Ask About Container Transport Methods.
As you’re gathering quotes from some of the potential transport services, ask about container shipping services. Many shipping customers use this transport method when the car must travel a greater distance, when they have other belongings to ship, or when they want to provide the utmost protection for the car. Even though this service is more expensive than open air transport methods, it is worth every penny.
Your car is completely sheltered from outside elements while it travels securely inside of the shipping container. You can fill the car and the rest of the container space with other belongings you’re shipping with the car. Of course, you’ll need to call the Lesotho Embassy to find out what goods are restricted from import.
If container shipping services seem too expensive, yet you want the added protection and space for items, split the service and cost with someone you know that might need to ship to Lesotho. If not, the cost of the services is based on the weight of all the items you’re shipping and the size of the transport container chosen.
