Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?

  • From the U.S., it usually costs from $2,200 to $5,600 to ship a car to India.
  • Most cars transported to the area come by way of a shipping container, which can accommodate most standard cars. For larger vehicles that do not fit in a container, the costs are generally higher.

*Prices and times are estimated. They can vary depending on the season and the type of vehicle.

*Save the ground transport cost by delivering the vehicle to the nearest port.

*Allow an additional 10 days to process the documents.

*Prices are for 1 car in a dedicated 20ft container. This is the safest and most reliable way to transport a vehicle internationally. Other items may be included in the container to help save you money when moving.

*Using the RoRo (roll on, roll off) method is less expensive and shipments can be completed in fewer days. Contact us now for a free RoRo quote.

Importing your vehicle to India doesn’t have to be a big hassle – you can eliminate much of the potential for hang-ups and complications by hiring a transport company that is experienced and very familiar with all of India’s regulations .

ship-your-car-to-india.jpg

When you do hire that transport company, the first thing they will want to know is the size and model of your vehicle, because the space it takes up on board a ship is important. They will also want to know whether you intend to export the vehicle via the Roll-on/Roll-off method (RORO), or in a standard container. The differences between these two methods are fairly significant, for one thing in cost, and for another in protection.

A vehicle shipped via RORO is driven on and off a ship by its own power, and is generally on deck or at least exposed to the elements in some way, whereas a vehicle shipped in a 20-ft or 40-ft container is securely blocked and lashed inside the container, and hoisted on and off the ship by a crane. The cost of your shipment will also be impacted by whether you drive your vehicle to the port of departure, or your shipping agent retrieves the vehicle from your residence. Obviously, the door-to-port service would be more expensive.

If you are shipping an expensive vehicle or a classic car to India, you will probably want to secure the maximum protection for it and containerize the vehicle for the journey, thus avoiding any possibility of bad weather or any other kind of shipboard harm that might befall it. Another advantage of shipping via container is that you can ship your household goods in the container, separate from the vehicle itself. No goods are allowed to be shipped inside the car, so all household goods must be in a separate area within your container.

International Shipping Requirements

You must notify U.S. Customs and Border Protection of your intent to ship the vehicle prior to its arrival at a departure port. At the departure port, you will be required to demonstrate legal ownership by presenting an original title, and if there are any liens against the vehicle, you must also have a notarized document confirming the lienholder’s approval for allowing the vehicle to leave the country.

A valid U.S. driver’s license will also be required of you, as well as proof of insurance, and a bill of sale showing that you purchased the vehicle in the U.S. The car must have no more than ¼ tank of gas in it, and that is needed in case the vehicle is to be driven on or off the ship, or at any point during handling at port. One set of keys must be left in the vehicle for that purpose, but nothing else may be left inside it.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To India

  1. Passport (original)
  2. Manufacturer invoice (original)
  3. Proof of insurance policy
  4. Import license
  5. Title & Registration
  6. OBL (ocean bill of lading)

*Duties on most vehicles imported into India typically run more than 100% of the value of the vehicle

Cost of Shipping

Some of the factors that are included in the total cost of shipping your vehicle are described above, i.e. the kind of pickup and delivery to port that you choose, and the method of shipment overseas are both fairly significant costs. Then too, there will be taxes imposed by Indian Customs upon entry into their country, and the exact amount for that is discretionary. There will be variations in cost depending on which of India’s ports is the destination, perhaps Mumbai, Chennai, or Vizag. The U.S. port of departure will also influence cost because it could add significantly to the total transit time.

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To India

heavy-equipment-shipping-india.jpg

Transporting heavy equipment or oversized cargo to other countries from the United States is something that only professional transport companies should handle. Complying with foreign import policies is tough enough but it’s not all that must be done to ensure a safe overseas delivery. Luckily, there are hardly any types of heavy equipment or oversized cargo that A1 Auto Transport can’t ship internationally and at an affordable rate.

We’ve shipped everything from industrial, farming, mining, paving, construction, hydraulic, and engineering equipment to places all over the world. In fact, some of the types of cargo we’ve delivered outside of the U.S. for our customers include…

TractorsMotor GradersLoadersPile Drivers
BalersExcavatorsCranesRVs
BackhoesAsphalt PaversPontoon BoatsLarge Vehicles
ForkliftsSkiddersEnginesHaulers and More…

The International Shipping

There is a lot involved in the shipping process for heavy equipment. It takes the use of durable, high quality haulers and shipping equipment. Due to our resources, we are able to offer our customers four different overseas shipping methods. The shipping methods available to you are determined after you provide us with some details regarding the cargo you’d like to ship to India.

  1. Flat Rack- your cargo is secured to a metal frame that is placed atop the ship. Since this is an open air service, we may shrink wrap your cargo if poor weather is in the forecast.
  2. Container Shipping- as long as it’s feasible, your cargo is protected within a 40ft shipping container. This enclosed shipping method is slightly more expensive than that of our open air services.
  3. Roll On/Roll Off- with this open air service, your cargo must be operable so that it can be driven onto and off of the ship using a ramp.
  4. Lift On/Lift Off- your inoperable vehicle or crated cargo is lifted onto the ship and off of the ship using a crane.

Although all of our transport options are created with safety at the forefront, we provide each of our customers with insurance coverage according to state minimum. If you wish for additional protection, we do offer other insurance packages.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
