For shipping cars overseas, we have two main methods. The first is a roll on/roll off service. RORO vessels are specially designed to accommodate cars. The vehicle is driven on to and secured under the deck of the vessel, safe away from the weather of the journey, and can then be driven off once the final destination is reached. The second method of transporting internationally is by securing your vehicle in a container. This is usually the more expensive option, depending on the destination, but can be used when more security is desired, for example with cars of a very high value, or perhaps delicate machinery. The containers are closed and locked for the entire journey overseas. Items such as personal belongings can also be stored within the car or vehicle when shipped by container, this is something not typically allowed when shipping by RORO.
At First Base Freight, as well as cars, we ship all kinds of vehicles, from motorcycles, to caravans, motorhomes, trucks, machinery and even boats. If you are unsure about whether you are able to ship your vehicle, or how to go about it, contacting us is the best way to find a solution.

Ro-Ro is by far one of the cheaper methods available for shipping a vehicle overseas. It offers a reliable and frequent service from many UK ports including Southampton, Sheerness, Bristol and Immingham etc to thousands of overseas destinations. The ease of loading and unloading vehicles on to these vessels make ro-ro shipping a valued choice to make and can save you money at departure and arrival ports.
Either 20ft, 40ft or 40ft HC containers are available and sail weekly in most cases to almost any port worldwide. Vehicles are secured inside the container at one of our many receiving depots and are strapped inside the container before being craned on to the vessel. All containers are sealed for security reasons and offers that extra peace of mind when shipping personal effects inside the vehicle.
All car carriers are insured for the safe transit of any collection/delivery in the UK or Europe. Regular services are available to France, Spain and the UK. Single and multi deck transporters can be used open or enclosed for safer movement. All vehicles are fully insured whilst being carried on a car transporter to offer customers peace of mind when transporting their vehicle. We Can even collect your vehicle using a Trade Plate Driver for a fraction of the cost of a local transporter collection.
