Not everyone is concerned with purchasing the ultimate security for their vehicle’s transport. Instead, they find themselves more worried about the price of transport services. Luckily, there’s no need to stress over the cost of shipping.
International auto transport is a cost effective and affordable service. It is used worldwide by car collectors, people relocating, dealerships, manufacturers, and anyone else who finds the need to send a vehicle overseas.
As you spend time on the Internet searching for the right transport company to ship your car to Uruguay, make sure to pay attention to the services offered by each one. You’ll notice that many of the more reputable transporters have similar services listed. Most shipping companies will offer enclosed and open air options along with optional services for added security.
Some of the Common Car Shipping Services.
- RO/RO Transport - an open air method.
- Container Transport - an enclosed method that allows the customer to ship other items to Uruguay with the car.
- Door to Door Delivery - the car is picked up at its home in the U.S. and taken directly to its new home in Uruguay. The transport company will then have the car retrieved from the port after its arrival. Ground methods are then used for the remainder of the shipping process, delivering the car soundly to its final destination.
- Real-Time Satellite Tracking - this service is usually free upon the purchase of other shipping services. It allows the customer to watch the car as it’s en route, tracking where it is at any time of day or night. This gives the customer peace of mind while keeping them informed of the car’s due arrival, even if it changes midcourse.
