Confirm with the Federal Maritime Commission- FMC- if your auto mover has been listed as a Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier or a freight forwarder.
If you are bounding for overseas destinations, be sure to hire the services of an international car shipping firm and not a domestic one. The A-1 auto transport team is an industry leader in this regard.
Submitting the appropriate documents is important for your vehicle to be cleared by customs. You must provide documents showing proof of ownership, vehicle identification number (VIN), and valid driver’s license. If your vehicle is new, you will be required to submit a statement of origin from the manufacturer in addition to the letter permitting you to ship the car overseas.
Shipping will include both direct and indirect costs. In addition to the money paid to the auto shipper, you will also pay for custom fees, demurrage, and wharfage. Depending on the type of contract you’ve agreed upon with your auto shipper, you may also have to bear insurance costs separately. As such, find an auto shipper that covers insurance costs in their quote.
