Shiply's Car Transport to Ireland Guide

1.Car Delivery to Ireland

However you choose to move your vehicle it will need to travel by ferry at some point in its journey. If being imported from mainland UK then the closest port is Liverpool, meaning it’s likely it will have to get there first.

Ro-Ro ferry: A roll on roll off service is going to be the cheapest way for a car transport to Ireland job, driving it yourself can help further reduce costs. Alternatively you can hire someone to get the car to the ferry for you and either hand over to you or load it on, meaning you pick it up in Ireland.

If you can find a driver who already needs to come over to Ireland then you could save a great deal on importing it.

Trailer transport: If you’re shipping a classic car or an un-roadworthy car you may want to employ the services of car towing or trailer service. Having your car loaded onto an individual transport can be expensive, but will likely ensure its safety.

Alternatively multiple car transports do sometimes load onto ships, so finding one with spare capacity could save you money (this one’s not an option for nonstarters however).

Container shipping: Perhaps the most secure method of car shipping to Ireland would be to have your auto shipped inside a container, these can either be individual or shared, with sharing being the cheaper option.

Car Transporter Credentials

Before you hand over the keys, you want to make sure that you’re hiring a reputable car delivery to Ireland service, ask the driver some questions to make sure you’re getting a trustworthy transporter.

Insured: Any professional car delivery service will have vehicle transporter cover, you can ask to see their details if you’re unsure.

Membership: It’s not essential, but hiring a service that is part of a recognised association of car transporters can give you some peace of mind. Such associations make sure its members conform to high standards of service.

The most important thing to remember when hiring a car transporter is ask questions if you’re unsure.
