By Torytheghost @GhostTourDir

Documents required for shipping

Automobiles, Motorcycles, RV’s, Boats and Jet-skis from the USA

Before beginning the auto shipping process of your car, boat, rv, or motorcycle please make sure to have all the following documents.

1. Original “Certificate of Title” or “MSO
2. Bill of Sale or Commercial Invoice
(Not required when shipping your own personally owned vehicle)

3. Copy of Photo ID, Passport or Drivers License

If the “original title” is not available, or IE if you have a lien holder, shipping 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 a contact name/tel # for verification.
Please contact our office for more information on this process.

When shipping an auto US Customs inspects the original title. With these shipping form you have a “Power of Attorney” which is an authorization from the “Shipper” or “Consignee” for the shipping of the auto and for AbleCargo.Com to art as your “export agent” with an acknowledgment 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

US Customs requires the original title for inspection a 3 full business days before sailing, in practice we require 1 week, all vehicle shipments must have validation from Customs before the vehicle can board the vessel
