In order to ship your vehicle overseas, you will need to hire an international auto hauling company. International auto transport is a lucrative business that manufacturers, dealers and individuals can take advantage of.
Conducting research online is an important part of the hiring process if you wish to safely ship your car to Panama.
While doing research, make sure you read the customer reviews in order to see if they are worth doing business with. There are many international auto shippers to choose from. So make sure to collect quotes from at least three companies in order to find the best deal.
Types of Vehicles You Can Ship Overseas.

How Much Will International Shipping Cost?
The cost of shipping is not an easy thing to determine and prices vary greatly from person to person. An agent will be able to give you a quote in about fifteen minutes. The method of transport will also play a role in how much the end total will be.
Prices are flexible and in the long run, it saves you money. In some cases, individuals have racked up thousands of dollars on public transport. Reputable international auto transport companies offer deals to first time shippers, veterans and senior citizens.
What Happens If My Vehicle Gets Damaged?
Always contact the agent who set up your ship date to file an insurance claim. It does not happen often, but in some cases, accidents do occur. After filing an insurance claim the shipping company will investigate the case and reimburse you for your losses. If it is determined that the damages were caused by negligence of the customer, you will not receive compensation.
