Best Way to Ship Multiple Cars Overseas 2- Willship NZ

Perhaps you are moving home, perhaps you are a car dealership who has just taken a big order from one client, whatever the reason shipping multiple cars to one destination brings up its own set of challenges.

However, the main choice is essentially the same as if you were shipping a single vehicle. That is, whether to ship via the Roll-on/Roll-off shipping method or the container shipping method.

Both methods have their upsides and downsides so please read on to find out about each shipping method.


Roll-on/Roll-off is generally a great way to ship a car. It is a fairly easy and cost effective way to send you car overseas.

However, when it comes to shipping multiple cars, there are a couple of extra things to take into consideration when thinking about Roll-on/Roll-off shipping.

First is the basic problem of how to drop your car off at your shipping company. If you are just shipping one car, it is simple enough to drive it in. Shipping two cars, on the other hand, means either making multiple trips or using a car carrier trailer. Whether this a good idea for you will depend on a number things including your budget and how far you live from your shipping company.

As well as this, you should remember that while Roll-on/Roll-off shipping is generally the cheapest option for shipping your car, every car that you add will increase the cost. This means that if you ship three or four cars, the price will be three or four times as much as if you just ship one car.

This brings us to the main advantage of container shipping. If you choose to use the container shipping method, you will be able to ship up to four cars in the same container for no extra shipping cost. This is because the space taken up by a container on the ship is the same no matter what is inside the container.

You will also get the extra benefits of container shipping such as a higher number of potential destinations and a slight reduction in the chance of superficial damage to your car. This can also be beneficial if you are planning to ship high value cars.
