The only way you can rest certain that your car will safely make its way from the United States to the country of Uruguay is by hiring professional transport services.
With their experience and quality shipping gear, they secure the vehicle according to the type of shipping services purchased and safely begin the car’s safe delivery overseas. They also provide their help as you prepare for the transport, making sure that your car complies with the import laws of the nation so that it is approved for the import by Customs.
It is much too difficult to put an exact figure on the cost of shipping a car to Uruguay before details about the vehicle are acknowledged. A transport company will ask that you either call or fill out a form on their website to receive an estimate based on the information you provide them with. By calling for your quote, you can ask questions and take guidance from the customer service rep on the phone. They will work with you to find transport services within your budget.
The Differences of RO/RO Transport and Container Transport.
There are two major forms of auto transport that most shipping customers purchase. One is an enclosed service and the other is an open air service. Although one provides more protection than the other, both are deemed as reliable ways to ship a car internationally.
Unfortunately, not all seaports accept the open air services often called RO/RO transport. Call the Embassy of Uruguay to find out what ports forbid this form of shipping service. Your transporter will arrange your shipping process accordingly if open air services are preferred. If this is your chosen delivery method, have the car cleaned out completely before the date of transport.
Container shipping methods are accepted at all ports who deal with imports and exports. This transport method secures a car inside of a large container in your choice of size. The car and the rest of the container can contain other goods you’d like to have shipped to Uruguay as long as they aren’t restricted by foreign policy. This shipping method costs more than RO/RO transport. Open air services usually cost anywhere from $200 to $1,000, whereas enclosed methods can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $5,000.
