Planning and Arrangements Before Shipping Cars Overseas

Before our international shipping company will transport an automobile overseas from the United States, we will need certain information and  several documents from you. These documents include the original title of the car, the full name and address of the shipper and the consignee, photo identification of the shipper and consignee, prepayment in full, proof of the commercial value of the automobile, and signed power of attorney forms.


K International Transport can then help you decide between roll-on/roll-off (RORO) or container shipping for their vehicles. RORO shipping is typically the most affordable option for clients that have wheeled and self-propelled automobiles, and aren’t shipping any other cargo. With RORO, the automobile can simply be driven onto the vessel.

Container shipping, on the other hand, is best for clients that have classic or vintage cars and want to ship personal effects along with the vehicle. Keep in mind that you will have to pay for the container, and load the personal effects into the container yourself. The destination port can sometimes make this decision for the client. Some ports have restrictions preventing RORO from being an option.

Depending on the port, other restrictions and customs regulations may also apply. A few common restrictions include tariffs on vintage and classic automobiles, age restrictions on automobiles allowed in the country, various cleaning requirements, and removing certain materials from the vehicle, including license plates. It can be difficult to understand and pin down every potential restriction and regulation.However, our reliable freight forwarding company can help determine the specific rules for the destination country and port.

Once this is figured out and the shipment is scheduled, you’ll then drive or transport the automobile to the domestic port. If you live too far from a port, or you need help transporting the automobile to the port, no worries! K International Transport can provideaffordableinland trucking and transportation services. We will ensure that your vehicles get from your door in the United States, to a domestic port, and,finally, to their destination port in Jeddah or Dammam, Saudi Arabia.
