Cost to Ship a Car from the USA to the UAE
The cost of shipping a car to another country is often the greatest concern for anyone in need of buying an international transport. It is a common misconception that car shipping services are expensive and too unaffordable for most to take advantage of. In reality, auto transports are reasonably priced and you’ll have a variety of options so that you can stay within your budget a little easier. Most transporters will even modify your shipping services within your financial constraints whenever there is the possibility for them to do so.
The cost of shipping your car from the USA to the UAE is dependent on a few important specifics. It is harmless to assume that the entire shipping process will cost less than a few thousand dollars. Of course, there are cheaper overseas transport services and options available, plus some seaports will charge less than the others nearby. Aside from what you pay for transport services, you’ll need to pay all import taxes before you are granted the certification of import approval through Customs. It’s best to get on top of the tariffs and duties associated with the import and to have them paid off as soon as possible. You’ll need to provide the Customs Department with the receipt.
How Your Overseas Shipping Service Costs Are Calculated
The calculation of your shipping costs is determined after several things are considered. Some of these factors include:
- The make, model, year and size of your vehicle
- The weight of the vehicle and any other cargo you’re shipping
- The distance between the pickup and drop off locations- calculated on a per mile basis
- The cost of fuel at the time of transport
- The shipping services you decided to purchase to have your car delivered overseas
Of course, other small fees may also be associated with your final cost for car shipping to the UAE. Your transporter should break it down for you so that you understand what you’re paying for. Along with the final cost, most transporters will provide free insurance protection and other perks such as satellite tracking services you can access any Wi-Fi enabled device.
