How Much Does it Cost to Ship a Car Overseas?
The cost to ship your car internationally is based on three main factors:
1) Location of vehicle 2) Size/Dimensions 3) Final destination requirements
As an example, it might cost $1000 to ship a car to Europe in a shared container from the east coast, but shipping a car overseas in its own 20-foot container can cost twice that amount.

Secure Vehicle Transport
Whether it is a car, truck, motorcycle, ATV, or moped, one of the most important stages of international vehicle shipping is securing the vehicle for transit. We can pick up a car from anywhere in the US and transport them to the port warehouse with the best rates for you. Our warehouse crews are professionally trained and have years of experience. Additionally, our team only uses specialized equipment when shipping vehicles. Once it arrives at one of our warehouses, a full and complete dock receipt is issued. We also take pictures of your automobile, which you can view online and use our 24/7 online tracking.
Requirements for Shipping a Car Overseas
Each country or port may require other documents, but the list below is the most common requirement when you transport your car internationally. Your Always Available Auto Transport representative will inform you if you need additional documentation. Exporting your car from the USA should be simple, as you likely have many of these listed items on hand with your vehicle.
When receiving the vehicle we will need to keep your keys with us. The keys are necessary to operate the vehicle and complete the loading. As you receive the vehicle, your keys are given back to you.
Title and Registration
The original title is necessary for shipping a car overseas. It is needed to get your car in and out of the ports. If you would like, you can make copies of your title to hold onto during shipping. The originals will be returned to you once you receive the car at its destination.
Registration is only necessary if a car is being driven to the port, and this is not a requirement to export the vehicle.
Creditor/Lessor notarized statement
If the automobile is currently financed or under a lease, a notarized statement is required stating that the creditor/lessor is aware of the vehicle shipment and they give you permission to export the car. We will also need notarized copies of the title and the letter of release. Not all ports will allow car exports if the car is on a lien.
You (or a designated person) will need identification to pick up the car. If you do not have a US passport, you need an EIN number instead. The EINs protect US citizens’ social security numbers and take approximately 5 min to obtain. IDs are not necessary at the beginning but have to be in before the car ships overseas. For foreign passports, we only need a copy to export the vehicle.
Country-Specific Car Export Requirements
It is important to work with Always Available Auto Transport representatives for country-specific requirements for shipping cars overseas. For some countries, you can only export used cars over a certain age. On the other hand, some countries do not allow any used car exports into their country and must be younger than a certain age. With our help, you’ll be able to confidently navigate these country-specific requirements.
