Car Shipping Process

International car shipping is a different process than shipping a car domestically. From the method of loading and shipment to the paperwork and licensing required to operate internationally, there are many more legal and logistical hurdles, even in addition to the longer distance.

In terms of the process of international car shipping, the main difference between overseas and continental auto transport shipping services is that the car carrier must be able to safely accommodate delivery over a much longer distance, usually byboat or air freight. Both methods are often supplemented with standard international vehicle shipping 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.

Overseas Air Transport & Ocean Shipping For Autos

Both air freight and ocean transport for shipping 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 to ship a car overseas, and then driven off when it arrives. Other variations of the service include containerized international car shipping for boats, crated transporters for motorcycles, and lift on/lift offloading. We ship out of all the major ports in the United States for container shipping.

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.
