Ship Your Car to Finland

Look no further for a reliable international car shipping service to Finland. We work with customers to ship their cars, motorcycles, and household goods to Finland from the USA. We are able to collect vehicles from anywhere in the US and load them at one of our shipping facilities in California or New York.

Shipping Options


By using a container for shipping, we can load anywhere from 1 to 6 cars (depending on size), the vehicles can either run and drive or be project cars. We offer consolidation when shipping to the port, saving you money by shipping your vehicles along with other cars in the same container. When shipping high-value vehicles, we can load them in their own dedicated 20ft or 40ft containers.


Shipping via Roll-on/Roll-off is another option when shipping cars overseas. However, unlike containerized car shipping, you cannot ship anything inside of your vehicle, and the car is in run-and-drive condition to be able to drive on and off the ship. The ports which support RoRo vary widely, and so do the rates.


If you require your vehicle overseas as quickly as possible, we recommend shipping the car via Air-Freight service. Compared to lengthy shipping times and possible port delays when shipping in a container or via RoRo, shipping your car by Air is the quickest shipping option. Transit time is estimated at around 3 to 10 days, depending on the documentation and customs requirements.


Motorcycle Shipping Overseas
How Motorcycles Are Shipped Overseas

Motorcycles are a popular import from the US, and most customers use a container. You can fit up to 8 motorcycles in a 20ft container and up to 16 in a 40ft container. They are securely strapped and braced. This makes it the perfect solution for wholesale buyers and dealers. Use the shipping calculator on this page to get a quote, or contact us.

Another option is shipping your motorcycle via air freight to any international airport. It's a more expensive option, and it requires a custom crate to be built around the bike. However, air freight will minimize transit time.
