International Auto Shipping Services
If you are planning on moving overseas, you might be wondering what to do with your car, boat, or motorcycle. Many who move abroad, either permanently or temporarily, would like to bring their vehicles with them for many reasons: it may be more cost effective than purchasing a new mode of transportation in your new area, they may have sentimental value to you, or maybe your company has offered to foot the bill.

In addition, we can offer full insurance coverage for your vehicle so you can be rest assured that your property will arrive exactly as it was the last time you saw it.
We also understand that every relocation situation is different. We offer a wide range of shipping methods so you can choose what works for your budget, your timeline, and your personal preferences.

We take great pride in offering our customers our expertise in heavy haul international shipping. Our various shipping options include:

Shipping goods using containers is a great way to relocate your items with a protective barrier to prevent damage. Containerized shipping means using intermodal containers that are made of strong and durable, weathering steel. They are built to withstand extreme conditions.
Full Container Load (FCL) vs Less than Container Load (LCL)
FCL is generally cheaper than LCL per unit of freight. This is because it is much easier for freight agents to ship a single FCL than to arrange multiple LCLs in one container.
FCL also tends to be delivered more quickly because when the shipment arrives at the port of destination, it is simply transported to the recipient of the goods. When LCLs arrive at the port of destination, however, the goods inside must be consolidated and sorted before being distributed to different recipients.
An advantage of LCL is that it lets you maintain a lower inventory level, which is ideal for some customers. LCL lets you ship goods in smaller quantities so you have less inventory to worry about and you will need less storage or warehouse space.
An important thing to consider if you decide to go with LCL, however, is that you will have less control over the items being transported. With LCL, you do not have a say in what other items are stored within the same container as your items.
Roll-on, roll-off service (RO-RO)
RO-ROs are vessels that are built to transport wheeled cargo such as cars, trucks, semi-trailers, trailers, railroad cars and motorcycles. The vehicles are driven onto the ship at the point of origin and then off the ship at the destination. Every vehicle is braced, secured, and tied down to ensure maximum protection while in transit.
When compared to container shipping, RO-RO is much more budget friendly and is a much easier method of shipment. With RO-RO you avoid having to pay export warehouse expenses that are associated with packing and transporting containers.
The only limitation with RO-RO is tied to your destination. Smaller countries may not support RO-RO international shipping options.
Conventional on-deck shipping
We also offer conventional on deck shipping methods. If you choose this shipping method, your goods will be transported above deck. This means that they will be unprotected from water, rain, and wind.
Because of the risk for complications with on deck shipping, insurance companies are less keen to insure goods shipped via this method. As a result, you might face higher out of pocket expenses.
