Most shipments to Nicaragua leave the United States by one of three ports, Gulfport, Miami, or Port Everglades. The methods of shipment will either be the door-to-port (the vehicle is picked up right at your home and delivered to the port of destination), or port-to-port (you drive the vehicle to one of the exit ports in the United States before it ships). When it is shipped, the vehicle can be put in an exclusive container (the most expensive option), a shared container (slightly less expensive), or shipped via RORO, which stands for ‘roll-on/roll-off’, and means your car will be driven on and off the ship under its own power, and will most likely be exposed to the elements during transport.

Other Costs For Shipping A Car To Nicaragua

The shipping considerations mentioned above are big factors in the overall cost of shipping your vehicle to Nicaragua, but they are not the only factors. There are a few additional things that will affect the cost of transporting your vehicle, such as the amount of insurance you want to carry for the duration of the shipment (if any), and the size of your vehicle. For shipping transport, the length of your car is more important than its weight, because it is the length that determines how much space it takes up. There are also certain to be import taxes, inspection costs, and any other port-imposed tariffs which Nicaraguan Customs decides to levy. The Nicaraguan Treasury Department also retains the right to levy taxes on your vehicle, and these cannot always be anticipated. Your shipping carrier will probably be aware of most of these, and can help you plan for them ahead of time.

When you have decided on your shipping method and you have factored in the extra costs, your shipping carrier should be able to give you a fairly accurate quote for the entire operation.

Nicaraguan Requirements

Nicaragua permits either used or new vehicles to be imported unless the vehicle is over ten years old – in such cases, it cannot be imported unless it is designated a classic. In any case, assigned taxes will be based on the car’s value and model.

When going through Nicaraguan Customs, it is best to have the car prepared in the manner that Customs officials prefer:

  • Cleaned inside and out.
  • Gas tank is ¼ full.
  • No leaking fluids.
  • Anti-theft devices and alarms disabled.
  • No loose parts, no openings or tears.

The paperwork required at both the origin and destination ports can usually be handled by your shipper, and the shipper will advise you on whatever documentation you must submit. To avoid hassles in either the U.S. or Nicaragua, you should be aware of these issues as well.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Nicaragua

  1. Documentation. You’ll need copies of your driver’s license, passport, and some form of proof of ownership – these will be required by Nicaraguan Customs.
  2. Certification by the Nicaraguan Consulate within the U.S.
  3. Commercial purchase agreement or invoice.
  4. Original Bill of Lading.
  5. Your vehicle must be eligible to be shipped to another country. The exact laws governing eligibility are listed in Title 19 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations, but in general, refer to the documentation requirements and rules regarding lienholder permission.
  6. Certificate filed with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. This is one of those areas that may be handled by your shipper, but be sure and confirm this. Documentation must be submitted to this agency at least 72 hours before the vehicle can be exported, and it is advisable to allow even more time.
  7. Passport.
  8. Original title (from U.S.)
  9. Registration. Click here to learn more about vehicle registration process in Nicaragua.

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Nicaragua

Hiring a well established, professional international transport company to send your heavy equipment or oversized cargo from the U.S. to Nicaragua is the safest and most appropriate way to have your equipment delivered. With all that is needed to carry out a successful transport and all the foreign import laws that you must pay mind to, it’s wise to let trained and qualified transport specialists handle your overseas transport. Fortunately for our customers, it doesn’t cost much to purchase overseas shipping services through A1 Auto Transport.

At A1, we have the ability to transport nearly any type of heavy equipment or oversized cargo because of our access to the best and most up-to-date shipping equipment and technology. The types of cargo we can and have shipped to other countries in the past include farming, engineering, mining, agricultural, construction, paving, industrial, and hydraulic equipment. No matter what kind of equipment you have to ship to Nicaragua, we can guarantee it’s successful and safe delivery.

A1’s International Shipping Methods for Oversized Cargo and Heavy Equipment

When you call in to discuss your options, schedule your transport, and receive your total cost for shipping services, our representatives will be able to inform you of your options. Not all customers will have the advantage of choosing between all four of our overseas shipping methods. However, to provide you with a little information regarding what we have to offer overall, we’ve listed each method and briefly explain them...

  • Roll On/Roll Off (RoRo) Shipping
  • Lift On/Lift Off (LoLo) Shipping
  • Flat Rack Shipping
  • Container Shipping

The roll on/roll off, lift on/lift off, and flat rack shipping methods are all very safe open air shipping methods. As in line with our state’s requirements, we add on free insurance coverage to each of our customers’ shipping service packages. If our coverage doesn’t protect the full value of your heavy equipment or oversized cargo, we do offer extra insurance protection plans at additional costs.

Container shipping is our service that provides the most protection since it is an enclosed service. Nevertheless, this is only available to those with heavy equipment that can fit inside a 40ft container. RoRo is the most favored option as well as the least expensive but it is only available to those with equipment or vehicles in working order. LoLo is for broken equipment and vehicles as well as large construction materials since a crane will lift the cargo onto the vessel. Flat rack is an open air service that secures your cargo to a metal frame before it is transported aboard a ship.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
