Roll On Roll Off Service (RO/RO)

Car Shipping to Mombasa via RoRo ShipsRoRo 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, Immingham, Southampton and Sheerness for Mombasa, Kenya. Our RoRo ships depart twice a month and our shipping transit times to Mombasa are between 26 to 30 days.

AutoKenya have been my partners for the last five years. They are my only go to company whenever I need to ship anything from the UK. They always deliver what they promise in terms of lead time, cost and efficiency and always ensure that I am updated about the progress of each shipment. Their staff are polite and pleasant. They go out of their way to offer a hand over and beyond what is expected of them.Kudos Sudhir, Ann and Reginah. Keep up the good work!!

Sudhir from Auto Kenya was of great help during the entire transfer and import process from the UK to KE. We had a couple of smaller and larger hiccups caused by the Kenyan authorities, but Sudhir was always patient and went to great lengths to help me. If I ever import a car somewhere in East Africa again, it will be through Auto Kenya.

I have used Auto-Kenya for over 10 years now and they are the most efficient and professional shipping company that I have come across.In conjunction with Simba shipping, you get quality service, at the cheapest rate in the market. Every time I have a challenging shipment, they have never disappointed as they also tailor the consignment arranging for pick up, packing and delivery to Africa, Asia and North America.

I had a straight forward and pleasant experience dealing with Auto Kenya. I purchased a car from the UK and shipped it to Uganda remotely. Their staff were helpful during the entire process. It's quite rare to find a UK based company willing to follow up with a call to Ugandan based customer.They also helped organise a service to pick up the car from the dealership and deliver it to the port for shipping. I would definitely recommend their services to anyone looking to ship a car from the UK.
