Shipping Method for Shipping Heavy Machinery to UAE
Our ships leave each week from all seven U.S. seaports listed above to the two ports in UAE. The shipping method we use for this is the RoRo method.
RoRo Shipping (Roll On/Roll Off)
Shipping construction vehicles, boats, motorcycles, motorhomes, campers, trailers, and buses is easier with the RoRo method. Featuring more reliability in departure and arrival dates, along with cost-effectiveness and efficiency, your equipment can be rolled or driven up the ramps and secured to the boat. The interior of the ship is similar to that of a parking garage.
Do You Need Marine Insurance?
We strongly recommend you get it but you do not have to. If you find it to be cost prohibitive, you can cover your machinery for 50% or 75% of the equipment’s value instead of the full 100%. Having insurance is a good idea because otherwise you would have to pay out of pocket for any damages that occur to your shipment while in transport. We offer:
1.75% of the value of the machinery for FULL coverage, theft, vandalism, total loss, damage with $500 deductible. Total Loss for 1.25% charge for the value of the machinery. Coverage begins when your machinery is loaded onto the ship until it reaches its destination and is signed for by the point person.
