Our UK To Australia Car Shipping Methods

We offer a very efficient service with competitive rates for car shipping from the UK to Australia. We can offer shipping of cars by:

RoRo – Roll on Roll off Car Shipping:

UK To Australia Car ShippingRoRo ships are specifically designed to carry cars under deck and are not exposed to any external elements such as water. Cars are secured and lashed to the floor of the ship to prevent any movement during transit.

Allow us to assist you in importing your car, SUV or 4 x 4 from the UK to Australia. We have 2-3 sailings a month from Southampton, and we can get your vehicle to Brisbane, Port Kembla, Fremantle or Melbourne, whichever port if best for you.

It takes around 40 days to get to Australia, subject to schedule, weather and which port the vehicle is being shipped to, but we will keep you up to date on the changing ETAs throughout the shipment of your vehicle. There may also be an option to ship your vehicle from Newcastle – just let us know when you contact us which port you would rather ship from.

For your vehicle to qualify for car rates, it needs to be under 1.6m high and in order for 4 x 4 rates to be applicable to your vehicle it must be under 2.1m high and 18CBM.

20 Ft Or 40ft Containerized Car Shipping:

We offer a weekly car import service to Brisbane, Freemantle, Sydney, Melbourne, and Adelaide. The sailings either load from Tilbury or London Gateway.  Service is weekly, transit time approx. 42 days (depending on POD)
