A liftvan is a plywood crate built specifically for international shipments. A standard liftvan is approximately 200 cubic feet (87” high x 87”x long x 48” wide), though liftvans can be made to fit any sized shipment.
Rates for liftvan shipments are generally based on the following factors:
- Where you live
- The weight and volume of your shipment
- Where you live in Israel
Note: Unless otherwise noted, our minimum shipment size is 100 cubic feet.
Volume of your shipment, and therefore final charges, are based on outside measurements of the liftvans, including the pallet.
If you are shipping in liftvans, Sonigo can offer you one free month of storage both in the country of origin and in Israel. If further storage is needed, Sonigo can arrange this at very reasonable rates. Goods will remain in the liftvans while in storage and will not require additional handling.
