Whenever you are in the midst of relocating to another country, you should consider sending your vehicle overseas too. Being able to hop in the driver’s seat of your own vehicle and traveling the country at your own leisure will provide you with comfort.
Shipping services are actually quite affordable. It’s worth looking into the international transport companies near you in the U.S. They will carefully ship your car to Liberia at a price you can afford.
Hiring professionals to handle the transport to Liberia is the only secure way to do so. There is a lot involved with the shipping process and you must have all the proper equipment including a freight ship. Transport specialists are also familiar with the vehicle import laws for other countries. This is perhaps one of the most difficult parts to understand for shipping customers.
Learn about the Shipping Process.
It is always a good thing to understand the process of auto shipping. You will have the assistance of professionals to guide you along the way, but the extra knowledge only assures a smooth delivery.
Common Documents Required.
- License and Passport.
- Title and Registration.
- Proof of Insurance.
- Proof of Paid Duties and Taxes.
- Inspection Clearance.
- Bill of Lading.
- Shipping Invoices.
The documentation listed is usually requested by the Customs office. It is always best to be prepared early. Contact the Embassy of Liberia to make sure you have accurate information in regards to the import laws and tax rates. The laws change more often than not, but it is important to comply with them if the car is to enter Liberia.
After Customs receives all the documents needed to approve the vehicle’s import, it’s time to prepare the car. The vehicle must be prepared as according to the international transport company before it can begin making its way towards new lands. This makes the shipping process safer for the vehicle and the shipping professionals.
