International auto shipping recommendations wanted...

I'd be hugely grateful if anyone could share recommendations for international auto shippers. I've just sold a car via Ebay and my buyer wants to find a good firm that'll send an old Peugeot from London, England to Portland, CA. Many thanks!

Portland, Oregon?

If the car would fit in a standard shipping container, that might be the cheapest option.

Perhaps you could contact the British International Freight Association and ask for a recommendation? The DMOZ UK Freight Forwarding category lists at least two that handle autos: Autoshippers and Karman Shipping Ltd.

With google I found an interesting article on the opposite problem, shipping autos from the US to the UK, that might contain some details of use to you and it also lists Autoshippers.

Response by poster: Thanks for the tips. I meant Oakland, CA... but it should all be sorted now. Future tips for anyone - containerisation is two or three times more expensive than sticking the car on a Ro-Ro.
