Open-air transport is one of the most affordable options for shipping cars to or from Buena Vista. It is the industry standard and the most popular choice for dealerships and manufacturers.
There are two options used to fetch or deliver your vehicle during the transit process:
- Door-to-door shipping will send our representative as close as possible to your residence or the desired pickup/delivery point.
- Terminal-to-terminal shipping involves arranging for a cheaper drop-off/collection at the available trucking depot in Colorado.
The roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) standard handles a bulk of all the international vehicle relocations. The handling team drives the running cars on and off the ship using their own power. Special trolleys help to move the non-wheeled automobiles. It is the most economical transport solution.
Containerized transport helps to secure the cargo from damage by water and other seaside hazards. It also helps to create enough space where you can add spare parts, household goods, or other personal effects to the shipment.
The airfreight option is the quickest international transport solution. We offer white glove handling for all your valuable cars and classics.

- All standard cars

- Agricultural equipment
- Project cargo

- RVs and motorhomes
- Classic cars, exotics, race drags and high-end luxury vehicles
How to prepare a car for shipping
Federal regulations restrict vehicle carriers from transporting household goods and personal items. The list includes aftermarket installations like CD and DVD players, speakers, GPS, and radar detectors.
Take the vehicle for thorough cleaning. It becomes easy to check for the existing cosmetic damage during the pre-shipping inspection. Record the pre-existing damage and share the details with the transporter.
Remove the spoilers, ground effects, luggage racks and other external accessories. Use a protective cover on the non-removable parts to protect them from potential damage. Fold in the side-view mirrors and retract the antenna.
The transporter may not accept an inoperable vehicle unless you let them know in advance. The following steps should help to keep your car in the best shape for shipping:
- Run down the gas to about 1/4 of the tank.
- Top off the fluid levels.
- Use a fully charged battery.
- Check the tire pressure.
- Fix all the fluid leaks and mechanical problems
- Disable the alarm system
