Our range of services includes:


  • We can export vehicles to many countries including USA, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Namibia, Jamaica, Malta & Cyrus.
  • All vehicles that are traveling abroad go on modern, purpose built roll on/off (ro/ro) vessels or they can be packed in containers where appropriate.
  • Motorcycles can also be shipped by ro/ro or export packed in crates depending on destination.


  • We regularly import ship vehicles from the USA to the UK. They can be either be delivered into one of our receiving depots in California, New York or Florida, or we can provide a collection service for you from most parts of the USA. Our US agent handles everything from export clearance formalities to arranging your vehicle to loaded it safely and securely into its container.
  • Once back in the UK, we arrange for import clearance, payment of any applicable duties and taxes to HM Customs on your behalf.
  • After, they will be made available for collection from our UK depot or we can deliver them straight to you at a very competitive price.


  • If you are buying a vehicle from a Japanese dealer, they would normally arrange shipping for you to a UK port but they do not always take care of import clearance once it arrives …
  • We can provide competitively priced Customs clearance services at all major UK ro/ro ports here in the UK including Bristol, Southampton, Sheerness and Tilbury.
  • If they are shipped in containers, once back we can arrange for them to be Customs cleared and unpacked at one of our depots.
