We can help you decide the best method depending upon the value of your vehicle and the cost of shipping. Although the quickest method to transport your car is by air but the prohibitive costs aren’t worth it. The other methods include container shipping and Roll on, Roll off (RORO). 

RORO is the most popular method as the cost is only for parking the vehicle. The car is drive onto the ship deck, secured and then driven off at Bridgetown. However, you cannot keep any personal items in the car and have to remove all flammable gases and fluids including air conditioning gas. While in container shipping you can keep your household belongings along with the car into a large 20 feet or 40 feet container. Share the container to split the cost with someone else.
