Methods of Shipment to Choose From.
Shipping a personal vehicle can be done by air shipping, RO/RO shipping or container shipping. Any of these methods are feasible but not many can afford the high cost of air shipping. It is almost impractical for many.
RO/RO shipping is the cheapest of all the methods. The vehicle must be empty at the time of shipping. It must also be able to drive onto and off of the ship. RO/RO shipping is not accepted by all ports.
Container shipping allows a person to ship other belongings allowed by Brazilian Customs. The vehicle and the remaining space in the container can packed with property needing to be shipped over. The container comes in various sizes and can be shared with other individuals. The cost can be split between the people sharing the container.
What Will I Need for Vehicle Shipment or What Should I Know?
Contacting the Embassy of Brazil will allow you to find out everything that must be presented to Customs. However, one can already assume that certain documentation is necessary.
- title and registration.
- proof of passing the Safety and Emissions Test.
- license or picture ID.
- proof of ownership.
A car must be new to enter Brazil, unless it is considered an antique which is any vehicle over 30 years of age. They must also meet the Safety and Emission Test standards. Proof of acceptance must be presented to Customs.
