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”.

If your name does not appear on the title as the owner you should be entered on the “new owner” section. You and the previous owner must have signed and dated the title.

U.S. Customs requires the original title for inspection a full 3business days before sailing ( in our practice we require 1 week) and all vehicle shipments must have validation from Customs before the vehicle can board the vessel.
