Tips to ship cars overseas

Shipping cars overseas is quite a difficult affair, owing to the multiple contingency values. However, with the right homework and knowledge, you can get your car shipped to your destination with little to no problems. Here are a few tips to help you to get your car shipped-

  • Choose a reliable international shipping car: Make sure that the shipping company you hire is registered with the authoritative bodies. This is important to ensure that the company is well equipped with the necessary papers and permissions to ship heavy vehicles overseas.
  • Check for shipping insurance: Most shipping companies provide shipping insurance, which protects your vehicle in case of damage, etc during transit. However, it is your responsibility to check for the insurance, and ensure that it covers your shipping conditions.
  • Drop and pick up: Make sure that you reach your destination before the shipping does, thus enabling you to check to car for any damages. Some companies have designated pick up and drop off locations. Make sure to enquire beforehand.
  • Prepare for additional cost and time delays: Shipping overseas can lead to unexpected costs cropping up due to taxes and shipping fares. Be prepared to pay a little extra when the shipment arrives. Also, the delivery might be delayed quite a bit, depending on the size of the container.
