To calculate a cubic meter just multiply H x W x D. One 2 cubic meter container will only hold 1.75 cubic meters of product due to packing material that we use to ensure the safety of your shipment. This will vary based on what you are purchasing. Many small items take more packing material, where one large item uses more space but requires less packing material per area.
If the order exceeds 15 CBM this is our preferred method of shipping. The order is placed into a huge box car looking metal shipping container all of its own. Each piece of the order is individually packaged. As soon as the order is packed it is then taken to the ship for immediate shipment. This break point in cost will vary based on your final destination.

A few days after shipping we send you the official documentation including the Bill of Lading which is the document giving you absolute legal ownership to your goods.
