Best Ways to Ship to Kiribati
With the available access to open sea ports along the coastline of Kiribati, the most economical way to have your vehicle shipped to the country will be by sea. You can choose from either Ro-Ro Shipping or Container Shipping. If you don’t have any personal household items to ship with the vehicle, Ro-Ro is the least expensive and quickest way to ship overseas. You’ll need to prepare your vehicle for Ro-Ro Shipping by having it thoroughly cleaned inside and out and you’ll need to ensure that no personal items or paperwork are left in your car prior to shipping.
If you have items that will need to be shipped along with your vehicle then your best choice for shipping will be in a container. Container Shipping allows for your vehicle as well as any items you need to ship with it to be loaded into a secured container and then transported overseas on a freight ship. The time for container shipping may take a little longer than when using Ro-Ro but it is very beneficial when you are relocating and need to have your personal household items shipped as well.
