Ship Car To Kolkata
🇮🇳 India, (IN)

When you need to ship a vehicle to Kolkata, it isn’t the same as shipping it across the United States from state to state. There are certain documents that must be provided and paperwork that will have to be turned in prior to shipping. All drivers in Kolkata must obtain a local driver’s license to drive on the roadways in the city.

Before you ship a vehicle to Kolkata you will need to fill out mandatory paperwork and provide documents to the shipping company that will be transporting your vehicle overseas. The agent will go over the methods of shipping available as well as the total cost. When you import a car into Kolkata, you will need to be with your car at the customs check to clear it for entry into the country.

To find more information on customs regulations and requirements you can check with the U.S. Border and Protection Agency and they will be able to help you with the information you need pertaining to U.S. export laws and importing to Kolkata. They can also direct you to any customs paperwork and forms that may need to be filled out prior to shipping any personal items as well.

Types of Shipping Available

There are three types of shipping available to transport your vehicle to Kolkata. The first type is called Ro-Ro Shipping. Ro-Ro Shipping is a type of shipping that allows the vehicle to be driven directly onto the carrier ship and secured in place for the overseas trip. Container Shipping. When you use a container for shipping a vehicle, it is loaded into a freight container and loaded onto a carrier ship for travel overseas. Container shipping is a bit more costly than Ro-Ro shipping, but it is preferred when you need to transport personal items with your vehicle. The third way to ship your vehicle is by Air Shipping. With air shipping, your vehicle is loaded into a freight plane and flown to Kolkata. This is the fastest type of shipping when shipping a vehicle and is often preferred by those who have classic or luxury vehicles.
