Preparing your vehicle for shipping.
Before you ship your vehicle, there is a lot to do, starting from checking the eligibility of the vehicle to notifying the U.S customs and filing paperwork. Some of the important documents are:
- Vehicle bill of purchase.
- Registration certificate and title deed.
- Proof of ownership- submit copies of passport/driving license.
- Insurance certification.
- Emissions and roadworthiness certificate.
- Work permit or visa.
It will be a help if you browse the details relating to vehicle import at the Kazakhstan Customs. It is good to check the eligibility for tax exemptions and other restrictions that maybe there on imported vehicles. It is essential to check the vehicle’s eligibility by checking the Title 19 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations.
It is important to remove all of the loose accessories from within the car and A1 Auto Transport service advices about getting the whole car cleaned completely before you ship it to avoid any quarantine delays. You are required by law to remove the air conditioning gas so that any mishap can be prevented. This is important when you are shipping through Roll-on/Roll-Off method. Additionally, whether you ship by container shipping or by RORO, it is important to consider your budget and the type of vehicle, before you ship. It makes more sense to ship an expensive vehicle or a vintage car by container shipping as it offers an extra layer of protection. You are allowed to keep your household items and personal belongings within the container. The difference lies in the fact that in RORO you are only allowed to ship an empty vehicle while in container shipping, extra protection is available.

If modifications are needed, you have to get them done so that custom clearances are provided.
