Depending on the country you are heading to, this process can last for days and even weeks, and until you get a new vehicle, you will have to figure out other means of transportation.

What Requirements Your Vehicle Must Meet Before International Shipping

One of the benefits of car shipping overseas is that you will not have to sell it. Still, your car will have to be your property – it can not be leased or financed. Also, you’ll need proof of origin and a copy of your passport. Besides that, you can use our overseas shipping services with ease. These requirements are necessary because of the customs but don’t worry. Once you contact our international moving company, a designated agent who will be in charge of your move will walk you through all the steps and requirements you need to meet.

How Cars Are Shipped Overseas

The team of experienced I Love Moving international movers will make sure that the entire process goes smoothly and without hassle. We know that people are often concerned to let their precious four-wheeler embark on such a journey, which is why we decided to unveil the process and keep it all transparent. In case you have additional questions and need more information, feel free to contact us.

What Requirements a Vehicle Needs to Fulfill Before Loading

There are some conditions you and your vehicle need to fulfill to be eligible for overseas car shipping. The most important thing for car shipping from the US is to have the original title of ownership, not liaised or financed. Besides that, you’ll need a certificate of origin if the car was bought brand new and a copy of your passport. Another essential piece of information is that there shouldn’t be more than ¼ of fuel in your tank. For further questions about customs regulations, formalities, and documentation, do not hesitate to contact us. We will gladly answer them all.

I Love Moving Has a Couple of Overseas Car Shipping Methods

When it comes to international moving and auto transporting with I Love Moving, you can choose various options depending on your needs and budget. There is everything for everyone’s taste. In essence, there are two ways you can transport your car, in a container or directly on the ship. But we came up with a couple of more methods you can choose so your moving abroad can be much easier and with an affordable cost:

  • Consolidated freight – With this method, you will share a 40ft container with four more cars, so this can be your best choice if you have more than one auto. But you will have a longer waiting period until the container is full.
  • Full container load – Clients with luxurious cars prefer this method since it gives them their own 20ft container for one car.
  • Car + household goods – If you are relocating your entire family and most of your household goods, this method is excellent for both saving money and having all your belongings at the new location at the same time. You will get a 40ft container to place your belongings and vehicle.
  • Roll-on/Roll-off – The most commonly used method, RORO, means cars will be put on a ship’s deck. The quote is most affordable for this method, but your car will be exposed to outside factors such as weather.

You Can Transport Belongings With Your Vehicle

With our overseas shipping company, you can place items in a car before you ship it. Most companies forbid this, but we are fine as long as you have a detailed inventory list of things you wish to ship. Also, you can only place items in the back seat or a trunk, and of course, this service will be extra charged. For more information about this service, don’t hesitate to give us a call.

The Cost of Car Shipping Overseas Is Affordable

You probably think that moving overseas will cost you a lot of money and that auto transporting will be even more expensive. But the shipping overseas is way more affordable than a couple of years or a decade ago. More and more people are using this option, and the number of cargo and commercial boats is increasing every year. The cost of a vehicle’s transport service can go between $1,000 to $5,000 depending on the distance and the method you are using. Either way, a car ship is a lot more budget-friendly than buying a brand new car.

How We Form the Price?

The total cost depends on several factors, and you can rest assured that we will always give you a total price without any hidden fees. Here are some of the criteria based on which we form the price:

  • Type, size, and dimensions of the machine
  • Location of the port
  • Location of the pickup
  • Destination port requirements
  • Type of transportation

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Prepare Your Car For Overseas Transport?

Your automobile is about to embark on what could be a weeks-long journey, so proper maintenance and a few check-ups are something you shouldn’t skip. For example, it is always better to get your car inspected and repaired at your local mechanic, than to wander trying to find a new one in another country. Therefore, we always offer our clients a few tips for preparing their machine for this journey:

  • Remove all personal belongings, such as important documents and valuables,
  • Visit an authorized service to make sure everything is okay,
  • Wash the exterior and clean it on the inside,
  • Measure the pressure in tires,
  • Make sure you have a copy of your keys,
  • No more than ¼ of the tank should be full,
  • Secure any loose parts,
  • Disconnect the alarm or anti-theft system,
  • Take pictures of the exterior and any existing damage.

Do you offer insurance?

Yes, as long as your four-wheeler is with us, it is insured. However, we always advise our clients to get additional full coverage insurance or total loss insurance, just in case.

How Long Does it Take to Ship A Vehicle Overseas? 

Overseas vehicle transport takes some time, which is why we always recommend our clients to book their shipping as soon as possible if they have figured out the date of their relocation. The duration mainly depends on the distance and the means of transportation. The fastest option is international relocation by air; however, at the same time, that is the most expensive option. Sea transport is more affordable, but it can last for weeks, depending on the distance and other terms.

Do you offer door-to-door services?

Yes, we do offer exclusive door-to-door services in most countries. Feel free to contact us for more information about it.

From which ports you ship?

NJ and LA are our major ports where clients can drive their auto and hand it over, but we also offer transportation from all other ports in the US.

Can someone else pick up the vehicle instead of me?

Only a consigned agent can do this.

Can I ship an automobile that is not operable?

Yes, we transport inoperable vehicles as well, just make sure you notify us about that in advance.

Can I ship a motorcycle?

Yes, we do offer the transportation of motorcycles, mopeds, and ATVs.

How long in advance should I book my transportation?

As soon as possible, but at least two weeks in advance would be ideal.

Do I need to drive to the port, or can someone come and pick up my car?

You can drive your car to the port and save some money by doing so, but we can also send a shuttle truck to your door to pick it up.

Is my car safe on the boat?

Whether it is on the deck or in one of the containers, we take all precautionary measures and follow all guidelines to make sure the car is safe. We use straps and clamps to immobilize the car, so it does not move and get damaged. When the car is shipped along with household goods, they are separated, so there’s no danger of incidents and damage such as dents, scratches, things tossing over, etc.
