What Is the Difference between RO/RO and Container Shipping?
The RO/RO method is the most universal way to ship a vehicle to another country. The reason many choose this service is because of its low cost. This is also an extremely secure way to ship your car. For this shipping solution, make sure to document the condition of your vehicle prior to the ship date and have it seen by a mechanic.
Another popular option is container shipping, but it is pricier than open air services. Unlike the RO/RO method, your vehicle will be protected against the elements. This shipping service also allows you to ship more of your stuff with the car. Shippers using this method of transport are allowed to use the extra space in the container to store personal items
