Shipping Cars To or From Port of Charleston

South Carolina isn’t left behind from all other sea states on the East coast. It is home to one of the busiest and heavy-tonnage handling ports in the US - the port of Charleston. The port has been in existence since 1942, under the management and ownership of the South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA). The entire port is made of five public terminals whose facilities span over three municipalities; Mount Pleasant, Charleston, and North Charleston.

That should give you a rough idea of how huge the port is. The port facilities handle all forms of tonnage, including rolling stock, containerized, and non-containerized cargo - including vehicles and yachts. This makes it ideal for A-1 Auto Transport Inc. to offer its services of shipping cars to or from Port of Charleston.

Statistical Records

The Port of Charleston is one of the busiest ports in the US, ranked 8th by cargo value by 2012. In terms of total trade in tonnage, it is ranked 34th overall in foreign imports and exports together with domestic trading. It is currently expanding its facilities to enable it to handle more cargo and to accommodate a larger number of cargo vessels. Also, a next-gen harbor deepening project is underway to increase the draft depth from 45 feet to about 70feet. This will enable it to accommodate heavier and larger cargo vessels that carry heavier loads like military tanks etc.

Services we offer through the Port of Charleston

The port as it is currently, handling such high tonnage, is ideal for shipping cars to or from Port of Charleston. The port is equipped with facilities to handle heavy tonnage from vehicles, including normal sedan cars, sports cars, luxury vehicles, SUVs, ATVs, RVs, buses, trailer trucks, motorcycles, and even boats of all shapes and sizes. We can even ship yachts through this port.

The port has both mobile harbor cranes and heavy tonnage cranes to allow for containerized car shipping. This type of shipping involves driving several vehicles into an enormous enclosed container which is then loaded onto the cargo ship. Moreover, the ro-ro equipment present on the dock allows for roll-on/roll-off car shipping. In this shipping method, the vehicles are driven onto the cargo vessel for transportation (rolled on). Upon arrival at the destination, the vehicles are then driven off (rolled off) the cargo ship. While the containerized method offers extra protection from the external factors like weather and small stones, the ro-ro method allows for mass transportation of several hundred cars at one go, proving to be a pocket-friendly way of shipping cars to or from Port of Charleston.

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.
