Cost of Shipping a Van

One thing you need to keep in mind when shipping a van is that it will cost more since it’s larger and heavier than most other vehicles. The weight of a van will naturally vary by make and model, but they generally are in the same weight class as a large truck or SUV. Just like any type of cargo being transported, much of the cost is dictated by the size and weight of the van, as well as the shipping distance.

Since vans come in a variety of shapes and sizes, this is an important factor to keep in mind. For example, a smaller van like a Volkswagen bus would cost less to ship than a full size van or camper van. This goes double for shipping internationally as cargo space is at a premium and shipping costs generally run higher than in the U.S. due to the added distance.

Shipping a van to another country means it will most likely be transported on a boat, with the exception of certain parts of Canada and Mexico. Most vans shipped overseas are done so using the “RORO” method, which means the van is driven onto the ship and secured below the deck in a cargo area specifically designed for vehicles. When the van arrives at its destination port, it is driven or “rolled” off the boat and is ready to drive.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
