How do costs vary based on the method of shipping to Norway?
Roll-on/roll-off – Recommended for working vehicles, as your car will be driven onto the shipping vessel and secured for transport in a large cargo area, similar to a parking garage. The only added fees are customs clearance charges, making this our most budget-friendly option.
Shared container service – Multiple vehicles are loaded together in one 40ft. container using our industry-leading steel loading system. While there are additional fees compared to our Roll-On/Roll-Off service, you’ll share the added costs of shipping in a secure enclosed cargo container with other vehicle owners. These fees include customs clearance, terminal handling, as well as trucking and unloading charges.
*You might experience a longer wait before your car ships out, as we must wait until the container reaches capacity before shipping. While there might be a longer wait, you’ll have the added security of shipping your vehicle in a fully enclosed container.
Full container load – Similar to our shared container service, your vehicle will be shipped in a fully enclosed 20ft container dedicated solely to your car. You’ll have the advantage of not having to wait for container capacity before shipping, but won’t be able to share the added costs of terminal handling and unloading charges with other vehicle owners. However, there are many advantages to enclosed container shipping – they offer a high level of security, since they are fully enclosed. Your investment will be protected from the weather and any other damaging elements throughout its journey.
Our shipping specialists will document your vehicle’s condition upon arrival – including the loading process onto the container – with photo documentation which will be available online for your convenience. We utilize an industry-leading steel loading system that doesn’t rely on outdated wood and nails, reducing the risk of damage to your vehicle when loaded into the container.
After your car is loaded and secured, the container door will be locked and its contents won’t be accessible to anyone until its arrival at the final destination. Since your vehicle will be secured in a fully enclosed container, we invite you to pack and transport additional items inside the vehicle. However, please make sure everything is loaded securely, as we won’t be responsible for loss or damage of any kind.
Once your vehicle arrives at its final destination in Norway, the container will be accessed by our agent, who will once again document the vehicle’s condition and unloading process with photo documentation. In comparison to our Roll-On/Roll-Off Service, container shipping will be more expedient, due to our frequent weekly departures.
