An alternative method of shipping your vehicle would be to ship it inside a container; depending on the size of the vehicle you can ship your vehicle inside a 20FT, 40FT or even a 40FT high cube container. You vehicle will be driven into the container and secured down by straps and chocks; this method of shipping allows you to load the vehicle with personal effects at no additional charge. Once the vehicle is secure, the container is locked and sealed with a unique seal number. Shipping a loaded vehicle by container offers better security then loaded a vehicle travelling by RORO.
