About Shipping Service Costs.
The way you have your car delivered is the biggest factor in the cost for shipping services. RO/RO transport services are usually anywhere over a $1,000, whereas container methods can cost well over $5,000. Container shipping is higher in cost because of the extra space you get inside the container along with the vehicle. The extra space can fill with other belongings. This shipping method can be split with another individual to lessen the costs.
The Least Expensive Transport Service.
The RO/RO method of transport is the least expensive yet very cost effective. The vehicle will be rolled onto a flatbed ship for its shipping process and when it reaches port, it is driven off the ship. The vehicle must be in driving condition and completely empty of all possessions. The only articles allowed inside the vehicle are floor mats, a spare tire, and a car jack. Any extra weight will only raise the cost of transport.
