Motorhome Shipping - What Are The Options?

The larger your motorhome the less chance we have to ship it in a container and we will only be able to ship it by roll on/roll services. Roll on/Roll off will always work out the more expensive of the two options as the rate is based on either the overall cubic metre or the linear metre. Container shipping is a set price and you would only pay for either a 20ft, 40ft or 40ft high cube container. However this will depend if your motorhome can fit inside with ease, allowing for ratchet straps and wheel blocks to be put in place for safer transit overseas.
