Getting your vehicle to Jamaica can be done in two ways, RORO (roll on/roll off) or by container, of the two ways of transport, RORO is by far the simplest and more affordable method of getting your car to Kingston, Jamaica. Cars are driven directly into the specialised vessel and secured to the car decks inside. These vessels are designed to safely house thousands of cars inside. Once they arrive, the cars can simply be driven off and away to their final destination.
The containers method will generally cost more, and is used for vehicles that are less standard or of a very high value. Containers are sealed for the journey, so they are very secure. Along with the vehicle you are usually allowed to put other items in the container, if there is space. Details and restrictions vary from vessel to vessel and company to company, so contacting us for more details is desired if this is an option you require. RORO vessels do not allow any personal belongings to be stored in the cars they ship.
