Transport a Car to the Caribbean

You should use a professional international auto transport service to handle exporting your car to the Caribbean. Using a car shipping company that has experience with overseas transport and is up-to-date on changes to foreign import rules is essential. Besides from having valid local, state, and federal licences and certificates, they should also have an A+ rating with the BBB.

The Caribbean’s import policies are a little less strict than most other nations. Nevertheless, you must abide by the standards and restrictions set by the country if you wish to have your car imported from the U.S. As a shipping customer, you’ll need to provide the Customs office with the proof demanded by the Caribbean government. Some of the proof needed includes the proof of paid taxes. Some of the taxes you can expect to pay include a 15-20% tax as well as smaller taxes such as the GCT (General Consumption Tax).

Preparing for Your Car’s Transport to the Caribbean

Since the Caribbean is surrounded by vast ocean waters, there are many seaports for your car to be sent to. Not all seaports except open air shipping methods but a longstanding transporter will be aware of this. Getting a vehicle permitted into the country is relatively easier than most other countries. However, there is still a great deal of work that must be accomplished before the vehicle makes its way to the islands.

Move Car The Caribbean
  • Start gathering proof required by Customs
  • Make sure the vehicle type is allowed into the country
  • Get all recommended inspections done
  • Pay all of the tariffs and duties
  • Prep the vehicle according to the auto transport company
  • Find rides to the ports or terminals where your car must be dropped off or picked up at

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
