Working alongside many of the world’s largest shipping and highly experienced haulage companies, our knowledgeable team at Mercator Cargo are able to organise the timely delivery on car shipping to national and international locations. At Mercator Cargo we are able to arrange haulage of your car from a location to its final destination worldwide.

There are frequent Ro-Ro services (roll on – roll off car transporter ships) from the UK to international ports organised by Mercator Cargo who are well practiced at balancing the most cost effective and fastest delivery services for your car to be shipped to its destination.

Cars transported to destinations worldwide can be relocated in our shipping containers that are always inspected prior to shipment.Soft webbing secures each car into place in the container to ensure that no marks are left on the vehicle during transportation. The container is then sealed and secured by our packers to safeguard the car from damage. With these regulations in place high value cars are safe in the hands of our Car Shipping specialists at Mercator Cargo.

Vehicle shipping is also available by road whereby individual vehicles can be transported on the back of a trailer. Through Mercator Cargo’s global network of independent freight forwarders we can offer fast and economical transportation of your vehicle nationally and internationally.
