Or from our loading facility in Rainham prices start from £895.00 for saloons and £965.00 for an SUV. Our best rates are based on our shared container services that sail every week to Auckland. For larger vehicles that will not fit within the container dimensions, we also offer RORO shipping rates. Prices are determined by the overall length, width, height and weight of the vehicle. RORO shipping is the preferred if not only choice for shipping for example a larger motorhome, large van or truck. Each rate will be different and is priced per vehicle dimensions given at the time or sourced from the internet. All vehicles are measured at the port and rates may vary to the quotation given due to any decrease or increase in measured dimensions.

Roll on/roll off vehicle shipping services offers a safe method of transport for any rolling cargo, such as cars, motorhomes, yachts, tractors, trucks and any other agricultural machinery. RORO vessels are purpose-built cargo carrying vessels and carry thousands of units at anyone time. Each vehicle is secured below deck and is secured to the bed of the vessel using ratchet straps. These straps ensure that any cargo loaded do not move around whilst it is being transported by sea.

Shared container shipping is the preferred choice for people looking to ship either their saloon car, SUV, small caravan or a small van to Auckland as it works out cheaper than RORO or dedicated container services to New Zealand. 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 Shared container shipping is so popular.
