We recommend Shipoverseas for their top-notch international shipping services. They transported our Mazda 6 from California to Galveston, Texas, and onward to Derince, Turkey. The entire process was smooth, with the car arriving in perfect condition within few months. Jack, Gary, and Miron our contacts at the company, provided prompt communication and timely updates throughout. Their accessibility in addressing any concerns were valuable. With this positive experience, we plan to be regular customers!

We shipped our vehicle from Hawaii to Belgium. We contacted several companies online. Miron from Ship Overseas was the first to get back to us. This was our first time shipping a vehicle internationally and we had no idea what the entire process was going to be like. Some of the reviews we read said the company wasn't very responsive or communicative. We had quite the opposite experience. Miron communicated with us every step of the way. Communication was extremely important to us as this was quite a complicated process. Miron answered all our questions and provided all necessary details of the process. He was also very upfront with the fees and even advised us of what fees to expect here in Belgium. Our car made it to Belgium on schedule without any hassle. Miron's contact here in Belgium was also very thorough. I recommend Miron from Ship Overseas 100%.

Highly recommended. Paul, Miron, and team were very thorough/detail oriented. It was my first time having a car shipped from Europe which I purchased. He made sure I had all the paperwork needed. They also arranged transportation both to and from the ports.

I feel bad as I see a lot of people writing bad comments about this company. I've NEVER had a problem with them. NEVER.(Regarding the negative reviews..)Ship overseas is not an insurance provider, but rather a shipping company -- you must make sure to get insurance when shipping your vehicle so that no damages occur to it. They don't own the ship, nor workers, and of course as a result cannot guarantee the people on the ship won't damage your car.ShipOverseas is my go-to when I have to ship my cars. Which sounds funny to say, but I've actually shipped my car multiple times with them.Jack, one of the agents and owner is always very helpful, and does a great job of putting in trust in clients by making sure you understand the process in detail.I've transported my CLA45 AMG from the US to Belgium, without a problem, and have shipped it back, and am now buying a new car and shipping it back!You could say I'm somewhat of a (very happy) repeat customer – Photos for reference!

We highly recommend Shipoverseas services! Not only are they specialized in shipping gas/diesel motor operated cars but also specialize in shipping EV vehicles as well. We used there International shipping services to ship a 2022 Porsche Taycan to Dubai. The car arrived in less than a month in perfect shape, same as leaving our location. We worked with both Jack and Gary, both were great communicating and providing a timely status update. We will definitely be a regular customer! Thank you Jack and Gary!

That's why we choose Ship Over Seas from the other company quotes we received. Good services , good prices , that's the criteria for our choice we don't regret at all. Thanks again.

Shipped my car from NC to Puerto Rico. They took care of the transport of my car from NC to the port in FL, and then on the ship from FL to PR. The staff was very responsive to all communications I sent, especially while my car was in transit. I always knew exactly where my vehicle was. Very kind and helpful staff, especially when I was just calling to inquire in the beginning. Will use them again if I ever need to ship my car back stateside.

I used Ship Overseas back in 2019 to ship my 2008 Harley Softtail from Galveston Texas to Belgium. I forget exactly how long it took, perhaps in the two month range. However, the bike did eventually arrive and was completely ready for me at pickup. They even handled all the import paperwork etc. My only complaint would be that somehow the bike had accumulated almost 100 extra miles on it from when I dropped in off, and picking it up. Perhaps they needed to run it around the boat a few 1000 times. Also, there were a couple of parts missing from my saddle bags. Lesson: NEVER leave anything that can't be bolted to the object you are shipping. Otherwise, great service and a very good shipping experience.

ShipOverseas was a great partner in shipping a Chevy Bolt EV to Helsinki Finland. The representatives provided easily understood descriptions of the roll on-roll off process, required paperwork, payments, etc. We drove the car onto the Galveston, TX dock with an accompanying guide. It was 100% smoothly accomplished. The car was transferred in Germany without problems (it is an electric vehicle with some unique starting characteristics) and offloaded near Helsinki, Finland. The photo shows incredibly clean conditions at the destination despite weeks at sea. I can highly recommend ShipOverseas for safe, economical, and successful vehicle shipping.

If you never had your car shipped before, I can tell you that it can be a very fearful, and stressful event, but I can vouch 1st hand that this agency took all the thought fear and stress away! We moved my XT-5 from DFW to overseas (Bahrain). We didn't have any issues, and it was relatively fast considering it's been shipped across the seas. I will 100% recommend this company to anyone and everyone. Hassle-free and delivers what was promised. I'll definitely be using them whenever we decide to return stateside!

I shipped two cars from Savannah to Germany. Super easy process and the rates were better than anyone elses that i was getting for the same route. Would recommend them to anyone for their shipping needs. They helped along the way to get the documents needed and explained the process clearly so i knew exactly what needed to be done to have my cars on the boat that I needed them to be on. Pickup on the other side was easy as well with who shipoverseas was partnered with where my vehicles arrived. They were in contact with me often so i knew that the vehicles were on time and when to have everything ready. I will certainly be in touch again when it's time to return from my oversea travels. Thanks for the smooth process!

My car purchase and shipping to the Middle East was full of challenges and complications, however the one thing that was 100% smooth was the part handled by Miron from Ship Overseas. Great service and communication from beginning to end. Highly recommend.
This company and team were tremendously professional & also the least expensive company I found. I researched quite a few before settling on ShipOverseas. I’m glad I chose them, they were able to deliver my vehicle to my destination port in Korea when others said they could only deliver to one port in Korea and for less money. I will definitely use them again and recommend anyone shipping anyone to consult with ShipOverseas.com. Well done!

Hello Tere! Last summer I sent my car to Estonia. I was scared little bit because it was my first time ( maybe even last!) to do this kind of thing. But it went very smoothly - unexpectedly . Most difficult thing was driving myself to the port, but I did it! I could order somebody from Ship Overseas, but it cost money. And paperwork was pretty normal. The same day, I left to the airport, I got phone call that they sent car title to my old address. Wow! I thought that this title goes directly to the Estonian port, but I was wrong. They sent this very important paper over to my son.It arrived on time when I was ready to show car documents to the toll office. Everything ended very well ! Thanks to Ship Overseas. And , by the way, sending my car to Estonia was much, much cheaper than other companies offered. I am thankful !!!

Car Shipping to Europe, Latin America, Africa, Middle East

We proudly ship cars, RVs, boats, and heavy machinery to Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America. Serving most countries, we ensure your vehicle reaches its destination safely and efficiently.

 List of the Most Popular Countries We Ship Cars To:

These are two RoRo Ships. These ships transport our customers’ cars overseas.

Cost To Ship Car Overseas:

While various factors influence pricing, considerations include:

  • Trucking costs – We will retrieve your vehicle from your front door and transport it to the closest port. This is an optional expense that your quote will reflect. We also ship port-to-port, which incurs no trucking fees, even though trucking costs are only for door-to-port shipping.
  • Vehicle size – The shipping costs for most sedans and standard SUVs are comparable. Big SUVs (such as Chevy Suburbans) typically come at a higher price point.
  • Distance from the USA – Typically, shipping expenses to Europe are less expensive than those to the Middle East. 

Our transparent starting cost to ship cars overseas is approximately $790 and above.

Vehicle Import Tax & Duty & Destination Handling Charge

Every country has specific import taxes and offloading fees. Unless you are in the US Military or moving back to your country of birth, import tax applies. We ensure you are informed about all associated charges, promoting a hassle-free experience.

Storage Fees:

Upon arrival at the destination port, you typically have 5-7 days to pick up your car. Designate a consignee to facilitate a smooth process, ensuring they have the necessary funds for import duty and offloading fees.

Marine Insurance:

While optional, marine insurance covers potential vehicle damage during transit. Costing 1.75% of the insured value, it offers peace of mind. Learn more about Marine Insurance here.

Military Car Shipping

As an authorized and proud car shipper for the US Military, we take pride in facilitating smooth PCS (Permanent Change of Station) relocations. Import/duty taxes are often waived for military personnel. 

Whether you’re going through a Permanent Change of Station (PCS) or returning to the USA, we’ve got you covered. Major military bases, including Germany, Spain, Italy, the UK, UAE, Iraq, and Bahrain, trust Ship Overseas for their car shipping needs.

Typical Documents Required to Ship Car Overseas

International car shipping involves specific documentation, varying by country. We guide you through the process, ensuring you have the necessary paperwork, such as the Original Title, Bill of Lading, Bill of Sale, and ID.

Vehicle Shipping Methods

International RoRo Ship (Roll-On Roll-Off)

Specialized vessels, known as International RoRo Vessels, are designed exclusively for the transportation of vehicles. These ships are equipped to facilitate the seamless loading and unloading of anything with tires, such as automobiles, motorcycles, motorhomes, campers, trailers, buses, construction vehicles, and boats. 

The RoRo shipping method is particularly suitable when transporting a single vehicle, provided it can navigate the loading ramp independently. Once on board, the cars are securely tied down in allocated spaces within the International RoRo Ship, resembling a vast parking garage, as depicted in the accompanying image.

Why Is International RoRo Shipping a Viable Option?

This mode of transportation has demonstrated remarkable efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Compared to container shipping, it offers an additional advantage: the assurance of reliable departure and arrival dates. The scheduling of International RoRo Shipping operations closely mirrors that of airline flights.

Moreover, International RoRo Shipping is preferred for new car manufacturers transporting their vehicles. All vehicles are meticulously fastened to the deck, protecting against external elements. This method serves as a shield, preventing exposure to the ocean throughout the journey.

International RoRo Shippers find this shipping approach particularly beneficial, given its ability to safeguard vehicles and adhere to precise departure and arrival timelines.

Additional International Car Shipping Information:

US Customs Clearance

Ship Overseas, Inc. handles US Customs clearance, streamlining the process for your peace of mind.

Preparing Your Car for Shipment

Follow our guidelines for preparing your car for shipment. Take simple precautions, such as;

  • Disable alarms
  • Limit gas to 1/4 tank
  • Check for leaks
  • Check tire pressure
  • Lock your car securely.

Who Can Pick Up Your Car

The consignee, the designated person at the destination port, should match the name on the paperwork and bring extra cash for port/offloading fees.
