I have been receiving a lot of questions relating what should or what should not be loaded inside a vehicle when it is being shipped on Roll on Roll Off basis.
Below is a summary of what is expected to be loaded in a vehicles.
Customers need to be clear that all loaded items in a vehicle are loaded at your own risk and no insurance company can take the risk of insuring any loaded items.
If you have valuable items, I recommend that you use our Air freight or Sea freight service as it is more secure.
