    How Much Does it Cost to Ship a Container to Illinois?

    That's a good question! Moving a container to Illinois can vary in cost. Why?

    It depends on whether you're shipping a container from California or Florida to Illinois. Or, you may need to ship your container from Illinois to another state.

    • Is your container loaded or empty?
    • Is it a 20ft container or a 40ft container?
    • Is your container going to port?

    All of these questions, along with several others, factor into your container transport cost. In general, it can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars.

    So, how do you get an accurate container shipping rate?

    Call Heavy Equipment Transport. You'll have a dedicated logistics agent find out everything about your Illinois container move. We find the most affordable quote without sacrificing quality service.
