Car Shipping With Belongings
There are a select few shipping lines that will allow personal goods to be loaded inside a vehicle when shipped by RORO services. As a rule of thumb, vehicles being shipped from either Southampton or Portbury in Bristol to anywhere overseas are not permitted to have any belongings left inside the vehicle when being shipped from these UK ports. There are exceptions however, so it is always best to ask further advice when booking your shipment. If you are shipping a vehicle inside a container then goods can be loaded inside the vehicle from all ports throughout the UK.
