The Details Of Moving Cars Overseas


In terms of the process of delivery, the main difference between international and continental auto transport is that the carrier must be able to safely accommodate delivery over a much longer distance, usually by boat or air freight. Both methods are often supplemented with standard auto transport services on either end of the delivery to move the vehicle from inland to port and port to inland. Air freight is an expensive option and is typically reserve for luxury, exotic and high end vehicles.


Prices for moving vehicles between countries can vary greatly. For more information on what it costs to ship a car overseas refer to this article.


International Air Transport & Ocean Shipping For Autos


Both air freight and ocean transport for cars often involve “roll on/roll off” service, also referred to as RoRo. This is just a term used to denote that the vehicle is driven onto the boat or plane, secured for delivery, and then driven off when it arrives. Other variations of the service include containerized shipping for boats, crated transport for motorcycles, and lift on/lift offloading.
