Shipping Method for Cars and SUVs
For all countries, we use the RoRo shipping method to ship cars and SUVs.
RoRo Shipping (Roll-On/Roll-Off)
To ship cars and SUVs, we use this cost-effective method with its set departure and arrival dates. Your car or SUV will be transported onto the ship on wheels, where it will be secured to the deck properly. We also use this method for shipping motorhomes, campers, trailers, buses, and construction vehicles.
Do You Need Marine Insurance?
When shipping cars and SUVs, we highly recommend you purchase the insurance, although it’s not required. If you opt not to get the insurance, you will have to pay out of pocket for damage that could arise. If you don’t want to buy 100% coverage, you can purchase insurance for 50% or 75% of the value instead. We offer:
1.75% of the value of the vehicle for FULL coverage, theft, vandalism, total loss, damage with $500 deductible. Total Loss for 1.25% charge for the value of the vehicle. Coverage begins when the motorcycle or ATV is loaded onto the ship at the departure port. It ends when signed for and collected at the arrival port.
