How to Ship a Car from Dubai to UK ?

Container Service to Uk from Dubai (20 & 40 foot)

Containers are by far the most secure when it comes to shipping cars and personal good to countries like UK, Ireland, Spain, France, Portugal etc.

The main reason why Reef recommend shipping cars in containers is because no one will have access to your container except for yourself.

Another benefit of shipping cars in containers is the fact that your car or goods will be protected against damage during transit .

We have 20ft containers that can accommodate one car and 40ft containers that can accommodate three or four cars depending on their sizes.

Ro-RO (Roll On – Roll Off Service)

Reef Shipping Company ship cars, trucks, boats, yachts and personal effects to all left and right hand drive countries especially UK, Ireland, Portugal, Spain etc..

RO-RO (“Roll On/Roll Off”) is the term in the International Sea Freight Shipping Industry used for international shipping of wheeled cargo, which is driven on and off the vessel.

RORO is the simplest and cheapest method of shipping for vehicles & Trucks.

Vehicles are driven directly onto the RORO vessel . However, if you are shipping international oversized wheeled cargo, such heavy trucks, trailers, cranes, excavators, railway carriages etc, then using a RO-RO sea freight carrier is the only one solution for your international ocean freight shipment, But you cannot ship personal effects using this method.

By Sea:

We can load up to 2 cars in a container for export to the UK

Transit time to major ports in UK is 37 days approx.

By Air
The cost of air freight is based on the dimensions (Length x Width x Height cm) and weight of the car.
