Containerized Car Shipping

This method is also a safest way to ship car to Italy. Car shipping to Italy or any other country, is a simple task. There are many more cargo ships available so they are able to sail into remote parts of the world whereas a RoRo ship cannot readily do so. Cars transported to destinations worldwide can be relocated in our shipping containers that are always inspected prior to shipment. Soft webbing secures each car into place in the container to ensure that no marks are left on the vehicle during transportation. The container is then sealed and secured by our packers to safeguard the car from damage. With these regulations in place high value Exotic and Classic Car Transport is safe in the hands of our Car Shipping specialists.

There are many benefits of using a container ship to transport your car from USA to Italy. This method is great if you are shipping:

Shipping multiple cars - Need to ship a car and your belongings - Need a shared or exclusive container Shared Container - Load items inside a vehicle.

Many foreign students share a container since they don't have to ship large objects. A Full 40ft Container is to be used If a person is moving and needs to ship a car along with large household items, renting a full container would be the logical choice of shipping.
