All About Moving Cars Overseas
We are Moving car overseas experts for your peace of mind. Most Americans travel internationally at least once in their lives. The same can’t be said for their vehicles.
Having shipped thousands of vehicles overseas throughout our nearly three decades in business, we know all the ins and outs of the industry. We’ve cultivated countless connections with international shipping crews, domestic vehicle shippers, and other competitors in the business, ensuring your vehicle gets where it needs to fast.
Many people interested in shipping their cars oversees don’t know anything about the process. For an optimal overseas car shipping experience, we recommend you follow these steps:
Gather any necessary documents
In simple terms, we need proof that you own your vehicle. Coming prepared with documents that prove proof of ownership will prevent shipment delays, ensuring your overseas car shipping experience goes smoothly. Here are several examples of paperwork that proves vehicle ownership:
- Proof of registration from your state government
- Proof of insurance from your insurance company
- The vehicle’s title
- A bill of sale
- Your driver’s license, passport, or other unexpired ID
Give your car a thorough cleaning
While you don’t have to wash your car before shipping it, this step is recommended as a precursor to third step — documenting the condition of your vehicle. Thoroughly cleaning your car helps you spot damage; wear and tear will also show up on camera better.
Document your vehicle’s condition
Give your vehicle a look-around to spot any wear and tear you weren’t already aware of. Everything from minor scratches to missing bumpers and mechanical issues are things you should look out for.
Take pictures of your vehicle’s interior and exterior, particularly areas with damage. This step serves two purposes:
- Filling out a condition report upon picking up your vehicle — this document just proves that you’re satisfied with the post-transport condition of your vehicle.
- In the rare event your vehicle gets damaged during shipment, insurance companies require pre- and post-accident documentation.
Take personal belongings out
Whether you’re just traveling overseas or permanently moving internationally, it’s tempting to stuff your vehicle with personal belongings. After all, airlines charge hefty fees for luggage — why not save money by using your vehicle as a suitcase?
We encourage customers to remove all belongings from their vehicles prior to shipping them, although we do allow you to keep 100 pounds’ worth of items in your car during overseas shipment.
In many cases, however, insurance doesn’t cover damaged or stolen items left in your vehicle during overseas transport. Further, some of our international shipping partners have even been fined for transporting customers’ personal belongings by car.
If you insist on leaving luggage in your car, put it in the trunk. Also be sure to remove toll tags — there’s a chance you get pinned with tolls from other states or countries!
Make sure your vehicle’s in working condition
We require all vehicles to be in good working condition before transporting them. Top off your car’s fluids at least a week before shipment and keep an eye peeled for leaks. Ensure your battery holds a full charge. Air your tires up to the manufacturer’s recommended tire pressure. Also, make sure your vehicle has no more than a quarter-tank of gas.
In rare cases, customers sometimes ship vehicles that don’t work at the time of shipment. We can still ship these vehicles without issue — just make sure you tell us ahead of time.
Also make note of your vehicle’s current mileage.
Remove any aftermarket modifications
Any modifications to the inner workings of your vehicle are fine — leave them as they are. We ask customers to remove things like retractable antennas, luggage racks, bike racks, and custom spoilers before shipment. If you need to take these with you, fit them inside your vehicle or ship them separately.
Keep an extra set of keys
Although nobody will be driving your vehicle once you drop it off, we still need to load it onto trailers for shipment. Our international shipping partners will also need to do this.
Have an extra set of car keys made before sending your car with us. Just like it’s a good idea to have a spare key at home or in your wallet, it’s also good to have an extra set of keys when shipping your vehicle internationally.
Give us your signature
Everything shipped overseas, including cars, come with a bill of lading. This document acts as a receipt or proof of purchase. It’s also a contract with a few pages’ worth of legal mumbo-jumbo that details your agreement with us. The bill of lading includes the address you’ll pick your vehicle up at, your vehicle’s condition, and any mechanical issues you report.
