Auto transport - need to ship car to Mexico

Post Posted: Mon May 05, 2008 6:52 am

Hi,
Does anyone know of a auto transport company that will ship internationally? I need to get my car shipped from California to Mexico City. I have contacted relocation companies, but since I am one person moving just a car they don't want to deal with it.

Any names of companies would be very appreciated.

Saludos!

I once checked into this regards having my car shipped from Vancouver, BC but found it was rather expensive, because it's the cost for the entire container. There would also be the matter of obtaining the car "temporary import" permit, which is something an owner has to do themselves. The car is legal in Mexico as long as you are, so it is matched up with your tourist card (and passport) or FM3. I'm not sure how the shipping company would work that out. I'll see what I can find out. I ended up having someone drive my car to Nogales for me, and I went north to pick it up and process the appropriate paperwork to get my car permit and sticker. I then had a 2 day drive ahead of me from Nogales to Mazatlan, and that went well. The toll highways are great, if you have the time to do it.

There's a few options that ship internationally from the U.S. One I know of is A-1 Auto Transport Inc www.a1autotransport.co...mexico.php but there are certainly others out there. The main thing you should check for is to see that they maintain local offices in both California and Mexico City (the one I mentioned does). This will make it easier to address any issues or miscommunications should they come up.

Edit: Did not realize this was from 2008.
