Our service

We have a diverse shipping portfolio specially designed to cater to our customers’ varying preferences. Some of the services that are often requested include:

The customer only has to make the shipping request and a driver will be sent to pick their car or any other item that they need to be shipped straight from their doorstep. By using this service your car is saved from the hassle of having to be constantly loaded and offloaded and you also get to speak to the person in charge of your shipment.
  • Terminal to terminal shipment. Although this service is not as convenient as the door to door shipping, it is more affordable. You, as the client, are required to drop off your vehicle at a terminal where the vehicle will be shipped from, and pick it up once it arrives at the terminal nearest to your destination. This service is not suitable for people shipping non-operational vehicles since you will have to source for additional equipment to get their vehicle to and from the terminal which adds to the cost of shipping.
  • Open-air shipping. This service paired with the terminal to terminal one make the cheapest transport package we offer. Your vehicle will be placed and secured on the back of an open-sided carrier and shipped to its destination.
