Container shipping is a great transport method for anyone who wants to ship a car to Jamaica safely. Even though this particular shipping service is a bit more costly than open air methods, it is a lot more convenient to some. For instance, you will be able to choose between several container sizes and your possessions can be packed inside the vehicle and remaining container space.
All belongings will need to be approved by the country. If you do not need all of the space provided within a shipping container, you can split the space and cost of the transport method with another individual.
Since the car is secured inside the shipping container, it is safe from poor weather conditions and any other harsh elements. Being transported over the ocean is risky no matter what type of cargo is aboard the ship.
What Happens When the Car Arrives in Jamaica?
When your car is scheduled to arrive in Jamaica, make sure you are present at the port it will be delivered to. None of the seaports will hold imported goods, so make sure you have a ride arranged that day. When you finally have the automobile in your possession again, check it over for damages. If you happen to notice any harm that wasn’t there prior to the vehicle’s lengthy journey, inform the transport company.
All legitimate overseas transporters are required to carry insurance. Although it is rarely ever needed, this insurance coverage is essential to all successful transports. If any damage was acquired while the vehicle was in the transport company’s care, all repairs and replacements will be paid for.
