Shipping A Car To French Polynesia.

Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?

  • Shipping costs to French Polynesia from the U.S. start at $1,500 go up to $4,000.
  • Much of the difference in cost will depend on the type and size of vehicle shipped, as well as which port it is shipped from.

Shipping a car to French Polynesia is difficult, but it is made slightly easier by the fact that French Polynesia’s import laws are attached to those of France. Diplomats can import a vehicle duty-free and with very little hassle.

Foreigners can also import a vehicle, but they are subject to pay specific duties and taxes. French Polynesia is located in the Pacific Ocean and is situated between Australia and South America. $1 USD is worth around 88 Comptoirs Francais du Pacifique (CFP). If you are looking to ship your vehicle to Tahiti, it will most likely arrive at the Pape’ete container terminal.

Expected Costs and Required Documents

All vehicles are subject to duties and import taxes that are calculated by taking the vehicles value, model, year, size, and accessories. Currently, the owner of a vehicle that is being imported into France or French Polynesia will have to pay a 19.6% value added tax (VAT).

If you are exporting from the United States (US), you will have to pay normal customs and duty taxes, as the US is not a member of the European Union. Customs duties are paid at the port of entry, while the VAT is paid directly to the government. The approximate custom’s duty for a vehicle is around 10%.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To French Polynesia.

In addition to import taxes and custom’s duty, you will need to provide the following information and documents when importing a vehicle into French Polynesia:

  1. Original title and registration.
  2. If the vehicle is new (less than 6 months old), you must provide a purchase invoice.
  3. A valid driver’s license.
  4. Non-Sale Certificate.
  5. OBL stating: state chassis, engine number, cubic capacity, year of manufacture, brand, and model.

All of the necessary shipping documentation will be provided by your shipping company. Granted that you have the necessary proof of ownership, legitimate intent, and the necessary funds, shipping a vehicle to French Polynesia is not as difficult as some countries.

Shipping Methods

We offer several shipping methods to French Polynesia, depending on your personal needs. The two most popular choices that we offer are the roll on, roll off (often referred to as RoRo) and container shipping methods.

Roll on, Roll off

The roll on, roll off method is one of the most popular. Your vehicle is driven onto the ship, securely held in place, delivered to the port of choice, and then driven off the ship. In order for this method to be viable, your vehicle must operable. If you elect to use this shipping method, you cannot store personal items in your vehicle.

Container Shipping

If you are looking to ship personal belongings with your vehicle, this may be the best shipping method for you. Your vehicle and personal belongings will be securely held in place and stored in a shipping container.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!
★★★★★

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
