A container shipping method is a form of vehicle shipment that requires the vehicle to be set inside a large container aboard a ship. The container and the vehicle can be filled with possessions allowed by Customs. The container can be shared with another individual to help lessen the costs.
RO/RO shipping is a method that doesn't allow for any other belongings to be shipped with the vehicle. The only items allowed in the automobile at the time of shipment are floor mats, a car jack, and a spare tire. The car must be able to drive onto and off of the ship. Not every port will allow a vehicle to be shipped this way so be sure that there is a port that accepts RO/RO nearby.
