Costa Rica Shipping & Relocation – Although it has been recently rumored that Costa Rica will restrict shipping of vehicles 12 years old or older they are not enforcing this a of yet and there is till time to ship your older vehicles into the country.
A major advantage for shipping a car or truck to Costa Rica is weekly sailings from various ports in the USA to Costa Rica. The ocean vessels depart each and every week. There are also a variety of shipping methods and additional services that those looking to ship to or relocate to Costa Rica can use.
RoRo shipping to Costa Rica is a term that comes from “roll-on, roll-off” and, as the name suggests, the cars are driven on and off the vessel. They are tied down in their own spots. It looks much like a parking garage. Unlike “lift-on, lift-off,” there is no need to move them by a crane. The benefit of this method is that the schedules run like an airline flight schedule with very clear and reliable departure and arrival dates. In RoRo shipping to Costa Rica, all cars are secured below deck and protected against the elements.
A second option is shared container shipping to Costa Rica, in which multiple vehicles are shipped in a single container, with owners splitting the cost. Another benefit besides cost effectiveness is that it is more widely used. All ports offer shared container shipping. Additionally, owners can ship a few personal belongings in the trunk and backseat.
Exclusive container shipping to Costa Rica is another option. In this case, the car goes in its own container. The benefit is that all personal belongings such as furniture and appliances can go along with the car.
