RORO and Container Services

Roll on/roll off car shipping services to Turkey is the most affordable option for anyone looking to ship a vehicle on a budget. There are weekly sailings from the UK to Turkey,  transit time takes approximately 15 days on these purpose built roro ships. RORO vessels are specially designed to house thousands of vehicles safely on board at anyone time. There are many decks where the cars are parked and safely secured onboard. The loading process could not be any easier, all cars are simply driven on, parked and strapped down. This is also usually the more inexpensive option when compared to container shipping to Turkey. 

Container shipping is generally the better option when you want to ship your car or vehicle with items and personal belongings stored inside. This is something that is typically not allowed when using RORO services. Containers allow this since once the car is loaded inside, the container will be closed and locked, ensuring no one has access to your goods until the cargo arrives at its destination. Once your container is loaded, it will be lifted on to its designated vessel, ready for transit. There are weekly container services to Kumport, Mersin and Izmir all each offering a respectable transit time of approximately 15 days.
