Preparing a Vehicle for Shipping to Uruguay.
Before your vehicle can be shipped to Las Piedras, there are a few things you will need to do in order to get it ready. You will need to verify that your car is okay to ship. You will then need to go to the United States port and submit all the necessary documentation providing proof that your vehicle is clear and if not, you have permission from the lien holder to import your vehicle. There are other paperwork to include with your application such as:
- Bill of Lading.
- Original bill of sale for your vehicle.
- Detailed list of make, model, chassis, and engine number of your vehicle.
- Customs Clearance on the vehicle’s title and your driver’s license.
You will need to submit the paperwork as early as possible in order to ensure a smooth transition.

Shipping Method Options.
When shipping your vehicle to Uruguay, you will have two options to choose from. You can choose the Roll-On/Roll Off method or you can choose container shipping. The Roll On/ Roll Off method is more affordable. Your vehicle will be rolled onto the ships’ deck and fastened down for transport to Uruguay. You will need to make sure that your vehicle is completely cleaned out and only the floor mats and car jacks are allowed. You will also need to remove the air conditioning gas in your vehicle before it is transported. This will need to be done to avoid any quarantine time.
Container shipping is another option to choose from. It is, however, the most expensive method of shipping a vehicle to Uruguay. You will be given the opportunity to select a 20 foot container or a 40 foot container. You will be able to place your car inside the closed container where it will be hoisted onto the ships’ deck by way of a crane and fastened securely. You will also be able to fill up the container with any other household items you want to transport.
