Container Or Roll-Off?

When looking for car shipping USA, you need to take into consideration the form of shipping that you can do. RoRo – Roll on Roll Off – and containerised shipments tend to be the two standard forms, though some ports will only offer one or the other. For example, the Port of Baltimore, Maryland can only accept RoRo shipments from running vehicles, while the Port Of Houston in Texas can only accept containerised shipments of smaller vehicles.

You’ll need to bear this in mind when organising your car shipping from the USA with Golden Chariots to ensure that you are choosing the right port when organising any drop-offs.

UK Customs

When shipping cars from America, you’ll need to take into account UK customs laws before organising your shipments. While we can offer advice regarding rules and regulations you need to follow, understanding this is vital to booking a seamless import from start to finish. The type of import you’re looking to make will determine the reception your car will receive upon arrival. You can find plenty of information on UK imports and customs laws on the gov.uk website, or feel free to get in touch with us here at Barrington Freight for more information. Alternatively, you can contact Golden Chariots directly, in order to discuss specifics in relation to what vehicle you’re looking to ship and when.
