Although the country of Mongolia is landlocked, you can purchase open air services to deliver a vehicle to the nearest seaport. When the vehicle arrives at the port, it will make the rest of the journey on a hauler for ground transport.
All of the arrangements are planned by the transporter. The shipping customer is responsible for cleaning the car and preparing documents for the Customs office.
RO/RO transport is a form of open air shipping service that costs much less than other options. This method is recommended to dealerships when they must deliver many vehicles together. It is also good for anyone shipping their car a short distance over water. This service isn’t limited to anyone. It is perhaps the most popular way to ship a car to Mongolia despite the lack of shelter it provides to the vehicles as they’re en route from the U.S.
Get the Car Ready Transport.
You must have the car ready by the day of transport. When you prepare the vehicle according to the standards of the shipping company, less risk is involved in the process of international delivery. It even keeps the employees safer as they care for the vehicles on the ship.
- Remove anything in the car. Floor mats, a spare tire, and a car jack are the only items permitted in the vehicle during RO/RO transport. Clean out the interior.
- Wash the exterior of the car. No dirt or grime should exist after you’re finished. You want the vehicle to be in its best condition.
- Take a look at the fluids. Top off anything low except the fuel. Leave the gas tank at ¼ full or less. Fill the tires with air if needed.
- Take pictures of the car after it’s been cleaned. If you know of any damages, make note of them. This information is to be used as a reference during the final inspection of the vehicle. The final inspection is given after the delivery of the car in Mongolia has been completed.
