International car shipping will save you money in the long run because you can avoid paying for public transport.

Methods Used to Ship Vehicles Overseas.
Enclosed Transport- Enclosed transport is the most expensive way to ship a vehicle overseas, but it is undoubtedly the safest way to get the job done. Your vehicle will be secured inside of a container protected from the elements. This method is also a wise choice for anyone who wants to transport personal goods as well.
Roll on Roll off- The roll on, roll off method is the cheapest way to ship a vehicle overseas and it is also the most common way to do so. Your vehicle will need to be inspected and its condition will be documented before the ship sets sail. All personal items must be removed from the vehicle since they cannot be covered by insurance.
Documents to Bring for Customs.
- Driver’s license.
- Bill of Lading.
- Proof of Insurance.
