Prior to Moving Your Car to Hyderabad
Before you have your car transported to Hyderabad you will want to make sure that any questions you may have about the international shipping process have been fully answered by your transport consultant. You will also need to make sure you have paid all shipping fees that are due before the car is loaded for transport and are aware and agree to of all fees that will be due when the car reaches the port in Hyderabad. A very important decision to make will be how your car will be transported. The total cost to ship internationally will depend upon the distance from the United States to the port in Hyderabad, the method of shipping utilized and the type of car that you have. Other fees may also apply if you need to have the car delivered to the port or if you will need the transport company to arrange for steam cleaning the car. Some types of shipping require that the car is fully cleared of personal items and has been steam cleaned, while other methods will not require that.
How to Transport Internationally to Hyderabad
Transporting a car to Hyderabad is generally completed either through Ro-Ro (Roll-On Roll-Off) Shipping or with Container Shipping. If you have personal items that need to be moved to Hyderabad when you have your car transported then you will most likely need to utilize a container to ship your car as well as your personal belongings. Many people will allow two containers when moving overseas. One for the car and one for personal belongings. If you only need to transport your car and nothing else then the best option would be Ro-Ro. Ships designed for international car transport are used to ship motor vehicles overseas. Cars are loaded onto the ship by driving them aboard and unloaded by driving them off the ship. Ro-Ro is widely used and is the most common way to ship a car internationally. Your shipping consultant will work with you to better determine the method to use for moving your car and will assist you with information on property shipping regulations and customs requirements that you will need to be aware of prior to shipping overseas.
