We ship Cars Internationally, Motorcycles, RV’s, Boats & Jet-skis To & From International

We arrange the complete international move importing from overseas to USA, shipping by Container Vessels or Ro Ro Vessels for “conforming" vehicles or cars which are over 25 years old.

A conforming car would be previously US registered or there is a plate on the car stating from the manufacturer that the car meets with US Specifications.

Nonconforming vehicles are subject to EPA and DOT approval and therefore we do not handle these types of imports as modifications are required and are extra costs to the shipping prices, list of registered importers or check out this site

Before beginning the international auto shipping process of your vehicle please make sure to have, or obtain all the following documents:

Original “Certificate of Title” or “MSO
Bill of Sale or Commercial Invoice
(Not required when shipping your own personally owned vehicle)
Copy of Photo ID, Passport or Drivers License

If the “original title” is not available or if you have a lien holder, shipping your auto is still possible. If we can show customs an original company letter headed document from the lien holder, stating that they authorize the automobile shipping with a copy of the title, and contact info with a name and phone number for verification. Please contact our office for more information on this process.

When shipping an auto, U.S. Customs inspects the original title. With these shipping forms you have a “Power of Attorney”, which is an authorization from the “Shipper” or “Consignee” for the shipping of the auto; therefore, AbleCargo.Com can be your “export agent” with an acknowledgement of our “terms and conditions”.
