Moving to Brazil

Moving to Brazil can be done in many different ways. The country is of course so big that there are several transport options available. However, you should do your research very well together with a Transpack employee, because Brazil is not the cheapest country to send a container to and many rules apply!

The costs of moving to Brazil

Due to the immense distances in the country, the costs can be much higher than for removals to other countries. On top of that, port and customs fees in Brazil are extremely high. For small shipments, it is often recommended to look at air freight, because the costs can be a bit lower. Transpack will look with you for the best possible price based on your preferences.
