Mode of Shipments

Shipping cars to or from Port of Chicago is done in one of two ways; Roll on Roll off (Ro Ro) or Container shipping. Ro-Ro is the standard carrier method where your car is loaded and unloaded off the shipping vessel by simply driving it. As a result, Ro-Ro is lowly priced and is what most clients opt for when shipping standard cars.

When shipping luxury cars that demand added protection, container is a more fitting option. This is an enclosed carrier method that involves securing and bracing your car inside a 20 ft. container before setting sail. While you may have to pay a bit more than you would for Ro-Ro, your car will be safe from harsh weather elements that could end up marginally devaluing your automobile.

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.
