Cost of Car Shipping to Latin America from the USA

The rates on shipping cars to Latin America depend on the port of departure, and the destination port and country. The more container volume the port handles, the cheaper it will be to ship your car. For example, it is cheaper to ship from the port of Oakland, or the port of New York/New Jersey than it is to ship from the port of Tacoma. You can also save money on shipping by using a consolidated container, which allows you to split the cost of shipping with other customers. You will have your car in the container along with others.

Shipping Process From the USA to Latin America

The process of shipping your car to Latin America begins with choosing how you want it shipped. Most customers choose to ship in a container because of current record low rates, and the incredible value of being able to load other parts or household goods inside the container. You can also make the choice of shipping your car via RoRo to South America.
