With over 30 years experience with Ten years of this travelling extensively around the Globe, vetting and ensuring our agents are well versed in the process of shipping and handling motor vehicles, we can deal with all the Import / Export formalities in house. This includes registration issues, customs Vat and duty rates.
We also offer advice on import / export regulations, not just in the UK but worldwide and being electronically linked to all the major ports in the UK, we can arrange customs clearance for vehicles arriving by container, Ro Ro or Air.
Completed condition reports and photographs are taken of every vehicle prior to loading inside the container. As temperatures and humidity levels can vary during a voyage, silicon bags are supplied to keep condensation to a minimum.
Once your car is safely secured inside the container we lock and seal the doors ensuring that no one, other than the authorities can enter before it arrives at its destination to be unpacked.
Throughout the shipment process all those involved are professional, trustworthy and financially-secure. This can only be achieved by working with our agents that have been extensively audited and have proven financial security.
It is worth noting that if you do intend to ship personal items within the vehicle, it is best to ship the vehicle in a container or send the items separately in a groupage container.
In most cases, vehicles that are imported / exported by air will be taken to the appropriate airline cargo terminal for a pre-flight preparation which includes an X-ray. Once this procedure has been completed the vehicle will be loaded and secured onto a specially designed pallet and either lifted or rolled into the aircraft ready for it’s journey.
Once your car arrives at its destination it will be unpacked, taken off the pallet and prepared for customs clearance and ready for collection and delivery.
