RORO method

RORO shipping is Roll-On Roll-Off shipping. This is the most cost-effective type of shipping and therefore the most popular way people ship their vehicles. This means that the vehicle is drove onto the ship on its own wheels. The Vehicle will then be secured with straps specifically designed for the vehicle. Then it will be driven off the boat at the arrival port where it will await pickup.

Container method

Container shipping is one of the other methods of shipping. Although more expensive than RORO container shipping is a bit safer. In container shipping your vehicle will be put into a container and strapped down. When container shipping there are two options, exclusive container shipping and shared container shipping. Exclusive container shipping is more expensive, but your vehicle will be in its own container. Most people will do this when shipping exotic or classic cars. Shared container shipping means that your vehicle will be stored with other vehicles. Your vehicle will be unloaded at the arriving port and await pickup.
