Shipping cars through Port of Orange
Due to its inland position and the fact that it is near larger and busier seaports, the Port of Orange is not a popular destination for auto shippers. In fact, it is not a US Customs and Border Protection designated port of entry. As such, it cannot be used for vehicle importation due to lack of customs vehicle inspectors.
The port is used for transmodal services to transfer break-bulk and container cargo from vessels to barges and vice versa. Auto shippers do not use barges to transport cars despite the potential savings on fuel and the reduced environmental impact. The main reason for this is that customers need their cars received faster than a barge can travel.

We can offer services for shipping cars to or from Port of Orange, Texas since the city of Orange is one of our popular destinations in Texas. Our domestic car transportation services include;
- Enclosed transport. We transport cars in enclosed carriers to protect them from road debris and weather elements such as rain, humidity, sunlight, and the wind. The alternative is open truck transport which is cheaper.
- Door-to-door service. With this option, we can pick up and deliver your car to any location in the US. This method saves you the time and the effort of having to drive your car to or from a terminal. However, this service will cost you more than the terminal-to-terminal option.
- High-end car transportation. Expensive cars such as exotics, classics, vintage, and sports cars require extra attention as even the slightest of damages is expensive to repair. Aside from enclosed transport, we implement other safety precautions such air ride suspension to prevent chucking, and nylon straps - because the normal straps may scratch the wheels or chassis.
