Auto transport Puerto Rico
A small island to the East of Cuba and Haiti, Puerto Rico requires international transport to and from the continental United States. If cars are shipped from the continental United States, rough conditions in the ocean might require container shipping, especially if shipped from further north on the Atlantic coast. If a car is shipped from one of the neighboring islands or Florida, it may be appropriate to use a roll-on/roll-off method depending on the time of the year. Puerto Rico is only 100 miles from East to West and 40 miles from North to South making auto shipping on the mainland quite rare.
However, auto shipping is possible to most areas of Puerto Rico and door to door delivery is a viable options for a service discount. The San Juan port is the most common entry point into the country and features that heaviest shipping traffic in the Caribbean. Most auto shipping deliveries can be made to and picked up at the San Juan port. For mainland shipping in Puerto Rico, the warm, humid climate year round will not typically have time to damage cars in during the short time that they are in transit. For this reason, open haulers are appropriate for most cars.
The major highway in Puerto Rico is highway 53, maintained by the United States Department of Transportation.
