Preparing a Vehicle for International Shipping
Preparing your vehicle for its international shipping process is time-consuming. To lawfully export a car out of the U.S. and imported into another nation means that you’ll need to appease Customs with specific documentation. This includes typical paperwork for the car such as title and registration, the original invoice, and your license or ID. Other forms may very well be requested but that’s where A1 Auto professionals are able to help you. Their knowledge of exports and imports for vehicles is extremely helpful in international vehicle shipping.
Aside from collecting the documents requested for a lawful transport, the vehicle will also need preparation. This may include:
- Cleaning the inside and outside of the vehicle so that all dirt and debris is gone.
- Removing any possessions from the vehicle. This includes GPS systems, DVD players, and any other electronics or items that didn’t originally come with the vehicle when it was manufactured.
- Top off all fluids in the vehicle except the fuel. The gas tank shouldn’t have more than a ¼ of a tank of fuel in it.
- Have the vehicle looked at by professional technicians and write down any damages or problems with the vehicle. Even note any visible markings and take pictures.
