USA (as of March 15, 2020):
From March 14th to April 13th, an entry ban for USA was decided for 30 days. This applies to all travelers who have visited the Schengen area of the EU within the last 14 days. Travelers who were min. 2 weeks not in Europe ( e.g. have traveled though Canada), should therefore still be allowed to enter USA.
Canada (as of March 17, 2020):
Canada also decided to announce an entry ban for travelers.
The entry ban only affects people and no goods or freight! The cargo ships can continue to transport vehicles to North America (USA and Canada).
We can generally change or cancel a shipment of the motorhome free of charge up to one day before delivery in the port.
As soon as the entry bans in USA, Canada and Europe are over, we can reactivate a camper shipment within 1-2 weeks.
A freighter cruise (traveling as a passenger on the ship), the change and cancellation conditions of Grimaldi-Freighter-Travel apply.
Through our domestic and foreign partners we are informed about the relevant travel options and we try to deal objectively with the current situation.
We hope that everybody stays healthy and that the long-planned travel dreams can be realized later.
Your Seabridge team
Since 1997 SeaBridge has shipped more than 10.000 motorhomes overseas.
Why spent money on an expensive rental motorhome while your own one is ready to go? Furthermore European motorhomes are relatively small in size, economic and adapted to your special needs.
shipping is the safest and most economic maritime transport. Ro/Ro ships only transport cargo that can be driven into the ship over the loading ramp. Those vessels can load up to 6.000 vehicles with the maximum dimensions of 6m height, 30m length and a weight of 300 tons.
Usually the reservation must be done 2 to 3 months prior to departure. In special cases we can accept reservations 2 weeks prior to departure. Possible ports of delivery are Hamburg & Antwerp or Liverpool, Southampton & Tilbury in the UK. The motorhomes are loaded two days later. At the port of destination you can usually pick-up your vehicle two days after the ships’ arrival. You will receive detailed information about each port.
Burglary and theft belong to the past and are really rare. Both SeaBridge and the shipping company care as best as possible about the safety of your motorhome.
Seabridge for Motorhomes, founded by the Heinemann family, became the author of Mit dem Hymer Camp nach Amerika travel guide. This book emerged from various personal shipping experiences of authors and several months of travelling with their own motorhome through North America and Australia. Due to numerous requests from readers who wanted to emulate Heinemann family, Seabridge for Motorhomes was launched. Since 1997, we have shipped over 10.000 motorhomes across the oceans.
Seabridge for Motorhomes differs from freight forwarders as it provides holistic counselling, based on personal shipping experience (we know almost all ports due to our own travel experience) and more than 22 years of work routine. In addition to detailed information about the port of shipping and port of destination (including tickets, hotel & camping suggestions, shopping & gas) and some information about travelling to the destination continent our customers are also provided information about power supply, insurance, visa, documents & permits for temporary import etc.
The experience of our customers helps us keep our information up to date.
