Roll-on/Roll-off Ferry-type shipping service

Roll-on, Roll-off (RORO) vs Shared-Container

One of the shipping options available to anyone importing a motor vehicle, is the option NOT to have your vehicle placed in a seafreight container but instead, travel on a Roll-on/Roll-off (ferry-type) service. This could possibly be an option for many reasons, and one of these could simply be that it could be cheaper. However, even if you don't want to pay out for your vehicle to travel in a Container on its own, there is sometimes the option of a 'shared' Container service. Contact our Imports team, if you would like some more information on the options available and to request a shipping quote.


To allow us to provide you with a quote, we will need to know the following information:

  • Country of Departure
  • Nearest Container Port (to the seller)
  • Total weight
  • Dimensions (L x W x H in CMs)
  • UK Postcode for delivery (and any additional delivery requirements)

  • Remember : Shipping and Customs clearance doesn't have to be expensive, but choosing the wrong agent could be! ™ ukimports
