Construction is a universal industry. In fact, the United States of America and China have both been hailed as the dominant figures in the past. At Jay Bee Plant Sales, we provide a fully comprehensive international shipping service to our customers. This ensures that no matter where your business is based or where the next project is located, you’ll have the equipment you need to complete any job. With over 40 years of experience, our specialist team fully understands the risks and specifications needed to take your chosen plant machinery anywhere in the world. This blog will explain this process, offering you peace of mind and security in our service.


Shipping cargo, of any kind, puts the product at risk of being damaged during transit. Depending on your requirements, we offer both RORO (Roll-On-Roll-Off) shipping and container shipping. Container shipments offer their own level of protection which we can pair with other measures, including shrink wrap, to ensure your machine arrives in pristine condition. We work with a number of experts in plant machinery shipping to ensure you receive the best services on every order.

Types of Shipment

As we mentioned above, we use two methods of plant machinery shipping here at Jay Bee Plant Sales – RORO and container shipping.

RORO Shipping

Recognised as the most cost-effective solution when shipping large and heavy machinery, roll-on-roll-off shipping is just as the name suggests. The cargo is driven on to shipment by a trained professional, allowing it to be manoeuvred into the most appropriate place. It is also safe with each vehicle or machine being monitored throughout transit.

Container Shipping

Alternatively, we can have your chosen plant machinery placed within a secure container. This is a popular choice for smaller machines and businesses looking for more flexibility. Some ports around the world are more accessible to container shipments, meaning deliveries are less likely to be delayed. And, your machine will be fixed into place with a variety of measures to ensure it does not move during transit – making the entire process safe and effective.

The Right Choice for You

The experienced team here at Jay Bee Plant Sales are on hand to ensure you make the right choice for your international shipments. We’ll work with your budget, time frame and individual requirements to get your machine to the end destination exactly when you need it.
