Is Shipping a Vehicle to Gold Coast Difficult?
Shipping a vehicle anywhere outside of the United States poses its difficulties but only because there are necessary steps that must be taken and documents that will need to be presented.
- 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.
Be sure to carefully track everything in regards to shipment. Even be sure to know where the vehicle is at all times during shipment and exactly what route it is taking. Know which port it will arrive at and when so that you can be present when it arrives.
Shipping Methods Available.
The shipping methods available to you include air shipping, RO/RO shipping, and container shipping. All of these methods work just as well, but they differ immensely.
Air shipping is a great method of shipping a vehicle, but is so expensive that many are unable to afford it. So many opt for other methods of shipping.
The container method will allow you to ship other belongings with the vehicle. You can fill the vehicle with property as well as the rest of the container. The container can be shared with another person to ease the costs. There are usually two different container sizes to choose from.
RO/RO shipping is the method of shipping that allows the vehicle to be shipped alone and at a cheaper cost. The vehicle must be empty and contain nothing but the floor mats, a car jack, and a spare tire.
