RoRo = Roll On Roll Off
Hamburg - Montevideo
We have given a lot of thought to the type of shipping. In principle, there are two options to choose from, container or RoRo shipping.
Shipping in the container is the safest way to protect yourself from theft and damage in transit, unfortunately it is also almost 40% more expensive. If you want maximum security for the content and the attachments in the car, you should choose this.
Due to the lower price and the possibility to insure the vehicle content, we decided on the RoRo variant. We hand Harry over to Mr. Hansen from the Caravan Shippers in Hamburg at the port and he then sets off in the belly of the ship on his journey to Montevideo.
We will tell you whether everything worked out as soon as we picked Harry up in Montevideo.
In principle there are 3 providers that offer shipping from Germany, CaravanShipper, Seabridge and Mafratours. We are not 100% sure, but the same provider seems to be behind Seabridge and Mafratours.
The offers from these providers have resulted in slightly higher prices and lower benefits than with caravan shippers, especially the insurance benefits that only involve additional costs. In addition, the pricing of both providers was opaque and a price is only finally set after the ship has left.
Not so with Caravan Shippers, here there was a fixed price based on the vehicle as an offer including insurance for the content. The sum insured can also be increased against a corresponding surcharge; we have increased it to € 5000 for a surcharge of € 50. We had contact with Mr. Hansen who took a lot of time for us and the advice.
