International car shipping companies

When hiring an international car shipping service, it is important to look for a renowned service, rather than opting for the cheapest quote. Always be sure to read auto transportation reviews and learn everything you can about the company’s services. Also, be sure that the company will obey the various laws relating to car imports and exports.

International car shipping services

Most international car shipping companies offer one or more of the following services:

Ocean freight auto shipping container – Ocean freight shipping companies can load anywhere from one to four vehicles in one container. Shipping multiple vehicles in a single container help minimize the costs. When shipping a vehicle by ocean container, the car does not have to run or drive. Shipping companies usually do a weekly vehicle consolidation.

Roll-on / Roll-off services – One of the most common methods for shipping oversize vehicles such as RVs, boats, buses and machinery, is roll-on/roll off shipping by ocean. In order to make use of this service, the vehicle being shipped must be in working condition.

Air freight – This method is the fastest way to get your vehicle to its destination. Your car will be collected from one airport and delivered to the airport closest to the destination. Optionally, vehicles may be crated for this international car shipping method.
