What is the cost of shipping cars to or from port of New Haven Harbor?
The average cost of shipping a car from the port of New Haven Harbor to Europe is around $3,000. We determine the cost of shipping by considering the following;
- The shipping distances. Overseas car shipping distance comprises of the distance from the current location of the car to the port of exit, the distance from the port of exit to the port of entry, and the distance from the port of entry to the final destination. To lower the shipping cost, some customers choose to drive the car to and from the ports, such that the only distance affecting the price is the one the ship covers.
- The size or weight of the car. Essentially, it costs less to transport a small car. When requesting a quote, we determine the size or weight of the vehicle by asking the vehicle’s brand, model, and year of manufacture.
- The shipping method. Enclosed trucks and open carrier trucks are the shipping methods via road when transporting vehicles to and from the port. While more expensive, the enclosed trucks protect the vehicle from road debris and harsh weather conditions. When transporting the vehicle in a ship from one port to the other, the options are RORO shipping or container shipping. The latter is more expensive, while the former is cheap and the most preferred method of vehicle shipping.
- The operational condition of the car. Overseas shipping of non-operable cars is rare. Such cars are expensive to ship as they require specialized loading and unloading equipment. In such cases, RORO shipping is not an option as the method involves driving the car in and out of the vessel.
