How to Ship Ambulances Overseas

When transporting vehicles overseas, clients need to determine the best way to ship. However, K International Transport can help with that decision! With efficient and affordable international automobile shipping services clients can transport automobiles via container shipping or RO/RO shipping.

One option is transporting the ambulance via a 20-foot or 40-foot container. Containers are a great option for those who want to transport certain personal effects along with the ambulance because clients can load the personal items in the container as well.

RO/RO is an efficient and affordable option for vehicles that are running, wheeled, and self-propelled. It is often less expensive than container shipping and less is needed from the client to get started. With RO/RO vessels, the automobile can simply be driven onto the vessel, which saves costs on loading and unloading. However, shippers cannot have any items in the ambulance, so this option is not ideal for those who are set on transporting personal effects along with the vehicle.

Potential Requirements and Regulations for Ambulances

Regulations imposed on imported automobiles/cars/vehicles depend on the destination country and customs. These regulations often 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, which can be tedious. With a reliable and experienced international shipping company like K International Transport, a knowledgeable agent can inform clients of possible issues before they arise.

Although transporting ambulances can be more expensive because of their larger size and weight, K International Transport gives clients the best possible rates for international automobile shipping services!

How to Get Started

The first step when looking to transport vehicles overseas is to supply K International Transport with all the necessary documents 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 or cars;
  • The shipper’s full name, address, and photo identification;
  • the consignee’s full name, address, identification, and contact information;
  • prepayment in full (once all the costs are known);
  • proof of the commercial value of the automobile;
  • 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 ambulance’s location in the United States. Once the procedural steps are taken and completed, the ambulance(s) can be loaded onto a vessel and shipped overseas. 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.
