Here at American Auto Shipping we can get you free quotes to ship a vehicle from or to anywhere in the United States, including overseas states and territories such as Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, to name a few. But while those states and territories are not part of the U.S. mainland, they are still parts of the United States, which means they are not international territories and as such do not require international auto transportation services, which are a bit different than when you ship overseas to a U.S. territory. Unfortunately, American Auto Shipping cannot ship to international destinations, and there are several reasons why.
For starters, shipping internationally requires a few different things from you and your shipping company, most notably paperwork. Shipping domestically is a lot easier for most people – that is, shipping within the contiguous U.S. – because of the fact that the paperwork required is fairly minimal. Your broker will need to have insurance certificates of any carrier they work with, but that’s all standard and not something that you will need to be too worried about. The paperwork you will be required to sign is basically the receipt of your shipment, the Bill of Lading, as well as an insurance inspection report at both pickup and delivery. On the whole, shipping a car within the United States is a fairly straightforward process and we make it even easier by getting you free quotes from different shippers.
International shipping, though, is a different beast entirely, one that not a lot of shippers actually do – and those that do have it pretty much handled, making it difficult to break into the international auto shipping industry. This is another reason why American Auto Shipping doesn’t provide international shipping services – it’s hard to find a shipping company willing to jump through all the hoops that come with shipping a vehicle to another country. There’s a lot of paperwork to fill out and a lot of things that you need to be aware of, some of which even we are not aware of. The rules of the game are different when you ship to another country, and with competition for customers as fierce as it is breaking into that industry is challenging and rarely cost-effective.
