Ro/ro information UK to South Africa
Hi all, after scouring this site and finding little information on prices for this route, thought I would post the quote for a 4x4 I just received back from Wilhelmsen. Comes in at under £1200 from Sheerness, and we can keep luggage in the vehicle from this port, though from Southampton the vehicle must be empty... be warned though that we were told there is a history of theft of personal items should anything be left in the vehicle as we have to surrender our keys on ro/ro. We are still waiting for an estimate of costs once it arrives at Durban, though to date this company has responded promptly to emails and seems very helpful. Hope this is helpful to someone,
Mark and Allison

You will not be disappointed with Wilhelmsen, my 2 nephews each to a MR2 back from UK to SA.
Loaded at Southampton to Port Elizabeth.
I think they paid a few pound under a grand each.

The service was prompt, no delays.

I got a quote from them a year ago and it was just under a grand for a 80 series Land Cruiser to PE or Durban. No difference in price.

Container to Cape Town was GBP1 200.
