Importing Your Personal Vehicle To Grenada From The United States
Shipping A Car To Grenada
Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?
- Average shipping costs to Grenada fall between $1,300 and $3,200 from the U.S., with standard vehicle sizes being less expensive than SUVs or larger cars and trucks.
- Shipping from the Southeastern U.S. is also much more cost-effective so most transport vessels to Grenada ship from there.
Grenada, a beautiful island nation that consists of the Island of Grenada as well as six small islands in the Caribbean Sea, also known as “The Spice Island” because of the growth of spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg and mace crops, is one of the world’s largest export countries, and many people relocate to the island nation because of the beautiful coastal scenery and the economic development.
When you have relocated to Grenada and you want to have your personal vehicle with you, you need to hire a professional auto transporter that is licensed for international shipping to transport the vehicle for you.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Grenada
The agent at the transport company will go over in detail with you all that you will need to do to have your vehicle shipped overseas. They will require certain documents prior to scheduling the shipment of the vehicle. These documents include:
- Driver’s License
- Social Security Card
- Vehicle Title and Registration
- Power of Attorney Statement (Signed)
- Vehicle Insurance Certificate
You will also be required to either have international vehicle shipping included in your insurance, or you will need to acquire an international shipping insurance policy which is easily accomplished through the shipping agency. Your vehicle will have to be prepared to go through Customs when it reaches Grenada and you will need to have documents ready to present when the car arrives. Grenada requires many documents and here is a list of some that you will need.
Signed Declaration that uses the Simplified Single Administration Document(SAD) This document must include the following information:
- Name of person importing
- Bill of Lading or the Air Way Number
- Freight Charges
- Registration Number of Manifest
- Weight of Vehicle
- Description of Vehicle
- Customs value
- All Shipping Invoices
- Tax Number
- Insurance Certificate
- Import License
- Permits if needed
An entry pass will be required to enter the port and that may be acquired from the Grenada Ports Authority as long as you have your Driver’s License, Passport or National Identification Card. You will also need to purchase a stamp in the amount of $5.50 (USD) to place on the Simplified SAD document before you go through customs to have the vehicle cleared. A Senior Customs Official will decide whether your vehicle will need a physical inspection or if it can be cleared without one. You will be required to pay a Grenada Port Authority port charge and will have to acquire an exit pass so you can exit the port. Failure to comply with customs provisions can result in financial penalties being placed on your vehicle prior to clearance. You can check with the Grenada Customs Department to gain further information on necessary regulations to have your vehicle cleared through customs.
Now That You Know All of That, How Can You Ship?
It’s great to have all of the information on having your vehicle cleared easily through customs, but you may be wondering how to get your car shipped in the first place. There are two ways to ship internationally overseas and one way to ship by air. Since there are so many ports available on the sea in Grenada, most people use sea shipping when importing a vehicle. These are the available ways to ship and how they work:
Roll-On Roll-Off (Ro-Ro) – With Ro-Ro Shipping your car is easily driven onto the ship at the exit port in the United States, and then driven off of the ship when it reaches Grenada. This is the easiest and least expensive way to ship a vehicle overseas.
Container Shipping – As with Ro-Ro Shipping, your car is loaded onto a ship and then sails to Grenada. However, when shipping in a container, you will be able to pack personal items or household goods with your car.
International Air Shipping – Shipping by air is similar to container shipping because you can also ship items besides your vehicle when you air ship. This is an especially good choice for those who may have expensive vehicles, or need to have their cars arrive very fast.
The cost of shipping will vary depending on which way you choose to ship the vehicle, and your automobile transport agent will be able to give you details on rates and fees that you will need to pay for each type of shipping available.
