Vehicles will be shipped by one of the following methods:

  • Container Shipping 

Car Shipping by RORO

By far the cheapest method of shipping cars is by Ro-Ro vessels. These are purpose built vessels designed purely for the shipment of cars.
 
These vessels also carry non motorised vehicles like boats on trailers or nonroadworthy vehicles like heavy plant and machinery on steel tracks. From dump trucks to steamrollers, whatever your requirements, Imove International Car Shipping can help.

On RoRo vessels all cargo is shipped under deck.Secured in the hold, wind and water tight. Cars are driven on at the departure port normally Southampton, Felixstowe, or Tilbury, and driven of at your destination port.

We can arrange collection of your car from your door by plated driver or car transporter. We can also arrange for you to deliver your car direct to the port yourself.

Car Shipping by Container 

In the absence of any Ro-Ro services your vehicle will have to be loaded direct into a 20ft steel shipping container, a 40ft container if you are shipping more than one car, or you are shipping a car with your personal and household effects.
 
Great care must be taken in securing your vehicle into the container. Cars must be secured to the flooring rings of the container by ratchet straps and the wheels must be locked into position by wooden chocks.

If you are shipping a car with your household and personal effects a wooden bulkhead will be built across the container to separate the car and effects.

We can arrange for cars to be loaded into containers at our warehouse by ramp, or we can arrange for vehicles to be loaded into containers at your residence.

I was impressed by the communication. IMove dealt with all my queries and requests promptly and efficiently. The crew contacted me directly to advise on their arrival and kept to time. All together a good service and reasonably priced. Thank you.
We recently used Imove International to move all of our household items from UK to Thailand, and found the entire process from initial quote to final delivery very easy. We had a sole use 20ft container, which was perfect for the contents of our 2 bedroom house. The chap who came to do the quote was able to reassure us that the container lorry would be able to reach our house ok, as that was one of our worries. The 2 man packing team arrived at 8:30am on the Thursday and set about wrapping and boxing everything. I can't speak highly enough about how hard they worked that day - it was virtually impossible to get them to stop for a tea break. The only thing it would have been useful to know in advance at that stage was that they wanted us to remove the pedals from our 4 bicycles, and turn the handlebars so that they were in line with the wheels, but it was sorted in a matter of minutes. The following day a 3 man team turned up and completed the packing. The lorry was due a 12:00, but in fact got delayed until about 3:00pm. As the weather was good, the lads moved everything out on to the front drive in the meantime, in order to make the loading faster. I had asked the neighbours to leave the communal parking area free for the day, which made it much easier for the lorry to manoeuvre when it arrived. The loading only took about 30 minutes, and we waved goodbye to our goods, en route to Felixstowe Docks. The thing that amazed me most was that there was not a single scuff mark left on the internal walls of our newly decorated house! Imove had provided us with a link to a web portal which had all the details of our shipment updated on it, including estimated arrival date in Thailand. It also included the name of the ship our container was on, and I was delighted to discover a web site (https://www.marinetraffic.com) where I could track it's progress in real time. (Note to Imove - perhaps you could add that link to your web portal?). About a week before it was due to arrive in Thailand the agent at this end contacted us and talked us through all the paperwork necessary for customs clearance at this end. The ship arrived exactly on schedule, and we visited the agent to drop off passports, ID cards, etc that they needed to clear the shipment with customs. That went very smoothly, and when we returned to the agent to collect our documents we got to meet the driver who was going to deliver the shipment to our house in northern Thailand - a 700km journey. Luckily I was able to give him our exact location on Google Maps, which avoided the hassle of trying to explain a rather obscure location. The lorry arrived exactly on schedule, at 8:30 on a Sunday morning, and again it only took the 4 lads about 30 minutes to unload it. They did offer to unpack everything and remove all the packing materials, but we declined that, as most of our stuff will probably remain in boxes for the next few months while we build a new house here. So, all in all it was a very simple process, and very professionally managed.
The crew worked extra hard and returned on a Sunday to finish our packing. I can't thank them enough. Please feel free to select IMove with confidence. My bit of guidance or recommendation is to sort out the insurance ASAP.
