” Once you have initiated this process your documentation will be sent to the shipper and as soon the documents are cleared by US customs your vehicle will be loaded onto the next available vessel. As a result, sole container shipping is a quicker process than consolidated shipping. Although, as your car is the only car being delivered this method is more expensive. “

Shipping Cars, Trucks, and Automobiles Overseas
The team at Auto Transport are experts in every aspect of vehicle transportation and we can ship your car, truck, or automobile anywhere from across the city to overseas. Shipping automobiles overseas may initially seem like a complicated task but we have the expertise to make the process simple.
If you need to ship a vehicle overseas but are feeling overwhelmed by the prospect, here is a simple guide to the options for overseas automobile transportation.
Consolidated Vehicle Shipping
Consolidated vehicle shipping is the most common method used for overseas automobile transportation. If you choose this method your vehicle will be shipped in a shared container with other cars, trucks, and automobiles that are destined for the same destination. Usually, this container only contains other vehicles that Auto Transport is hauling, this way we can ensure the safety of each automobile in the container.
This method of transportation is the most cost-efficient way to ship your vehicle. However, consolidated shipping can sometimes take longer than other types of overseas transportation as we have to fill the container with other cars. If you would like an estimate for consolidated vehicle shipping you can use the Auto Transport free quote tool.
Sole Container Shipping
Sole container shipping is a similar process to consolidated vehicle transportation, however, if you choose this form of overseas shipping your car will be the only vehicle in the container.
Once you have initiated this process your documentation will be sent to the shipper and as soon the documents are cleared by US customs your vehicle will be loaded onto the next available vessel. As a result, sole container shipping is a quicker process than consolidated shipping. Although, as your car is the only car being delivered this method is more expensive.
Roll-On & Roll-Off Shipping
The roll-on roll-off method of transportation is a faster process than consolidated shipping and a cheaper option than sole container shipping. During the roll-on roll-off process your automobile will be driven into the belly of the ship and then secured. Cars that are shipped on roll-on roll-off vessels are not placed in containers.
Whilst this option is both time and cost-effective, as your automobile is not placed in a container roll-on roll-off vehicle transportation does carry a slightly higher risk of damage. Damage to vehicles is extremely rare when you ship your car with Auto Transport but just in case we provide excellent insurance cover with all our orders.
