A few things to think about and before you ship a car overseas:
- When exporting motor vehicles from the United States, the exporter must provide
documents that demonstrate proof of ownership. In almost all cases, this will be the certificate of title. Both the original documents and multiple copies will be needed.
- New cars that have never been titled can be exported by submitting a document known as
a manufacturer’s statement of origin. The manufacturer’s statement of origin may be obtained from your car dealer. The original and two copies must be presented to Customs.
- The car is subject to Customs inspection at the time of export. If international auto
transport is by ship or plane, both the vehicle and ownership documents must be presented to Customs at least 72 hours before lading. The Customs will conduct its inspection at that
- The car will be authorized for export only after Customs has inspected it and certified that the ownership documents are considered in proper order. Your original title is then being stamped to
certify that your vehicle was exported from the United States. You must also have gas tank drained less than 1/4 tank.
