The need to ship a car to another country becomes necessary for many people eventually, especially those who end up relocating internationally. The process of transporting a car overseas isn’t something that the untrained or unprepared person can take on alone.
Luckily, there are tons of international transport companies in the U.S. that are willing to carry out the shipping process. This only ensures that your car is lawfully and safely imported.
By using the latest shipping gear and the hands of their trained employees, a transport company will have the capability of getting your vehicle into Chile. Of course, your car will need to comply with the regulations set by the country or a transport may not even be possible. For example, expats are only permitted to have newer vehicles imported into the country. Contact the Embassy of Chile for the current auto import policies
Chile Auto Import Regulations and Documentation.
Following the import regulations set by the country isn’t simple. The Customs department will need specific documents and forms, providing proof of compliance before they can approve the vehicle’s import into Chile. Your professional transporters will help you gather what is needed.
- License and International Driver’s Permit.
- Vehicle Title and Registration.
- Original Bill of Lading.
- Original Proof of Purchase.
- Proof of Insurance.
- Notarized Description of Vehicle.
Make sure you gather all of the necessary documents before you ship a car to Chile. The car must meet all of the restrictions and regulations or it will be turned away and forbidden to enter the border.
