RORO Car Shipping to Brisbane
RORO offers a safe way of shipping a car to Brisbane. These purpose built ships carry thousands of vehicles at any one time and are renowned for their ease of loading and unloading at the ports. All vehicles are driven on to the ship and loaded inside the vessel below deck. All vehicles are secured using straps to ensure that they remain safe on board throughout its voyage.
Shared Container Car Shipping to Brisbane
Our shared container services load at our depot in Avonmouth in Bristol every week. This service allows us to lower our rates for both saloon cars, 4×4’s, vans and some motorhomes to Brisbane. If the vehicle fits within the dimensions of a 40′ HC, we can ship it for a lot less than RORO services. The advantage of shipping a vehicle to Australia by container means that personal belongings can be loaded inside the vehicle safely and for no extra cost.

Container shipping to Brisbane offers a safer way of shipping high valued vehicles from the UK. Cars are secured using straps and wooden blocks around each wheel.

We have loading facilities in both Bristol and Southampton where we can safely load your vehicle and take photographs before, during and after having it loaded.
Import Permits for Brisbane
You must first apply and obtain an Import Permit prior to even thinking about shipping a vehicle to Brisbane. The one thing to consider before you ship any vehicle to Australia is that you will firstly need to obtain this Permit by completing the application form where acceptance or denial can take anything up to 6 weeks in busy periods. See more information under the Personal Imports Scheme. If you do not have one of these permits in place prior to shipping your vehicle then you may encounter problems importing it in to Brisbane. Any vehicles arriving in Brisbane without the Import Permit will face having their vehicle shipped back to the UK at their own expense.
