Container car shipping to Saudi Arabia from USACost of Car Shipping to Saudi Arabia

One of the cheapest shipping destinations for US cars in the Middle East is Saudi Arabia. Prices on shipping start at around $1,200 per car in a consolidated container. We ship to the ports of Dammam, Jeddah, and Riyadh. Transit times when shipping in a container or RoRo range from 31 to 41 days. We have agents in Saudi Arabia to help with container unloading, import customs, registration and delivery to your door.


Shipping in a container is one of the most safest and reliable shipping methods when moving cars to Saudi Arabia from the USA. Containers come in different sizes: 20, 40, and 45ft. They also fit different types of cars, SUVs, motorcycles and vans. If shipping one car, most customers ship in a consolidated container. It allows you to split the cost of shipping a whole container between 2-3 other customers. If you do not want to share a container, you can choose to ship in a dedicated 20ft container which fits one car. Customers shipping 2 to 4 cars of various sizes can fit the cars in a single 40 or 45 ft container. 

Containers shipped to Saudi Arabia from the US are loaded by our in-house team in California or New Jersey. Upon arrival in Saudi Arabia, they can be unloaded by one of our trusted agents. You can also have your own agent unload, or you can even do it yourself. Get an instant quote on shipping cars, motorcycles, boats or pallets in a container by using the shipping calculator above. 


Shipping via RoRo can be the cheapest method when moving a single running car overseas. Cars are driven on and off a RoRo ship which is similar to a parking structure. Each car is required to have a minimal amount of fuel (until the fuel light is on). Once cars are inside the ship, they are simply strapped to the floor to minimize any movement during the voyage. Nearly all auto manufacturers ship their new vehicles overseas this way (other than Tesla). But while it is a convenient option for modern inexpensive cars, shipping classic cars by RoRo isn't recommended.

Air Freight:

Shipping by air to Saudi Arabia is the quickest way to have your car or motorcycle delivered overseas. Instead of waiting for weeks, your cars can be placed on the next cargo plane going to any of the airports in Saudi Arabia. Car shipped by air are strapped onto special steel pallets and loaded inside the plane's cargo hold. Motorcycles are required to be crated, giving you an option to place extra parts inside of the crate. Our team can provide a customised quote on shipping your car or bike by air from anywhere in the USA - request a quote here.
