Air Freight: Shipping A Car Internationally By Plane

Published by Joe Webster.

The Benefits Of International Air Freight

Consider Your Budget - Shipping a car by plane is quite expensive when compared to shipping by another method. This should not be understated as it is a service that is generally reserved for high-end, luxury, exotic, vintage, and one-of-a-kind vehicles. Before committing to ship your car by air freight, make sure you have a good understanding of the total cost.

When you ship a car to another country, the costs include more than just how much you pay for auto transport. Import taxes (VAT), duties, and customs all factor into your final cost, in addition to what you pay the shipper. This is an important piece of information: sometimes the import taxes on a vehicle can be 50% or more of its value.

Another thing to keep in mind is that not all cars, especially American made, can be imported into other countries. There are often limits that affect your ability to ship internationally to certain countries. Examples of this include a limit on engine displacement, the age of the vehicle, and which side of the car the steering wheel is on.

The Benefits Of International Air Freight | Car Shipping.

One of the primary advantages of shipping a car by plane is that is significantly faster than any other method. This is especially true when shipping internationally as it would typically take several days to transport a vehicle from its point of origin to a shipping port, where it would then take several weeks to arrive at its final destination.

Another benefit is that there are not significant limits as to where you can ship to with international air freight. On a boat or an auto carrier, you may be limited to areas that are accessible by that method, whereas shipping a car by plane means you can get a shipment to any area that has an airstrip.

Shipping A Car Internationally By Plane

Insurance is included - As with other types of auto transport services, insurance is included in the cost of shipping with air freight. By law, companies that ship cars, domestically or internationally, must carry insurance that covers at-fault damages during the shipping process. Additional insurance can be purchased if you feel the coverage minimums are insufficient to cover potential damages.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
