Buying a car from the USA


With locations in both California and New Jersey, West Coast Shipping provides international car shipping to Ukraine at affordable rates. We provide a door to door solution . We collect vehicles from anywhere in the USA, including auctions and dealers. Our in-house loading team specializes in loading sedans, coupes, SUVs, hybrids, electric, and salvage cars.


Why import a car from the USA?

Buying and importing a car from the the United States is quickly becoming a popular option for buyers in Ukraine. There are millions of used cars to choose from, including electric cars and salvage cars. Cars in the US are in better condition than in Europe, and can be found at an affordable price.


We make it easy to buy and import a car from the US to Ukraine.

You have a number of choices to choose from when looking for a car to buy in the US. You can buy directly from a dealer and private party, or you can save a sizable amount of money by buying through an auction.

New & Used US Car Auctions

The most popular auctions for new and used cars in driving condition are Manheim and ADESA car auctions. Both have numerous locations around the United States and sell millions of cars each year.

Salvage Car Auctions

Salvage cars are also a popular import to Ukraine. These are cars that have been written-off by an insurance company, which are then sold at a salvage car auction such as Copart and IAA. Salvage cars are bought and shipped to Ukraine because they can either be repaired, or used for parts. 

Auction Broker Service

If you are buying for the first time, auto auctions require you to undergo a lengthy and expensive registration process in order to become a member and bid. To avoid this, we offer a broker service where we can bid and purchase vehicles you select. Just select the cars you want us to bid on and tell us your limit. We will do the bidding at all hours and buy the cars for you. If you're interested in our auction broker service, contact us to begin buying.

Shipping a car to Ukraine

Delivering cars to Ukraine from the US is our specialty. We provide a door-to-door, turn-key solution to deliver cars to Ukraine from the US. We are partnered with a number of reliable import agents in Ukraine to unload your car from the container, clear import customs, and deliver the car from the port to your door. Our agents also help with registering your car in Ukraine.

Here's an overview of our services when shipping a car overseas:


We provide affordable international shipping solutions to Ukraine for any type of vehicles. Our warehouses in New Jersey and California provide strategic export locations that lower the cost of collecting and shipping your vehicles from auctions across the US. Because of our large shipping volume, we offer consolidated shipping in containers, which saves over 50% in international shipping costs. Consolidation is offered to the ports of Odessa, as well as to Germany, the Netherlands, Lithuania, and Poland. We will work with you to come up with the most affordable solution for your vehicle shipment.


West Coast Shipping delivers thousands of vehicle from the US to Ukraine each year,  and maintains an industry leading record with minimal damage. Each vehicle is carefully inspected and the condition is noted when picking up the car from the auction, when delivering the car to our warehouse, and after we load the car. This is done to ensure that during each step of the way to Ukraine, the car is delivered in the same way as it was purchased in. We also provide competitive rates on cargo damage protection that covers your vehicles during international shipping.



Transit times vary depending on where you purchase the car in the US, which state it's shipped from, and the final destination in Europe or Ukraine. For example, it takes 65 days for a ship to sail from California to Odessa, while it only takes 32 days from New Jersey. If you're looking for a faster way to ship your car, it may make sense to first deliver the container to a port in Europe such as Bremerhaven in Germany. A container arrives in Bremerhaven from California in as little as 35 days, and from New Jersey in only 12 days. You can then have the car unloaded and transported from Germany to Ukraine.


Car Shipping Cost to Ukraine

Rates on container shipping from the USA to Ukraine are currently at an all time low. You can ship a car from New Jersey to the port of Odessa for as little as $1,100 in a consolidated container. This includes the cost of loading the car at our California location, US customs export clearance, and shipping by ocean to the port of Odessa, Ukraine. The freight cost does not include import clearance, VAT or customs duty in Ukraine. Those costs can be obtained through a local agent which we can provide.


Electric cars imported to Ukraine are currently subject to no VAT, excise duty, and import duty.

Shipping Options

Cars are shipped to Ukraine using shipping containers. Vehicles are loaded in consolidated container, with up to 4 cars in a single 40 ft container. We use the safest methods of loading, which avoid damage during transit. 

Shipping via Roll-on/Roll-off is another option when shipping cars to Ukraine. However, unlike with containarized car shipping, you cannot ship anything inside of your vehicle, and the car be 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 options. 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.
