How to Export a Car from USA to UAE?
Exporting a car from the USA to the UAE is actually easier than one might think. About 50% of the UAE’s imports are motorized vehicles. In fact, they are the second largest automotive market in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). For American citizens looking to ship a vehicle overseas to UAE, the assistance of an international car shipping company is imperative. There is no easier, safer or more affordable way to ship a car to another country.
As your transport company experts, they’ll guide you through the entire process of shipping. After urging you to call the UAE Embassy for details listed in the auto import policy, the shipping specialists will help you gather the proof you need for Customs. This will help tremendously as gathering the proof required is the most tedious part of an international transport. Once all proof is gathered and all duties and tariffs are paid, provide Customs with the documentation to receive a certification for import approval.
The Safest Way to Ship a Car Overseas
Although enclosed shipping isn’t the least expensive transport method, it is still affordable and worth every penny spent. This transport method provides more protection for the car and extra space for the customer to ship over other belongings to UAE with the vehicle. There are various container sizes to choose from. The transporter will help you choose an appropriate size based on the information you provide them with.
