Is it Really Expensive to Ship a Car to Puerto Rico?
For anyone who needs a vehicle shipped, we have expert, affordable, and convenient auto moving options. Puerto Rico is an island–or more correctly, a collection of small islands–and so the only way to transport a vehicle there is by ship or air freight.
Since boats can transport several vehicles at once (more affordably! ), whereas air freight is usually reserved for high-value, luxury, rare, or antique vehicles.
- Ride-on/ride-off (RORO): RORO vessels generally carry vehicles in controlled climates. On the ocean, this method is the most cost-effective method for transporting vehicles.
- Solo container: If you have a luxury or classic car you want to protect, you can get your own 20-foot container. This is the safest and most expensive option.
- Container sharing: Your car can be parked inside a shipping container. An average 40-foot container can hold four cars. It divides the cost of shipping an automobile to and from Puerto Rico.
