They will also go over anything you need to do to prepare the vehicle to be shipped, including steam cleaning if necessary, cleaning out personal items from the interior or removing accessories from the exterior of the vehicle. The transport agent will also be able to give you directions on where to locate many of the documents and paperwork that you will need. For more information on international customs regulations you can also contact the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency and they can direct you to paperwork and give you information on regulations for shipping personal items as well as your vehicle.

Shipping Options

There are several ways to ship a vehicle internationally. These are the ways you will choose from when making plans to have your vehicle shipped to Libya:

  • Ro-Ro Shipping - Ro-Ro shipping is the most efficient and quickest way to ship your vehicle overseas. Your vehicle will be driven onto the ship and secured to make sure it is stable and will be driven off the ship when it reaches the port in Libya. For Ro-Ro Shipping your car must not have any personal items inside of it, so you will need to thoroughly clean it prior to shipping.
  • Container Shipping - Your vehicle will be placed inside of a secure 20 or 40-foot container and then loaded onto a freight ship. Container Shipping is the more expensive way to transport a vehicle overseas, but you will have room to ship personal items inside of the container as well as inside your vehicle.
  • Air Cargo Shipping - Shipping your car via air is the most expensive way to ship, but it is also the fastest way to have your vehicle where you need it in Libya. Your vehicle will either be driven onto the Cargo plane or will be placed inside of a freight container and then loaded onto the plane for travel.

Your transport agent will work with you to make the transition to having your vehicle shipped to Libya as smoothly as possible. For more information on the cost of shipping internationally and what procedures you will need to follow you can check out this article.

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Libya

It takes precision, attention to detail, experience and a whole lot more to successfully deliver cargo to a country other than your own. So if you’re in need of professional shipping services so that you can ship your cargo from the U.S. to Libya, A1 Auto Transport has you covered. We will help you comply with foreign import laws and use all the best equipment to safely ship your cargo overseas.We don’t have strict regulations regarding what we consider as “heavy equipment” or “oversized cargo,” but it is safe to assume that your cargo is oversized if it cannot fit into a 40ft shipping container. Regardless, there truly aren’t many types of equipment and oversized cargo we can’t deliver. Here are some examples of the heavy equipment we have shipped for past customers…

  • Farm Equipment including tractors, balers, harvesters, backhoes, etc.
  • Construction Equipment including bulldozers, forklifts, dumpers, rock breakers, etc.
  • Mining Equipment including loaders, excavators, haulers, etc.
  • Paving Equipment including asphalt pavers, planers, compactors, graders, reclaimers, etc.
  • Agricultural Equipment including tractors, combine harvesters, plows, spreaders, drills, mowers, planers, etc.

How Should I Have My Heavy Equipment Shipped to Libya?

The options available to you through A1 rely immensely on the size and weight of your equipment or cargo. Some of these options are also more expensive than others due to the extra safety features provided. However, when you call in for a quote, we will inform you of your options and even guide you with your selection.  Here is what we have to offer in heavy equipment shipping options…

  • Lift On/Lift Off is one of the most common forms of open air transport. This method safely lifts your cargo using a crane to put it on and take it off of the ship.
  • Roll On/Roll Off is the most inexpensive way to transport heavy equipment or oversized cargo overseas. For this open air shipping method, your equipment or large vehicle must drive onto and off of the ship using a ramp.
  • Flat Rack shipping is also a common form of open air international transport. Your oversized or heavy cargo will be secured to a metal frame and then placed on the back of the ship. If poor weather conditions are a concern your cargo may be protected with shrink wrap.
  • Container shipping isn’t available for most oversized cargo unless it can fit into a 40ft container. This is the most expensive and secure form of shipping we have available. It will protect your cargo from outdoor elements and criminal activity.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
