How does it work?
To start the process of car shipping, you just need to give our experts a call and they’ll arrange a Vehicle Condition report. Once we have a full assessment of your vehicle and a complete understanding of your needs, we’ll begin arranging the shipment process.
For your peace of mind, we use only the latest in advanced shipping techniques, including specialised blocks to minimise movement. We can either deliver your vehicle door-to-door, or you can drop it off and pick it up from your nearest Santa Fe office.
We’ll always take the utmost care and consideration when transporting your car or motorbike overseas, but even with our best shipping practices in place you might want to consider one of our cost-effective Shipment Protection plans. With this additional cover, your vehicle will have guaranteed cover in the case of any unforeseen circumstances.
The regulations for importing and exporting vehicles vary considerably between countries. When you book a slot with us, one of our trained consultants will work with you to advise whether your vehicle is eligible. We’ll clearly explain the ins and outs of whichever country you want to ship your vehicle to, so you have a good understanding of what regulations apply.
The cost of moving a vehicle varies depending on the type of vehicle you own. Shipping an SUV, for example, will cost more than a motorbike, but other factors also contribute to the overall price. The cost varies depending on when you ship your vehicle, where you’re shipping to and from, and the vehicle itself. All of this will be fully explained by our experts when you get your free quote.
Enclosed Vehicle Shipping is tailored towards high-end sports cars, vintage cars and classic cars. With Enclosed Transport, special steps are taken to ensure the safety of your vehicle. It’s the more expensive option, but it’s by far the best choice if you’re shipping a vehicle of high value. For ordinary vehicles, Open Transport is the cheapest and most efficient method. It has the added benefit of greater flexibility. As there’s more space for more vehicles, the likelihood of finding a shipping slot increases.
We advise against leaving any items in your vehicle as you might not see them for some time. You should avoid storing items such as medicine, gifts or other objects you might need as soon as you reach your destination.
Take the time to get your vehicle ready for its moving journey. If possible, secure or remove any loose or speciality objects such as wide mirrors, spoilers and antennae. Try to leave your tank a quarter full as a full tank only adds extra weight (and as such, more cost). Seal or repair any gaps or tears in a convertible roof, because during transportation, fast-moving air could cause additional damage. Turn off any anti-theft devices you have installed, as it can cause significant delays if the alarm goes off or if the driver needs to access the vehicle. Ensure that your vehicle is properly cleaned so you can get an accurate vehicle condition assessment.
