Highly Professional shipping firm. Courteous Staff, Reliable and affordable. Shipped a very expensive car to MSA and was supported all the way. If you ever need to share a 40ft container at highly affordable rates, they are the best! Thanks Sudhir and Reginah!

Shipped a vehicle with Auto Kenya in Jan 23 and the service was exemplary. They kept me informed all the time and their nominated clearing agent in Mombasa was very swift and professional. I would certainly recommend Auto Kenya to anyone.

Very unhelpful customer service, blunt email responses, and not all questions are answered, meaning you have to send follow up emails. False advertising on the website, in the end it seems they do not do what they state on their website.

Shipping Methods and Transit time to Mombasa

At Auto Kenya, our aim is to offer regular sailings to Mombasa with Short Transit Times . We always strive to get your cargo to Kenya in the quickest possible way. We ship cars through:

Roll On Roll Off Service (RO/RO)

RoRo shipping is used for shipping all kinds of vehicles and is the preferable way to ship cars, trucks and tractors to Kenya from the UK, for its cost-effectiveness.
Cars being being shipped via RoRo are driven onboard and parked onto the vessel intended to ferry thousands of cars at the same time. RoRo ships are designed to ferry cars under the deck and thus away from the elements. Vehicles are then lashed to the floor of the ship to prevent movement during shipping. Think of the Ship as a Huge Underground Floating Car Park.

We offer services from Tilbury and Teesport for Mombasa, Kenya. Our RoRo ships depart once a month and our shipping transit times to Mombasa are between 26 to 30 days.


4 x 4 ‘s
For all other types of vehicles such as tractors, trucks, tractor units, please contact us with the weight and dimensions of the vehicle for a more accurate quotation.

20ft or 40ft Container Shipping

Containers shipping is the most secure way to export cars to Mombasa, Kenya. Container shipping is also suitable for newer cars and personal items since it ensures safe shipping and theft is limited.

Auto Kenya provides UK to Mombasa Container Shipping from Tilbury, Felixstowe or Southampton.
