I shipped my Land Cruiser from the UK to Maputo Mozambique with Anon Shipping company and the company arranged the pick up from Nottingham, to the port, into the ship and to Maputo without any issues. Andrew was helpful in giving details on when the next ship was leaving the UK and making arrangment for the truck to be picked up. I have recommended Anon shippers to a few friends who want to ship cars from the UK. Good job Anon.
