When transporting cars to Asia and Oceania, clients, with the help of their freight forwarder, need to determine the best way to ship. With efficient and affordable international automobile shipping services clients can transport automobiles via container shipping or Roll-on/Roll-off (RORO) shipping.

Clients that are interested in shipping vintage or classic cars that are very valuable or non-running, should elect to transport them via 20 foot or 40 foot container. Containers are great options for those who want to transport personal effects along with their automobile because clients can load the personal items in the container alongside the car.

RORO is an efficient and affordable option for those who are shipping vehicles that are running, wheeled, and self-propelled. It is often less expensive than container shipping and less is needed from the client because the loading process is very simple. With RORO vessels, the automobile can simply be driven onto the vessel, and costs are saved on loading and unloading. However, shippers cannot have any items in the car, so this option is not ideal for those who are set on transporting personal effects along with their car.

Clients should know about certain requirements and regulations imposed on imported cars in other countries. Regulations imposed on imported automobiles / cars / vehicles may dictate the maximum age of cars that may be imported, how clean automobiles must be, how much gasoline has to remain in the tank, the size of engines, taxes on vintage and classic automobiles, and what can and cannot be left in automobiles during the shipping process. Luckily, clients often do not need to know specific details regarding these rules and regulations, because K International Transport can help with this. With a reliable and experienced international shipping company like K International Transport, a knowledgeable agent can inform clients of possible issues before the shipping process commences.

 

The first step when looking to transport vehicles overseas is to supply the freight forwarding company with all the necessary documentation needed to schedule a successful overseas shipment. Shippers and consignees will be asked for several documents prior to shipping, including the original title of the car, their full name and address including photo identification, the consignee’s full name and address, prepayment in full (once all the costs are known), proof of the commercial value of the automobile, and a signed power of attorney form to allow the freight forwarding company to legally manage the shipment.

Additionally, the company will need to know the desired date of shipment, and the car’s location in the United States. Once these steps are taken and completed, the automobile(s) can be loaded onto a vessel and shipped overseas to Asia or Oceania ports.

For clients that are unable to transport their automobile from their location in the United States to the domestic port closest to them, K International Transport can set up reliable and efficient inland trucking and transportation services. With these services, a reputable moving company will pick up the vehicle from your door and move it safely to the port in the United States.
