You want to have things shipped to, for example, Curaçao. However, you are unsure whether you should book a groupage shipment or a shipment via our special service If it Fits, it Ships. What is the difference?
The difference between Groupage and If it Fits it Ships is the way of packing the goods that you want to have shipped. When you order an If it Fits, it Ships shipment, you choose to ship your goods within a predetermined format: a 0.5m3 box or a 1m3 box. You are completely free what you put in these dozen, but not everything will fit, because the size of the boxes is limiting.
With groupage you are not bound by a fixed. You message a shipment and all boxes you send are added together for a total size. This amount of cubic meters is shipped in total in one of our sea containers and can optionally be picked up at your home at an additional cost and delivered on location. For example, if you have a large table lamp that must be brought along or a sofa, that is no problem at all.
A second difference is the delivery time. The service, if appropriate, depends on the remaining space in sea containers. As a result, it may take some time to ship your goods. The delivery date cannot be determined in advance.
After all, the service you can expect is a difference. At If it Fits, it Ships you have to deliver your goods yourself and repack them in the m3 moving boxes. You also have to make a packing list yourself. You pay in advance. With groupage you can choose to have the goods picked up and delivered. The packing list is made by us and you will receive your final invoice after delivery.
