Shipping Method for Shipping Heavy Machinery to Guatemala
Our shipping vessels depart weekly from four U.S. seaports listed above to one port in Guatemala. The RoRo method is the only shipping method we offer at this time for heavy machinery shipments to Guatemala – not container shipping.
RoRo Shipping (Roll On/Roll Off)
This efficient, cost-effective, and popular shipping method is often used to transport construction vehicles, boats, motorcycles, motorhomes, campers, trailers, and buses overseas. It features reliable departure and arrival dates that are similar to that of an airport. The interior of the ship looks similar to the ramps inside a parking garage.
Do You Need Marine Insurance?
It is our recommendation that you buy Marine Insurance, as without it, you would have to pay out of pocket for any damages. This is rare, of course, but it’s been known happen with rough seas. For example, you could cover your machinery for 50% or 75% of the equipment’s value rather than 100%.
We offer 1.75% of the value of the machinery for FULL coverage, theft, vandalism, total loss, damage with $500 deductible. Coverage begins when your machinery is loaded onto the ship until the time it is collected and signed for at the arrival port. Total Loss for 1.25% charge for the value of the machinery.
