Shipping a Car from U.S. To Iraq
When you want to ship a vehicle to Iraq, the U.S Customs and Border Protection needs to be notified through a Letter of Intent about the impending shipment. Additionally, to validate and verify the shipment, you will need to prepare by gathering up the right paperwork that will include copies of the following documents:
- Title of the vehicle
- Proof of purchase
- Proof of ownership
- Proof of insurance
- Invoice of any duties paid for transport
- Driver’s license or photo ID, such as a passport
- Bill of Lading
You can make copies of these documents to send with the paperwork however there are times when your original documents may be requested. You can contact the Iraq Consulate in USA to learn more about transporting.
Methods of Shipping an Automobile
There are two shipping methods to choose from. You can choose which one is right for you based on your needs.
- Roll On/ Roll Off: This method of shipping is the most affordable way to ship your vehicle because you will only pay for the space your vehicle takes up on the deck of the open ship. Your vehicle will be driven onto the deck of the ship and parked before it is transported.
- Container shipping: this method of shipping is the most expensive way to send a vehicle to Iraq. The containers are so large that you can fill them up the rest of the way with your personal and household items. Even though this method of shipping is more expensive, you can share the cost with someone else who may be going there as well.
Thus, you can pick the service that suits your requirement. As both of them are sea-freight transportation method, it takes at least a week or more to reach the new destination after it is shipped. However, when you work with us at A1 Auto Transport, we assist you at every step to ensure there is no delay or issues at the Iraqi Customs or elsewhere.
