Shipping a Car to UAE from USA
We are an international car shipping company specializing in shipping cars to UAE from USA. We will need the year, make and model of the vehicle as well as the location of the car in order to give you the cost and other relevant information. In addition, we will email all the information needed to legally ship a vehicle to UAE. The most popular arrival port is Jebel Ali (Dubai). There are various departure ports to ship from in the United States (see below). Also, if the car is close to the departure port, the owner (or designated person) can drive the car there to save money. If the owner is not near one of the departure ports shown below, we can arrange for our transport truck driver to meet with the owner, or the designated person, to bring the car to the shipping dock. In this article we will cover: Shipping Methods and when to use them, Departure Ports, Arrival Ports, Import Duty Tax, and more. Remember, you always have the option to take the car to the departure shipping port or have us take it for you.
Shipping Car to UAE via RoRo
Use this shipping method if only one car is being shipped to UAE. Our RoRo (Roll on Roll off) ship arrives in Jebel Ali. The sailings are usually quicker too. This makes it relatively more affordable for customers to purchase vehicles in most states in the USA and have them trucked at reasonable charges to the ports. The picture to the left is a RoRo ship. The car must run, drive and have brakes to be shipped on this method. No goods are permitted inside of the vehicle except the jack, spare tire and tools. Destination clearing agents are provided to assist in legalizing the vehicle in UAE. When shipping a car to UAE from USA, the departure ports for Roll on Roll off are situated in:
|Departure Ports RoRo - Shipping Car to UAE|
|Galveston, TX||Jacksonville, FL||Baltimore, MD||Port Hueneme, CA|
|Arrival Ports RoRo - Shipping Car to UAE|
|Jebel Ali, UAE|
Shipping Car to UAE via Container
Use the container car shipping method if 3 or 4 cars are being sent or if personal items need to be shipped in addition to the car. This is a great shipping method if someone is moving to UAE and needs to ship household items. The image to the right illustrates one of our container shipping lines exporting cars to UAE. By using this car shipping method, your car would be loaded into a container and lifted onto the container ship with a crane. Shared containers with other cars are available from some ports, but not all. Exclusive container shipments are also available whereby a customer may load more than one vehicle and personal goods in the container. A list of goods shipped in the container with monetary values must be supplied with the titles of ownership in order to ship the container to UAE.
