Any person shipping their automobile to a strange country is going to fear that it may not be in their best interest.
If you hire a loyal and well thought-of overseas shipping company, sending your car to the country of Panama through the experts is your wisest option. Not to mention, shipping services are reasonably priced and cost effective.
Following your completion of finding a reputable transporter to trust with your car’s shipping process with, you must decide on the best transport method or services for your car. There are two common transport methods that most customers tend to choose from. These are RO/RO and container transport services. Both of them are wonderful ways to transport a car to Panama, but RO/RO shipping is an open air service that tends to cost much less.
Benefits of RO/RO Shipping.
- This open air service is less costly than most other services.
- It is a secure way to ship a car and the only way to ship several cars to a location at once.
- Many dealerships and manufacturers use this open air service to ship multiple cars at once.
- All shipping services come with insurance coverage free of charge to offer more protection for the car.
To figure out the best shipping services for your future transport, ask the specialists for their suggestions. It is also wise to find out what your taxes and duties will be for the import so that you can calculate all the costs before confirming a transport date. Contact the Embassy of Panama to find out the import laws and tax rates currently in place.
