Car Packing 

A car packing service is offered at London Gateway. We can pack a wide range of vehicles into both dry van and reefer containers. Once the booking has been confirmed we will ask you to complete a vehicle delivery and inspection form, confirming the delivery details required to allow the vehicle onto the terminal. We will complete this form with the person delivering the vehicle so that both parties agree on the state of the vehicle upon arrival. We will then provide photos, if required, once the  vehicle (s) are packed and complete a DGN if required. We will ask you to confirm if the booking is hazardous. If it is, there must be no more than ¼ tank of petrol in the vehicle. If the booking is not hazardous the tank must be virtually empty and we will also disconnect the battery once the vehicle is in the container. 

 

Fumigation

Fumigation of containers can be arranged for both import and export containers. Please note that sometimes the authorities will request fumigation of a container, in the event that an inspection is not able to continue until fumigation has been carried out.
