Car on the Move

Who doesn’t love their car?

And when you live in Dubai, your car is one of your most prized possessions. You know what they say about cars: they get you places. Literally.

When it comes to going places, it is very normal for people to sometimes move overseas and take their cars with them. From sentimental value to classic models, there are many reasons why it is feasible to take your car with you sometimes. However, there are certain rules and regulations, including some international criteria that need to be considered when transferring your car.

Globally, different countries employ different rules when it comes to imports, taxations, vehicle specification and whether the car you intend to bring with you is even legal. Although most countries pose no serious problems, it is always good practice to have this information handy when you intend to move.

It is also important to follow the rules and regulations of your moving company. The first and foremost recommendation is to ensure that your moving company is internationally certified for specialized moving, such as cars, animals etc. Not all movers and shippers are licensed for such specialized tasks. Once you’ve clarified this, you must work closely with the representative from the moving company to iron out the details – marine and shipping insurance, documentation of ownership and taxes, emission standards, removal of hazardous material (such as emptying the car of gasoline, disconnecting the battery, etc).

Different shipping companies will provide different costs and will have their own details. Find out which plan works best for you, depending on which port your vehicle is to reach. It is imperative that you are fully in the know of the shipping methods, containers and other details so as to be stress free once your car has left port.

While your car is important, it is important to follow and abide by your destination country’s laws and legal requirements. This will help in avoiding any unpleasant surprises, making smoother transition to complete ownership and getting your car back on the road. Some territories across the world have a time limit to how old the car should be – importing classic vehicles for general use may pose a problem.

Expat Moves will connect you with companies who will make sure that your information is complete and correct down to every last punctuation, and all authentic registration and legal documents are at hand to present to the authorities at the port of arrival.

Happy driving!
