Freight Shipping Methods

The Roll On/ Roll Off shipping method allows your vehicle to be driven onto the deck of a ship where it is fastened down for the trip. If this is the method you opt for, your vehicle will need to be completely cleaned inside and out, personal belongings and air conditioning gas have to be removed. You are only allowed to keep inside a spare tire, car jack, extra set of keys and floor mats. It is also recommended that only 25% of the gas tank is full.
However, if you have an expensive vehicle or need to transport your household and personal belongings, then container shipping might be a better option.
