Hello and thank you for visiting!

Moving internationally can definitely be a complicated process, especially when it comes to relocating vehicles. First, you should familiarize yourself with the type of services offered by overseas auto shipping companies to figure out what's right for you (and your budget).

Services offered:

  • Roll-on and roll-off service: This is a process where the vehicle is directly driven or rolled on to the ship and it is protected by a deck. It is usually the most cost-effective process.
  • Container service: This method is the safest way to ship your car. Your auto is placed in a separate container, and it is rolled on to the ship; however, this tends to be more costly than a roll-on/roll-off service.

Cost considerations: The average cost of shipping your vehicle overseas can be estimated based on the size of the car, its operating condition, insurance rates and the distance between the source and the shipping destination (and whether you've chosen roll-on/roll-off or container service). You should ask about the price in detail - don't be afraid to ask as many questions as necessary. Customs clearance fees should be included in the quote as well. If you are unsure, you should contact the consulate of your destination country to determine any taxes or duties on your vehicle. Prices can vary considerably, and could range anywhere from $800 to $4,000 to ship.
