Preparing for shipping
It is important to know about the total cost of shipping the car to Ganja and we’ll be able to provide you with a free quote that includes cost of shipping, delivery and custom duties. It is important to steam-clean the vehicle to ensure that it is not quarantined at Ganja. Additionally, you will need to remove all personal belongings, if you intend sending it by RORO freight shipping.
RORO shipping is when the car is driven on board the car deck, harnessed o secured and driven off the ship for clearance by the customs. This is the cheapest method and the most common way to ship vehicles internationally. But if you have an expensive car to transport, container shipping is advised. This ensures that along with the household goods, vehicle is transported safely. However, it is more expensive than RORO.
