What is the Cheapest Way to Ship Vehicles Internationally?

There are many potential companies when selecting an auto transport service to ship your vehicle internationally, but only a few that will truly go the extra mile (or 10,000) to ensure you are a happy customer.

By taking the following advice, you can find a reputable auto transport company that meets your needs while still offering you an affordable rate.

Shop Around

Before even picking up the phone, do a little research to ensure your first contact is decent. You can begin by performing a simple Google search, and after narrowing down the possibilities based on their transport range, check reviews. Also, verify they are in good standing with the Better Business Bureau. All of these factors are hugely important, but a good first impression when you do make contact is also key. Does the agent sound professional? Knowledgeable? Are they pushing you to make a commitment or do they seem content to let you make your own mind up? An exceptional auto transport company knows there is nothing gained by forcing your hand, and will simply let their prices and reputation speak for itself.

Verify Import Regulation

Depending on your destination country, all import laws differ, and some don’t allow the transport of a used vehicle, or simply put a limitation on the year, make, or model of the vehicle. Exceptions are often made for vintage or classic cars, but you will want to double check with the country’s Customs before making the decision to ship. Many countries do allow an open-ended regulation for shipping any vehicle but will gauge you when it comes to importing taxes and fees, sometimes charging in excess of the vehicle’s value. An honest import company will be upfront about these financial repercussions, but they don’t always know offhand the specifics. For this reason, it is imperative you do your own research before deciding to ship your car internationally.

Compare Apples to Apples

When obtaining competitive quotes, you will want to ensure that they all cover the same essential requirements. If you don’t, you may end up with quotes all over the board, and the most appealing one may end up being more expensive in the long run. Verify that the company carries at least the minimum required level of insurance, more if you feel it’s warranted. Also, determine if you need door-to-door transport versus port-to-port. Finally, do you require a closed container or an open carrier? All of these things contribute to cost and determining the best course of transport for your vehicle. Also, a truly comprehensive auto transport may include import taxes and fees in the quote, but most do not, so take that into consideration as well before making your decision.
