Ways to Ship to Rishon LeZion
You will have different ways to ship your vehicle from the United States to Rishon LeZion. You can decide which way works best for you based on your needs.
- Container shipping: It is one of the option that is perfect for expensive vehicles or if you need to transport your personal belongings along with the vehicle. The cost will depend upon the size of the container you choose- 20 feet or 40 feet. As everything is secured inside and them the container is sealed, your vehicle and other goods are secure during transit.
- Roll On/ Roll Off method: This way of shipping is the most chosen way to ship a vehicle from the United States. Your car is driven aboard, safely harnessed in place and driven off the freight ship at the port in Israel. It doesn’t require a lot but you will need to prepare your vehicle for transport, such as steam cleaning your vehicle inside and out and removing everything from the vehicle. As you only pay for the parking bay or space use by your car, it turns out to be the most affordable option.
Some vehicles are allowed to be transported to Israel but it will depend on which country you’re shipping from. You can look up the approved countries and the approved vehicles allowed in the country by contacting the Israel Ministry of Transport.
