Wavecrest Ltd is a well established freight forwarding and warehousing company based at the heart of the port of London in Gravesend, Kent.
We specialise in the movement of all types of vehicles including classic cars, limousines, 4 x 4’s, vans, trucks, motorhomes and motorcycles.
Some of our clients have included vehicle dealers, US and UK military personnel, vintage vehicle enthusiasts, premier league football players, Hollywood actors and even Royalty!
We export vehicles to countries including the USA, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Namibia, Jamaica, Malta and Cyprus. Vehicles travel aboard modern purpose built roll on/roll off (ro/ro) vessels or are packed in containers where appropriate.
Depending on destination, motorcycles can be shipped ro/ro or export packed in crates for safe transportation.
We have regular vehicle import shipping services from the USA to the UK. Cars and motorbikes can delivered to our receiving depots in California, New York and Florida or we can provide a collection service from most parts of the USA. Our ex-pat owned US agent handles export clearance formalities on our behalf and arranges for cars and bikes to be safely loaded and secured into containers.
On arrival in the UK we arrange for import clearance at the port of arrival and payment of any applicable duties and taxes to HM Customs on your behalf.
After clearance, vehicles are made available for collection from our UK depot. If it is more convenient, we can also arrange for vehicles to be delivered through to your residence at competitive rates.
If you are purchasing a vehicle from a dealer in Japan they will generally arrange shipping on your behalf to a UK port, however, they do not usually take care of the import clearance once the vehicle arrives.
Custom Clearance Services
Wavecrest Ltd provides competitively priced Customs clearance services at all major UK ro/ro ports including Bristol, Southampton, Sheerness and Tilbury.
If vehicles are shipped in containers, we can arrange from them to be Customs cleared and unpacked at one of our depots.
