Shipping of cars is charged on a per car basis. The cost of shipping per
car decreases as the number of cars increases. The following table
explains the mechanism used. If you use our secure online ordering
mechanism, shipping costs are calculated automatically for you.
Please note that we will charge shipping at the actual rate if it is less
than the shown or calculated rate. Note also that if there is an error
in the calculation process, for instance the wrong destination zone is
used, then we will charge the actual rate even if it is higher than the
Shipping charges per car (UK Pounds)
