Roll On/Roll off car shipping

Shipping cars to USA on our roll on/roll off services is by far the cheapest form of transport from the UK. This safe, affordable way of exporting a vehicle from the UK is now a favoured option by leading manufacturers across the world. Our roro ports are Baltimore, Brunswick, Jacksonville, New York, Charleston, Port Hueneme and Tacoma. Our services operate either weekly or fortnightly from and to Southampton.

Roll on/roll off vessels offer a secure way of shipping any rolling cargo, from cars to vans, trucks and trailers to motorhomes and caravans easily. All vehicles are driven or towed on to the vessel where they are then secured to the lower decks using straps to the front and to the rear of each vehicle. Professional vehicle handlers are onboard to check each strap throughout its voyage and will ensure that all vehicles remain safe and secure throughout.

When shipping a vehicle inside a container, our loaders will secure each wheel using straps that are then secured to the bed of the container. This safe loading technique which has been in operation for many years means that your vehicle is secure whilst in transit. This technique means that there is very little movement inside the container which ensures that your vehicle is safe throughout its voyage to the USA.
