A quick guide to shipping your car From puerto rico

Below we will share five important keys for the transport of your car to be carried out successfully:

  1. The minimum documentation required to start managing the shipment of your vehicle is:
  • Driver’s license.
  • Original registration of the vehicle.
  • Original vehicle title (license plate and title must not have any conditional sale or active loan)

Note: For financed vehicles, you must have a letter of authorization from the entity that is financing the unit in order to transport it.

  1. About the affidavit: In this document notarized by a lawyer licensed in Puerto Rico, you authorize the transport company to move your vehicle.
  2. For ACAA, DTOP and Stolen Vehicles certificates: These certificates must be requested in a specific order and quickly so that they do not lose their validity.
  3. To meet USDA requirements, it is mandatory that your car be pressure washed before being shipped. This washing service involves a general cleaning of the car (exterior, engine, chassis, wheels) and we do it in our Export Car Wash (with an additional cost).
  4. At the time of sending your vehicle, it must have ONLY 1/4 tank of gasoline. Otherwise, it could be rejected at the port and generate additional expenses.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can a vehicle be sent that is not in balance?

If it's possible. The bank or agency to which you are paying for the vehicle is required to give you a letter saying that you are paying for it and that you can transport it out of the country. With that authorization, you can ship your vehicle.

Is it mandatory to get marine insurance?

It's optional. However, for your peace of mind, we always recommend that you take out marine insurance for the transport of your car. The cost of marine insurance will depend on the declared value of the vehicle.

Do I have to pay any taxes in the United States?

In the United States, taxes are not paid. However, if you decide to self-pick up your vehicle at the port, the ports charge a NON-TWIC Fee of $80-$150 (for those consignees who do not have a TWIC Card). This Fee is not included in our quote, we only include it if you also hire our land transportation service from the port to your location. 

What are ocean shipping prices based on for my vehicle?

Regarding the prices of port-to-port transport, the maritime rates are fixed and are based on the costs set by the maritime lines.

Why do you need to know the data of the car to make the shipment?

With these data, we will be able to know the space that will be occupied on the boat and offer you a more accurate quote for your service.
