Container Shipping

Container shipping is an excellent option for high-end vehicles, consolidations or just if you don’t want your car exposed to the elements. International Van Lines offers 20″,40″ and 40″ high cube containers. You can see the container dimensions here.

If you’re shipping a single vehicle, we would suggest a 20″ container. We can load the container at your door, or you can bring it to a nearby terminal for loading. Your car will be blocked & braced in the container. We also offer full coverage insurance for damage and or loss.

If you’re planning on shipping more than one car, we offer consolidation services and will load into a 40″ container. We can stack a total of four mid-size vehicles in a 40″ container. This is a great way to save money if you’re planning on shipping more then one car. International auto shipping quotes can vary based on destination. IVL ships to over 180 countries, but it’s important you contact an agent to go over the details.

Consolidation Service

Out of all the international auto shipping quotes consolidation service is our favorite. Your vehicle will be secured in a container, not exposed and you get to save some money. With our console service, you can drop the car off at a nearby terminal, or we can pick it up from your location. Your vehicle will be loaded into a 40″ container with several other vehicles that will be heading for the same destination.

The downside of consolidation is the transit time. Your shipment may or may not ship right away. If we don’t have enough freight to justify a 40″ container we will hold your car (free) until we do. The good news is that this doesn’t often happen, especially for common areas like Europe, Australia or South America.

The ships are explicitly designed to carry wheeled freight. The vehicles are driven or rolled onto the vessel and then rolled off at the destination. It will be the most affordable option; however, your car will be exposed which most of the time is not an issue.

We would never recommend shipping a vehicle overseas without insurance. Although insurance claims are rare it’s smart to play it safe. The insurance is affordable and will cover the vehicle in case of any damages or loss. Keep in mind that your car will be on the ocean for some time and we can control an act of God.

Our Process

We’ve made our process very simple. Instead of going the traditional route of sending someone to your home for an estimate, we offer a virtual tour option.

Once the video is submitted, your client specialist will create a complete inventory list. 

The turnaround time for a moving quote can be instant or up to one hour, depending on how large your home is. All customers will have the option to self-pack request full packing and storage if needed. All furniture will be wrapped, padded, disassembled, and assembled at the destination. Feel free to request special services such as cleaning services if required.
