International Vehicle Shipping

International Vehicle Shipping can vary by location, there are a lot of key factors to take into consideration when shipping your Vehicle abroad:

Documenation Requirements:

  • Bill of Sale / Title / Letter of Auth / Military Orders (Generally notorized from your finance company, and can be used in Title's absense)
  • Power of Attorney - Authorizing Shipping line to export your vehicle on a vessel on their behalf
  • Letter of Intent - Who to contact, and whom to send Original Documenation to once the shipping has been complete, to enable you to collect your Vehicle, and show Proof of Ownership.
  • Photo ID - You (or some other designated person) will need Identification to pick up the car. **If you have a US passport, you will aslo need an EIN number**

Preparing Your Vehicle:

  • The gas tank is less than a 1/4 tank full
  • No Personal Belongings - Personal belongings are removed
  • Your vehicle/s is in operating condition, with a working emergency brake, and is licensed or qualified to be licensed for operation on public streets or highways - The vehicle is washed
  • There are no cracks in windshields or other windows
  • You remove fire extinguishers
  • Propane tanks are empty

Things to Keep in Mind When Shipping:

  • Age of Vehicle - Some countries have restrictions on the age of the Vehicle being imported into their Country - Contact Customs Clearing Agent in receiving Country to confirm your Vehicle meets age requirements before shipping.
  • Import Taxes - 99% of Vehicles being Exported outside of the United States will incurre charges when Vehicles reach Destination, and you should Contact a Customs Clearing Agent in receiving Country to get an estimate on import taxes. Generally this is calculated based on a percentage of the Vehicles overall Value.

Shipping Method:

  • Ro/Ro: Roll-on/roll-off (RORO or ro-ro) ships are vessels designed to carry wheeled cargo, such as cars, trucks, semi-trailer trucks, trailers, and railroad cars, that are driven on and off the ship on their own wheels or using a platform vehicle, such as a self-propelled modular transporter.
  • Container: A shipping container, sometimes called an intermodal container, is a large, rectangular steel box that is used in the cargo transport industry. The term “intermodal” refers to the fact that the shipping containers can be moved from one type of transport to another: they can be moved by ship, rail, truck, or plane.

Please Note: Transit times may vary based on loction and Customs Requirements.
