How to Ship Cars Overseas from Texas

Auto transport companies relocate cars and other motorized vehicles all over the world on a daily basis. Every country sets its own import laws regarding the vehicles that they allow into their borders. Some allow used vehicles to enter and some don’t. Some have regulations as to how old the car can be when it is imported into the country. When you want to ship a car from Texas to another nation, you must make sure you remain in compliance with all the laws set by the other country.

When you must ship a car over the ocean from Texas to another nation, make sure you hire a reputable international transporter familiar with the country’s foreign import policies. However, it is highly recommended that all shipping customers call the embassy of the nation to learn of the current auto import policies, as well as the tax and duty rates. After receiving the information, start collecting the documentation needed for Customs. Customs will grant the vehicle import approval if all the right proof is presented.

Least Expensive Transport Method for Overseas Auto Deliveries out of Texas

Even with its inability to completely protect a vehicle from outside elements such as inclement weather and criminal activity, it is known as an efficient and safe form of shipping. Actually, many manufacturers and dealerships use this method when they must ship multiple vehicles to a location. Just make sure that there is an adequate amount of insurance coverage provided to you to help protect the value of your car.

Open air shipping services are highly desired by frequent transport customers especially dealerships and vehicle manufacturers. RO/RO is the least expensive way to ship a car to another country regardless of which one. The car isn’t permitted to carry personal or valuable items. The shipping company will not be responsible for damages, or any lost or stolen items so make sure you empty the car completely before it leaves Texas. Another thing to know about is that not all countries accept this form of transport at their seaports. Your transport company should know what ports nearest to that nation will accept your vehicle with this form of transport.

Preparing your car for its trip with the transport company will greatly reduce any risks involved with an international transport. Take pictures of your car’s interior and exterior condition as proof before it released to the transporter. The best way to make sure your car is ready for overseas shipping is to have it inspected and serviced at the auto shop before the ship date. Cleaning the inside and outside and checking all fluids is also essential.
