Before the shipping-
Before the shipping, you need to get a finalized quote for the entire process. You need to ensure that your vehicle is properly cleaned in order to avoid any quarantine check-ups and delays. What is more, you need to account for the cost of the shipment but in order to do that, you need to figure out which transportation method you are going to use. You have two options in front of you – Roll on/Roll off and container shipping.
Both of them have merits, depending on your particular need and requirements. If you want to ship your vehicle without any personal belongings then RORO is without a doubt your best bet. Your vehicle six driven over to the ship’s deck using its own wheels. You are not allowed to leave any personal possessions within the car expect the spare tire, floor mats, extra keys and some fuel.
