Shipping Methods

We offer several shipping methods to Barbados, depending on your personal needs. At your convenience, we will help you decide on the best method of transport to Barbados. Listed below are the two most popular methods that we offer for international vehicle shipping.

Ship Your Car Barbados
  • Roll on, Roll off (RoRo): The roll on, roll off method is one of the most popular. Your vehicle is driven onto the ship, securely held in place, delivered to the port of choice, and then driven off the ship. In order for this method to be viable, your vehicle must operable. If you elect to use this shipping method, you cannot store personal items in your vehicle.
  • Container Shipping: If you are looking to ship personal belongings with your vehicle, this may be the best shipping method for you. Your vehicle and personal belongings will be securely held in place and stored in a shipping container.

With the experience and connections of A1 Auto Transport, you can get your overseas transport underway in no time. We have been helping our customers ship heavy equipment to other countries for decades and can make the entire process a breeze.

There is no limit to the types of heavy equipment and oversized cargo we can have transported.

General Facts

  • Shipping a car to Barbados involves transporting a vehicle from one country to the island nation of Barbados.

  • Before shipping, it is important to ensure that all legal requirements for importing a car into Barbados are met, including documentation and customs regulations.

Overseas Shipping Methods Available for Heavy Equipment

Several different carriers are available through A1 for shipping big machinery. Customers with enormous cargo and heavy equipment can choose from four different transport ways, though this number may be reduced based on the specifics of the cargo at hand. After hearing about your equipment or cargo over the phone, we will be able to inform you of your options. To help you decide which of our international shipping options is best for you, we've included brief descriptions of each below…

  • Container Transport- This type of transport method offers the greatest security. By enclosing your cargo within walls and a ceiling, it will be safe from inclement weather and other outside hazards. This is the most expensive method yet very cost efficient.
  • Flat Rack Shipping- With this shipping method your cargo is secured to a flat rack that looks a large metal frame. Once it is fastened properly, the rack is placed on top of the ship. The rack is removed from the ship in the same manner.
  • Roll On/Roll Off Shipping- The RoRo method is the cheapest form of transport. It is an open air service that requires your large vehicle or piece of equipment to be operable. That way it can roll onto the ship and off of the ship.
  • Lift On/Lift Off Shipping- The LoLo shipping method is best for individuals transporting large broken down vehicles and crated heavy equipment overseas. A crane is used to lift the cargo onto the ship as well as off of the ship.
