We Pick-Up Your Car

Have a VW bus at a dealership, restoration shop, auction or private residence? We can pick it up from anywhere in the continental US. Our network of trusted VW bus transporters spans the entire United States. 

By allowing you to ship from either US coasts, we help significantly cut down on transit times and allow for more affordable ground transportation solutions. We offer enclosed and open transportation to our shipping facilities.



We Load Your Car

Our in-house team has over a decade of experience in safely loading valuable classic cars and VW buses into containers for shipping. You have a choice of shipping in 20ft, 40ft and 45ft containers. We also provide consolidated shipping to the most popular ports overseas. 

We create recyclable frames designed around your vehicle. And unlike our competitors, we use specialized loading equipment, not standard forklifts that can damage classic cars.

Your VW bus is locked inside and secured by a special seal that identifies and tampering with the container along the way.

We Ship Your Car

After your car is securely loaded, the container is then taken to the port of Oakland or Newark-Elizabeth and placed on a ship for overseas shipping. 

International shipping times can vary from 14 to 64 days. You can get an exact estimate by using our car shipping calculator up top.

Upon delivery to an overseas port, you will be responsible for unloading, clearing customs and registering the vehicle. We can provide you with an overseas agent that can help with all import needs.

Please keep in mind that federal law mandates that carriers are only responsible for up to $500 in damage. We recommend insurance that is 2% of the declared vehicle value.



We Deal With The Export Documents

We prepare and process all necessary export documentation. We also clear United States Customs so your vehicle can leave the states.
