Overseas Vehicle Shipping
When shipping an automobile (car, truck, motorcycle) overseas, there are two choices: containerized or roll-on roll-off.
Containerized Vehicle Shipping
In containerized shipping, the car gets loaded into a metal container. This method is the most secure but also more expensive. Platinum’s containerized car shipping includes:
- Delivery of container to your residence to load your car and take it to port. We do it all so you don’t have to worry about a thing!
- Vehicle loading without ramps. Other companies use ramps, but Platinum doesn’t because there is always the danger of damage during loading. Instead, we have a towing company bring the car level with the container and then we simply roll the vehicle into the container. Then we tie down the car at all four corners, thus ensuring the vehicle will not move at all during transport.
Roll-On Roll-Off Vehicle Shipping
In roll-on roll-off vehicle shipping (often called Ro-Ro within the industry) the car is driven onto one of the decks of a ferry-like ship. In Ro-Ro, the owner of the vehicle drives the car to port and hands it over to the port authorities for loading into the designated ship.

|We never use ramps to load a vehicle into a container. Instead we use a flat bed towing truck to raise the car to the same height as the container and then roll the car into place.|
|After emptying the gas tank and disconnecting the battery cables, we anchor the vehicle to the floor of the container to make sure that no sifting can occur during transport.|
|To maximize usable space inside a container, we sometimes construct a “garage” within. Then we park the car inside the temporary housing.|

“Platinum takes professional to a whole new level!”
“Platinum moving made an extraordinary showing of moving me from DC to Mexico City, Mexico. I was somewhat focused as this was the primary worldwide move that I needed to orchestrate all alone as I had been fortunate to have the USG move me all my past times. I had a tight window, a couple of weeks in which to arrange the move. Platinum was extraordinary in working with me to plan the review rapidly and the resulting pack-out. The group they had for me was obliging, proficient, and fast. There was somewhat of a postponement in the entry of the holder from Baltimore, MD because of a mishap and activity that day yet that was minor considering everything by and large. They additionally combined me with an incredible organization in Mexico, called Balderas. There were just a couple of days postponement at the traditions/port in Veracruz before my stuff landed at my new able in Mexico City. Generally, thanks such a great amount to Platinum and Balderas for making the move easily on their parts.”
