Cost of Shipping Car to Trinidad
The cost of shipping a vehicle can range between $2,200 and be as much as $4,600 if shipping from the United States. The premium services offered by a transport service shipping agent will play a role in how much you will pay total. You could pay an additional $1,000 more or less, depending on what you choose.
Since there is no coast line around Bolivia, your vehicle cannot be directly shipped in and will go to either port Arica or Iquique in Chile. This is on the western part of Bolivia. When you work with A1 Auto Transport service, we know the best route to take to get into Bolivia. You will still need to arrange for a departure from the United States by finding a port that goes to Bolivia. Whether you live in the north, south, east, or west of the U.S., ports you choose should be designated to go to Chile. You can choose to drive the vehicle to the export port yourself or you can hire A1 Auto Transport service to do it for you. Speak to your agent to determine which way would work best for you.
Shipping methods offered to you will consist of Roll On/ Roll Off or container shipping. While the container offer security to your vehicle, Roll On/ Roll Off is more cost effective. When you choose the Roll On/ Roll Off method, your vehicle is driven onto the deck of the ship using its own power and gas. It is secured on the deck of the ship where it rides the waves to the nearest port to Bolivia. If you want to ship your vehicle that way, you will need to clean the vehicle both inside and out, leave only the tire jack, a spare tire, and the floor mats inside, and only have one-fourth tank of gas in the tank for moving it on and off the ship.
You will need to ensure that you have the proper documentation to use this method of shipping which includes the purchase invoice, a technical report stating all that is wrong with the vehicle if anything, proof of insurance including your policy information and number, certificate of origin, registration of your vehicle, and the description of your vehicle.
You will also be required to provide proof of ownership of your vehicle and this can be done with the bill of sale as long as it has your name on it. The title of the vehicle must be clear and there cannot be any lends on it. If there is a lien on the vehicle, your lienholder will need to authorize the export. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency will need to see the proof of registration and your driver’s license before your vehicle will be allowed to board the ship. If there are any delays, your vehicle will not be allowed to board. The import duty will need to clear customs before it can be shipped. You can find out more about the rules and regulations by contacting the Bolivian Embassy in the United States.
