When you intend to have your vehicle shipped from USA to another country, it is important that you have an understanding on vehicle shipping costs. Generally vehicles can be shipped via 2 major methods: Container Service and Roll-on-Roll-off Service.
With the container method the vehicles will be packed inside a 20′ Std or 40′ High Cube ocean container. Sometimes it can be most convenient and economical way to ship cars from USA.
