Shipping a vehicle from the U.S. to Guam is a process that requires a lot of preparation. Before your vehicle can gain access into any foreign country, you will need to make sure your vehicle qualifies customs regulations.
You will also need to prepare the proper paperwork to ship your automobile internationally.
Unlike moving a car within the confines of your own country, shipping one overseas is a whole different process. Having your vehicle accessible to you is going to enrich your time spent in Guam. It will also save you from having to deal with chaotic public transport and currency issues. Call the Embassy of Guam to find out exactly what proof is needed.
- Driver’s License.
- Proof of Insurance.
- Original Title and Registration.
- Original Purchase Invoice
- Import License.
Methods Used to Ship Vehicles Internationally.
- Roll On/Roll Off - This is the most common way to transport your vehicle overseas. It is the least expensive shipping solution available. Your vehicle will be rolled onto the deck of the ship and secured. In order to avoid any additional fees, make sure you have a mechanic inspect your vehicle prior to the ship date.
- Container Shipping - Container shipping is another way to ship your vehicle. With this type of shipping, you are permitted to transport other belongings inside of the container. A container will also keep your vehicle from coming into contact with the elements.
Choosing an Auto Shipping Company.
When it comes to finding the right international auto transport company for your car’s transport to Guam, you will have to do a little research. Read customer reviews about the company online. Reputable companies are not ashamed to advertise their good reputations online.
Finding the best deal can be done by collecting quotes for multiple companies. Have a conversation with an agent over the phone. Avoid doing business with companies that do not seem knowledgeable about the shipping process or cannot provide clear answers to your questions.
