"We would highly recommend Kevin to anyone looking to purchase a car for their time in Japan. He made the whole process so easy for us and sourced a car that ticked all the things we were looking for at a great price. When our time came to leave Japan we then needed to sell the car and Kevin completely looked after that process too. Thank you so much Kevin.

Export Car to the UKAll vehicles shipped to the U.K. are via purpose-built car carriers known as RORO vessels (Roll-on Roll-off). Each vehicle is driven inside and securely fastened to the internal decks making for the safest marine transit possible.

The shipping schedule to the U.K. is quite regular and there are always a number of these vessels departing every month.

Shipping from Yokohama to Southampton is usually around 40 days.

For more information regarding shipping please do not hesitate to contact me.
