Container shipping is a little pricier but can be split with another individual if sharing the container chosen. There are several container sizes to choose from depending on how much is being shipped with the vehicle. The vehicle can be filled with property as well as the remaining space in the container. Just make sure that there property being shipped with the vehicle is acceptable by Brazil Customs.

All vehicles must pass an emissions test to make sure that it is within the country's standards. Otherwise, shipment will not be permitted.
There will be forms of documentation needed as well. These may include:

- proof of ownership.
