We specialise in shipping motor vehicles from Europe to over 100 destinations around the world.
A selection of different car shipping options are available - cars can be shipped in 'sole use' or shared containers or on the enclosed car decks of ocean-going RORO car ferries.
Container shipping encompasses a number of different options. We offer 20 ft or 40 ft FCL 'sole use' container services, with only your vehicle(s) in the container, to various ports around the world. This involves your car being secured within a container with straps and wheel chocks to hold it in place. You effectively pay for the sole use of the container, for your vehicle(s) only. (A number of options are available - at extra cost - should you have other goods and wish to ship them at the same time.)
Santa Fe is one the world’s leading removals companies and car shipping is one of its core services. Santa Fe Relo is fully bonded members of FIDI (International Furniture Movers Association).
We also have frequent shared container services to Australia, NZ, USA, UAE, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Africa, Canada, and other key destinations around the world. Your car is loaded into the container, you pay only for the space taken up within the container. We then load the rest of the container with other goods (baggage, personal and household effects). Your vehicle is fully enclosed in transit.
Again, a number of options are available - at an extra cost - should you have other goods and wish to ship them.
Ocean-going RORO car ferry
Selected port destinations are also served by ocean-going roll-on, roll-off (RORO) car ferry services. Such vessels are purpose-built car carriers, used by manufacturers to deliver brand new vehicles around the world. Cars are protected from the elements in enclosed car decks and are secured by straps and chocks. Service frequency is usually once or twice a month, and the transit time is sometimes longer than for container vessels, but there can be useful cost savings on some routes over container shipment.
