Decide on mode of shipment

Shipping cars to and from the port of Los Angeles affords you the luxury of choice between two main techniques; Roll on Roll off and Container shipping. Ro Ro is the mainstream option where your car is loaded and unloaded simply by driving it onto and off the ship using loading ramps. It is wildly cost-efficient and quicker than its counterpart. The only caveat is that it is not suitable for all kinds of vehicles.

However, if you are shipping a high-end car, container shipping is the safer bet. Here your automobile will be loaded into a container that is shut tight for safety. The destination also plays a significant factor in choosing mode of shipment. Keep in mind not all destination ports have the equipment to unload vehicles from the Ro Ro vessel hence forcing you to go with container.
