Choose an appropriate mode of shipping

The Port of Oakland allows for, Shipping Container, Ro-Ro, and break-bulk modes of dispatch. Of these three, Ro-Ro is the most popular. Here shippers will get your vehicle shipped by driving it on or off select vessels without requiring the use of a crane. In the event you are shipping a non-motorized vehicle, your vehicle will be loaded and unloaded from the ship by way of towing. Ro-Ro vessels and car carriers have unique enclosed decks that mirror a run-of-the mill multi-story parking garage. Although this method is quite cost-friendly to get your car transported, it does not offer sufficient protection from the elements.

If your discharge port does not have the option of shipping via Ro-Ro your only recourse is the conventional break bulk or container shipping. In break bulk, your vehicle will be loaded in a container alongside other vehicles whereas in container shipping your vehicle is loaded in a 20ft container by itself.

The downside to traditional break-bulk shipping is that your automobile could be subject to cosmetic damage when unloading and or loading, seeing as ropes or chains must be used. One wrong move could easily dent your car. On the flip side, if done right, your automobile will enjoy added protection from the elements at half the cost of container shipping.

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.
