Car shipping options

There are many options available when you are shipping your car depending on the type of car you are sending and your personal requirements. For this reason, we offer all of our customer's professional guidance and expert advice, from your first contact through to your car arriving. Your car can be shipped in its own sealed container or we can consolidate your car with your household effects inside a sealed container. This combined service entails carefully loading & securing your car, building a purpose built frame, over crating vehicle and safely loading your household effects inside the container. The recommended types of containers available for shipment of cars are 20ft containers and 40ft containers.

Option A: CONTAINER AT RESIDENCE (CAR & HOUSEHOLD EFFECTS)

If you wish to combine your household removal and your car inside your own container, we would position a container at your residence on your removal day and carefully load, secure and over crate your vehicle as described above.. The remaining space inside the container would be utilised by loading and stowing your professionally packed household effects. Your container will be sealed at your door with a customs type seal, your sole use container would then be returned to the UK port and custom terminal ready for loading on to the vessel for shipment.

Option B: CONTAINER (Car Only) AT RESIDENCE, PSS WAREHOUSE OR SHIPPING LINE CONTAINER BASE

If you would prefer to have a separate container for your car or if your car is the only item you are sending, this can easily be arranged based on your requirements. A container can either be positioned at your residence, PSS warehouse or shipping line container depot and shipped through to port. (We can provide you with separate quotations for the above options & can include either, handout of your car at our warehouse including Customs clearance or handout at the port terminal including customs clearance)

Option C: ROLL ON ROLL OFF or LIFT ON LIFT OFF

This service is only available to some countries and ports but this would entail you delivering your car to the docks. Your car would be driven on to the vessel, parked and secured ready for shipment. (Handout of your car at the port terminal does not include customs clearance) We recommend that you discuss your requirements with one of our car consultants and obtain a free no obligation quotation.

4. Transit cover for your car

Every precaution is taken to ensure your motor car arrives safely and in the same condition, that it left the UK. Nevertheless, it is advisable to cover your motor car while it is in transit. We have specifically designed a transit cover protection for your motor car, which covers major risks of loss or damage. The transit cover is backed by AXA Corporate Solutions Assurance, and is based on the conditions recommended by the British Association of Removers LTD. The protection commences as soon as we take receipt of your motor car at your residence, PSS warehouse or container base. When we take receipt of your motor car, we will complete a car condition report detailing the pre shipment condition of your motor car.

Steam Cleaning of cars

As above it does depend on which country you are moving but we strongly recommend that cars and vehicles are steam cleaned prior to shipment and will be subject to inspection upon arrival. This is to prevent the entry of diseases, noxious weeds and insect pests into the country you are shipping your car to.special attention should be given to the underneath of the motor car (wheels, tyres, wheel arches, engine compartment).
