Hi All, I'm looking for a shipping agent who can assist with shipping a car from South Africa to New Zealand. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

You have a lot of confidence in my old employer? I would then try to put the car inside a container with tie-downs. On an open flatbed, you also pay for the space above your slot that can't be used.

Johann Swart brought a white RX-7 from Japan by another company and the car stood on deck. He had to polish for 6 months to get the soot from the ship's engines out of the paint.

Totally off subject - Once a load of Reefers (cooled containers) were loaded on a ship, plugged in and we left Japan for the UK. Well the English Chief mate, who is in charge of cargo were not the sharpest knife in the drawer. When we got to the UK, out of this container came a 500 Mercedes at -20C. The empty reefer was used for general cargo and that was the coolest Merc I have ever seen.

My sis in law works for their head office in CT.
I obviously expected inside a 6m container below deck of possible. You only lose your container if the ship goes down :smoker:

Hi Kevin,

Ouch, looks like South Africans get taken advantage of in the same way as Kiwis... to ship a car from UK to NZ is the equivalent of R30k. I guess it's all about economies of scale and all those usual excuses...

Thanks for taking the time for posting the info, I'll contact British International and ask for a quote.

Cheers
Jules

Hi, maybe this info will be useful to someone now. I only trust this company to transport my car (this one shipvehicles.com). I take this issue very seriously, to be honest, all the issues that arise in my life. Therefore, I will not trust anyone with my swallow. But unfortunately, I don't know if they work with New Zealand. So, I think they ship cars all over the world. In my opinion, a good transport company must be verified so as not to get into trouble.
