Berlin Motors with our authorized partners, loads vehicle via a modern loading system that uses metal lifts in the container, and cars only get strapped by the wheels. This provides vehicles more space in the container and minimizes the risk of damage. Multiple vehicles are loaded into a single container, ensuring fast delivery times and reduced shipping costs.
We utilize this car loading rack system from the USA to Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Berlin Motors assists project customers to select the best shipping solution.
