    What an absolutely great company, I shipped my car from Miami to Felixstowe with CFR Rinkens (terrible service, poor communication) they used American Freight Line (also poor communication and staff that don’t know what they’re doing) on this end Kingstown shipping received my car, what’s difference, I have been dealing with Mark C who has kept me frequently updated, advised me of the whole process and sorted out the HMRC side. In the future I will definitely be using Kingstown again in the future. Thanks again guys:)

    Kingstown shipping have helped me and my partner ship our project American dream all the way over to London from Kansas USA. We would definitely recommend them and they are always happy to help.

    Just shipped a car from Texas with Kingstown.
    The service and communication is first class and they make it easier to buy and transport a car from around the world than buying from a local UK dealer. Many thanks.

    Came very highly recommended and have not disappointed!
    First class service from start to finish, door to door from Canada was made as easy as buying a car within the UK.
    Nothing was too much trouble for Kingstown even answering my stupid questions!
    It has been such a success for me I am looking for another car in the USA and it will be Kingstown shipping it back!
    Rare that I ever recommend anyone but wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kingstown to anyone.

    Having never shipped anything of this size previously I thought the process would be a daunting experience however Kingstown shipping made it real easy. The communication from start to finish was excellent, I would certainly use their services again. 37' roll on roll off caravan no issues !!

    Stephen Shores at Kingstown has helped me with countless cars I’ve brought to the US from England over the years. Always on point, friendly and professional, I wouldn’t use anyone else! Highly, highly recommend him!!

    Thank you for doing a brilliant job...all the paperwork including reduced import duty application and a NOVA application as well as assisting with loading the rolling chassis onto my transporter at the depot. Just a pleasure to have working for you.

    Kingstown have shipped three cars for me. 2 times it went well, but 3rd time unfortunately there were some damage, but they were helpful to find an solution.

    Recently imported a Ford E250 panel van. Absolutely amazing service and support. All costs are clear and precise. They also ship out of Oakland which many other shippers could not do. I have used Kingstown before this and I'll use them again without hesitation. All of the staff are great. Ask for Mark.

    I have just used the services of Kingston Shipping for the second time and once again I cannot praise this company highly enough. Their service was second to none with efficient, courteous and prompt attention. Virtually continuous communications kept me fully informed step by step. It is a tragedy that there are not more companies with such well trained staff as Kingston Shipping. Thank you for your excellent service

    I have worked with Kingstown Shipping for a number of years now and never had any issues with them. They are always friendly, and efficient and willing to help.

    I highly recommend Kingstown shipping , Steven Shores returned a competitive quote for shipping my new fifth wheel RV from Baltimore to Southampton and answered any queries quickly and clearly , the trailer was shipped on the next available service , being stored , transfered and processed quickly and without damage , final invoices were all as quoted .

    Thank you again Steven for a very pleasant shipping experience.

    Best regards

    My wife and I shipped two motorbikes back to England from the Americas. The agents, that Kingstown have built relationships with were brilliant. Kingston held our hands through the process. Collection of the bikes took 35 minutes in the wharehouse in Felixstowe (a world away from some Central Amercan border crossing?) Brilliant service, highly recommended.

    After a recommendation from a friend, I approached Stephen Shores about taking my Talbot 90 to New Zealand. Friendly, good ,accurate advice, followed a little later by the actual shipping which went without a hitch. Steve was always available to field my concerns (I had never done this sort of thing before), and it was a very good experience from start to finish. Highly recommended.

    Kingstown shipping provided a very professional service that we cannot fault. As this was the first time we had shipped anything we had lots of questions all answered without any delay. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company on our experience.
