Worldwide Car Shipping | Overseas & International Vehicle Transport

If you’re shipping a car to another country, it’s most likely being transported on a boat. This is a very common way to move not just cars and trucks, but just about any type of cargo you can imagine, from one shipping port to another all over the world. Most of the items being hauled by ship are stored in shipping containers to make it easier to move them in bulk, but cars are usually shipped differently. (Vehicles can be transported internationally by shipping container providing they fit properly and can be secured.)

The most frequently used method for moving vehicles to different parts of the world is a process called “RORO,” which stands for “roll on, roll off.” In simple terms, it means the vehicle is driven (rolled) onto a transport ship and stored for the trip then driven off when it arrives at the destination. It’s a very efficient and easy method to use when shipping internationally.

An important thing to keep in mind when looking for an overseas or international auto shipper is that not every company can ship to every location. As an example, some transporters may specialize in shipping only within the continental U.S., or if they do ship internationally, may only operate in certain regions or countries.

Since this is the case, the first step you should take, even before contacting a company for an estimate, is to make sure they deliver to the part of the world you need your car shipped to. This should be relatively easy information to find—there should be a web page with location information and, ideally, an article explaining the specifics of shipping to that area.

Worldwide Car Shipping: Understanding Options

  • Air Freight - As we mentioned in the first section, most overseas auto transport is done by boat, but that isn’t the only option. There is also air freight available (using a plane to transport a vehicle), but it is significantly more expensive than other available methods.
  • Insurance - Insurance is included as part of the price you pay for shipping. This is an industrywide regulation that applies to all carriers, whether they’re shipping your car to Canada or to Europe. There is a minimum requirement for insurance coverage that must be met by any company that moves cars and it covers any damages incurred at the fault of the company.
  • Personal Items - If you need to ship personal items along with your vehicle, there is a preferred method you should use: containerized car shipping. When cars are shipped, they generally cannot have anything stored inside of them. With a shipping container, the vehicle only takes up  part of the allotted space, leaving room for additional items to be shipped along with it. This is an especially good option if you’re making a long-term or permanent move to another country.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
