We are a Dutch/Filipino couple living in Dubai - UAE & want 2 bring our 1972 Lancia with us when moving to philippines as it is our wedding car. Is that possible either as a car to be registered or as part of household goods (i.e. as it is also an investment as it is one of only 332 remaining worldwide and we would have space to keep it indoors).

Hello, and thank you for visiting Movers.com!

If you'd like to ship your vehicle overseas for your move, you will require international auto transport services.

Shipping your car overseas

There are several methods of shipping your vehicle overseas for your move. They include:

  • Roll-on and roll-off service: The vehicle is directly driven or rolled onto the ship and protected by a deck. It is usually the most cost-effective process.
  • Container service: This method is the safest way to ship your car. Your auto is placed in a separate container, and it is rolled onto the ship.

Since you are shipping a classic car, you may want to use container service to ensure it is safe during transit and arrives without a scratch in the Philippines.

Make sure you have the proper documents

Importing your vehicle into a new country can be a complex process. For the vehicle to clear customs, there are specific requirements and necessary documents. Your international auto shipper will often provide documentation services to help you get your paperwork in order for your shipment.

Get your vehicle insured

While your auto shipper will provide some minimum insurance coverage for your vehicle, you should purchase additional insuarance to ensure your car is completely protected in case of damage. Ask your company about their additional insurance options, the costs, and the stipulations of the policy.
