Once you’ve arranged shipping, you’ll have to choose a suitable shipping method.  There are two available options: RORO and container freight. Both are cost-efficient but handled differently. The first is for vehicles that run under their own power and aren’t damaged, while the second is a wiser solution to ship inoperable or damaged cars, bikes, or trucks. You can read up on their differences right here. Take into consideration that quote prices are for consolidated container shipping.
