A Bit About International Auto Transport Services
It’s a big world that we’re living in, one that is slowly getting smaller as technology brings us closer together. Today, it is much easier to find someone to ship your vehicle overseas and to other countries, but it’s still not as easy as it maybe should be. Let’s be clear: we here at American Auto Shipping cannot provide you international auto transport quotes because we do not have any companies that ship overseas – it’s fairly complicated for shipping companies, which makes it more difficult for customers to find them. International shipping is also not in as high demand as interstate transportation, which means fewer companies that actually provide international shipping.
As you likely know, or can guess, international auto transport prices are higher than interstate shipping prices simply because of the additional time it takes, the extra work that goes into international transportation services, and how much it costs transport companies to ship to another country. There’s a lot more involved with shipping internationally than you may think; lots of paperwork, additional licenses, not to mention all the fees and whatnot attached to them. This can increase the prices that you will pay, and those are just up-front costs; the price to actually transport vehicles overseas to another country, particularly when it comes to the cargo ship, are also quite high.
International auto transport services are going to be more difficult to find not only because there are fewer companies that offer it, or because many times the price is cost-prohibitive for customers, but also because it just isn’t in that high of demand among customers. Plenty of people ship vehicles internationally, just not as many as those that ship within the United States. This puts a real damper on the industry, and it means that fewer companies can actually enter into it and find success – it’s very tight-knit and niche. This tends to result in higher prices as well, as there is less competition on international quotes.
