Moving to Curaçao

The tropical island of Curaçao belongs to the ABC island group (Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao), the three westernmost islands of the Leeward Antilles in the Caribbean Sea. When you move to Curaçao you will want to take your belongings with you. You can choose to move your belongings in their own moving container or ship them in a joint container (groupage) so you share the costs with others.

The costs of moving to Curaçao

The biggest advantage of moving by groupage to Curaçao is the cost. There is a relatively large amount of people that move from the Netherlands to Curaçao, which makes groupage a good option to transport your belongings more cheaply. You share the costs for both sea freight and possible customs inspections, which will lower the price per cubic metre. Transpack can send you a tailor-made offer with all the costs.

How long will my possessions be on their way to Curaçao?

How long your belongings will be on their way to Curaçao depends on the type of transport you choose. With standard sea freight and an own container, it will take about 4 to 5 weeks. Because groupage shipments wait for a minimum volume before moving, it takes a little longer, on average about 7 to 9 weeks. Please note: the groupage speed depends on the demand. In the summertime (high season for international moves), the demand is high so containers generally leave faster.
