FAQ FOR OVERSEAS SHIPPING
In this helpful FAQ section we’ll explore some of the basics regarding overseas auto shipping, what you can expect when you ship your vehicle overseas and what you may need when it comes time to move your vehicle.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK MY SHIPMENT?
Typically when you want to transport your vehicle overseas you should give us anywhere from one to seven days to find a carrier and get your shipment started. Once your vehicle is picked up it can take anywhere from 2-3 weeks, on average, to transport your vehicle overseas.
HOW MUCH DOES OVERSEAS AUTO TRANSPORT COST?
The cost to transport your vehicle depends very much on where exactly you are shipping to and from. Prices to and from Alaska and Hawaii are usually consistent for the overseas portion; however, any overland transportation services will add more to the price of your shipment.

HOW WILL THEY SHIP MY VEHICLE OVERSEAS?
When your vehicle is shipped overseas it is loaded onto a large roll-on/roll-off cargo ship that will transport it from one port to another. This is generally the fastest, safest and cheapest way to move your vehicle overseas.
CAN I TRANSPORT MY VEHICLE TO ANOTHER COUNTRY?
While there are companies that provide international auto transport, we do not. We can transport your vehicle to all 50 states, including Alaska and Hawaii, but we cannot move vehicles to other countries.
CAN I TRANSPORT PERSONAL BELONGINGS WITH MY CAR?
No. Any vehicles going overseas cannot have anything in them that is not a part of the vehicle (spare tires are okay; spare boxes are not). This is because to transport to Alaska and Hawaii cargo ships must pass through international waters, where different rules govern the open seas.

HOW AUTO SHIPPING WORKS
REQUEST A QUOTE
First, we post your vehicle through our network, including all National Dispatch Boards for Auto Transport. This is where all licensed auto transport carriers can see your vehicle is available for shipping.
BOOK YOUR ORDER
We present offers from FMCSA Licensed and Insured Carriers. When you accept an offer, we send your service agreement that guarantees the price, door-to-door service and 100% bumper to bumper insurance. There are never any hidden fees or charges, guaranteed.
VEHICLE IS PICKED UP
Not until you approve your carrier and final logistics is your deposit due. Your deposit is included in your quote and goes toward the total price. The remaining balance is due at time of delivery. Nothing gets done without your approval.
VEHICLE IS DELIVERED
Your driver will contact you prior to your pickup and delivery dates to schedule a time for loading and unloading. Once your vehicle reaches its destination, you do a final inspection of your vehicle and pay the driver the remaining balance. You and the driver both sign the Bill of Lading and each keep a copy.
