We are an International Car Shipping Company specializing in shipping cars from USA to all Latin America. For over 25 years we have successfully shipped 1000's of cars to Central America. Costa Rica & Guatemala seem to be the chosen destinations to commute to surrounding areas. Hundreds of people in the United States ship cars to their loved ones and have the cars sent to Costa Rica or Guatemala. From there they drive the car back to their respective country.
Many of our previous customers ship cars once and that's it. Other customers make a business out of it and ship multiple cars at once or they frequently ship cars every month.
Here is a classic example:
People wanting to ship vehicles to Honduras are not allowed to ship vehicles older than 10 years. Trucks have a maximum age of 13 years . You will not be allowed permanent entry into Honduras even if you drive from a neighboring country like Guatemala.
Guatemala has no restrictions of age for cars (this can change so checking with the Guatemala Embassy at the time will clarify the situation) and many people use this port as a destination and then drive to their respective countries. If your final destination is a country other than Guatemala, you will not be charged customs taxes, only an off loading destination charge. Customs Taxes are only payable in the country of final destination.
- A Title of Ownership free and clear of any liens.
- Bill of Sale is required to be presented along with the Title in many Latin American countries.
- Taxes are payable when the car is delivered.
- Taxes for individuals bringing in vehicles have to be checked with their local import offices as they have been known to change often.
- Normally it doesn't matter how old your car is. You can ship a new or used car.
Please note: If you don't have a car yet, but are looking to buy one over the internet, consider our Vehicle Purchase Assistance Program. Ship Overseas will take the "scary" out of buying cars over the internet.
