Once your vehicle is imported to the US, your paperwork is cleared through US customs. The customs office reviews your paperwork and looks for irregularities, mistakes and simple laziness. If the customs officer approving your paperwork believes you did not put in the time to produce high quality scans of the vehicle's documentation, he may request a detailed review which can result in a customs exam. The simple reason of the paperwork having illegible handwriting, may be enough of a reason the customs officer will flag your vehicle for a customs exam, and review your paperwork and vehicle in greater detail.
To import a car to the US, we suggest providing the original title issued overseas along with a bill of sale. If a title is provided, it will be stamped upon import approval by US customs. If there's no physical title provided, only an electronic record of the import entry will be available which may be an issuer for your local DMV to register the vehicle. While DMV requirements to register an import car vary by state, the DMV office will usually require the original foreign title, the original import documentation stamped by US customs, and the bill of sale.
There are over a dozen charges involved with importing a vehicle to the United States. We make it simple and provide a door to door service which includes most charges.
