Shipping vehicles and goods together by container?

Has anyone had any luck shipping their vehicles and goods in a single container to the USVI?  And who did you use?  This seems like the most cost-efficient means, but I can only find companies doing goods and vehicles separately.

Nope, they will not ship everything together anymore.

@daveb722 Thank you for the response!  What a shame.

@tracyggg probably had to many damage claims due to a vehicle moving within a packed container.

@tracyggg once idea is to ship your vehicle using RO-RO (roll on roll off) no container.  It's way cheaper and unless it's brand new car you will likely have a good experience.  We shipped a nearly new jeep and it went quite smoothly, was very cost effective, and honestly I don't even think we had the tiniest of scratches.  We used Blue Ocean and this was about 3 years ago.

@VIpirate Thank you!  That's likely what we'll end up doing.  It just seemed like less hassle to pack a container and move the entire lot together.  Now it's looking like our goods and vehicles might even leave from different ports.  It'll work out, but I can't wait to be past this part 😀
