Your vehicle will be shipped on the earliest vessel and the shipping schedule will be updated as soon as it is confirmed. Prime Autos Japan uses international standard car shipping methods (Roll on/ Roll off & Containerization) for different types, sizes & number of vehicles. Prime Autos Japan provides fast and reliable shipment of the vehicles so that our customers receive their cars at the allotted date and time.
Roll-on and roll-off shipment is the most effective way to ship your vehicle to destinations around the world. RORO ships are specially designed to carry wheeled shipment, such as cars, trucks, semi-trailer trucks, trailers, and railroad cars that are driven on and off by the workers on the deck or by using a self-propelled modular transporter. This is in contrast to lift-on/lift-off (LoLo) vessels, which uses a crane to load and unload cargo. Hundreds and thousands of vehicles are lined up at the docks. The keys are left in the ignition for days past departure for vehicles to be driven on to the ship and then strapped down to make it ready for sailing.
If you are interested in importing only between 1-3 cars, you should use RORO because its more economical as compared to container’s freight which is paid for entire container at once, carrying at least 4-5 vehicles.
Container shipment therefore is more economical in bulk deals only,
Moreover the availability of either option is subject to the destination port as well.
