Before you decide to contact a shipping service, you will need to know if your car meets certain criteria. Thousands of vehicles are exported out of the U.S. each year, but the process takes preparation and patience. Failing to meet customs regulations is the only part of this process that will make it an unpleasant experience.

Customs has regulations are designed to ensure that the cargo being imported isn’t stolen. Theft can happen while the vehicle is being transported which is why customs requires all personal materials to be removed from the car. This rule applies to shippers transporting their vehicle using the RO/RO (roll on, roll off) method. When you are transporting a vehicle inside of a container, household belongings may be transported as well but are subject to taxes.
Reasons Why Shipping Services Might Not Ship Your Vehicle.
When it comes to transporting a vehicle to Port Damietta, you cannot do so if the car is still being paid off. Only diplomats or military owned vehicles are permitted to be transported with a lien on them. If the vehicle is more than one year old or had a previous owner, the car will not be transported to Damietta. If the vehicle has flat tires, broken windows, or doesn’t meet emissions requirements it will not be transported
How to Prepare a Vehicle for Overseas Shipping.
Shippers are required to complete a checklist which will give them peace of mind and help avoid a discrepancy with the shipping service. Shippers can be held liable for fluid leaks so it is important to have the car fully serviced before the ship date. Wash the vehicle of any dirt or mud so that you can properly examine the vehicle to document scratches and other damages.
