How to Know if Your Load Is Oversized?

Understanding whether your load is considered oversized can be unclear. This uncertainty stems from the lack of straightforward resources, as oversized shipments typically exceed the standard dimensions for international containers, which are 20 ft or 40 ft. Items such as yachts, buses, and large machinery fall into this category.

If you’re unsure about the status of your shipment, including necessary permits, logistics, or costs, contacting I Love Moving for guidance is advised. We offer comprehensive support, ensuring your oversized items are transported safely and efficiently, addressing all your concerns, and providing the necessary equipment for secure delivery.

How Shipping Heavy Equipment and Large Freight Works?

There are a few ways of shipping heavy loads, but we will show you three of the most common ones that can do the job properly in pretty much any case. I Love Moving owns all the equipment and knowledge to transport bulky loads, so feel free to contact us in case you have any further questions about the means of transportation.

Lolo Load and Unload Method for Heavy and Wide Cargo

LoLo stands for lift-on, lift-off, and the process involves an onboard crane that loads and unloads the freight. LoLo is particularly convenient for bulky loads, but it is also used for containers. Overall, LoLo is considered to be less expensive and more eco-friendly.

Roro Method for Shipping Oversize Freight

RoRo stands for roll-on roll-off, and it is also a convenient way to load vehicles of all sizes since these ships are specially designed to carry cars, trucks, trailers, motorhomes, RVs, and so on. However, the ramp to the vessel’s hull is usually restricted to 15 feet.

Flat Rack Shipping Services

A flat rack is another common way of transporting a load that is too bulky to fit regular containers. They typically have collapsible or fixed sides but not a roof, and they are usually used for boats and heavy machinery.

Frequently Asked Questions About Oversized Freight

How to Properly Measure Cargo?

Many people get confused about how companies measure their oversize cargo. You should measure your equipment or whatever loads you’re shipping from the tallest, widest, and longest part on each end. That way, you’ll get the most accurate measures.

How Can I Transport My Cargo to the Port?

If you don’t live close to major ports such as NJ or LA, you can hire a trucking or logistics company to transport your goods to the port. The trucking company will probably ask about the measures, so you have to try and measure everything before booking a trucking company to do their part.

How Can I Know if My Cargo Fits a Container?

Before booking your transportation, make sure to measure everything so that you have an idea of the size. If something is too wide or tall, you need to be precise. After that, you can check on our blog the standard container dimensions we offer, or you can contact us and discuss everything with our agents to find out whether or not your stuff fits a container.

Are There Any Legal Limits?

This depends from one country to another, and although we strive to provide our clients with the latest and most accurate information, some things don’t depend upon us. Therefore, we always recommend our clients to double-check all customs regulations, permits, and rules of importing at their final destination.

What is the Time Frame?

Overseas transportation can last long, and by long, we mean weeks, and months. However, it all depends on distance, weather, port, etc. We ship from all major ports in the US to pretty much every corner of the world, so feel free to fill out the quote form on our website or contact us for further information.

How to Prepare for the Journey?

Whatever you’re sending abroad, you should clean it and make sure there are no loose parts, or forgotten things inside, especially valuables or documents. Take pictures of the existing condition with special attention to already existing damage such as scratches and dents.

Do I Need Additional Insurance?

Although your belongings are safe and insured while in the hands of I Love Moving professionals, we always advise our clients to get additional insurance, just in case. Overseas transportation lasts for weeks, and sometimes accidents can happen, which is why it is always better to invest in insurance.



For the moving, our neighbors advised us to get acquainted with the services of this moving company’s site. We carefully looked at it. We were moving from 4-bedroom apartment to 2 different addresses in Japan. Along the way, we had unreal number of old furniture, which required to be disassembled and to be taken away to the trash container. All the work was done quickly and accurately. The movers neatly packed needed furniture and then they transported it to the truck on special equipment. When we were receiving delivery at the new place, the guys began to unpack ahead of us and mounted all our furniture as asked. Everything was done correctly, technologically. I am pleased with the result and would recommend this company to anyone who need to relocate quickly and accurately.

For many years living in our 3BR apartment we have accumulated an incredible mountain of stuff in boxes, some furniture, plus an entire home library. All of these were located on the 8th floor with no lift, and we were relocating to Europe! It was difficult to decide which items to leave behind. I got a very fast and correct estimate over the phone, and then they also emailed it to me. Also, I highly recommend purchasing additional insurance, especially for international move! The friendly and professional movers were very efficient and didn’t drag the time. They successfully overcame all the other quests with packing and loading. It was fast, accurate and exceeded all expectations! Thank you very very much!

I have heard the ad of this moving company on the Internet. I liked that the movers advised to pack furniture and immediately said how much it would cost. Actually, I thought it would be crazy expensive, but the actual price is very reasonable. There were a lot of boxes and a large sofa, but well done guys -they didn’t pull the time. Thank you very much for the speed, accuracy, customer-oriented and flexible pricing. In general, I have the positive impressions left!
