Different Shipping Methods
Roll On/ Roll Off is undoubtedly one of the most popular shipping methods when it comes to open transportation. This is the type of transport which is going to allow your car to be parked on the deck of a carrier ship which is going to harness your car to secure it throughout the entire transit. With this shipping method, a few cars can be shipped at once which is why it’s more cost-efficient. However, you will have to empty out your vehicle completely and remove all non-permanent attachments on the exterior. The drawback is that your car is going to be exposed to the elements throughout the entire time of the transportation.
Container shipping, on the other hand, is perfectly convenient if you want to get other personal belongings transported with your vehicle. This is the main reason for which the method is more expensive. However, it also adds another layer of protection so you can rest assured that the car will be safely transported without a scratch on it. It is, however, slower than Ro/Ro shipping as it requires more checkpoints.
