What are My Choices for Shipping to Nice?
Shipping a car to Nice should be a simple procedure once you have all of the paperwork out of the way and have arranged to have your car delivered to the shipping port in the United States to begin the international voyage to Nice. Before you can ship the car, however, you need to determine what type of shipping you will be using. If you only need to ship your car and won’t need any personal items or household goods shipped along with it, the preferred shipping method is RoRo Shipping. Your car will be driven aboard the cargo ship, secured into place for the trip, and then simply driven off once it reaches the Port of Nice. Roro is the simplest, quickest and most widely used way to ship cars internationally. If you need to ship some personal items when you ship your car, or if it would just make you feel more secure, you can ship your car inside of a container. Container Shipping is also via the sea and your car would be loaded inside of a large container and then lifted onto the cargo ship for the journey. Shipping via container can take a little longer than with RoRo shipping due to customs inspections, but it is a welcome value when you need to ship your home supplies or just want the added security of your car being sealed inside of a container while traveling overseas. The last option for shipping is shipping by air. Air Shipping is the fastest way to have your car delivered to you in Nice. The car is loaded onto a cargo plane at the airport in the United States and will be flown into the Nice Cote d’Azur Airport in Nice.
Regardless of the method of shipping that you choose, keep in mind that if you have any questions, your auto transport agent will be more than happy to give you all the information that you need. They will also provide you with a finalized cost quote that will detail all amounts that need to be paid before shipping as well as payments due upon receiving your car in Nice.
