      Options for Car Shipping to Saipan

      Shipping a car to or from Saipan, which is a U.S. territory in the Pacific Ocean, is possible through a variety of transport options.

      Roll-on/roll-off (RoRo service)

      RORO (Roll on Roll Off) is the simplest and cheapest way to ship vehicles. This method applies to any vehicle that is in running condition. Once the car has been loaded onto the ship, it is strapped to the deck so it doesn’t move during transport. Once it is loaded, it is strapped to the deck to ensure it stays fixed.

      Container Shipping

      Enclosed container shipping offers extra protection for high-end vehicles. Containers are loaded onto the vessel and are then unloaded by cranes once they arrive at their destination. Although more expensive, this method is considered the safest and fastest.

      • Shared Container Service: Each vehicle is securely loaded into an enclosed ocean container, along with several others that share in the added shipping costs.
      • Full Container Load: Enjoy the advantage of a fully enclosed shipping container that will contain only your vehicle and be transported to Saipan in a 20ft container. Full container shipping to Saipan is faster, as well as safer.

      Terminal to Terminal Car Shipping

      Terminal to Terminal Car Shipping provides a cost-effective option for vehicle owners who are looking to save money on their shipping expenses. Driving to a nearby terminal will allow you to reduce your ground transportation costs. There, your car will be checked by our car shipping experts and transported to the terminal of your choice.

          Pick-up and Delivery Ports

          The vehicle pickup locations are situated on the US mainland that include Long Beach and Oakland in California and Seattle in Washington. These ports serve as starting points for the vehicle shipment, and the vehicle will be transported to the Port of Saipan, the delivery port. The Port of Saipan is located in Saipan, the capital of the Northern Mariana Islands.

          Some Precautionary Measures to Consider

          When shipping your car, there are many things to consider, some of which may charge you a huge penalty or may cause the return of your car from the port, such as:

          Wash Your Vehicle
          The outside of all vehicles must be clean so that we can do a vehicle survey at the loading port. Dirty vehicles can’t be shipped. We won’t be able to ship your vehicle until it’s been cleaned at your expense and reinspected by the USDA.
          Remove all personal Belongings
          Only permanent equipment and accessories are allowed to be shipped in the car. Loose items, such as radios, CDs, tape players, telephones, power boosters, speakers, ornaments, covers, roof racks, alarm systems, etc., should be removed before shipping.
          Cleaning Your Vehicle’s Undercarriage
          You need to clean your vehicle’s undercarriage before shipping it to Saipan to prevent the introduction of invasive plants, animals, fungi, and microorganisms. It can be done by steam cleaning or any other thorough cleaning method.
          Empty fuel tank
          Please deliver your vehicle with 1/4 tank or less of fuel. Call us for special shipping instruction if your vehicle run on Alternative fuel like propane, electric, natural gas, etc.
          Remove Fire Extinguishers
          The point states that fire extinguishers must be removed before shipping the vehicle. It is because federal regulations do not allow fire extinguishers to be shipped with the automobile.
          Electric Vehicles Preparation
          The battery of an electric vehicle must have a minimum charge of 45% and a maximum of 50% for shipment. Any deviation from this will result in rejection.
