Shipping a Vehicle to the US Virgin Islands
Shipping a vehicle to the US Virgin Islands is not an easy task. It’s a long, grueling process rife with peril. Braving the open waters with hundreds of thousands – if not millions – of dollars worth of cargo is a scary proposition, but it’s a necessary part of getting your vehicle there.
Okay, maybe it’s not quite so bad as all of that. It’s not all that scary, though for a customer such as yourself it sure can be. And when the weather gets bad, it can get a bit hectic. But on the whole, shipping a car to the Virgin Islands is something that just needs done, and luckily for you, we can help.
So how does shipping a vehicle to the US Virgin Islands work?
It’s pretty simple – if you’ve read anything about overseas auto transport services, it’s a lot like that. If you haven’t, follow that link for a good overview on how it all works.
Luckily, the Virgin Islands are a bit closer than places like Alaska or Hawaii. This means that most of the time, the cargo ship handling your vehicle will depart from Miami or another east coast port. This makes things cheaper, but will usually require your vehicle to be shipped to the port ahead of time.
The company you book your shipment with will be able to get it to the port for you. From there, it’ll be loaded onto a cargo ship, secured, and shipped down to the port in the Virgin Islands.
This sounds pretty expensive…
It can be. Auto transportation services aren’t really cheap as it stands. Adding in a second leg to your journey – and one that takes it overseas, no less – can be cost prohibitive. That is, of course, unless they charge obscene amounts of money.
But it’s necessary, especially if you’re shipping a vehicle to the US Virgin Islands. Many car transporters don’t even handle shipments to that part of the globe to begin with. So couple a difficult journey – one that has low demand as-is – as well as only a few companies providing services for it, and you have a recipe for expensive shipping services.
When it comes to shipping vehicles, though, American Auto Shipping specializes in great rates year-round. So no matter where you’re shipping, we can get you a comprehensive price to ship it at a rate that you can afford.
