How to Have a Vehicle Shipped
It is very important that all steps are carefully taken and that all documentation are presented to Customs prior to shipment. Australia really doesn't make it difficult on anyone wanting to ship a vehicle from the U.S., but is still necessary to follow instruction and to contact the Embassy of Australia.
- Title and registration.
- License or picture ID.
- Proof of purchase.
- Submission of a letter of compliance to the government of Australia.
- Vehicle must be left-handed or older than 1989.
- Fill out approval for shipment form and have it accepted.
Shipping a vehicle isn't all that stressful as long as you address every facet told to you by Customs. Make sure to keep track of everything, including your vehicle during shipment. Also, be present at the port the day your vehicle is due to arrive.
