Exporting / Shipping Cars from UK

cars-exportBefore you decide to undertake car shipping to any country, it is very important know what requirements are needed for importing vehicle in that country and that your car meets the required standards. It is important you consider customs implications and costs that will be involved once the vehicle arrives at designated country by contacting the necessary parties. It is important you contact the UK DVLA and advise them that your vehicle is going to be exported out of the UK so that they can strike off the vehicle from their records.

We will take care of all your export paperwork which takes the hassle out of the complication of importing cars. We will commit the entry to HMRC customs in the UK to advise them your car is leaving the UK which is a legal requirement when undertaking export of vehicles.

At Ascope shipping, we are able to assist you with shipments your vehicles from UK to Africa, Australia, America , Asia and Europe. We offer two different ways of shipping your car abroad.

  • Roll on and Roll off Service (RO-RO) – Vehicles are driven in and out of vessel at departure and arrival ports.
