The act of shipping a motor vehicle to another country is something that must be handled by trained professionals in the shipping industry. As the shipping customer, you must make sure that the vehicle meets the country’s import restrictions.
Some countries have elevated tax rates and strict import regulations, making it almost impossible to ship a car over. The Embassy of Bolivia is who you need to call to find out the import laws and tax rates.
Many international transport companies will offer free quotes over the phone or by submitting a form on their website. After giving them answers to a few questions, they will provide you with a quote. Make sure you tell them that you prefer shipping with the container method. Unless you provide them with some information, giving an exact price on the transport is difficult. Tell them you prefer container shipping and any details needed so you can get quoted for how much it will cost to ship your car to Bolivia through container transport.
Learn about Enclosed Shipping Services.
To keep your car safe from poor weather and other outside obstacles, use enclosed shipping services, also referred to as container shipping. There are some stipulations for those using this method. The transport company will gladly explain them. However, there is another plus to this shipping service- it provides the most security.
To make sure you have enough space for the car and whatever else you may ship over, pick the appropriate container size. The space in the smallest shipping container may be more than you need, so ask customer service for their suggestion. If you are moving with other people, see if they would be willing to split the cost of the container and space. All your stuff packed into the container or vehicle must have permission from Bolivia Customs to enter.
