Crates to Tonga, Pago Pago, Apia, Fiji, Australia, and New Zealand

We have standard size crates for the islands that we work with but customers are not limited to these sizes. We can ship anything to these destinations but rates vary for different sizes so call us if you have any questions.

At our San Francisco location, we have a free pick up day for shipments on Saturdays prior to the departure of a vessel. This gives you the opportunity to load your crates at your home and we can pick it up to make vessel. Please contact us for more details.

At our Long Beach location, we also provide a pick up service but at a fee. Please contact the Long Beach office for further details.


How often does the ship go to the Islands?
We have 2 ships a month that you can choose from to send your personal goods. It takes 2 to 3 weeks for the vessel to arrive depending on the final destination so you must plan accordingly. Call one of our offices to find out the specific dates of departure and arrival for each of the different locations.

What if I don't have a crate or don't have time to make a crate?
We also offer empty crates upon request that can be delivered to the location of your choice. More conveniently, you can bring your personal goods and fill the crate on sight and then we can take it from there. Please call either office for this special offer.

How soon should my shipment be brought to the office or picked up before the ship is due to leave?
When your crates are ready we'll accept them anytime during our office hours and put it on the very next ship available. If you would like us to pick up your crate, just give us a call to be added to our pickup list. There are designated pick up days for different areas so let us know where you are located and we will make the arrangements for you.

Is there any documentation that I need to provide?
Every shipment requires a packing list and a declaration of value on their shipments. If any single commodity is over $2500 in declared value, a SED must be file with U.S. Customs. If necessary, S.F. Enterprises will file the SED for you. Please click on the link for a copy of our packing list form.

Can you send loose items like suitcases, mattresses, or smaller cardboard boxes?
Of course!! We can send anything, just bring it by the office and we'll quote the item depending on it's dimensions. We can also provide you with cardboard boxes upon your request. From sofas to mattresses and even vehicles, we'll send anything for you.

Anything can be shipped!

Do you offer full container loads?
Yes! We offer 20' containers upon request. We have different rates for containers with building materials, freight of all kinds, and automobiles. Please call either office for details.

What forms of payment are accepted?
We take cash, money order, western union or cashier's check. We conveniently accept payment by phone with a Visa or MasterCard.

Can you tranship to the outer islands like Vava'u and Ha'apai?
We currently can send crates and containers to Vava'u. We will very soon provide services to Ha'apai. Please contact us for further details.

I live overseas and I don't have anyone that can handle my freight from the US. Can I order shipments on the internet (ie Amazon, eBay, Costco) and send them directly to one of your locations?
Yes you can! In fact, it is a convenient, quick, no hassle way of getting your shopping from the internet and getting it to the South Pacific. We have many customers that order commercial and personal goods via the Internet and ship it to either our Long Beach or Oakland Office. All we ask is that you put your name or business name as reference on the shipment so we can differentiate between your shipment and someone else's. Email Lia at sesilia@sfenterprises.net for more details.

If I don't live in the Oakland or Long Beach Area, do I have any options to get my freight to the West Coast to make the vessels going to the South Pacific?
We have depots in all the major metropolitan areas (Seattle, Portland, Salt Lake City, Arizona) that you can drop off your shipments to. We will then make the arrangements from there to their final destination in the South Pacific. Please email Lia at sesilia@sfenterprises.net for a booking or any questions.
