Shipping Methods to Choose From
There are two main forms of shipping methods to choose from. Make sure that the method you select suits your needs as well as your budget. Also, keep in mind that not all ports accept the RO/RO method and that the vehicle owner must be present at the time the vehicle is due to arrive.
RO/RO shipping is the least expensive method and it consists of having your vehicle shipped by boat. The only items allowed in the vehicle include a spare tire, a car jack, and floor mats. The vehicle must be drivable so tat it can drive onto and off of the ship.
A container method is a great option for anyone who would like to ship other items to Kaohsiung, Taiwan too. The container can hold a vehicle as well as other belongings. The vehicle can also be filled. While this method of shipping is a little pricier than the RO/RO method, the container can be shared with another individual to ease the costs.
