Automobile shipping to various countries has options that are provided on a regular service basis. Cars are shipped in their own FCL, by groupage service 20' or 40' steel containers, or by RORO service.
The car is blocked and braced securely, to assure there is no movement during transit. If personal effects are sharing the same container, they are loaded first, then a wooden wall installed between the goods and the vehicle. If needed a deck over the auto can be installed to provide more room for possessions.
• Roro Service
Several countries can be served by the RORO method, although the service is not as frequent as the regular container vessel routes. Your auto is driven onto a specially equipped car ferry, then securely tied down and covered for protection during transit.

An exception exists for vehicles manufactured over 15 years or more prior to importation.
