shipping cars and loading facilities

 

We provide facilities to our clients for vehicles loading at our West London depot, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow or at all major ports for transporting your vehicles by containers and transporting vehicles by Ro Ro to be delivered direct to port. We provide the safest means of transportation to your overseas destination.

When using a Ro Ro shipping service for transporting your vehicles, please note of the following:

 

The cars or vehicles are driven into the vessel at the port of loading, secured within the ship and then simply driven out of the vessel at the port of destination. All automobiles are protected from the elements in enclosed cargo decks. This form of international auto shipping can provide an affordable, as well as dependable option for transporting automobiles overseas. Oversized boats which are too large to fit inside of a container as well as construction equipment are typically shipped in a Roll on Roll off vessel.

 

  • A 20' container will hold one vehicle. 
  • A 40' container will hold two standard size cars or vehicles. 
  • A 40' High Cube container can often hold three small vehicles; we can build a ramp inside the container for the third vehicle. Although at times we can load forth car it is depending on sizes.

After your vehicle(s) have been loaded into the shipping container, there may be additional space in the container for a limited amount of personal effects and household goods. Although the shipping costs will not increase for shipping your personal belongings in the container, there will be an additional cost to have your personal belongings loaded and secured in the container. 

  • Your vehicle must arrive at our warehouse with no more than 1-2 gallons of gasoline in the fuel tank. 
  • The battery will be disconnected once the vehicle has been loaded into the shipping container.

Personal items are permitted to be shipped inside your vehicle. However, they must be secured and we must receive a detailed packing list. 

  • Hazardous items are not permitted to be shipped in your vehicle or the container. 

 

 

When the container arrives to the overseas port, you will need to make arrangements to have the container transported from the port to a warehouse for unloading. If requested, we can often handle these arrangements on your behalf.

Marine insurance, though not a requirement is strongly recommended when shipping your vehicle overseas. Your domestic auto insurance will not cover a loss or damage to your vehicle while it is in transit to an overseas location. The liability of carrier is limited per vehicle or shipping container. The origional vehicle ownership will be required at the time of loading and no HP vehicles will be accepted.
