Safe, Secure Car Shipping Services for your Overseas Removal
As experienced International Moving specialists, your car will be in very safe hands. We will ensure that the car has the maximum protection possible for international shipping. A made to measure wooden frame is hand built inside the container. This will restrict movement of the vehicle during transit. Your car is then carefully loaded into the container and secured to the floor using specialist transit straps and secures. This will prevent the car from moving whilst inside the container and during transit.
We recommend that you either drop your car off in our Liverpool or London depot or we can arrange collection for you. This is much safer than loading the vehicle at your residence or at any other location. We have the necessary equipment and health and safety provisions already in place and we are able to carefully load your car in a controlled environment.
We also offer CCTV monitored car storage facilities prior to the shipping of your car if required.
We can provide full, all risk marine insurance to cover your car whilst in transit and storage. Please contact us for a quotation.
Car Shipping with Household Furniture and Effects
If you are shipping your household effects in the same container, the remaining space can be used to ship your items (as per photograph). An average sized car will take up approximately 50% of a 20ft container (25% of a 40ft container) depending on the size and model of the vehicle.
Vehicle Shipping Services
We also provide shipping services for other vehicles including motorbikes, caravans, trailers and in addition we can also provide a shipping service for motorboats. In order to prepare the quotation for the shipment of a boat, we will require the exact dimensions and information on the make and model.
We can also provide alternative shipping options for your vehicle including Ro-Ro (roll on, roll off) services.
Vehicle Import Regulations
Each country has separate requirements regarding the importation of vehicles. Your Move Manager will be able to provide specific information with regards to your destination country.
Preparing your Car for Shipment
Please note that the vehicle has to be empty of fuel and the battery disconnected in order to comply with new International Maritime regulations.
Please also thoroughly clean your car (inside and outside) prior to shipping.
