Methods of auto freight shipping.
- Roll On/Roll Off (RORO): Most of the people select this method to ship their vehicle at affordable prices. In this method, vehicles are driven on and off the freight vessel. There are ramps which makes the process of driving vehicles easily. It is one of the most cost-effective and convenient ways of getting your vehicle shipped to Sri Lanka.
- Container Car Shipping: This method is better when not just your car but other personal items and household goods need to be shipped to Galkissa. This container is generally around 20ft-40ft. After placing the vehicle, it is harnessed and secured to minimize movement that can damage the vehicle. However, it is perfect for expensive and luxury vehicles.
Though all cars that are shipped have basic insurance but in case you need to insure your vehicle for more, talk with A1 Auto Transport service, and we’ll be of assistance. From picking your car to delivering it in Galkissa, we’ll be with you at every step. To know more about the processes and regulations, contact the Sri Lankan embassy in USA.
