Shipping

How can I find out the shipping price for the car?

You can use our shipping calculator to get the idea how much the shipping is going to cost. However, the shipping calculator will only give you a rough estimate, because shipping price depends on the size and weight of the vehicle. For exact quote please contact our shipping department at shipping@goilcars247.com.

Is the shipping calculator accurate?

No. The shipping calculator only provides an estimate. Please contact us at shipping@goilcars247.com to get the exact quote.

Can I use my own transportation company?

We suggest to check with our shipping rates first, because many cars have to be consolidated in A container in order to get cheaper rates, and our shipping company can provide consolidation services to many destination points in the world. However, you are free to use your own transportation company, but you will need to send us a copy of the Bill of Lading after the vehicle shipped from USA / Canada.

How do I know how far my car is from the exit port?

We will notify you via email or Phone number. This should give you the idea on how much the transportation would be to any major exit port. Please note that exit ports are located in NY (New York), CA (California), TX (Texas), FL (Florida), MD (Maryland).

Is my vehicle safe while being transported between the states?

Your car is fully insured while being transported between the states; however, if you would like your car to be insured while being transported from port to port, additional insurance is available for ocean transportation at 1.5% of the total invoiced price. A 500$ deductible fee is applicable to all claims.

How can I check the status of my shipment?

We will be notifying you on your status through emails.

How will my cars be shipped?

Your cars will be shipped by “RORO” or “Container” shipping.

What is “RO RO” shipping?

“RORO” means that your car will be driven inside the ship. This method of shipment is available to various destinations and does not involve consolidation. Please refer to this link to find out more information on “RO RO” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roll-on/roll-off

What is “Container” shipping?

“Container” shipping is the most popular way to ship a car. Basically, your car will be loaded inside 20 feet or 40 feet container, and the container will be sealed.

How many cars can be shipped in a 40 feet container?

Usually 40 feet container fits 3 mid size cars or SUVs, or 4 small cars, such as Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla.

What is consolidation?

Consolidation is when you only have one car to ship but you do not want to pay for the whole 40 feet container. Our shipping company will consolidate your car to several of popular destinations. For example, if your car is consolidated with 2 other cars in a 40 feet container, you are ending up paying only 1/3 from the price of 40 feet container. If there is no consolidation to your port, we can ship a car in 20” dedicated container.

Which port is better for consolidation?

The most popular port is New Jersey. However, always check with our shipping department about consolidation to the given country at the time of purchase.

How long does it take to get my car?

Transit time is 45-60 days from time of purchase. But please note delays could occur due to weather conditions, slow traffic, snow bird season, among other situations that could cause delay.
