Shipping Methods

We offer various shipping methods to Vanuatu. The two most popular options are the roll on, roll off, and container shipping methods.

  • Roll on, Roll off: The roll on, roll off method is one of the most popular. Your vehicle is driven onto the ship, securely held in place, delivered to the port of choice, and then driven off the ship. In order for this method to be viable, your vehicle must operable. If you elect to use this shipping method, you cannot store personal items in your vehicle.
  • Container Shipping: If you are looking to ship personal belongings with your vehicle, this may be the best shipping method for you. Your vehicle and personal belongings will be securely held in place and stored in a shipping container.

  • Container Shipping is the most secure overseas transport method since it protects your cargo within within metal walls and a ceiling. Your cargo, whatever it may be, must fit into a 40ft shipping container to use this method.
  • Flat Rack Shipping is an inexpensive open air service that includes securing your cargo to a metal frame before it is placed on the boat.
  • Roll On/Roll Off Shipping is the most affordable shipping option. Your large or heavy vehicle or piece of equipment must be driven or rolled onto and off of the ship.
  • Lift On/Lift Off Shipping is recommended for those with inoperable vehicles or crated cargo. A crane lifts the cargo onto the ship for this open air service.

Satisfied Customers

“I am VERY PLEASED with the shipment for our 1979 Camaro. The vehicle arrived when they said, they called me with a progress report when they crossed the Wisconsin/Illinois border, and then again when they were about 15 minutes from the drop off location. The driver and his co-driver were very pleasant people. I could not have asked for nicer people to transport "our new baby". Thank you A1 for all your above and beyond efforts. You do know your job, and you do it well. This has made my day, week, month, year........... Again, thank you.”

“EXCELLENT! This is the third time, and it still feels like I am a new customer. The reservation and shipment processes are simple and quick.  I was in a hurry the last time I called A1, so they asked me for the best time to call back. I was not expecting they’ll go an extra mile by calling me even after working hours as I requested. They surely find ways to make you feel valued. A1 Auto Transport took care of every single detail of my shipment to Iowa. I do not recall any misses. I am wondering how they train their employees. This company earned two thumbs up!!”

“I was wondering how A1 Auto Transport manages its people. They are so polite over the phone, provide you with a lot of options (even payment cardless options), set your expectations, and most of all, they take real good care of your automobile. I made the right choice to hand my Camaro to A1. My vehicle was delivered just on time to Missouri for my sister's birthday celebration. It was a really pleasant surprise. My Camaro arrived in excellent condition, as if it just came out from my garage.”

“I’ve got quite a lot to talk about, so let’s just begin: My brother’s car had to go from Los Angeles to Phoenix, Arizona to my husband who’s a mechanic. It had a lot of problems, and I figured he’d be able to repair it. I called several other companies and their solution was to tow it to a Walmart 3 hours away, so their truck could pick it up. I wasn’t too keen on that, so I finally called Joe. He somehow managed to get a truck 10 minutes away from my home. He even got my car towed to the location. From start to finish, I knew exactly where my car was thanks to Joe’s texts. I’m really happy about that. The driver took no break during the weekend, so it arrived 2 days early. The area I live in had no space for a truck to move trough, so he stopped at a supermarket nearby. The driver waited for me to arrive and stayed with me until a tow truck got there to pick it up. He was real fun to talk to and very nice overall. If I ever need to transport a car ever again, A1 Auto Transport is my first pick. I’m really glad to have found them.”

“I called A1 Auto Transport to bring home an Austin Healey I bought recently. They wanted to come on Tuesday, but the seller was out of town, so we postponed it for one day later. On Wednesday we completed the paperwork, and it was on its way to Tennessee. The estimated time of arrival was Saturday, and it arrived on Friday. Really fast this company! The car didn’t get damaged during transport, and there weren’t any unexpected events or problems to speak of. Also, I received 1 update via text or phone call from the driver each day, letting me know of his progress. Very professional.”
