Roll On / Roll Off Shipping

Roll On/Roll off car shipping to Durban

Using roll on roll off car shipping, we are able to safely transport your vehicle to Durban in the most cost effective, economical way. We offer regular services from both Sheerness and Southampton to ensure our clients are well looked after.

Using roll on roll off shipping, we are able to safely transport thousands of vehicles to Durban at any one time. Each vehicle is parked securely on board the lower decks to ensure optimum safety. Vehicles do not move on board the vessel until it arrives in Durban. At this point, all vehicles are off loaded using ramps.

Container Shipping

Container shipping cars to Durban

Container shipping is still the preferred choice among many people looking to have their cars shipped to Durban (or any destination for that matter). This method of shipping offers a higher level of security, where vehicles can be loaded with personal belongings for no extra cost. Containers are locked securely using a tamper proof seal, meaning all items within the container are safe from theft. Customs and the port authority are the only ones that can open the container without your presence, and this only happens when your container is randomly selected for checks.

Do I need an Import License?

You'll require an import license and a letter of authority if your vehicle is staying in South Africa. You can obtain a license from the South African Government and will also need to complete the LOA application prior to shipping any vehicle. Without import approval you may be liable to pay thousands of pounds worth of fines and your vehicle may even be shipped back to the UK at your own expense.

What paperwork is needed to ship a vehicle to Durban?

When shipping any vehicle to South Africa, you will need to send us copies of the following documents by email, fax or post:

  • V5C (or title document) for the vehicle
  • Photo page of the consignees passport
  • Purchase/Sales Invoice of the vehicle
