The Central American country of Honduras is a popular scuba diving destination known for its stunning beaches and dense reef barrier. It’s no wonder so many spend months at a time in the country.
Some people even choose to move to Honduras from their native country due to its overwhelming natural beauty. Luckily, it isn’t hard to find international transporters to help you move your belongings.
There is something involved with overseas relocation that a lot of individuals forget to take into consideration. In most cases, it is wise to have your own car shipped over. Fortunately, hiring professionals to transport your vehicle is simple and the costs of shipping services are inexpensive. To make sure the car ships to Honduras safely, there are some steps to follow.
- Find an international car shipping company to book the transport to Honduras through. They should have a reputation that reflects their professionalism and success in the industry. Their shipping services should also suit your budget and situation.
- Call the Embassy of Honduras to become educated on the latest import laws for foreign vehicles entering the country. You can also ask for the current tax and duty rates for auto import. The transport company will have their professionals helping you gather the obligatory proof to get import approval through Customs.
- After import approval is granted, it’s time to focus on the car. You want the vehicle to ship out in its best condition. Wash the exterior and clean out the inside well. Make sure the car is prepared exactly as demanded by the transport company. It only assures the safety of the car and the shipping professionals delivering it.
- As the car is amidst its travels to Honduras, you should use the time to confirm any of your relocation arrangements. This may include a ride to get your car after it is delivered safely to the country. Seaports will not store or hold anyone’s automobile for them.
