Shipping a car to the Caribbean is fairly easy and straightforward.

We’re going to make it even easier for you…

In this article, we will discuss the general processes that you will need to follow in order to successfully import your vehicle!

What is Dominica? Where is Dominica?

You may be wondering where Dominica is – and we don’t blame you.

Not to be confused with the Dominican Republic, Dominica is a small island North of Martinique in the Caribbean islands in the Caribbean Sea. If you are shipping a car to Dominica, you are most likely going to be a tourist, a local, or a remote worker, as the major industries in Dominica are agriculture and tourism.

Shipping a car to Dominica is no different than shipping a car to any other island, or port, in the world. Your two major options will be shipping your vehicles by air or sea, with sea being the most economical.

Don’t worry, we’re going to explain…

First off, we’re going to assume that you are shipping your vehicle from the United States. Most of the information provided will be based on that assumption.

However, if you are looking to ship a car from another country, the process may not be all that different. Just take a look at any special regulations Dominica has on the country you are exporting from.

Step 1: Make Sure Your Car Will Be Able to Clear U.S. Customs

You won’t believe how many people spend tons of money making preparations to ship their vehicle only to get denied at U.S. Customs.

This situation isn’t good for anyone involved.

But don’t worry, it’s not that bad…

The US Customs agency essentially needs to be able to verify that you own the vehicle, that the vehicle is paid off, and that it is legally able to leave the country.

Vehicles with outstanding debts are not entitled to leave the country, unless there is an agreement in place between the lender and the borrower.

Here is the information you (or your proxy) will need to present US Customs with.

  1. Original Title
  2. Bill of Sales
  3. Employer Identification Number/International Passport
  4. Power of Attorney
  5. Standard Shipping Form

Consider these details:

  • The original title is necessary in order to show that you own your own car. Some instances where you do not own 100% of your own car include (1) co-signing the purchase, (2) not paying off a lease or lien or other financial responsibility on the car.
  • The bill of sales is needed to show that you purchased the car. Note that you can purchase a car and not own it outright, which is why there is a difference between the original title and the bill of sales (it is common for people to confuse the two).
  • An Employer Identification Number/International Passport is needed for identification purposes. If you are not a US resident, you can use your international passport. If you are a US resident, you can obtain an Employer Identification Number from the IRS’s website easily.
  • Power of Attorney will be needed by the transport company in order to be able to ship your vehicle. A situation may arise where the company needs to make a decision regarding your vehicle during transport, on your behalf. Contacting you for a decision may not be an option, so the company will need to act on your behalf.
  • A standard shipping form will be provided to you by the transport company, asking for details regarding your shipment like destination location, and your car’s travel itinerary.

After receiving this information, US Customers will determine whether your vehicle can leave the United States.

Rest easy! As long as your car can be legally exported, it most likely will be. U.S. Customs has no reason to deny your vehicle if you have all the proper paperwork.

Remember, their goal is not to block you for no reason, but to enforce current U.S. trade laws and to make sure that all trade is done in a proper and legal way.

Step 2: Understanding the Shipping Process

Next, you’ll want to get an idea of how the shipping process itself works now that you have an idea of what to expect from U.S. Customs.

There are two main forms of sea shipping that you can use to ship your vehicle to Dominica: “Roll-on, Roll-off” shipping, and container shipping.

“Roll-on, Roll-off” Shipping

If your car is operational, you will be able to use “roll-on, roll-off” shipping. Your car will be driven into the cargo hold of a ship, secured, and then shipped to Dominica. Once the ship is docked at Dominica’s port of entry, your car will be driven out of the ship and send to its final destination on the island.

This is the cheapest form of shipping available because it is the most readily available option on the market.

Container Shipping

Container shipping happens for one or two reasons: (1) your car is non-operational or (2), you choose to use a container for your operational car.

If your car is non-operational, it cannot be driven onto the cargo hold. Instead, it will be placed in a shipping container, loaded onto the ship, and then shipped to Dominica.

One of the main reasons why you would use a shipping container is if you wanted to protect your vehicle from the elements. Some clients might feel more comfortable using a shipping container, knowing that it is secured and locked from the time the ship leaves port, to when it is docked in Dominica and the cars are off-loaded.

There are two types of container shipping methods you can choose from: exclusive container shipping and shared container shipping.

Exclusive container shipping is simple. Your vehicle is the only vehicle in the shipping container. The container is secured and locked the entire shipping journey.

Shared container shipping requires that you share the shipping container space with other clients’ vehicles. If your shipping route covers multiple legs, the container may be opened to remove other vehicles that need to be removed at their own destination ports.

Shared container shipping is less expensive. However, exclusive container shipping ensures that your vehicle is safer while in transit since no one will be able to access the container (there is no reason to since your vehicle is the only one in the container).

Step 3: Abide by Dominica’s Importation Regulations

Every country on Earth has its own import and export regulations and laws that must be abided by. Dominica is no different. Depending on your vehicle, you may need to may an import duty, customs service charge, excise tax or value added tax, and even environmental surcharges. You may need to provide documentation as well.

Another thing to keep in mind is who you are dealing with when exporting your vehicle. Make sure you know any parties that are dealing with your vehicle.

U.S. trade laws are very strict and you wouldn’t want to accidentally do business with a company that is on a denied party list, an individual who is on those same lists, or ship a vehicle using the wrong classification code.

Here’s what A-1 Auto Transport recommends…

If you are unfamiliar with the shipping process, take the time to hire a shipping company to help you out. They have decades of experience shipping vehicles and they know all the little details that you may forgot.

Things like:

  • Improperly filled out documentation
  • Working with restricted parties
  • Shipping a vehicle under the wrong classification codes
  • And much more

Having been in this business for a long time, we’ve really seen it all.

You don’t make these kinds of mistakes when you hire a professional shipping company to help you get your vehicle to its destination.

Just remember this

Those shipping cargo overseas will have four transport methods to choose from. Unless their cargo isn’t eligible for certain transport methods. Here is some information regarding each of our overseas shipping options so you get what we mean if we say your cargo may not be eligible for certain types of transport…

  • Container Transport- As the most expensive overseas transport method, container shipping provides the most protection from outside elements that could possibly damage your cargo.
  • Flat Rack Shipping- Your cargo is secured to a metal frame or flat rack then placed aboard the boat..
  • Lift On/Lift Off (LoLo)- This method is recommended to those with broken down vehicles and crated equipment. To get your cargo carefully onto and off of the ship, a crane is used.
  • Roll On/Roll Off (RoRo)- This open air service is the most affordable shipping option available. It is only offered to those with operable vehicles and equipment since your cargo must roll onto and off of the ship using a ramp.
