Our Shipping Services

We offer a very efficient service with competitive rates for car shipping to New Zealand. We can offer shipping of cars by:

RoRo – Roll on Roll off Car Shipping:

ocean-transportation-2-compressed-50RoRo 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. Simba Shipping can get your vehicles to New Zealand using either RoRo (roll on, roll off – where vehicles are loaded into a car carrier vessel and then lashed directly to the deck) or in a container. (General rule of thumb is one vehicle in a 20ft container or 2 in a 40ft container)

Our RoRo shipments are from Southampton and we can get your vehicle to Auckland or Wellington in around 40 days. If you have another port in mind that you would prefer your vehicle to be shipped to, just let us know and we will arrange for that.

There are 2 sailings a month for RoRo from Southampton to New Zealand, and transit is approximately 40 days, depending on which port the vehicle is being shipped to.

20 Ft Or 40ft Containerised Car Shipping:

Shipping Cars To Bahamas From The UKCars are loaded and secured in the container to prevent any movement during transit. Containers are loaded with your car only and this is then opened at destination to ensure security.

Container loadings are from London Gateway, but again, we can and will try to accommodate any port preferences you may have regarding this.

For containers shipping to New Zealand, there are weekly sailings and transit is approximately 52 days. Both are subject to schedule and change.

Additional Information

If you would like a rate for your vehicle, please contact us and let us know which port you would like to ship it to and which method of shipment you  prefer (RoRo or Container). We also need to know the make and model of your vehicle.

Kindly ensure that your vehicle is allowed to be exported to New Zealand prior to arranging shipment with us. You can check with the New Zealand Consulates in London or a clearing agent in New Zealand, but we will not be responsible for any costs arising in the instance the necessary approvals have not been attained prior to shipment.

To provide a hassle free experience for you, our valued customer, we can also offer collection of your vehicle from any address in the UK, and deliver it to our office in Tilbury Port ready for loading.

Please ensure that any rules and regulations or import requirements for shipping your car to New Zealand are approved prior to shipment, as unfortunately we will not be held responsible for any cargo that has not been suitably certified.  However, please see the Rules and Regulations for required to ship your car to New Zealand.
