It is difficult to ship a car from the US to another country. You will need to track the vehicle and complete paperwork. The task is best left to car shipping companies that have years of experience in this field.
Check that the transporter has been registered with DOT
The Department of Transport must register auto transport companies that offer shipping services within the USA and abroad. Ask the shipping company for their DOT number. If interstate transportation is required, the provider must possess a Motor Carrier number. Visit the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s website to verify this number.
Get ready to drive
Auto transport companies don’t cover any damage to the vehicle’s interior. This is why it is important to get rid of all hanging and loose items like CDs, extra change and removable electronics. To document any damage, wash the vehicle well and take photos. Keep an extra set of keys and empty the gas tank.
You should ensure that the overseas shipping provider is FMC registered if you ship to this destination.
Check with Federal Maritime Commission if you plan to ship your car internationally. Also, ensure that the company has a bond or shipping license.
All details should be written
Don’t believe everything that the provider claims. Get car shipping quotes in writing to avoid any confusion or losses. Double-check the quote to ensure there aren’t hidden fees. Important information such as destination and origin, insurance details and rendered services including fumigation loading crating and custom clearance must be included in the quote. Once you have chosen a provider, prepare a contract on the letterhead of the transporter and get it signed.
Request a bill
The transporter issues a bill of lading, which is a condition report. The provider acknowledges receipt of the shipment by issuing a bill of lading. The bill of lading should contain the name and signature of the carrier, the terms and conditions of contract, the name of the consignee, the detailed description of goods and any special instructions. BoL is legally binding and will be required to file any claims for damages.
