I see a potential business opportunity, the sticking point is figuring out how to plug into the globalized container shipping business, and as cheaply as possible.
I want to be able to pack a 20' container with a used car and a bunch of household odds and ends (mostly used clothing). I then want to ship this container from Halifax to Dubai.
Where to look for this shipping service - who can provide a container and then ship it for me? What sort of pricing to expect for this? What is the "gotcha" that n00bs always screw up when trying to do this? What sort of paperwork is needed?
Thanks for any advice pointing me the right way!
