Technically all cars that are shipped in a container need to be thoroughly cleaned before they leave the country of origin.

This is because they may have contaminates that are dangerous for the United Kingdoms’ ecosystem.

In short, your car should have nothing in it that shouldn’t be there. This includes bugs and other species of insects.

It’s a good idea to have it thoroughly cleaned prior to delivering it at the port.
