Tyche Cargo shipping offer shipping of a motorhome / caravan to overseas by roll on/roll off vessels from either the ports of Newcastle or Southampton weekly to hundreds of overseas destinations including Australia, New Zealand, Cyprus and many more.
Many people are catching on to the idea that taking their motorhome or caravan abroad is a cost effective way to view their chosen country in comfort.
Transporting by RORO is very secure, the vehicle is loaded on to purpose built vessels on either the lower or upper decks away from the elements such as rain, wind and the sprays from the ocean. Vehicles are secured using straps and wheel blocks that are secured to the deck of the vessel. All vehicles are checked and re-checked throughout its voyage to ensure nothing has come loose whilst in transit.
When exporting either a motorhome or a caravan the shipping lines’ policy is to ship the vehicle as per how it was manufactured. They will not accept responsibility or liability for any personal effects contained within the vehicles.
De-gassing of the fridge may need to be completed before taking your motorhome or caravan overseas, depending on the age of it. It is worth noting that we recommend you take the gas bottles off the vehicle and purchase new gas bottles at your chosen destination. If your refrigerator does need to be de-gassed you will need to obtain a certificate to confirm that this has in fact been completed.
When requesting a quotation for moving a motorhome or a caravan overseas, it is helpful if you could provide the dimensions of the vehicle(length, width and height) including the tow hitch if it is a caravan. Rates are based on the overall measurements, i.e. the cubic metre or the linear metre depending on the country of destination.
