People who decide to change their address and move to some country abroad, usually want to ship as many belongings as possible. And if they own a vehicle, they opt for our overseas vehicle shipping. If this is your first international move, you surely want as many information as possible. Keep reading and find out some of the most important things when it comes to shipping your vehicle.
How much will it cost you?
The price of the overseas vehicle shipping will be based on several things. One of the most important factors that will determine the rate of the shipping is the type of your vehicle. Shipping sport utility vehicles is usually more expensive than shipping compact cars and motorcycles. Secondly, the distance between the two points is also crucial. Tell us your current address in the States and the address of the city you are going to move to. If the trip is long, your vehicle will have to go through several ports and customs. That’s why it is advisable to schedule your moving date on time, too.
How to prepare your vehicle for overseas vehicle shipping?
My International Movers will handle the entire process, but there are some things you should do before we begin with shipping. If you prepare your vehicle properly, you will avoid possible problems. Firstly, you should remove all your personal things from your car. It is also advisable to check whether your car has any scratches or other damages. If so, take pictures in order to compare your vehicle after we delivered it. Be sure your car is completely empty. Do not put your luggage inside your vehicle because that can cause damage.
What about the gasoline in the vehicle?
Before our moving team comes to your house to ship your car, check your tank. It is recommended to leave about one-quarter of gasoline in your vehicle.
Dealing with customs
Choosing our car moving service instead of dealing with the process on your own is certainly more convenient. Whether you are familiar with the procedure or not, you surely want to avoid dealing with customs. Once you hire our moving team, you can relax and be stress-free because handling the customs will be our job.
