How to ship your car to Cyprus
We can arrange for your car to be shipped by weekly services to Limassol, Cyprus, leaving from either Southampton, with a transit time of just 14 days, or from Portbury, Bristol with a transit time of 21 days.
Both RORO and container transport is available from these services. RORO stands for roll on/roll off, which succinctly defines the loading process for this method. All cars are driven on to the specially crafted vessels, which can hold up to thousands of vehicles at any one time. They are parked on one of the multiple decks and securely strapped down for the journey. Once the destination is reached, the cars are released and can be driven straight off, it's that simple. This form of transport has become very popular, and there are frequent sailings from almost all major ports, at inexpensive rates.
Loading your car into a freight container is an available alternative to RORO. Once loaded, secured and safely locked inside, your container will be lifted on to its designated vessel. Containers come in 20ft or 40ft lengths to accommodate your specific needs. They can sometimes be shared between vehicles and consignments, to save on space and cost. You are usually allowed to ship your vehicle with personal effects stored inside, which isn't generally allowed with RORO.
