We have collated some of the most frequently asked questions about vehicle shipping.
If you have a question that you can't see an answer for below, just get in touch and we'll do our best to answer it.
We have a wealth of knowledge about shipping vehicles and goods to many places abroad and would welcome the opportunity to discuss your requirements.
I'VE BOUGHT A VEHICLE IN THE USA AND DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT... CAN YOU HELP!?!
Absolutely, vehicle shipping is our speciality. You can either arrange for your seller or dealership to deliver the car to one of our shippers, or we can collect the vehicle from the door of your seller, particularly useful if your seller wants no involvement in the shipping process. Once the vehicle reaches the UK you have the option of collecting it from one of our bonded warehouses, or alternatively we can deliver to your house, a complete door to door service.
CAN YOU SHIP BOTH RUNNING AND NON-RUNNING VEHICLES?
Yes we ship both running and non-running vehicles and can also arrange the collection and delivery of both. US hauliers are becoming more insistent on a working footbrake or E-brake.
WHERE CAN YOU COLLECT VEHICLES AND SHIP FROM IN THE USA?
We have a developed network of regular container shippers across the USA, including West coast; LA, San Francisco and Seattle, Gulf; Houston and East Coast; New York, Charleston and Miami. We also have a warehouse at Chicago for less frequent US inland shipments.
WHERE ELSE CAN YOU SHIP TO/FROM OTHER THAN THE US?
Australia – combination of RORO and container from/to – Sydney, Brisbane, Fremantle, Adelaide, Melbourne.
New Zealand – Auckland, Christchurch, Tauranga, Nelson.
South Africa – RORO to Port Elizabeth, East London, and Durban. Container service back from Durban.
Please contact us if you are interested in shipping to a destination not listed, we handle vehicle shipments for destinations around the world.
CAN YOU ALSO OFFER ROLL ON ROLL OFF SHIPMENTS?
Yes we also use the Roll on Roll off services for autos and oversize cargo such as Boats, Motorhomes, Travel Trailers, Car Box Trailers, and Dually Pickup Trucks.
CAN I SHIP A VEHICLE FROM THE USA WITHOUT A CERTIFICATE OF TITLE?
A vehicle cannot generally be exported from the USA without the original Certificate of Title. US CBP will require it for export clearance so it is important that it isn't sent over to the UK before the vehicle ships.
I'M KEEN ON IMPORTING A VEHICLE BUT I'M UNCLEAR OF HMRC RULINGS AND IMPORT TAXES, CAN YOU ADVISE?
Yes we have experience in the different types of import and export Customs clearance available and will gladly advise on the correct one for your circumstances......it's not as daunting as you may think!
