Car Shipping Chennai

Shipping a car to another country can seem like an overwhelming decision to make. When shipping your car to Chennai you need to know a little about the country, and a lot of the paperwork and regulations required to ship internationally. Chennai has become a popular city to reside in. Chennai is known as “Detroit of India” because of the automobile manufacturing business in the city. Shipping a personal vehicle is a welcome benefit for those who plan on being in Chennai for extended periods of time.

Before you ship your vehicle to Chennai you will need to know where the nearest shipping ports are to where you live in the United States. Your transport agent can help you with that information if you don’t already know. You’ll also need to know where the customs port for Chennai is located so you can pick your car up when it arrives in the city. You must be present in person when your car arrives and is taken through customs.

  • Container Shipping- When you choose to use a container for shipping your vehicle to Chennai, your vehicle will be placed inside of either a 20 foot or a 40-foot container and then lifted onto the carrier ship.
  • Air Cargo Shipping- If you have a classic or luxury car that you want to arrive quickly, then shipping by air is the best way to go. Shipping by air is the fastest way to have your car arrive in Chennai.

Prior to shipping your vehicle to Chennai, you will need to fill out all mandatory paperwork. Your agent will help you with locating the paperwork needed.

★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
