Although open air transport doesn’t provide the ultimate protection against outside elements such as weather and rough sea water, it is known as a reliable form of transport. Actually, many manufacturers and dealerships use this method when they must ship multiple vehicles to a location. Just make sure that there is a seaport near the country that accepts open air deliveries. Contact the Embassy of Latvia for up-to-date import regulations and information.

About Open Air Shipping Services.

For many reasons, open air shipping services are highly desired by frequent transport customers. RO/RO transport is the least expensive way to ship a car to Latvia from the United States. The car is prohibited from having any personal items onboard. The transporter is not liable for any possessions left in the vehicle that goes missing or ends up damaged.

It is very important to prepare the car for its overseas delivery. Take pictures of the automobile and jot down any damages. Check the tire pressure, flat tires or cars missing tires will not be allowed on the ship. The best way to make sure your car is ready for overseas shipping is to have it inspected and serviced at the auto shop before the ship date. Make sure your insurance policy covers overseas shipping, if it doesn’t, take advantage of the coverage available through the shipping service you hired.
