If you’re shipping your car using auto transport company, you need to provide the below paperwork to verify the vehicle belongs to you and that you have insurance.

 Documents required to ship a car overseas:

 Ownership information: depending upon the ownership

  • If owned: Copy of your original title and registration.
  • If recently purchased: vehicle title and bill of sale.
  • If financed: a notarized letter with specific information including name of the owner and the Vehicle identification number (VIN) number of your automobile.
  • Personal information: You need to provide your identification -- state drivers license ID or a passport of the country where you are a legal resident.
  • Vehicle information: year, manufacture, model, VIN number and the price
  • Copy of your Insurance: You must provide a copy of your car insurance as a proof; this will however not be accepted if the insurance is expired

These documents are important when you need to ship a car both for your protection and for that of your car shipper.
