1.    Bring Your RV to Us

You can take your RV to the departure shipping port yourself and we will ship it to the destination port, a process referred to as port-to-port. With other smaller vehicles, such as cars, we can come pick up the vehicle from your home, but because RVs are so large, you have to bring it to us at the port.

2.    Choose the RoRo Method

The roll-on, roll-off (RoRo) method is the only option you have due to the sheer size of the vehicle. These large ships are designed for transporting wheeled cargo, whereby the vehicles are driven on to the ship via a ramp, just like a parking garage.

Once loaded on the RoRo vessel, your RV will be tied down securely in its designated spot. This method is both highly efficient and very cost-effective, with reliable departure and arrival dates. It runs on a schedule similar to an airline so you can rest assured it will ship when the company says it will. All RVs are tied down below deck for the ultimate protection against external elements.

3.    We Handle U.S. Customs Clearance

You will be happy to know that we handle all aspects of U.S. Customs Clearance, guiding you through the entire RV shipping process so everything can be handled quickly and legally.

4.    You Don’t Have to Pay Immediately


First, you’ll ask us for a quote. Then, we will send you that detailed quote in an email. Once you get that, you can just place your order and pay us later. With no need to pay right away, you don’t have to worry about financing your shipment just yet. That will come later, and we will let you know when that time comes.


5.    Gather All the Necessary Paperwork


Shipping an RV overseas pretty much follows the same rules as shipping a car. You’ll need a clear Title of Ownership with no liens on the title. If you bought the RV new, it should show your name on the front of the title as the registered owner. If the RV has been sold, both the buyer and seller must sign the back of the title.
