The ships that carry these vehicles have containers that can accommodate large vehicles. This means that you will not incur any additional costs for large SUV's or Pickup Trucks on the ship. The cost to get them to the port will vary with the size of the vehicle if you are using our carrier to bring it there. This is because the larger and heavier the vehicle, the less other types can fit on the truck heading to Jacksonville.  So you will see about a $150-$200 increase in the trucking to the port, even though the ship does not charge anything additional.

Things to Remember

There should be no more than a quarter tank of gas in the vehicle. This has to do with weight restrictions on the ship. So it's very important to be sure it is not over that amount.

It has also has to be empty of all items, with the exception of factory hardware. This has to do with weight but also has a lot to do with the Department of Agriculture rules.  Be sure that the vehicle is empty or items will be discarded.

Make sure there are no loose or broken parts on the vehicle. This will cause the vehicle to be rejected and stored on their lot until you can come get it, which will cost you time and most importantly, money. Be sure no broken parts are on the vehicle.
