Methods of Vehicle Shipment from the U.S. to Anywhere in Mexico.
There are several forms of vehicle shipment that one can use to have their vehicle shipped to Tuxtla Gutierrez. These include the following:
- RO/RO shipping is a method of shipment that requires the vehicle to be empty with a few exceptions. Floor mats, a car jack and a spare tire are acceptable. This form of shipping is the cheapest. Not all ports allow RO/RO, so be sure there is a port nearby that accepts this method.
- Container shipping allows a person to fill their vehicle with belongings. The remaining space in the container can also be filled. The container can even be split with another person to help lower the cost of shipment.
- Air shipping is also an option, yet it is so expensive that many people are unable to afford it. This method is best used for landlocked countries. Luckily, Mexico has over 40 seaports.
