Vehicle Shipping


Pointers before shipping Cars From the UK

As shipping agents, we must inform customers of the necessary legal requirements for

exporting a vehicle from the UK. This means the customer must meet the necessary export

standards for ease in the shipping process. Before shipping, the customer is expected to

consider the customs implications or duties and fees involved in the country of destination which

will be best explained by a Customs Clearing Agent in that country. Before exporting from the

UK it is imperative to contact the UK DVLA informing them of an intention to export the

vehicle, so they can strike it off their records. On the other hand, we as agents attend to the

more rigorous paperwork to meet the demands of the shipping line on the customer's behalf, as

well as entering vehicles for HMRC customs clearance.

Container Shipping Service (20 & 40 foot)

Through our container service, customers can export vehicles or personal cargo in a private container. Depending on the number of items, we offer both a 20ft container and a 40ft container on a rental or purchase basis.

A 20-foot container can accommodate one vehicle and a few personal goods, whilst a  40-foot container has room for two cars and a few personal effects. The reason Containers are often sought after for shipping is that they are the most secure when it comes to shipping cars and personal goods internationally, this is because access to the container is reserved for the shipper and no one else.

A major benefit however of shipping cars and items in containers is the fact that your car or goods will be protected against damage during transit as goods will be properly strapped within the container after which the container is then shut and sealed. One thing we can assure you in TEKS is that no matter the items, we will make sure they arrive at their destination on time and in perfect condition. In addition, you will come to find that our rates are very reasonable and that the shipping line we use, often maintains high standards of operation. Customers that require storage and loading assistance can also deliver items to our depot in Essex, where seasoned professionals can assist in strapping and securing the merchandise within the container.


Roll on Roll off Vehicle Shipping Services (RO/RO)

RoRo shipping involves transport using vessels designed to carry wheeled cargo, such as Cars, 4X4s, Vans, Minibuses, Trucks, Tractors, Coaches, and Buses, that are driven on and off the ship on their wheels.

RoRo vessels have built-in ramps that allow the cargo to be efficiently rolled. Cars are driven directly into the Ro/Ro vessel and secured to the car decks securely inside the vessel, wind and watertight.
