Loading at ports
Although we are not an international car shipping company (yet!), we have experience working with international carriers to meet your needs, and we can haul to and from all ports across the United States. When shipping abroad, just remember there may be additional costs for permits to pick up or drop off the vehicle at the port.
Hauling at airports
If your car comes from or goes to an airplane, our assigned trucker can travel to the specified airport facility. We will make sure the carrier follows all directions for a proper loading and unloading. Your car will be insured with the motor carrier’s cargo policy and Ship-Quotes’s contingent insurance while shipping the car across country. The international marine carriers will inform you of their own coverages when the vehicle leaves the U.S.

No sales tax
We don’t apply sales tax to the shipping services we offer. The price you’ll receive is all-inclusive, and you will save money when shipping with us anywhere in the United States.

Frequently asked questions about international car shipping
When is my vehicle going to be picked up?
After an order is placed, we search our vast car carrier network to find a trucker to transport your vehicle. We will assign the best one available and give you an estimated pick-up time. The trucker will call you to confirm all the details ahead of schedule.
What paperwork will I need to provide to the port or airport for international car shipping?
That depends on the airplane or marine transport company, as well as on the respective airport/port. We will help you in every way we can with this matter.
Are items left in the car insured?
No, they are not. We recommend that all items, including important documents, are removed from the inside of the vehicle.
Is my vehicle insured during international transport?
Yes, it is. The insurance that will cover your automobile is the trucker’s cargo insurance. We have special requirements for all carriers that we work with in terms of the limit of their cargo insurance. Ship-Quotes’s contingent insurance during the U.S. portion of the transport also helps to further protect your vehicle. The international marine carriers will inform you of their own coverages when the vehicle leaves the U.S.
What is my transit time with Ship-Quotes?
Your shipping time will be calculated based on the distance of your move. We will provide you with this information when you get your quote and again when you place an order with us. It will be listed as transit time. Since each delivery is unique, it is possible that your car could be delivered faster than the estimated transit time provided.
