How We Ship To Italy
To ship your car overseas there are two main ways in which your vehicle can be shipped, the first is through RORO, roll on/roll off, this is the simplest and cheapest method of moving your car to Italy, what happens with RORO is that your vehicle is driven directly a specialised vessel and secured to the car decks inside away from the environment of the impending journey. RORO has become a very popular method of importing and exporting cars, due to its frequent sailings from all major ports and its very easy loading process.
RORO to Italy leaves from Portbury in Bristol and arrives at Civitavecchia, Italy, which about 50 miles from the capital of Rome. This service leaves on a weekly basis.
The second option is to store your vehicle in a container, this is mainly used for very expensive vehicles, for that further piece of mind, but as well as the added security you may be able to load the vehicle with personal belongings. Storing items inside the car is not allowed with RORO vessels. There are always various restrictions and details which we will cover when you make a booking with us. When you require container freight to Italy, an enquiry will have to be made by us, as there are no regular vessels sailing to that destination at this current time.
