Car Shipping Costs

International Car Shipping Costs

Car shipping costs vary from country to country and are dependent on the vehicles make and model. Smaller cars such as a saloon or a hatchback are typically under 1.6mtrs high and will be cheaper to ship than say a standard size 4 x 4. The costs for 4 x 4's can be one of two prices and will depend on the overall cubic metre in some cases. To keep the costs simple saloon cars are any vehicle under 1.6mtrs high, whereas the average 4 x 4 is anything from 1.61mtrs high up to 2.00mtrs. There is an exception to car shipping costs with some of the more favourable shipping lines for a 4 x 4 and that is; vehicles measuring over 18 CBM up to 25 CBM for example will be rated at a higher cost than an average 4 x 4 such as a Toyota RAV 4. Your larger 4 x 4's will usually be a Land Rover Discovery III and so on.
