How to Ship Heavy Machinery From USA to Spain

Planning to ship heavy machinery such as construction vehicles from the USA to Spain? You likely have many questions, all of which we would be happy to answer here at Ship Overseas. We make the process smooth, affordable and easy, as we frequently work with construction companies, manufacturers, and private agencies just like you.

For an additional fee, we provide professional dismantling services so your equipment can fit more easily into the containers. When you ship disassembled machinery, it’s possible to save the import duty fees, as your shipment would be considered shipping parts as opposed to fully assembled machinery.

To obtain a free custom quote now on your heavy machinery, construction equipment or farming equipment overseas, please provide us with the Year/Make/Model, Pickup Zip Code or Departure Port, and Destination Country, in this case, Spain. Ship Overseas offers weekly sailings from seven ports in the USA to two ports in Spain.

  • Barcelona, the capital and largest city of Catalonia, is the second most populous municipality in the country. It also happens to be Catalonia’s largest port, along with Tarragona.
  • Vigo, the most populous municipality in Galicia, sits on the northwest coast. It is the country’s busiest fishing port and houses the world’s largest fishing company, Pescanova.

At one of these two ports, your designated pick-up person will take possession of the equipment and pay cash for Tax or Duty.

How Much Does it Cost to Ship Heavy Machinery to Spain?

You will have to call us for specific prices on shipping heavy machinery to Spain, as this large equipment varies greatly by type and weight. It also doesn’t come in standard sizes like cars do (i.e., compact, mid-sized, full-sized, small SUV, large SUV). Keep in mind, the West Coast is generally more expensive to ship from vs. the East Coast.

Estimated Transit Time

It takes five weeks to ship RoRo from the East Coast and six to seven weeks to ship RoRo from the West Coast.

Shipping Method for Shipping Heavy Machinery to Spain

Our shipping vessels depart on a weekly basis from all seven U.S. seaports listed above to the two ports in Spain. Our one and only shipping method to Spain for heavy machinery is the RoRo method.

RoRo Shipping (Roll On/Roll Off)

We use this method for shipping construction vehicles, boats, motorcycles, motorhomes, campers, trailers, and buses, a popular option thanks to its cost effectiveness and efficiency. It has reliable departure and arrival dates (think: airport) and looks an awful lot like a parking garage inside the ship.

Do You Need Marine Insurance?

You don’t have to get it but we highly recommend insuring your heavy machinery for the trip.

1.75% of the value of the machinery for FULL coverage, theft, vandalism, total loss, damage with $500 deductible. Coverage begins when your machinery is loaded onto the ship until the time it’s signed for at collection. Total Loss for 1.25% charge for the value of the machinery. You can opt to cover your machinery for 50% or $75% of the equipment’s value rather than 100% if you want. But when you fail to purchase insurance, you are responsible for paying out of pocket for any damages.

Leave the arrangement of heavy machinery shipments to Spain up to us. Here at Ship Overseas, we bring nearly 40 years of experience to provide the most hassle-free results. We welcome you to call us toll free at 888-805-4994 or 858-547-0840.
