Car Shipping UK Australia

How to ship your car to Australia with Auto Shippers

Weekly Car Shipping by Container and RoRo from the UK to Australia

Auto Shippers offer car shipping to Australia by Roll on Roll off (Ro Ro) direct from the ports of Southampton and Sheerness and weekly by container from Southampton to Melbourne, Sydney Adelaide and Brisbane. We have been shipping cars to Australia for our private clients for over 20 years and our team of dedicated move managers have a wealth of experience in all aspects of car shipping. When shipping cars to Australia we offer two options depending on budget and vehicle requirements.

Shipping cars to Australia by Container. By utilizing the revolutionary R-Rak container loading system we can load 4 cars, safely and securely, into 1 x 40ft container. This gives us considerable savings over the traditional method of building car racks with wood, and is a little friendlier to the environment. This system of shipping cars has now been adopted by some of the world's largest car manufacturers including BMW, Honda, Mercedes Benz, Volkswagen, Lotus, Volvo and Ford.

Now proven to be the safest system for shipping cars overseas the R-Rak system allows us to now ship every week, direct to all main Australian ports with considerable savings to our clients and with the added benefit of more frequent sailings and faster transit times.

Shipping Cars to Australia by Ro Ro

Your vehicle can be collected anywhere in the UK or you can drive your car directly to the port. Cars are then driven directly into the car shipping deck of the vessels. The two main car shipping lines to Australia are Hoegh Autoliners and Wallenius Lines and between them we offer you car shipping from the UK to Australia every 7 to 10 days.

Our container services provide sailings every week to all main Australian ports including Fremantle, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Darwin and Newcastle in as little as 34 days. Our Roll on Roll off services provide sailings to all Ro Ro car shipping ports in Australia from the port of Southampton and Sheerness with transit times from as little as 30 days but sailings from the UK are less frequent than our container shipping services.

As a registered customs broker we have direct access to the Government gateway to ensure that your car is shipped to Australia in accordance with current UK customs requirements to avoid delay in shipment. Through our agents in Australia we also provide comprehensive assistance in completion of customs formalities at your destination port. You can find further information on how to ship your car to Australia and detailed information on Australia customs rules and regulations on our Australia car import guide here.
