Before making the decision to take your car with you overseas, investigate the laws of your arriving country. Some places may require specific modifications be made to your vehicle, or may charge extra for insurance on imported vehicles. Most vehicles can be easily shipped aboard cargo containers or vessels. The cost of your shipment will depend in part on the size of your vehicle, so be sure the measurements you give the shipping company are accurate. For transport to foreign ports, your shipping company should be able to help you with required paperwork. The receiving port may have additional documentation and loading fees, and in some situations you may have to pay an import tax.
