Unfortunately, there is no consistent answer to this question until we know exactly where you are shipping and your timeline to get it there. In general, ocean shipments take longer and air shipments are typically the fastest way to move cargo. Even this, however, can depend on where you are shipping to, the size of the shipment, what you are shipping, and other details. However, the good thing is we will give estimated delivery times if you reach out to us and provide us information via the FREE QUOTE FORM.
Shipping costs can vary depending on destinations, how it is shipped, weight, sizes, etc. In general air shipments are more expensive than ocean shipments. Smaller, easier to handle items are cheaper than large, oversized items. And restricted or hazardous goods are more expensive than those goods which have no restrictions or hazardous properties. However, these are general guidelines. The best way to get an accurate quote is to use our QUOTE FORM so we can give you our best pricing on your shipping needs.
