Using Salem Vehicle Transport Companies
Prior to shipping to and from Salem, there are some industry tips to keep in mind:
- Read the contract in its entirety: This is important to ensure that you are not signing or agreeing to something that you know you don’t feel comfortable with. It actually doesn’t hurt to have a second set of eyes on the contract as well.
- Ask about acceptable forms of payment for shipping: This way, you don’t get to the delivery portion of the order and attempt to pay with a credit card that the company in question doesn’t take.
- Go open-air for the most affordable option: If you want to ensure that shipping remains budget-friendly, then opt for open air shipping if your vehicle is okay in the elements.

International Shipping to/from Salem
The RoRo method is often employed when transporting a car over an ocean due to it being cheaper and simpler than the alternative. However, because there will be other cars near it, there is a slight risk that bad weather conditions may cause them to bump into each other.
If you’d like to avoid such a situation and to strap your car in place as securely as possible, you can use a container. The downside to this method is the extra cost, but this can be mitigated if you add some of your belongings with the car. Of course, everything must be tightly secured. If an object starts moving, it will pose a threat to the other items inside the container.
