If you’re looking to ship a car to New Zealand, First Base Freight can help. We have been successfully shipping all makes and models of vehicle for many years from and to the UK. Our services operate weekly from the port of Southampton either by roll on/roll off or on container ships. Both services offer complete security, reliability and are equally cost effective forms of transport to Auckland, Lyttelton or Wellington.
Roll on/roll off vehicle shipping is one of the most favoured options of transport to New Zealand. The ease of unloading the vehicle at its destination, makes this a cheaper option in either Auckland, Lyttelton or Wellington. Vehicles are simply driven straight off the vessel and are secured in a holding area until it has been collected. the costs for roll on/roll off start from £970.00 for a normal saloon car and sail from the port of Southampton.
Typical costs of shipping cars in our shared container services start from £895.00 for a saloon or £950.00 for a 4 x 4. Our shared container service sails every week from the port of Southampton and only takes about 43 days to New Zealand. Our prices include all UK charges up to arrival in Auckland or Lyttelton.
If you have an expensive vehicle, we would advise you to ship it in its very own dedicated container. Your vehicle will be completely secured with wheel chocks and straps, once your container is sealed it will be craned on to the vessel ready for the next weekly shipment. We regularly ship to Auckland, Lyttelton, Napier, Port Chalmers, Tauranga and Wellington.
