Methods of shipment.
As Monaco is close to the Mediterranean Sea, shipping to Monte Carlo is easy. However, the freight cost of will depend upon the method that you select of shipping your vehicle. Most commonly used Roll-on/Roll-Off is the cheaper method, where your car along with others are driven on the deck and harnessed. At the port of delivery, it is driven off. Thus, you are not allowed to keep any personal items.
You are required to adhere to the rules which include keeping a quarter-tank of gas, spare tire and set of extra keys. Nothing else will be allowed. However, there are no specific rules like these if you hire a 20 feet or 40 feet enclosed container to ship your vehicle. Though container shipping is more expensive, it ensures no damage or pilfering as the container is sealed. Contact the Department of Transport and Communication in Monaco for further details.
