Our Team


We have more than 30 years’ experience handling shipments of cars, spares and equipment to and from worldwide destinations – much of it in the time-critical arenas of Formula 1 and World Rally Championships where there is no margin for error.

We pride ourselves in offering a friendly and professional service and giving our customers total peace of mind every step of the way.


I have been involved in the shipping and transporting of classic, vintage and racing cars and equipment around the world since 1990. I know just how important it is to have confidence that your car or valuables will arrive in perfect condition with no dramas en route.  The service I provide is geared to your specific needs and I am here for you – 24/7, 365 days a year.
