How much does it cost to ship a car from the US to the UK?

Two ways to ship a car...container and non container. If it's a regular car (i.e. a family car that you won't get too upset over the possibility of minor scratches), the cost should be under $1500.00 USD (fifteen hundred). If scratches or dings are a concern, then you would want to ship in a container. Container shipping for an average size car should cost under $7000.00 USD (seven thousand). Insurance would be extra and should cost between 1.5 and 2% of the car's value. Most companies also add a small (about $50.00 USD) handling fee.

I just checked on having an Austin Healey shipped from west coast to Italy, I was surprised that it only costs $1500 through Wallenius Wilhelmsen Lines, who charge variously by weight and by size.

Car shipping rates vary dependent on the amount of traffic moving to that particular part of the world and distance shipped. Many shipping lines will offer very attractive car shipping rates due to the volume of return traffic they have from a particular country.
