How to Ship a Car from California to Guatemala

Shipping a car from California to Guatemala is a simple task to complete for a professional transport company. However, it is a much different process than shipping a car domestically. Whether you are vacationing or relocating, a professional auto transport company can offer low rates for their shipping solutions.

When it comes to transporting a car from California to Guatemala, you can either have your vehicle shipped by plane or boat. Air freight cargo shipping is more expensive, but it is the most secure and fastest way to get the job done. Contact a professional auto transport company to discuss how much it would cost for you to ship a vehicle from California to Guatemala.

Methods Used to Transport Vehicles Overseas.

 Open Air Transport.

This method of transport is the most common way to transport a vehicle and the least expensive way as well. Your vehicle will be exposed to the elements, but this is still a safe and reliable way to ship a car. Make sure that you have your vehicle inspected by a mechanic prior to the ship date if you plan on purchasing this method of transport.

Enclosed Transport.

This method of international transport completely protects your vehicle from the elements and theft. If you have a very valuable vehicle, it is recommended that you purchase this method. This method of transport also allows you to ship personal belongings inside of the vehicle. This type of shipping is also the most expensive shipping solution.
