Hello everyone! I am in the need to ship a car from a well-known French automaker with a name that starts with a "B" and ends in "ugatti" from London to Dubai. I used a company's services that used to ship my cars (only within Europe) but it ran out of business a few years ago. I would not want to give the car to anyone and just tell them to ship it, for it holds a very high value.

I was thinking on calling Emirates Sky Cargo directly to see if they could handle the situation. Does anyone recommend anything else?

Thank you very much in advance.

We shipped a couple pre-war Mercedes from London to Canada a few years ago with a specialty carrier. If you can wait until Monday, I'll look at our records and find out who they were.

We used GPS Global to move three cars from the Netherlands to Canada but there were some issues with scheduling and paperwork on their end which cost us some extra money in storage fees. Your experience may be different.

In reply to ShawnG :

Sure, that would be excellent. I am willing to invest a little extra for the sake of the vehicle's safety and integrity.

I worked many years in the Air Cargo industrie I do not know Europe in the Middle East very well but I imagine if you called Emirates they would handle it satisfactorily. Here in the US I would call kalitta airlines.  Connie Kalitta started the company many years ago while also being a top notch racer.

I can't guarantee anyting but I used to work with a guy that loaded and unloaded the Formula 1 cars when Detroit had a Formula 1 grand prix. He might know of someone that can give you some advice if you come up with nothing else get in touch and I'll see what I can pull off with him I haven't talked to him in over 15 years this is a great reason to get back in contact

Maybe see who high end luxury auto dealers use? I'm sure they've been involved in shipping a car or two overseas..
