International Car Shipping Rates
Car shipping rates vary from country to country, this could be due to the size of the vehicle being shipped or something simple like the frequency of service to a certain destination. The more popular the route of sailing the cheaper your car shipping rate will be. Saloon cars will always be cheaper to ship than say a 4 x 4, as volumetric size becomes the important rate factor when working out costs for shipping any vehicle overseas by roll on/roll off. For example the car shipping rate for a saloon car to Australia is £825.00, whereas the 4 x 4 will cost on average £1050.00. Vehicle size plays an important factor when working out the shipping rates.
The only time that the volumetric size is not taken in to account is if your car shipping rate involves it being shipped inside a container. The container shipping rate is based on the size of container and not on the vehicle that’s loaded inside it. So for example a 20ft container rate to Jebel Ali will cost on average £875.00 for either a saloon car, 4 x 4, small van and some caravans depending if they fit comfortably inside it or not. Your vehicle shipping rate will only be charged based on the container and not what the make and model of it is loaded inside it.
