How to use the port for auto shipping
The port is in Gary, a lake city on the shores of Lake Michigan. The port is used for international car shipping in two ways;
- Transporting cars from the state of Indiana to overseas locations.
- Importing vehicles from overseas to locations in the inland US.
Why you need an American Buffington Harbor auto transporter
When shipping vehicles from overseas locations to the port of Buffington Harbor, you have two options. The first option is to hire an auto transporter based on the country the car is currently located. Such a shipper will bring your vehicle to the port, but cannot transport it further than that as they are not licensed in the US. So, you will have to hire another shipper to transport the vehicle from the port to your destination in the US.
The second option is to hire an American-based company that ships from the overseas location to the port. On arrival at the port, the same company will transport the vehicle from the port to your destination in the US. This option is cheaper and saves you from the hassle of having to hire two auto car carriers.
