Restrictions of Uruguay
Uruguay won’t allow you to ship used cars, if you aren’t a citizen. Citizens are allowed to import used cars if they’ve been abroad for no less than 3 years and the vehicle has been registered in the name of the owner during that period. Even when you satisfy this requirement, you still have to wait for an import authorization from the Ministry of Finance.
Restrictions on the new vehicles aren’t stringent but they will be levied with a duty, regardless of the port of entry. Shipping a vehicle here from the US will cost you between $2,100 and $4,600. Smaller and standard sized car which fit in a shipping container are cheaper to transport while larger ones might be more expensive. If you have any specific questions, you can refer to the Uruguayan Embassy in Washington, D.C.

Requirements for the Departure
Before you export your car, you need to ensure that it’s eligible for the export. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency is going to require your title for the car and it needs to be free of liens, unless the lien holder has provided you with a letter of authorization. You also need to proof ownership of the vehicle with a bill of sale with your name as a purchaser. You need to have your registration and driving license as well.
The truth is that the transporting agency should be familiar with all these details so that it can provide you with an actual quote. What is more, you might want the company to pick up your vehicle for delivery as you don’t want to go through the effort on your own. Even if you drive it to the port, you don’t want this drive to be a long one. What is more, you need to ensure that your shipping agency has operations at the port that you choose. Then, you have to choose the shipping method – RORO or an enclosed container. The former is cheaper and quicker but your car won’t be protected from the elements. This is something to consider. The latter is 60% more expensive (roughly) but it provides a lot of additional security.
