Mercedes 300SL Gullwing shipping overseas in a containerAny time you are shipping more than one car at a time, your best option is shipping in a container. Since the first container was shipped in 1956, it remains as the most efficient and environmentally friendly way of moving goods overseas. Which is why ocean containers are the preferred method of shipping cars to the Middle East. Any type of car can be loaded and shipped in a container. Sedans, coupes, SUVs, pickups, minivans, you name it. Depending on the size of the vehicles, we can fit up to 6 cars in a single container using our extensively developed and tested loading techniques. Unlike other car shipping companies, we do not use chains in our containers because they will damage your car during transport. Our custom loading techniques allows us to minimize waste, and ensure your vehicles are properly secured during shipping. 

Each car is strapped in the container using the optimal mounting point. A frame is built around the vehicles on the lower level, providing extra space for other cars, goods, motorcycles or auto parts in the container. No matter the car, or destination, we use the best material available to ensure your car arrives overseas in the same condition we received it in.
