Video - How We Ship Your Car to Canada

In this video we show you our process for shipping your car from the UK to Canada in a 20ft container.

  • The car is loaded and secured at our facility to ensure it doesn't move during shipment.
  • It is driven into the container and positioned before all four wheels are safely chocked using either metal or wood chocks.
  • Strong, padded ratchet straps are used to lash the wheels to the container's built-in securing eyelets.
  • If straps cannot be secured around the wheels, the vehicle's front and rear towing eyelets are used for secure lashing.
  • All shipping containers adhere to strict safety regulations, ensuring structural integrity and protection from weather conditions.
