Car export to USA, auto transport information

 

Information

The majority of auto transport and car export handled by Cargoux Shipping Inc. are loaded and shipped from: NY/NJ, Baltimore, Jacksonville, Miami, Houston, Los Angeles, Chicago and Toronto. Some cars are also loaded and transported from Norfolk, Wilmington, Savannah, Atlanta, Cape Canaveral, Port Everglades, Tampa, Oakland, Tacoma, Vancouver, Montreal and Halifax. Our own dispatch department can arrange pick up from any location in USA or Canada, it might be auction, dealership or even private residence. Our set land transport rates from 404 locations (auctions) across USA & Canada. Usually the port closest to the location of the auto that is purchased will be sent. In some cases it is beneficial to deliver the vehicle to another port from which there is more shipping traffic and better rates to the final destination. Usually all that is needed is the original title for the vehicle that has been purchased. Auto transport from Florida ports requires an original Power Of Attorney from the last owner indicated on the Title. This will authorize export shipping. If the last owner is a company a Power Of Attorney must be submitted confirming the person signing for the company is authorized to do so by the company. Clients can also arrange own delivery to one of our warehouses/terminal.

 

Land Deliveries

Actual delivery time depends on location and distance. Taking weather conditions into consideration, most deliveries will take from 1 day to 8 days of travel time. Deliveries from Alaska & Hawaii are special orders which are dealt with on case by case basis. Orders should be placed only when cars are paid in full. Also be aware of the status of the title. Sometimes titles can be delayed. You will need the title before the auto is loaded for ocean shipping. Usually pick up occurs within 2-3 days after payment and arrangements are made. We guarantee pick up within 5 business days from most locations (90%). However, some locations are considered 'difficult' and are not guaranteed.

 

Ocean Deliveries

Out of USA and Canada presently it is cheaper to transport autos in containers to the majority of destinations, however in case of single auto transport, Ro-Ro might be more cost efficient than in containers. In cases where the vehicle is very large or won't fit the container Ro-Ro is usually the only option. The door of a marine container (40' High Cube) is 92 inches (92" or 234 cm) wide and 101.5 inches (258 cm) high. Some boats on trailers which are a maximum of 94" wide might be still loaded in containers (tilted/on an angle). All units are shipped by Ro-Ro (roll-on/roll-off) vessels. Rates are provided on a case by case basis. Vehicles are loaded within 2-5 days (original title present), but it could be affected by many factors like overbooked vessels, shortage of equipment, congestion at ports/terminals and other factors which cannot always be anticipated. All transit times are estimates only and never guaranteed. Moreover, steamship lines have the right to even change routing as long as the shipment is transported to the final destination. Documents (including original title) are always couriered by us by Fed Ex or TNT to our agent at destination port or directly to the consignee. On request they also can be couriered to the shipper or even a third party. Our agent will contact consignee that has been indicated on Bill of Lading when the auto transport or container arrives. This notification is a courtesy and is not mandatory.
