To ship a car it generally involves loading the car in a container or else truck transportation to ship to the proposed destination. The container service is the most common way of shipping a vehicle as people don’t want the risk of their car getting damaged from the sun, thunder, snow, rain etc. where as with truck transportation it is an open carrier so there is a risk of the car getting damaged from the weather.

Generally a shipping company would provide insurance for your car. In most cases however, the shipping line usually takes care of this automatically. When you leave your car to the shipping company, do a quick inspection of your car before the loading in order to note any damage. The shipping company usually do their own car inspection but it is always best for you to do one yourself as well. Usually when there is damage the shipping company mark it down on the bill of lading that you will receive eventually. This bill of lading document is required in order to collect your shipment at the destination.

After all the shipping paperwork has been sorted with the shipping company from the origin, it is ready to be shipped. Once the car gets to the proposed destination, you will be liable to pay local customs and handling charges when the vehicle is entering another continent. You must pay these locally and show the local agent over there your bill of lading in order to collect your car. You need to show the bill of lading as it is basically proof to show that you own the car and have paid for all costs as far as quayside to destination. Before you pay your charges to the local agent, you should again do an inspection of the vehicle to make sure there is no new damage on your vehicle. Once you are fine with the car inspection and have paid the local agent it’s customs and handling charges and shown them the bill of lading, you are now free to collect your car.
