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.

I would like to confirm that the car has been delivered to me in Nairobi. Oh! It drives very well. Thanks a lot to you and your team for the wonderful service that I got. I was kept informed throughout the process. Should I (or relative/friend) need a similar service in the future, I will certainly get back to you. It was a pleasure working together.

Fredrick M.

I take this opportunity to thank you all for the excellent services provided during the shipping of my car during the months of June and July. I have used your company on two previous times but this last one was exceptional because of the advice received from Sudhir, I want to thank him for the free storage for the car before the next available ship so that the car arrives at the time I could be in Kenya. The car arrived in Mombasa on time and with no damages at all. Thank you once again Sudhir for the advice and exceptional services provided, I look forward to using your services again. I will recommend your company to my friends.

Thank you.
