The process of shipping your vehicle to Peru

S hipping a vehicle to a foreign country presents its challenges. This is why nearly all individuals who desire to have a vehicle shipped internationally will hire professional transporters for their services. A professional shipping company’s knowledge, state of the art equipment, experience and resources allow them to carry out a vehicle’s overseas transport more efficiently than any other possible method that may be considered. They even give their customers extra comfort in knowing that their car is protected under the insurance policy they carry.

The process of international vehicle transport should begin first by your desire to find the right transport company. This will require some research and understanding of the transport delivery strategies for overseas deliveries. Once you feel that you have obtained enough knowledge, begin looking for transport companies with the services you need and a reputation that remains consistently positive. To better stay on top of everything involved in a vehicle’s safe delivery from the United States to Peru, create a checklist of all you must have accomplished before the automobile is set to leave for its new surroundings.

The ultimate checklist

  • Decide on a shipping method and transport company. Schedule your transport with them at least two months before you would like the vehicle to leave the United States to set out for Peru. This will give you plenty of time to meet the country’s import regulations and prepare the vehicle accordingly.
  • Contact the Embassy of Peru right after you schedule the transport to take place. Be prepared with paper and a writing utensil. Write down all of the information given to you. It is absolutely imperative that those shipping to Peru follow the country’s policy. Your vehicle’s import will otherwise be denied.
  • Gather all documents requested. Your license, passport, proof of paid tariffs, vehicle title and registration, and proof of residency are all common forms demanded by a foreign country. It doesn’t usually end there. The Customs office often requires other forms of proof such as certification stating the vehicle passed inspection. In Peru, only used vehicles are obligated to undergo inspection.
  • A few days before the scheduled transport, fulfill all that is asked of you by the transport company. Every experienced overseas auto shipper will demand that the vehicle is prepped a certain way to assure that it is at a lesser risk of being harmed. The preparation of the vehicle also assures the safety of those conducting the shipping process. Usually the tasks given are easy to accomplish and as simple as cleaning the vehicle inside and out.
  • If necessary, arrange a ride to the port ahead of the delivery date. It is very important that you are at the port the day of the automobile’s arrival. A port will not hold a vehicle for any reason. You must be there to retrieve it shortly after it is released to the port.
  • Just as you will have to do prior to the shipping process as asked by the transport professionals, inspect the vehicle for damages after it reaches port in Peru. Only this time, inspect it for scratches or other visible injuries that occurred during the transport. It isn’t at all common for damage to be done to a vehicle during its travels with transporters. As long as a reliable shipping company was hired, the vehicle usually arrives at port safe and sound.

The process of shipping a vehicle to Peru is fairly clear-cut. The transport company is capable of handling most of the grunt work and will even help you to better understand what is needed so that the vehicle can be accepted into the country’s borders. For individuals unfamiliar with international shipping, the assessment of the vehicle and billing of foreign taxes is perhaps one of the more confusing facets of the shipping process. The more expensive your car is, the more government customs is going to tax. Apparently they take 10% based on their own blue book value. Vehicle compliance is also tricky. For example, Peru has especially strict guidelines for automotives with diesel engines.

Seeing that following the foreign import policy is the hardest part of the shipping process, take ease in knowing that your overseas transport company is capable of making your vehicle’s import possible due to their ability to comply with strict import laws. Obviously, the type of vehicle you have must first be permissible into the country before the transporter can assure its safe delivery. Some transport companies are capable of finding loopholes through resources only they have access to. This is just one of the many reasons it’s wise to have a verified international shipping company carry out your transport.
