Containerized Shipping
A safe way to ship your vehicle overseas is to have it loaded and secured in a container. The vehicle is strapped down tight and secured with wooden blocks around all four wheels to keep it from moving while at sea. One great advantage of this mode of transport is you can load your personal belongings onto the container as well if there is remaining room in the container. In order to obtain a safer transit, the vehicle’s battery will be disconnected by our professional crew members and the fuel tank will have to be emptied (by client) to less than a quarter of a tank.
Another secure way to have your vehicle shipped overseas is a roll on roll off service where the vehicle is driven into the ship. Major car manufacturers use this method of shipping. The car is rolled on to the ship and then rolled off the ship once it reaches its destination port. Once the car is on the ship, it is secured by straps and braces to keep it from moving. This ensures that while in transit it will not move and remain securely in one place.
Alpha Marine, Inc. understands the connection most clients have with their motorcycles and in order to ensure safe transit, we recommend placing it in a wooden crate which is custom built by our professional crew members. The crate will be placed in a container where it will be strapped down to ensure a safer transit to the port of destination.

All shipping methods above require the client to provide Alpha Marine, Inc. with the original title of the vehicle in order to validate it with US Customs before shipping. Automobile & Bikes have to be in a running condition and spare key will have to be placed in the glove compartment.

Alpha Marine Inc. requires the following in order to ship your vehicle:
