Shipping Cars To Barbados From The UK

We offer an efficient and very competitive rates for car shipping to Barbados. We can offer shipping of cars by:

  • RoRo – Roll on Roll Off Car Shipping:

Shipping specifically designed to carry cars under deck and are not exposed to any external. Cars are secured and lashed to prevent any movement during transit.

  • 20 FT or 40FT Containerised Car Shipping:

Cars are loaded and secured in the container to prevent any movement during transit. Containers are only to carry your car and are opened at destination.

If you would like to ship your car, SUV or 4 x 4 from the UK to Barbados, we can offer a direct sailing from Portsmouth to Bridgetown for you. This can either be containerised or roll on roll off (roro) depending on which you would prefer. For containerised shipments, customers may ship one vehicle in a 20ft container or two vehicles in a 40ft container.  Vehicles would be dropped off at a nominated loading yard where they would be professionally loaded and lashed into the appropriate container and then presented to the berth for shipment.  If you would rather ship your vehicles via the roro method which is usually slightly cheaper, then the vehicles would have to be dropped off in Portsmouth at the docks and they would be professionally driven onto the vessel  and lashed to the deck to prevent movement during shipment.  Roro shipments are done under deck on specialized vessels so they do not get damaged by the sea water or weather conditions.

Barbados does not accept the import of cars that are over four years old; any import cars must have less than 50,000 kilometres/ 31,069 miles and have new tyres and battery.

Simba Shipping would be more than happy to supply you with a quote to ship your vehicle to Bridgetown. Please get in touch with us and let us know the make and model of your car so we can send you a price and an up to date sailing schedule.  Our prices are including all UK charges including customs and handling, but not Marine Insurance or destination costs which we can’t get involved with. We also cannot advise on any import regulations or restrictions that may apply to your shipment, so please contact the relevant authorities to ensure your vehicles are compliant with any such restrictions prior to arranging shipment.
