The latter is going to be greatly dependent on a lot of factors such the method of shipping, the year, model and make of the car, the car’s size and weight and much more. Additionally, you can choose between RORO shipping and container shipping. The first is more preferred as it’s cheaper but the second is a lot more secure and thus a bit more expensive.
