Moving Your Vehicle Overseas

Does it make sense to bring your vehicle with you to your new country, or should you sell it or store it? This decision depends on several different factors, including your individual needs, how long you plan to live abroad, and most importantly, your country of destination. If and when you decide to transport your vehicle overseas, our auto shippers will be there for you through every step of the process.

The following are some questions to keep in mind when making your decision:
  • Will you need a motor vehicle to get around in your new country? What types public transportation are available?

  • If your move is a corporate relocation, is your employer covering the cost of shipping your vehicle?

  • If you are responsible for the cost, are you willing to bear the expense?

  • Would it be more cost-effective to purchase a vehicle after you arrive? This option may make more sense financially than the cost of shipping.

  • What are the Customs or import restrictions and costs?

  • Will you be able to maintain your current vehicle at the same standards to which you maintain it in the U.S.?

  • Once you have moved your vehicle overseas, will you be able to re-export it or sell it?

  • If you decide not to take you vehicle, should you sell it or store it?
