This method is meant primarily for parcels and medium-sized cargo like office accessories.
Roll-on/roll-off is especially suited to cars and heavy equipment with wheels. Loading and unloading are more effortless with RO/RO shipping. This is recommended to clients whose car is functional.
This is the most popular choice for smaller private cars. Here, the container is shared by two or more clients with the same destination, so it’s more budget friendly.
This method is for when your vehicle is the only one in the container. It’s the most expensive procedure but minimizes -transit damage. It’s a popular choice among clients shipping vintage and exotic cars.

The following are some of the most common questions we get from clients who want to ship their cars to Saudi Arabia.
RO/RO shipping is the best method for a working car.
With RO/RO shipping, the car has to be in running condition so it can be rolled on and rolled out of the container. Whether it’s a vintage collector’s item or any rare exotic model, if it still works then this is the best shipping method.
This depends on the method of shipping and the conditions of transit.
The method of shipping you choose will affect delivery time. Furthermore, weather, lockdowns and any human calamity will affect transportation. However, we try our best to deliver within the promised date.
It will be delivered to your doorstep or the nearest pickup point.
Doorstep delivery is available based on your negotiations with the shipper and where you live. If it was not part of the service you paid for, additional charges will be incurred.
Your car must not have any personal belongings inside it. The gas should be drained out, or, in the case of RO/RO shipping, it should be one-quarter full. Lastly, maintain a record of defects and the latest repairs so you can check for damages.
If it’s insured, you can put in a claim or make a complaint and we will look into it.
It’s easier to make claims to cover damage with proper insurance papers and related documents. However, if you have sufficient proof that the accident happened in transit, we will look into the matter and assist you accordingly.
