Located in Western Nicaragua, this is the capital city of Granada Department. It is the 6th populous and most important city of the country. It is politically and economically prominent, historically rich with its colonial structure and heritage.

Those looking to import their vehicles to Granada need to be aware of associated costs. Besides major considerations, you need to factor in insurance coverage for shipment duration along with vehicle size. Car length is equally important as its weight because it decides the amount of space it will occupy. Besides inspection costs, import tax, and port import tariffs, you will need to pay the additional levy charged by Nicaraguan customs. The Treasury Department levies vehicle taxes, and it is difficult to anticipate these beforehand. It is better to depend upon shipping agency as they may be aware of the same and will help you plan the budget in accordance.

Ideally, you should do this even earlier. The vehicle should have eligibility for overseas transfer. US Federal Regulations Code – Title 19 lists governing laws.

The major U.S. ports used for transport of vehicles to Nicaragua are Everglades, Miami, and Gulfport. Different shipping methods are popular, including RORO and Container shipping.  During shipping, you may use exclusive containers or choose to share this with others. Usually these are 20 or 40 feet and you can pack your personal items alongside the vehicle. If you are on a budget, you may opt for RO-RO where vehicle uses its own wheels to get on and off the ship. Here, it remains exposed to the elements.
