Unless you provide them with some information, giving an exact price on the transport is difficult. Tell them about the car and where the car will ship to Italy from.
About the Container Shipping Method.
Container shipping services offer the ultimate security against outdoor elements during its long trip to Italy from the U.S. There are some stipulations for those using this method. The transport company will gladly explain them. However, there is another plus to this shipping service.
To make sure you have enough space for the car and whatever else you may ship over, pick the appropriate container size. The space in the smallest shipping container may be more than you need, so ask customer service for their suggestion. If you are moving with other people, see if they would be willing to split the cost of the container and space. All items packed away inside the shipping container should have the approval of Italy.
