Typical Methods of Shipping a Vehicle into Guyana
There are few methods of shipping a vehicle available, but two are certain to do the trick and less costly than other methods. Container and RO/RO shipping are the most popular choices.
- RO/RO shipping is the method of shipment that requires the vehicle to roll on and roll off of the ship. The vehicle must be empty with a few exceptions. This is the cheapest shipping method.
- Container shipping allows a person to select from a couple different sizes. The vehicle will be shipped within the container and the vehicle can be filled with belongings permissible by Guyana Customs. The container space not filled by the vehicle can also be filled with property. Two people can share the container which will help to reduce shipping costs.
Air shipment is another method of vehicle shipment. However, its high price is almost impossible for most to pay.
