Vehicle shipments – Treasured possessions don’t always fit in a box

It is a long way to ship your car or motorcycle – but the thought of leaving your pride and joy behind is simply heart breaking, isn’t it?

Whether you choose its own exclusive container, a dedicated compartment in a shared container or secure ‘roll on, roll off’ vehicle shipping, our overseas division are highly experienced in international car shipping. They will advise on the best choices when it comes to moving your car overseas; ensuring that that stunning convertible of yours remains without a scratch on it.

Secure storage

If you are moving short term or won’t be moving into your permanent residence immediately, we have a range of secure storage facilities, in the U.K and overseas which are fully covered by our insurance and 24/7 security.

Shipping for all budgets and timescales

How to ship personal items overseas:

Your own container – The fastest type of sea freight as you’re working to your own schedule. Loaded and sealed at your home under your supervision, affording you complete peace of mind that all is exactly as you’d want it to be; it is driven directly to the port for loading.

Shared containers – The best choice for small shipments, ‘groupage’ combines your international shipping consignment with others moving to the same destination. It is cost-effective but does take a little longer to consolidate.

Air freight – As you may imagine, the fastest overseas freight shipping is by air; great if you have a tight timescale or if you need some essentials sooner. Many customers choose a combination of a small air shipment, and for less urgent items to arrive by sea.
