Service Modes for Shipping a Vehicle to New Zealand

Dedicated Container

If you want to send personal items with the car, you might want to choose this option. The vehicle will be placed into its own private container, fixed securely in place. The remaining spaces can be used for your goods. A potential downside, though, is the cost, which means that it might not be appropriate for people who are on a budget.

Consolidate Container

In this model, the car shares the container with two or more other vehicles. This method of shipping an automobile is often one of the cheapest ways of car shipping to New Zealand.


This method is the most affordable shipping option but sailing to New Zealand is very seldom. It uses a special Roll On Roll Off boat that has been designed to cater to vehicular transport. This unique transportation method means that there is a slim chance that your car will be damaged using this way. However, these vessels aren’t willing to accept responsibility for anything that isn’t associated with the vehicle. So, you can’t ship any personal belongings with the car.

Air Freight

The third and final option is to use an air freight service. This service will allow you to fly the vehicle into the country. While this increases costs, it decreases shipping time. By discussing each of these options, you should have a better idea of which one might best suit your needs
