How Cars Are Shipped to Belgium

Via Ocean Containers:

Shipping in an ocean container gives you the best value for your money. You can ship anywhere from 1 to 4 cars in a single container, the cars do not have to be in working condition, and if you need to, we can load extra parts into the cars or containers. It's also a great idea to ship in a container if you are moving, we can load your household goods in the same container as your car will be shipped in.

If you shipping one car it can be loaded in its own 20ft container, or in a consolidated 40ft container which will be shared with other customer's cars. If you are shipping 3 or more vehicles, the best method is to ship in your own dedicated 40ft container. 

Estimated rate for shipping in a container from the USA to Belgium is $900 to $1,300. Get current costs and confirm the rate for 30 days by using the shipping calculator on top of this page. Transit time in a container is around 12 days from the East Coast and 30 days from the West Coast.

Via Roll on/Roll off:

While shipping your car via RoRo to Belgium is the cheapest option, it is also the one with the least amount of flexibility. Your car must be in run and drive condition, and you cannot have anything inside of the vehicle. However the biggest problem with RoRo car shipping is that not all ports support it.
