- You need to present a valid license, picture ID and passport.
- Proof of vehicle insurance as well as of ownership
- You are allowed to import used and old vehicles if they are owned by UN

Now, different methods require different considerations. If you decide to work with a shipping agency much like A1 Auto Transport service, we will be capable of helping you out significantly through the process.
The most common methods include Roll-on/Roll-off and Container shipping. The former type of transportation requires you to drive your vehicle on its wheels on a shipping deck. This is by far the most economic and quickest way to ship your vehicle oversees with a ship. At the same time, it’s going to leave your vehicle open to debris and the weather elements so it’s not always a preferred option. Another type is container shipping. Your vehicle will be safely stored within a dedicated container that you can fill with other personal belongings as well. This offers an additional layer of protection but it’s also more expensive than RORO shipping – that’s something to consider.
