Upakweship, the shared container service

  2. 2. Thank you for considering UPakWeShip for your moving needs. We offer everyone the best possible customer service and the most economic ways of shipping without compromising on service and promise you an all inclusive price. We are very proud to be, as far as we know the only company offering all these things.

Hopefully the next few minutes will give you a better idea of what we do and how the shared container service works. I have been in the moving business for over 30 years and have moved internationally five times my self so any help or advice you need please call me. Mark Nash 1 866 868 6386 “Go PackYourself”
  3. 3. Every week we load shipping containers full of boxes that are full of peoples belongings. You only pay for your share of the container in other words you just pay for the space that your shipment takes up in the container. You can use cardboard moving boxes, plastic crates with lids, rubber made boxes, trunks, foot lockers or any small palletized crate or case. You have a choice of dropping off at one of our terminals or for an additional $2.00 per cubic foot min $200 we can arrange collection from your ground floor front door or office. Shared Container
  4. 4. We offer an all inclusive lump sum price for 51 to 100 cubic feet and a rate per cubic foot thereafter. As everything is put on pallets and shrink wrapped, this service is only good for things in boxes. If you have a piece of furniture look at the U Box, U Crate or Lift van options. See how we measure shipments by clicking here. Pricing
  5. 5. UPakWeShip has receiving terminals in most major cities in the USA, click here to see our terminal location map. Obviously you save the $200 minimum collection fee if you drop off at one of our terminals. It also gives you more flexibility as you can drop off any day Monday to Friday 8-30am to 5-30pm. Our collection service is for boxes only from ground floor front door. Collections are normally done late morning or some time in the afternoon but we can offer you a 2 hour collection window for an additional $75. If you need collection from an apartment building or inside your residence it might be best if you hire a local man and van or mover to do this for you and pay them to deliver to our terminal. Drop off or Collection?
  6. 6. Pack any fragile items in lots of bubble wrap and place in sturdy moving cartons or similar. You can buy specialty “dish pack” cartons that are stronger for fragile items like glass and china. Place crushed up paper, bedding or cushions at the bottom and top of boxes to give them lots of padding and pack them full and tight. Plates and glasses should be placed upright to keep their strength. Tape up well using 2 inch tape. None breakables like clothes can be in suitcases or trunks. You can buy specialty boxes for pictures. A bike store should be able to give you a bike box and musical instruments and golf clubs need to be in hard cases. How to Pack
  7. 7. After you have dropped your things off at our terminal or we have collected them, we will place and stack them on a 40 x 48 inch pallet. Your items will then be shrink wrapped so they all stay together and will be sent to one of our shipping locations in New York, Charleston or Los Angeles. Depending on the time of year and the seasonal volume we normally have enough shipments to consolidate all the shipments to that destination within a week or two. Palletizing
  8. 8. If you would like to load your own pallet we can send you a pallet, securing straps and plastic cover for an additional $150 on top of the door to door baggage or shared container service price. Keep it as long as you like and when its all loaded call us and we will collect it from your driveway or garage. This is great if you have some awkward or fragile items that you want to make sure fits on the pallet in a specific way or an item that doesn't fit in a box that you want to secure in the middle with boxes surrounding it to keep it secure and safe. Load your own Pallet
  9. 9. We normally load 40 foot shipping containers with all the baggage, shared container, lift vans U Boxes and U Crates going to that destination. The container is trucked to the port, cleared through security and customs and placed in the export area of the birth that the ship is going to dock, ready for loading. At the same time our office is filing paperwork electronically with CBP, making manifests, bills of lading and notifying overseas offices of the container departure and the eta of the vessel. You can also get all the latest information on our tracking page on the web site called UTrack. Loading
  10. 10. Depending on your destination the ship can take between 2 weeks and 8 weeks to get there. Container ships nowadays can carry about 15,000 TEU’s (Twenty foot Equivalent Units) They can travel at about 20 mph and are often only in port for 24 hours offloading and re loading containers. Look around you and realize that almost everything you see will have travelled in a shipping container. Shipping
  11. 11. Once the ship is docked, the containers are offloaded. Depending on the destination the containers will then either be entered to clear customs at the port or in the instance of Europe we take the container to our own customs bonded terminal in Suffolk England to clear customs into the European Union. At Destination
  12. 12. Customs always have a right to look through your shipment the same way as they do when you are flying somewhere. Containers are often X rayed at first to see what’s inside. Every country has different rules and regulations but generally you will need to complete a customs form, declare you are moving residency to that country and also that your items are more than 6 months old. If you are moving a secondary residence, shipping new items, shipping items to a friend or relative, check with our office or better still with customs before you decide to ship as there could be duties and taxes! Customs
  13. 13. Once the shipment has been cleared through customs we will contact you to arrange delivery of your shipment to your delivery address. The to door shared container service includes delivery into your residence so you can tell the crew which rooms to put things in. Our own fleet of trucks that operate across Europe are some of the best looking and modern trucks available. They are all driven by British drivers and have a porter that travels with them to assist on the deliveries. Delivery
  14. 14. Although extremely rare, as you can see it can happen and I’ll guarantee it per Murphy’s Law it will happen to someone that didn’t take out insurance! Our Silver Insurance option covers these types of catastrophes and also if a carton went missing or some boxes got wet.The rate is 2% of the value so if for example you insured all your items for $5000 the premium would only be $100 so well worth the coverage. Insurance will cover you against any outside force damaging your items but not if you didn’t pack it well so invest in plenty of bubble wrap ! More…… Insurance
  15. 15. If the boxes you are using don’t list the cubic feet on them, measure in inches the Length x Width x Height, multiply together and divide by 1728 and that will give you the cubic feet of your carton. Now if you want to work out the volume of the whole shipment, stack all your boxes together into a big square or cube and again measure the longest, widest and highest points of the stack, multiply them together and divide by 1728 and that will be your volume. If you are not sure if your things will fit into one of our service options, then using masking tape or blue painters tape, mark the dimensions on your floor and wall to see if everything will fit in that area. If all your belongings would fit in a single garage then they will fit in a 20 foot shipping container. Math 101 (How to work out your cubic feet) If you are going to use our Baggage, shared container or cheap ship options, your things will be stacked on pallets 48 x 40 inches and the height will be based on the highest point of the pallet so try this at home by stacking your things in an area 48”x40” using a tape measure and masking tape.
