Shipping to India

International Car Transport Services from the UK to India

First Base Freight are specialists in international car transportation and are able to offer you a safe and secure service from the UK to thousands of worldwide destinations, including India. We offer multiple services by container and RORO. Transport of your car is available from anywhere in the UK to the port of Chennai, as well as the port of Mumbai in India.

RORO To India

Of the two ways in which your vehicle can be shipped to India, RORO is generally the most popular. Roll on/roll off has frequent vessels leaving from all major ports and has a very easy loading method. The vessels are specially designed to house thousands of vehicles, which are simply driven on and parked safely inside. These are then strapped down and secured for the journey. This method is also very cost effective when compared to others.

RORO to India happens every 2 weeks, and transit time to Chennai takes 36 days from the UK port of Southampton. We also have vessels going to the port of Mumbai, again from Southampton but the transit time for this service is slightly shorter, being about 28 days.

Export To India By Containers

The second option for export is by container. Your vehicle will be securely stored inside a container which is then craned onto its designated ship for transit. Since the containers are sealed for the journey, this is a good option for cars of a very high value, and for storing any other personal belongings. RORO vessels do not allow any other items to be stored within the vehicles it is transporting. Containers can come in 20ft or 40ft lengths, depending on your needs and can sometimes be shared between consignments to save on cost as well as space.
