International Car Shipping Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to ship a car overseas?

The starting price for global car transportation typically begins at $1,000 and can range up to $5,000 per vehicle. Factors influencing these international shipping fees include the vehicle's origin/destination location, shipping method (roll-on roll-off air shipping, air freight car shipping, or container car shipping), its dimensions, and specific destination regulations.

However, opting for a dedicated 20-foot container could potentially double the expense. Given the various determinants that influence the international shipping price, our team at MH Logistics crafts personalized quotations tailored to your unique vehicle transportation needs.

How long does it take to ship a car overseas?

Destination and Origin: Obviously, the distance between the departure and destination ports plays a significant role. For example, shipping a car from the U.S. East Coast to Western Europe can take roughly 2-4 weeks, while shipping from the U.S. West Coast to Australia might take 3-5 weeks.

Shipping Method:Roll-on/Roll-off (RoRo): This is a method where vehicles are driven onto the ship and off the ship. It's typically faster since it's a direct process.

Container Shipping: If you're shipping via container, it might take a bit longer due to the processes of loading the car into a container, securing it, and then unloading it at the destination.

Customs Clearance: Before shipping and after arrival, the vehicle must clear customs, which can add days or even weeks to the process, depending on the specific regulations of the departure and destination countries and the completeness and accuracy of the paperwork provided.

Domestic Transportation: If your car needs to be transported domestically to reach the departure port or to get from the arrival port to its final destination, this will add time as well.

Frequency of Shipping Routes: Some routes are serviced more frequently than others. If you just miss a ship, you might have to wait for the next available one, which could delay things.

Weather and Unforeseen Delays: Weather conditions, port strikes, or other unforeseen circumstances can add to the shipping time.On average, you can expect most international car shipments to take between 2-6 weeks from port to port, with potential additional time for the factors mentioned above. However, for the most accurate timeline, it's always best to consult directly with the shipping company, as they'll have the most up-to-date and specific information.

How to find the best international car shipping company

Embarking on an international car shipping journey often begins at one of the primary U.S. harbors. The pivotal step is selecting a credible and dependable company that offers end-to-end port services. While domestic relocations might tempt you to drive your vehicle, an overseas transition demands a seasoned automotive shipping specialist.

Here's a roadmap to securing the right partner:

  • Request a comprehensive car shipping estimate.
  • Verify the company is registered with the US Department of Transportation.
  • Delve into their expertise in navigating customs procedures.
  • Brace yourself for a meticulous documentation process.
  • Heed the preparatory guidelines provided by the auto shipping firm to ready your vehicle for its international voyage.

At MH Logistics, we stand poised to guide you through this journey, ensuring your  vehicle reaches its destination with precision and care.
