Methods of Vehicle Shipping.
Air shipping is a reliable method of vehicle transport and can take your vehicle to any port, even the landlocked cities. However, this method is quite costly. Not many are able to afford air shipping.
RO/RO shipping is a method of shipping a vehicle while it is completely empty with the exception of floor mats, a car jack and a spare tire. The vehicle must be able to roll onto and off of the ship. This form of shipping a vehicle is the cheapest.
Container shipping allows the vehicle owner to pack the vehicle with belongings allowed by Mexico Customs. Not only can the vehicle be filled with property, but so can the remaining space in the container. Containers come in two sizes and can be shared with another individual. Sharing the container will lessen the cost if the other person is paying their share.
