Roll On Roll Off

Roll On/Roll off car shipping to Durban

We are able to transport your vehicle safely to Auckland using roll on roll off car shipping services. This is considered to be the most economical, cost effective way of doing so.

Our weekly service means we are able to transport thousands of cars and vehicles to Auckland at any one time. Securely parked on the lower decks of the vessel, all vehicles are safe and secure with a high level of security. Vehicles won’t move at all until the vessel arrives at its destination in Auckland, when they are eventually off loaded using ramps.


Container shipping cars to Auckland

Container shipping is the preferred choice among people looking to ship their vehicle to Auckland. With an increased level of security and the option to ship your vehicle with personal belongings for no extra cost, it’s easy to see why container shipping is so popular.

All vehicles are locked away with a tamper proof seal, protecting them from the threat of theft. Customs and the port authority are the only ones that can open the container without you being there, which only happens when your container is randomly selected for checks.

Quarantine Inspections and Compliance

Duty and/or GST may apply if you haven’t owned your vehicle for 12 consecutive months preceding your departure to Auckland. If you wish to comply, you can obtain a Compliance Certificate from the manufacturer of your vehicle which outlines how to comply with the New Zealand standards.

All vehicles are subject to a physical inspection by MAF Biosecurity New Zealand (MAF). It’s extremely important that you have your vehicle thoroughly cleaned and vacuumed prior to shipment, paying particular attention to wheel arches, the underside and engine compartment and interior, as well as passenger and boot compartments. The New Zealand Customs website will provide you with all the information you need regarding this.
