We operate from our own 21,000 ft. warehouse with onsite container loading facilities, or we can arrange UK Nationwide transportation services for pickup and safe delivery to all main UK ports.
Our car shipping services are tailored to your individual needs. We ship cars from the UK by utilising Roll on Roll off (RoRo), shared and sole use 20ft and 40ft containers, and our unique R-Rak service which allows us to load up to 4 cars inside a shipping container.
Shipping Cars by RoRo
Roll on Roll off ships are designed specifically for the transportation of wheeled cargo and are typically the preferred choice of car manufacturers including Mercedes, BMW, Audi and Jaguar to transport their vehicles all over the world. You can drive your car, or we will collect and deliver to the port. Your vehicle is then driven up the ships ramp and inside the vessel where it is secured with chains to the interior deck of the ship.
Shipping Cars by Container
This service gives you sole use of your own 20ft or 40ft container. Unlike Ro-Ro, shipping a car by container allows you to load spares or personal effects inside the container and most sailings from the UK are on a weekly basis. We offer container loading facilities at our own warehouses or at the ports of exit in Southampton or London.
Shipping cars using the R-Rak system
Introducing the revolutionary R-Rak shipping system for safe and secure loading of cars into containers. Now available on our Australia, Cyprus, USA and New Zealand car shipping services, this unique racking system allows us to load 4 cars into a 40ft container and pass the savings to our private clients.
This insurance approved system of shipping cars overseas has now been adopted by some of the world's largest car manufacturers. Unlike RoRo you can now ship any spares or personal effects inside your car. Neat!
We have a daily motorbike collection service providing nationwide coverage from anywhere in the UK and we arrange for your bike to be collected and crated at our packing facility before loading to our shared container services.
Export standard crating services and weekly shared container services. We ship motorbikes from the UK to over 6500 worldwide destinations.
Our specialist team will take care of the export paperwork and advise you on all the necessary customs documentation to ensure a smooth transit overseas.
Classic Car Shipping
