Car shipping to New York is one of the quickest ports to ship vehicles to from the UK with First Base Freight. Our weekly roll on/roll off and container services take approximately 8 days from departure to arrival in the USA.
When shipping cars to New York by roll on/roll off they are shipped to port Newark in New Jersey and not New York as this is a container terminal only. Newark is approximately 30 minutes drive from New York but is by far the favoured port to ship vehicles in to, with only 8 days transit time what's not to like.
When shipping cars to Newark by Roll on/Roll off from Southampton, the costs for a saloon car is £745.00 and 4 x 4's are £825.00. This rate is for the ocean freight only, additional fees for UK collection will vary if this is required as the cost is worked out on the mileage to the port. The other fees to consider is the arrival fees in to the USA and the ISF filing charges. Our extremely reliable partner in the USA will be able to advise and calculate your fees prior to your vehicle being shipped from the UK. No nasty surprises, just straight forward costs. Forewarned is forearmed as we say.
As well as offering a reliable roll on/roll off service to Newark we also ship dedicated 20ft and 40ft containers to New York. Our container shipping rates are not as cheap as our roro prices but the service offered is second to none. This weekly service still only takes 8-9 days transit time from the UK however container shipping to New York offers added security for high valued vehicles or for non running cars.
We can collect your vehicle from anywhere in the UK, Scotland, Wales or Ireland by using either a Qualified Plate Driver or on an open or enclosed vehicle transporter. Your vehicle will be professionally handled from start to finish ensuring a safe and secure transit to the USA.
