Overseas car transportation through the port of Portsmouth
One of the reasons for shipping cars to or from port of Portsmouth is international transport. Vehicles arrive at the port from overseas destinations headed for locations within New Hampshire. Also, if you are in New Hampshire you can use the port as an exit point when exporting/moving your vehicle. Whether you are importing a vehicle or exporting, you need a car shipping company to the heavy lifting for you.
Auto transporters ship the cars overland to the port, where they are cleared through customs before being loaded into a container for shipping to overseas destinations. The main method of car transportation at this port is containerized shipping. The Market Street Terminal at the port is accessible by the general public and handles container cargo as well as project cargo.
When you hire our overseas shipping services through the port of Portsmouth, we load your car in a 20-foot container. Should we have another client requiring car shipping services to your destination, we may recommend that you share a 40-foot container. The advantage of sharing is shipping cost-reduction.
The container shipping method is fast because very many goods are carried in containers. Also, you can load other goods in the container together with your car – a very good plan for those who are moving overseas with their cars.
Overland car shipping services to and from the port of Portsmouth
There are many reasons for overland shipping of cars to and from the port of Portsmouth. The two main reasons are for exportation and importation. Once the car arrives at the port from overseas, you need it transported by rail or road to its destination in New Hampshire. Similarly, you need an auto carrier to carry it to the port for exportation. Whichever is the case, we provide the following services.
Enclosed/open carrier transport
We let you choose between shipping your car in an open truck or a closed truck. For long distances and high-value cars, we recommend enclosed carriers because open trucks expose cars to harsh weather and road debris which have a slight potential of damaging your car.
Port-to-door or door-to-port services
We can either pick up the car from its current location to the port or from the port to any location within the US. We do not have a terminal in Portsmouth, so the only way to cut shipping costs during overseas shipping is to drive to or from the port.
Please note that we ship any type of car, water crafts, and heavy equipment. We are bonded and insured so your car is safe in our hands. We have over two decades of experience in the transport industry and have satisfied many customers as can be seen here.
