Transporting your vehicle.
You will need to decide which method of shipping you will want to go with. Roll On/ Roll Off shipping method is the most affordable way of shipping. Your vehicle will be taken to the ship where it will be loaded on the deck and parked in a bay. Once it reaches the port, it will be driven off. No personal items can be left inside the vehicle when you choose this method of shipping. The air conditioning gas will need to be drained before it can enter the deck of the ship. You can leave your car mats, a spare tire, and a set of keys in your car.
Container shipping is another method of shipping that is better suited for those shipping a luxury vehicle or for those who want to transport personal belongings as well as household items. Once the vehicle is loaded inside the container, you will be able to fill it up with all your personal household items and then it will be loaded onto the deck of the ship and transported. You will need to be present when your vehicle reaches the port. Once it is there, you will need to clear it by paying all custom levies and taxes. You will need to apply for and obtain a license tag and a driving license within a few weeks upon arrival.
