It’s also known as a Less than Container Load (LCL) option. Full Container Load (FCL) solutions are ideal for any size shipment because when you pay for the whole container, the entire space is yours, and you don’t need to share it with anyone else.
At SDC International Shipping, we help you choose the container based on the size and volume of your household goods.

Don’t Move Without Insurance
We know that damage to your cargo is the last thing to bother you when hiring a moving company. However, it’s one of the first things you need to think about in reality. No matter professional packing, it will not provide 100% protection. Although there’s some degree of skepticism about buying international moving insurance, in case of damage or loss of your household goods, it will ruin the entire moving experience. International shipping is always prone to more danger, and you can’t ignore this fact.

Most of our containers arrive in Kuwait City. Although the itinerary may vary, our port of entry will always be in this city. Plus, this is the most popular destination for US work or study visa holders. Since we have storages across the east coast, most residential containers depart from one of these locations. However, if you prefer to send your container from the west coast, we can adjust the offer based on your needs.
