How We Ship
For exports to Greece, the port of arrival will be Piraeus, the largest Greek seaport and one of the biggest in the Mediterranean Sea basin. There are two ways in which we can transport your car, you can either use a RORO (roll on/roll off) service or load your car directly into a container that will be lifted on to its departing vessel. RORO will be from the port of Southampton and transit times take 9 days. Departures are weekly. Container services can sometimes be subject to change so will have to be enquired for by us at your request.
RORO is usually the most affordable and easiest way of getting your car to its destination. Thousands of cars can be driven on and stored in the specially designed vessels, where they are secured safely for the journey. The frequent sailings from all major ports and ease of loading have made this a very popular method for the import and export of cars.
The alternative service, containers, can often times be more expensive, but does come with added benefits compared to RORO. With this method, you will have a freight container in which your car is stored, this will be closed and locked for the entirety of the journey, offering safety and piece of mind. You can also store personal items inside the car when transporting by container, something not typically allowed with RORO.
