Car Carrier - Auto Transport

Most auto shipping to Puerto Rico is door-to-port and auto shipping from Puerto Rico is port to door. Since the island is small, we do not have door pick-up (curbside pick-up) on the island itself unless you use the concierge service. The rate or your Puerto Rico auto transport is all inclusive of sales tax, highway tolls, fuel, and carrier insurance.

 How to Transport Your Car to Puerto Rico

 

We take care of everything for you so all you have to worry about is having your vehicle ready to be picked up. Shipping your vehicle to Puerto Rico is a simple process. We offer two methods. We can either pick up your vehicle at any location in the U.S. (including Alaska and Hawaii). Or, you can drop off at the location in Jacksonville.

Shipping to Puerto Rico via Car Carrier to Jacksonville, Florida

 

We take your order and assign a carrier to come get your vehicle at its location in the US. At the same time, we are registering your booking number that is necessary to enter the port and have your vehicle dropped off. Your vehicle stops at the port of Jacksonville where will be inspected and loaded on to a container ship which will take your vehicle down to Puerto Rico. Even if you reside in Florida, it is very convenient to have us pick up and deliver to JAX, since our carriers have a TWIC (transport worker identification card) that grants them fast access to the port. For only $275 more we can take it for you from anywhere in Florida.

Why Jacksonville?

 

Yes, there are other ports such as the one in Eddystsone Pennsylvania. However pricing can be similar as we have deep discounts in trucking services. Sailing is also very slow, and can take a up to a week longer than using trucking from the Northeast down to Florida.  They are also less consumer friendly for direct drop off by customer. Upon request, we can get pricing for direct drop in Pennsylvania, for example.
