Two Forms of Vehicle Shipping Methods

You can choose the Roll On/ Roll Off shipping method, also known as the RO-RO or RORO and container shipping is the other method. Which one is right for you? That will depend on what you want out of your shipping.
- Container shipping allows a customer to fill up the container, either a 20 foot or 40 foot container, with a vehicle and all personal and household items that will be needed in your new location. While this method of shipping is the most expensive of the two, you will find that it can be less expensive if you share the container with someone or if you plan to move there and can ship everything together.
- Roll On/ Roll Off shipping method is a good choice if you plan to transport your vehicle with no special circumstances or if you don't plan to ship your personal items over with your vehicle. While choosing this method of transportation, you will only be allowed to have one-fourth tank of gas to allow the ship crew to move the vehicle on the deck of the ship and then off the ship once it reaches the port. You will also be allowed to have a car jack, a spare tire, and your floor mats in the vehicle at all times. Other than these items, your vehicle will need to be completely cleaned out and left empty.
