I agree ....the customer has the choice....but there is limited opportunities for RoRo into Adelaide hence containerised shipments.
Our experienced loading method is proven with the loading of inverted boats into the container.
All fluids require to be drained and battery removed to do this but sometimes AQIS require this and most boats if looked after are winterised by the USA seller anyway.
Not sure what your experience is but I have been shipping out of the USA since 1989.
I only do two car containers or one car and one boat.
When importers load more than two cars in a container and still charge $ 3500 AUD per car for the additional cars then their risk management for the consigned freight is non existent.
