    Moving a car to another country can sound like it will be daunting, but there are some ways that you can get this process done. You will find that island locations like Puerto Rico do add some challenges to the process of moving your vehicle to your new home. You will need to consider all of the logistics that are involved before you decide that you are going to send your car to Puerto Rico.

    If you are ready to learn more about the process of moving your car to Puerto Rico, read on!

    How to Move Your Car to Puerto Rico

    You will first need to be aware that you will likely have to consent to have your car shipped via your vehicle transport company of choice to a location that has a port that can pick up cars that are leaving for Puerto Rico. This means that you will need to potentially reserve a two-part trip for your car. Some companies will handle both parts of the moving process for you but you will need to ask if they can take care of the arrangements for the ship portion of the trip or not.

    You will need to be sure that you work with the company that you are planning to use for the move to make sure that they are going to pick up your car at a time that works for you and soon enough that your car will not miss the ship that will take if the rest of the way to Puerto Rico. You should make sure that all of the details of the shipping process will be agreed upon in advance to eliminate confusion in the long run.

    The ships that will take your car to Puerto Rico will store it in a shipping container and then sail with it to the port that they are allowed to dock in. There are a few ports that accept these cars and this might be the location that you will pick up your vehicle. You will want to ask if the shipping company moves the cars to a new location to be held for pick up, or if they are going to expect you to be there the day the vehicle arrives to drive it away.

    What Does it Cost to Move a Vehicle to Puerto Rico?

    You might be worried about the cost of the process to move your car to Puerto Rico. You will want to inquire about which part of the cost is associated with the overland part of the transport. There is little flexibility in the cost of the ship portion of the trip and you cannot reduce the costs of the fees and duties that you will have to pay when your car is released to you in Puerto Rico. You can, however, look around for the best deal for the overland part of the trip.

    The typical cost for this kind of shipping process is anywhere from $1,200-$4,000. The distance that you need to ship your vehicle overland can have a big impact on the cost of the entire trip. You will find that there are not many companies that can handle the entirety of the arrangement process, so you might have to pay more for companies that are willing to take care of both the overland trip and the shipping container process.

    It can be helpful to look around and do your research about the best process by which you can move your vehicle to Puerto Rico. Jumping at the first contract that you are offered might lead to regret if you find out that there was a better company to work with for your needs. You need to be sure that your car will be safe during the entire process and you might want to try and control some of the cost of the trip.

    Always make sure that you verify that the company that is shipping your car for you has insurance for both parts of the trip. While it is not common for accidents to happen during the overland part of the trip and it is not likely that something will happen to your car while it is on the ship, accidents do take place. Failing to verify that there is protection for damage or losses to your car while it is in transit is essential to contracting with any shipping company.

    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.


    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.


    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.


    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.
