shipping building materials

Post New Topic

I would like to ship building materials to freeport to build a home. I have an architect and engineer in Freeport that are working with me. I would really like to be able to work out of the container while I build-- to have some security of the materials. Does anyone have experience with this? Should I buy a container? or can one be rented? What are the best shipping companies to work with? What are all the associated fees that I should expect?

It is always good to have a private container of 40 feet. You'll need to store more than your materials. Thinking of tools and more.
Do not expose anything that is not too heavy or to big to carry, because it will get feet.
You cab buy a container with the freighters. We did that a few times already.
To unload your materials, you will get a few days, afterwards they charge rent.
