Wow you really know your Chevrolet's don't you!
I'm surprised you didn't think it was Camaro first, but then I'd expect nothing less from somebody who owns a Chevy POS.

I wouldn't be put off of importing BB / roll on roll off.
There is a risk but also there is a risk with containers as well.
From personal experience I've imported at least 200 new and used
Silverado pick up trucks and cars from LA brake bulk and this never happend
to any of them.

Same goes with cars from Japan.

If anyone wants to import this way from USA especially LA, I would highly recommend Wallenius Wihelmsen shipping.

Hi Scott.

I dont know the exact price, but my friend just bought 2 50s COE trucks and he is looking at about $1500 per truck.

Not sure its worth it for a car ...

Cheers,
Frank.

From another forum:

---

Some have used RORO and never had any issues.

It's not a matter of being cheap, it's just simple economics.

RORO - the car is driven onto the ship and then strapped down, reverse at the other end.

CONTAINER- Car driven into container guys climbs out window straps car down amoungst other cars and parts and then locks the container doors. Container forklifted onto truck and transported to shipping yard. Container craned onto boat, reverse the other end.

More time, resources, and man power for a container load means more $$$'s, pretty simple really

You have just as much chance of a strap letting go in a container as you do on a ships deck.

Here's an example - to get out of a car in a container means climbing out the window = damaging paint work and panel depending on who's loading it



When a strap breaks, the car rubs up and down the side of the container for the whole trip as well as banging into the car forward or rear of it



How do I know, I've seen it 1st hand many a time

Not to mention container issues full stop



Containers can also take a long time to arrive due to shipping arrangements



Yes RORO has it's issues as well, but how do you think every BMW, Mercedes, SAAB, FIAT, Toyota etc... arrives in Australia ???
Not by container, that's for sure... by RORO



And all you have to do is pick it up from the dock after customs have had a gander and away you drive.



Now how many forum members know personally of a car that has been damaged by RORO ???
