Shipping Methods Available
There are two shipping methods that are commonly used for vehicle shipment into Brazil. Keep in mind that being a landlocked country, vehicle shipment will be to a nearby port and as the owner, it is crucial to make arrangements for the vehicle's pickup on the day of its arrival.
RO/RO shipping is the less costly of the two methods. It requires that the vehicle drives onto and off of the ship. The vehicle must be empty at the time of shipment with the exception of floor mats, a spare tire, and a car jack.
Container shipping is chosen by those who wish to ship other belongings too. The vehicle will fit into the container, and both the vehicle and the car can be filled with property. The container can be shared with another person which will help ease the costs.
