How long do I have to wait for shipping date of my container?
Every container is reserved for a particular customer and shipped on a date specified by them. We do ask for 7-10 day lead on the reservation date – of course the more time we have, the better we can schedule everything. Please remember that dates are easier to get at some periods and a lot harder at another – i.e. it would be easier to get a date in June than in November, the busiest time of year.
