Our Shipping Services
We offer a variety of services for shipping classic cars overseas. Roll-on Roll-off car shipping (RoRo) is our most popular service; perfect for fast and fairly cheap shipments to most destinations that depart on a regular basis. Unfortunately we cannot ship personal belongings in the vehicle with this service.
When shipping high value vehicles, our Air Freight shipping service is sometimes preferred as it offers great protection for your vehicle, as well as the added benefit of fast transit times (1-10 days, depending on the destination).
We also offer a container car shipping service. Cars are will be shipped in your own, personal 20ft shipping container or on some destinations we can offer we operate the new R-Rak service which allows us to ship 4 vehicles inside a 40ft container and you pay only for your own personal slot inside that container.
Container services tend to be more frequent with the additional benefit that you can load tools, spare and personal goods inside the vehicle. For those high value or lovingly restored classics we would recommend shipping in your own personal 20ft container. We can arrange pick up from anywhere in the UK and the vehicles will be loaded and secured personally by our team here at Autoshippers. Alternatively, it may be economical to deliver the vehicle directly to the port where we have fully trained and experienced loading facilities to safely secure your car inside containers.
