Vehicle Transporting Options.
There are two options to choose from when transporting your vehicle; Roll On/ Roll Off and container shipping. In Roll On/ Roll Off method, your vehicle will be driven on the deck of the ship at a port in the United States. It will be fastened down in a bay located on the deck. Once it reaches the Port of Majuro, it will be unfastened and driven back off. You will not be allowed to store any personal items in the car. It must be steam cleaned prior to shipment. Air conditioning gas must be drained and you can only have a tire, mat, and spare keys in your car.
Container shipping is another method to choose from. This method will cost more money but it is more secure. The vehicle will be secured inside the container and then you will have the chance to load it the rest of the way with your personal items or household items before it is sealed up and loaded onto the deck of the ship and fastened down. It is very important that you are there before your vehicle is due to arrive so you can clear up any levies and taxes that have to be cleared before you can drive your vehicle. You will also need to have it legal before you can drive it very far.
