Choose an appropriate mode of shipping

The Port of Oakland allows for, Container, Ro-Ro and break-bulk modes of dispatch. Of these three, Ro-Ro is the most popular. Here your car will be driven 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 have unique enclosed decks that mirror a run-of-the mill multi-story parking garage. Although this method is quite cost-friendly, 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.

Paperwork

Listed below are the most necessary documents when shipping cars to or from the port of Oakland.

At the harbour:

  • Six copies of dock receipt specifying the make, year, serial number plus model of the automobile to be shipped. It also includes the booking number of your carrier, port of discharge and loading as well as vessel name.

Us custom requirements

  • Original proof of ownership document
  • Copies of the certificate of origin
  • Stamped and signed copy of dock receipt issued by loading port

The US customs will run the vehicle identification number through NCIC system to ascertain that the automobile has not been reported stolen. This process will take close to 72 hours before your car can be cleared for overseas shipment.

Choose a shipping firm offering excellent maritime insurance

Invest in a good marine insurance when shipping cars to or from Port of Oakland. Let your shipping agent explain in detail the tiers of marine insurance covers they offer and to what extent each protects you. The standard one is often 2% of the total value of the automobile and caters for any damage while on transit as well as possible theft. However, if your budget permits, the best maritime insurance is that which covers up to 2.5% of the total value of the automobile. At A-1 auto transport, we offer individualized insurance covers.
