Once you decide to ship your car, your next big decision to make is how to do it. For Hawaii, there are two main options: shipping your car in a container or crate, or using a RORO (roll on/roll off) service. Both services are secure and efficient, but there are some distinct differences between the two. Here’s how to decide which car shipping service is right for you.
Want extra security? Use a container!
Container shipping is the best way to fully ensure your car’s security in transit. When shipping your car in a container, it spends the whole journey in a protective shell. No rain or wind will bother the car, ensuring that it will arrive at the other end without a scratch or chip on the body. And when the car is loaded into the container, the workers will secure it with straps and bounds so that it won’t jostle and hit the side of the container. The necessary security measures to make container shipping work make it the most secure and safe option for your vehicle.
Running low on time? RORO is the way to go!
If you are in a significant time crunch, then RORO is the perfect solution for you. RORO services cut down on the time that it takes to load and unload a car for shipment. The shippers can simply drive your car up onto the transporter and call it a day! And RORO service is still plenty secure. The shippers will take the time to secure your vehicle and protect it from anything that could cause damage or erosion during transit. RORO doesn’t encase your vehicle in a perfect shell, but it does ensure that your vehicle will stay safe. After all, it wouldn’t be a very good service otherwise!
Conclusion: Container or RORO?
Ultimately, both services are excellent means of shipping your car anywhere you need to go. However, these services have some slight advantages and disadvantages that cater to your needs. So, whatever you choose, you can rest assured that Hawaii Auto Transportation will take excellent care of your car!
