Shipping a Car to New Zealand via Auckland

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.
