Before buying a car in the US, you need to check vehicle history report. For that, you need to know VIN number and then run a vehicle history report.
We can check electronic databases using VIN number and see whether the car was in any kind of accident, how many people have owned it as well as obtain any additional information regarding this particular car from the USA.
All vehicles brought officially to the USA by the dealers or made in the country are registered in various computer databases of insurance and other companies connected to vehicle use within the country. You can always check VIN number of the car at www.carfax.com website.
One of the most important aspects of buying a car from the USA is to obtain preliminary estimate of any possible repair work a car might (or might not) need.
Next important step is determining the time needed to ship the car within the United States. This process depends on many factors such as the time of the year, car’s initial location in the country and its proximity to major ports, and many other factors.
For example, about two weeks are needed in order to transport the car from one coast to another.
Customs clearance takes about 5 days to process.
The shipping cost from the USA depends on whether we can consolidate several cars into one shipping container or whether we need to ship your car by itself in a 20' container. Usually, consolidation process might take anywhere from one to three weeks.
Mostly, cars shipped from the USA and Canada are loaded into 20, 40 and 45 ft. containers.
After container is loaded, it is taken to the port , loaded on the ship to be delivered to the destination port.
Transit times vary, depending on origin and destination.
If you want to receive your car from the USA as soon as possible, we would recommend shipping it by air, it will be expensive but fast. Depending on destination it will take about 7-14 days.
Ocean shipping can take anywhere from one month to three, depending on the distance, ocean transportation company chosen for the shipping, and the destination point.
