visa (if non-US citizen / permanent resident) / copy of permanent resident card
● I-94 stamp / card
● Copy of bill of lading (OBL) / air waybill (AWB)
● Form DS-1504 (diplomats)
● A-1 visa (diplomats)
● Importers security filing (ISF)

Is it Possible to Track My Container While it is Still in Transit?

We provide a tracking system that allows you to monitor the movement of your shipment and receive updates as needed. You’ll need the container number/Bill of lading/Booking number, as well as the shipping line, to track the location of a container. Any of these three resources can be utilized to locate and track a container.

What is the Maximum Weight That Can Be Loaded into a Container?

The maximum weight that can be loaded into a container differs depending on the type of container. A 20-foot container’s tare weight is normally around 2,170kg. The gross weight of a 20-foot container is roughly 67,200 pounds.

A 40-foot container’s tare weight, on the other hand, is typically around 3,750kg. The maximum gross weight of a 40-foot container is roughly 67,200 pounds. Since it has the same (or possibly less) maximum weight as a 20-foot container, you must select a container whose capacity corresponds to the weight of your cargo.

Do I Need to Be Present During the Delivery of My Container?

It will be easier for us to ship your things to their final destination if you are present at the delivery site. Being there at the delivery site will also aid in the prevention of long-term issues because you’ll be able to keep an eye on how we handle your items. You’ll also be required to sign some delivery documents, which you can only do if you’re present at the delivery place. To summarize, the answer to the above question is a resounding YES. You should be there when your things are delivered.

Are Shipping Containers Waterproof and Properly Ventilated?

Shipping containers are not all waterproof; in most cases, shipping containers are only watertight. This helps to keep precipitation, snow, and rain at bay. If submerged in water or flooded, however, these containers will almost surely leak.

Some containers, especially ones that have been used before, may not be properly vented. As a result, you should check the vents of the container on a regular basis. Three Men And A Truck provides the best service by giving you the best shipping containers that are properly vented.

What is a Bill of Lading?

In international shipping, the bill of lading is one of the most crucial documents. A bill of lading serves as both a freight receipt and a title document. It’s utilized to make sure an exporter gets paid while the importer gets their goods.

What Happens if I Lose My Bill of Lading?

Losing the bill of lading can be a major setback because it means you’ve misplaced the receipt and document that details the quantity, type, and destination of your shipment. You will not be able to obtain another copy of the bill of lading if the original copy has been lost.

However, if this occurs, the shipper should sign a letter releasing the carrier of the goods from any type of indemnity. It is also necessary to financially secure the carrier by obtaining a bank guarantee.
