Motorhome Shipping

Unsworth are the leading specialist exporters of motorhomes from the UK and EU to destinations within New Zealand, South Korea and Australia.

Our tailored services offer reliable solutions for motorhome shipping by roll-on, roll-off ferry service or containerised movement, depending on the size and dimensions of the unit. Due to our large volumes and relationships with strategic carrier partners, we can offer the most competitive shipping rates on the market.  

Our aim is to provide fast, reliable and secure services to make the shipping process easier and cost effective, and our method has been refined through continuous improvement.

UK Delivery or Collection

Once you have sourced your new unit, you can either deliver directly to the port or we can collect it from an appointed UK address.

Used units or units coming from the EU must undergo a fumigation process prior to arriving at the port. You can either deliver to one of our MPI (Ministry for Primary Industries) approved fumigation centres or we can collect it from an appointed UK address.

Unit receipt at the port

Upon receiving the unit at the port, the stevedores (Ro-Ro Operators) conduct a thorough documented condition report, which will be available to you on the Unsworth RV platform.

Valeting

We offer a full valeting service on all units, including a hand wash, steam cleaning or jet cleaning. As well as receiving your unit in mint condition, having your unit valeted ensures MAF (Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry) compliance, reducing the risk of delays on arrival.

Fumigation

New Zealand and Australia have imposed strict controls on caravan imports to reduce the risk of Brown Marmorated Stink Bug contamination. We are fully compliant on BMSB procedures, having MPI approved fumigation centres in the UK and across Europe.

For new units with UK origin, fumigation is not required. However, it is required on all units coming from EU, new and used.

Loading on the Ro/Ro Vessel

Loading of Ro-Ro vessels is very carefully planned with different types of vehicles segregated to different decks so appropriate types of vehicles are loaded together. The unit is driven on to the Ro-Ro vessel where it is tightly secured to the vessel floor with straps.
