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.
