RORO Car Shipping Vessel

Car and Vehicle Shipping Across the Globe

One of Mercator’s specialist areas is car and vehicle shipping.  Our team handle car shipping consignments on a daily basis, importing cars into the UK, and exporting cars across the globe.  Our expertise includes shipping cars, caravans, motorhomes, trucks, motorcycles and campervans.

Our car shipping services involve either a RORO service or containerised shipping.  RORO (roll on, roll off) is where the vehicle is driven onto and off the car transporter ship.  Containerised shipping can be used when a car isn’t fully functioning, or if the vehicle is of significant worth (for example classic cars or supercars).

If your car shipment is urgent, it is possible to arrange air freight shipping – a service which we can offer across the globe, please ask our dedicated car shipping team for more information.

Our complete car shipping service includes:

  • Local pick up
  • Documentation
  • RORO or Containerised Shipping
  • Customs Clearance
  • Delivery at destination

Over the years we have built up contacts and relationships with carriers and other freight forwarders in order to be able to offer our customers a fully comprehensive, tried and tested export car shipping service from door in the UK through to clearance and landing in your destination country. For UK car imports our services include local pick-up, freight through to the UK, UK customs clearance and delivery to door.
