Car shipping to China in a container is by far the most popular method. In 2015, over 30,000 cars were shipped this way from the US. Customers shipping a single car choose the consolidated car shipping option which lowers the cost of shipping. It is the best option for a single new, used or classic car because it allows you to share a whole 40 or 45ft container with other customer's vehicles. Consolidation can lower the cost of shipping your car by over 60%.
