How to Transport Your Vehicle from the U.S. to Mexico City.
Whether you are planning to reside in Mexico City or intending on staying there for a long while, having a personal vehicle to travel in will prove to be beneficial. To ship a vehicle to Mexico City, you have several options. Two of them are much more practical than the other.
Air shipping is a reliable method of vehicle transport and can take your vehicle to any port, even the landlocked cities. However, this method is quite costly. Not many are able to afford air shipping.
RO/RO shipping is a method of shipping a vehicle while it is completely empty with the exception of floor mats, a car jack and a spare tire. The vehicle must be able to roll onto and off of the ship. This form of shipping a vehicle is the easiest on the pocketbook.
Container shipping allows the vehicle owner to pack the vehicle with belongings allowed by Mexico Customs. Not only can the vehicle be filled with property, but so can the remaining space in the container. Containers come in two sizes and can be shared with another individual. Sharing the container will lessen the cost if the other person is paying their share.
Make sure that you are present at the correct port on the day the vehicle is due to arrive. The port cannot hold the vehicle for you. Also, contact the Embassy of Mexico to learn more about the restrictions and regulations for shipping a vehicle to Mexico City. They will update you with all of the current information needed.
