Shipping Vehicles from UK

UK Vehicle Shipping

RoRo (Roll on Roll off)

Vehicle Shipping by RoRo (Roll On Roll Off), is a method of sea shipping refers to vessels and vehicle carriers that are designed to carry wheeled cargo such as cars, trucks, trailer trucks, trailers or railroad vehicles that are driven on and off the ship on their own wheels. Most Cars are shippied using this method as it is the most convenient and cost effective method of getting your Car to your country.

This is in contrast to Lift On/Lift Off (LOLO or Lo-Lo) Shipping which refers to car carriers and vessels which use a crane to load and unload cargo.RORO vessels have built-in ramps which allow the cargo to be efficiently “Rolled On” and “Rolled Off” the vessel at the port.
It is important to note that you are usually not allowed to ship personal effects using this method, but spare tire and factory fitted accessories are.

RORO shipping is a the most popular way of transporting vehicles from the UK to other countries, in a fast and efficient manner by using specialised ships called “vehicle carriers”. RORO shipping methods are mostly used for all types of motorised, rolling and even static cargo, which include cars, trucks, boats, buses, motor homes, travel trailers, tractors, excavators, cranes, and other high & heavy equipment and machinery.

RORO vehicle shipping is popular with clients for two reasons:

  • It is the cheapest method of international shipping. Exclusive container service is usually more expensive, while air shipping your vehicle is always several times more expensive.
  • Preparing for RoRo service takes the least amount of time. Your vehicle will simply need to be driven up and down the ramps for loading and unloading into the ships / vehicle carriers, so it will need to be able to be mechanically propelled. It allows your vehicle to be available and drivable as quickly as possible after the ship arrives at your local port because the unloading process is simple and quick compared to the tedious process of loading and unloading a car in and out of a container.
