Shipping your vehicle across state lines requires different protocol than shipping to another country. No matter where your vehicle is  going, we’ve got your solution: the right information to lead to the right outcome!Let’s begin, for a seamless shipping experience.

Documentation You’ll Need to Ship Your Vehicle

Let’s get into the legal nitty-gritty of what’s needed to ship your car. Using a shipping company will require you to demonstrate that your vehicle is registered and insured. Shipping within the United States include:

  • Title and Registration. You must provide proof that you own the vehicle with the original title. If there is a current lien on the title, you must provide a letter of permission from the Lien Holder.
  • Proof of Insurance. Proof of insurance is required; show a copy of your insurance with dates that a4re unexpired.
  • Photo ID. You cannot ship your vehicle without a valid photo ID. A driver’s license, passport, etc. are all appropriate forms of ID.

If you are shipping your vehicle to another country, it’s another story! By knowing what you need to provide, you can make the shipping experience a simple one! Here’s what to bring:

  • Original title and registration.
  • Proof of Insurance;
  • Valid photo ID;
  • Bill of Sale;
  • Sales Tax Proof;
  • Import Duty;
  • Original Power of Attorney.
