Methods of Shipping
This is an important consideration as the method you opt for will decide the final budget of your auto shipping. Now, there are two methods for you to choose from – Roll On/ Roll Off and Container shipping. RORO tends to be the one that people prefer the most, mainly because it is a lot cheaper. However, it also provides no protection from the elements and you can’t bring any additional personal belongings with you. You are only allowed to ship an empty vehicle devoid of any personal things and non-permanent accessories as they are safety hazards during transit. When you have household goods or personal belongings to transport with the vehicle, select container shipping. Though it is more expensive get a 20ft or 40ft enclosed container for your convenience.
