List of the Most Popular Countries We Ship Cars To:
Cost to Ship Car Overseas
While there are too many factors to list here regarding pricing, here are some general things to consider when shipping cars internationally.
- Trucking costs – We will pick up your car from your front door and bring it to the nearest port. This is an optional cost and you’ll see it in your quote. While trucking cost are for door-to-port shipping, we also do port-to-port shipping, which doesn’t have any trucking costs.
- Size of Your Vehicle – Most sedans and regular SUVs have similar shipping costs. When you start getting into large SUVs, like Chevy Suburbans, these normally have higher costs.
- Distance from USA – Shipping costs to Europe are typically cheaper than shipping costs to the Middle East.
Starting cost to ship cars overseas starts at around $790 and above.
Vehicle Import Tax & Duty & Destination Handling Charge
Every country has its own import tax and offloading fees. Unless you are in the US Military or moving back to the country you were born in, you will pay import tax.
Normally once your car arrives at the destination port, you’ll have about 5-7 days to pick up your car. You can designate someone (known as the Consignee) to pick up your car for you. Make sure that person has extra cash on hand to pay for the import duty and offloading fees. Your customs broker will let you know exactly how much to bring.
Marine insurance is an optional cost. This insurance covers damage to your vehicle while the ship is out to sea. The cost is 1.75% of the value you wish to insure the car for. Hurricane season starts June 1 and ends on November 30. You can learn more about Marine Insurance here.
Military Car Shipping
We are proud to be an authorized car shipper for the US Military and their dependents. If you are going through a PCS (Permanent Change of Station), you normally don’t need to pay import/duty taxes for your car.
While most of our shipments depart the USA, we can also ship cars back to USA for returning active military families. Major military bases we ship to are in Germany, Spain, Italy, UK, UAE, Iraq, & Bahrain. We also ship to smaller US military bases. Germany is where we ship the most when it comes to the military shipping cars overseas.
Typical Documents Required to Ship Car Overseas
International car shipping can be tricky if you try to do it yourself. Different countries require different documents. For instance, some countries require the Original Title of the car while other countries require a Copy of the Original Title. We will let you know which docs you’ll need. Other docs that may be needed are the Bill of Lading, Bill of Sale, and your ID. For sure, you will need the Title of the car.
Vehicle Shipping Methods
RoRo Car Shipping (Roll-On Roll-Off)
These ships are made specifically for vehicles. RoRo ships are built so anything with tires can Roll On and Off the ship. Automobiles and motorcycles are the most common vehicles. Other types of vehicles that can be shipped are motorhomes, campers, trailers, buses, construction vehicles, and boats. RoRo shipping is normally used when you only ship one vehicle. The car MUST be able to make it up and down the ramp without any assistance. The inside of a RoRo ship looks like a big parking garage. Once loaded on the RoRo vessel, each vehicle is tied down securely in its designated spot (as shown in the picture)
This shipping method has proved highly efficient and extremely cost-effective. When compared to container shipping, it has an additional advantage: it provides reliable departure and arrival dates. The ship’s departure and arrival schedule run almost like an airline flight schedule.
Also, RoRo shipping is the preferred shipping method for new car manufacturers to ship their own vehicles. All vehicles are tied to the deck and are not exposed to the ocean. That way, the vehicles have all the protection against external elements.

Preparing Your Car For Shipment
Who Can Pick Up Your Car
