  • All worked very well, fast and helpful Response. Great Team to work with Martin Nywlt Mar 12, 2020
  • I had my motorcycle shipped from Florida to Panama. Ricardo, my agent at ShipOverseas, was very communicative and arranged for my bike to be picked up at my home. Once in Panama, Ricardo provided all the documents required to clear the port and customs. Price was below the competitors that I inquired with. Will recommend. Salvador Antonio Arias Mar 11, 2020
  • Very pleased with the service that is all done very professionally. Have shipped 2 trucks and one sleeper with this company and not had any problems at all. Shaun Harman Mar 05, 2020
  • Excellent service. We will love to do more business with you. Thank you Gary!!! Leonard Bus Sales, Inc Feb 26, 2020
  • Thank you for the great service. Ricardo was excellent and kept me up to date with information. The whole process is pretty complicated with several ports and countries and lots of paper work. You might consider a graphic on your website showing all the steps and then color code the responsibility for each one - your team, the client, the receiving port, the departure port, etc. Unfortunately we probably can't get the receiving government to do the same. Customs in Panama was tough. Hopefully everyone will continue to simplify and streamline. Thanks again. Jeff. Whaly Boats USA Feb 24, 2020

  • Great service and communication. Would use you any time. Thank You Maria Mercedez Robles Lopez Feb 10, 2020
  • The booking agent and consolidation agent were very efficient and answered my emailed questions quickly. I chose the shared shipping container method for the motorcycle I was shipping from US to Nigeria. I wish I had read more about container shipping VS RORO. The RORO method will ensure your vehicle goes on an assigned shipping date. When you choose shared container shipping you must wait until the container is full for it to be shipped. My fault, not the company's. I was very pleased with the service! Christi Talbott Feb 10, 2020

  • I found that the communication between myself and Ship Overseas was very good. I got all my questions answered. I had a problem in that I left my Fla. tag on the car because I thought it was a requirement but I checked the fact sheet and it said to take it off. So that's on me because someone took my tag. The other issue was that when the car got to Costa Rica I discovered that the bill of lading was not in Limon but in Escazu which is some 6-8 hours away. The lady at the company that had my bill of lading was rude to my shipping agent and said for us to come pick it up and hung up the phone. We insisted that our agent call her back and indicate we were not going to Escauau to get it. We had to make arrangements to have it couriered. Gregory Samms Dec 12, 2019
Important info to Ship a Car Overseas:
  • No car can leave USA if it has a lien on it. What does this mean? Your car must be paid in full. The only people who can ship a car overseas and still carry a lien on the car are US Military and Government employees/contractors. For those people a letter of authorization from the lender will need to be issued to pass US Customs. Otherwise the car may be considered stolen.
  • A clear Title of Ownership with no Liens on the Title.
  • If you bought a car new, then your name must be listed on the front of the Title as the registered owner.
  • If the vehicle has been sold, then both the Seller and Buyer have to sign the back of the Title in the spaces as detailed on the back of the Title.
  • For safety reasons, the vehicle cannot have more than a ΒΌ tank of gas.
Import Duty for Destination Country:
  • Import duty is NOT collected by Ship Overseas. It must be paid at the arrival port by whoever is picking up the car. We wrote a blog post about vehicle import duty here. It talks about how to find out import duty for your country.
Travel & Living Abroad:
  • Most countries will allow a traveler to temporarily import their car for up to 6 months. After the 6 months is up, import duty will be charged. For many travelers going to Europe and taking their car, a deposit is paid up front. When the car goes back to it's destination country, the deposit is refunded. If a person has lived in USA for 1 or more years, most countries will allow that person to bring their car back duty free! The car must not have any liens on it. Please check with your Customs Department first.
