Ports And Services

We can offer you weekly services from the ports of Southampton, Newcastle and Felixstowe. These depart to the ports of Brisbane, Fremantle, Melbourne and Sydney. Transit takes between 37–43 days depending which port you have chosen for your car to be shipped to. When transporting a vehicle to Australia you'll have to apply for a Vehicle Import Approval. We are able to send you a Full Guide to importing in to Australia along with an application form when you make a booking with us. It is advisable that you apply for all permits well ahead of sending your car out, to allow ample time for any issue that may arise. It can take up to 6 weeks for approval of the documents.

Finding An Accurate Quote

If the vehicle you need to ship is a caravan or motorhome, then to help us get your quote as quickly as possible, having the dimensions at hand would be of great help to us so we can get an accurate quote from the freighting lines; the exact measurements needed are the length, width and height of the vehicle. Another thing that you have to take into consideration is that no items are allowed inside the caravan or motorhome when exporting, unless agreed between us. Our staff can help you with any documentation and will arrange for you to have the shipping note with you well before transporting your vehicle. With every quotation to Australia we send as much information as we can on obtaining an Import Approval and application form.
