If you plan on transporting your vehicle by boat, you have two shipping solutions to choose from. The shipping process is best cared for through professionals.
The two forms of delivery most often purchased through an auto shipping company include open air and enclosed transport methods.
The RO/RO method is the cheapest and most common way to ship a car to Uruguay. You will need to prepare your car for this type of shipping. This type of shipping also requires that all personal possessions be removed from the car.

Get the Car Ready Accordingly.
- Check the air and fluid levels.
- Disable the security alarm.
- Make sure there is no more than a quarter of a tank of gas in the vehicle.
- Document the condition of the vehicle.
