Vehicle Exporting from Miami

June 2, 2018 0Ocean Cargo

Bontrade can help export a vehicle from Miami to any port in the Caribbean, Central America, or South America. We make the vehicle exporting process as efficient as possible, lowering costs and hassle with our vast network of contacts and expertise. This is what sets us apart from other customs brokers, freight forwarders, and shipping companies – but why? What makes us so special? First, let’s define what a vehicle is.

According to US Customs and Border Protection (at CBP.gov) a vehicle is a “self-propelled device,” that is, one that is powered by a motor and operated, in person, by a driver. This includes cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Because these are complex and heavy machines, special care needs to be taken while exporting vehicles — both to keep them in good working condition for when they arrive at their destination and to make sure that they can be legally transported to their destination.

Vehicles follow slightly different rules than other shipping products. For the most part, this just means different regulations and a few odd details in the fine print. However, as a valuable trade good, vehicles being exported are also frequently subject to quotas. This limits how many vehicles can enter or leave the country. If the quota has already been met, this can hold up shipping and delivery and cause major problems.

Vehicles being exported also need a certain degree of space and carrying capacity. And, if they are being shipped in parts, an expert mechanic must be ready and waiting at the destination to put them back together and ensure that they are in working order.

Sometimes, vehicle exporting goes wrong. Space is just not available. Parts may be separated in delivery, or the vehicle may be damaged in transit. The expert may not be available, a mistake might delay the exported vehicle for days, or even send it somewhere else entirely. These are a lot of maybes and possibilities for error, and they all end up in higher costs and lost profits.

Why risk it? Whenever you ship out cargo, you should always hire professional help.  A professional’s expertise, connections, and agents in other ports can help smooth out the process and save you time, money, and hassle. Bontrade is not the only company that offers these sorts of services – there are many out there, just an internet search away. What makes Bontrade exceptional, however, is that it is one of the few that offers help with vehicle shipping.

Bontrade has the expertise and manpower to handle all of the details that go into exporting your vehicle.  All you need to do, for the documentation, is provide the vehicle, the accompanying proof of purchase, documentation with the vehicle’s identification number, and a copy of your ID or passport. Bontrade will do the rest, keeping everything up-to-date with the needs of the vehicle, the shipping companies, and the law, ensuring that the shipping of your vehicle goes smoothly from start to finish.

The wheel should be in your hands a week or so later, about 5-6 days to send it over, and about 2-3 days to ensure its safe and comfortable travel through customs – a journey that Bontrade assures.

If you are planning to export a vehicle, don’t do it alone; contact the experienced specialists at Bontrade and see what we can do for you.
