A few months ago weknow that was to ship a vehicle to another continent and today we know it’s and we are going to explain you how are we gonna do it.
There are two ways to send your vehicle in a ship:
- with a container
The first option, the container, is where the most of the goods of the world are transported, we normally see them in the ports or in the trains. Its a really secure option because the same owner with someone from the personal port and a notary put the vehicle in the container, close it and seal itof you, and its not gonna be open again till the owner repeat the same operation with the notary in the destination port.
There are different containerbut in no one fits our Cactus! with his almost 3 m high 🙁
The second option,, that you drive your car into the pier and leave it there, you give the keys to some personal from the port and they are responsible to load your vehicle in the ship and move it if its necessary in the ports where the ship is gonna stop during your travel. You can read a lot of in internet, some end good with any problem and some end with broken locks and from the equipment and/or baggage. there are insurances but rarely afford all the damage and for sure not the discomfort and lost of time….
Wehave any option like i say it before, so we are gonna ship it using and as preventive we want to build a wall between the cockpit and the habitable zone from the van and then cross our fingers that he arrive safe and sound!
We check different companies and we decide us forand we will send Cactus the 29 of November 2016. The estimated time are 4 weeks, so at the last days from 2016 we will pick up it in Montevideo and start our adventure!!
