Having a car shipped overseas is not only complicated and takes more work than simply having it shipped from one state to another. It can also be quite costly. This shouldn’t keep you from doing it though if you’ve found a good car. Just make sure to do your research and know the terminology, as well as the process.

Most of time when you ship a car overseas, you are charged port and clearance charges. These are charges in addition to the price of shipping the car. These are charges from the destination country and if you use a shipping container, this will add to your bill.

You might also have to pay import duties and taxes on your imported car. These rules differ by country. Make sure to check with the applicable embassy so that you understand any additional charges and rules that apply to shipping a car overseas. You can also look this information up online. However, it’s wise to verify that your findings are correct.
