Calculation of shipping costs
Shipping costs are calculated according to the maximum dimensions of the vehicle:
Length x Width x Height = Volume
Each centimeter counts. If the dimensions have been altered the price may be affected.
The freight rate is € 57,00 per m³ from the east coast (Halifax / Baltimore) and $ 109,00 per m³ + $ 7,20 per m³ Panama-canal-crossing from the west coast (Los Angeles / Seattle).
What does my motorhome shipping cost?
We can determine the final costs if we know the dimensions of your motorhome and your selected destination, regardless of the direction.
Again, the ships depart on a weekly basis. The reservation should be done 2-3 months in advance. Even short-term bookings are possible if there is still space available.
For the return shipment the present freight rate is € 63,00 per m³ from to east coast (Halifax /Baltimore) and $ 109,00 per m³ +$ 7,20 per m³ Panama-Canal-Crossing to the west coast (Los Angeles / Seattle).

Luckily theft is very rare on the most frequent route from Baltimore / Halifax to Europe.

From other ports like Brunswick, Los Angeles, Seattle or Veracruz the theft rate is higher, but still not as bad as it often appears in the internet.
