Manila is the capital of the Philippines and is the center for politics and economics. With about 2 million inhabitants, Manila is the second most populous place in the country. With beautiful architecture, the Manila Bay shoreline, and l lots to do, the city is a great place to live and work.
To get around the large city, public transportation in the form of buses and taxis is available. However, if one is not able to speak the language or has difficulties with the currency, it will be especially useful to have a personal vehicle available. Shipping a personal vehicle to anywhere in the Philippines isn’t that difficult as long as directions are followed.

There are three different shipping methods available for vehicle shipment outside of the U.S. These include RO/RO shipping, container shipping, and air shipping. Below, you will find descriptions for each one.
- Air shipping isn’t typically an option for everyone. It is very expensive and not many are able to afford this form of shipment.
- RO/RO shipping is the roll on, roll off method and it requires the vehicle to remain empty with the exception of floor mats, a car jack, and a spare tire. This is the cheapest form of shipment.
- Container shipping allows a person to ship other items too. The container will contain the vehicle and any other possessions. Even the vehicle can be filled with belongings. Another individual is allowed to share the container space with you which should help ease the costs of shipment.
