Car Shipping Documentation Help

CFR Classic’ shipping specialists are ready to assist you through every step of the shipping process. Whether you’re importing a vehicle into the United States, or shipping a car abroad, we’ll provide you with the necessary booking forms for the various government agencies for you to fill out and sign. Michele Blackmore, CFR Classic’ Ocean Exports Director, explains the documents needed for shipping a car:

Documents needed for Shipping a Car

Original Vehicle Title – CFR Classic must have the original title to clear U.S. customs. In some states, if the vehicle is of a certain age then a title is not issued by that state but rather a “transferable registration” is issued and in these cases this would act as a title and would be acceptable to clear U.S. customs. Note if title is lost we can, in most cases, apply for a new title for you at an additional cost.

Bill of Sale – CFR Classic will need a copy of the bill of sale in English which clearly states the year, make, model, VIN and value on the seller’s letterhead. Seller’s proof of ownership for the vehicle and ID would be helpful as well.

Copy of Passport or Valid License – US Citizens should get an International Driver’s License from the AAA Automobile Association in their area, and will need to provide their EIN #. Your American Driver’s License will suffice in Europe. As a tourist or temporary resident, you can drive with your American license plates in a foreign country until your registration for that year expires. If you are not a US Citizen we will need your passport copy along with proof of visiting the US. If you are not a US Citizen and have never been to the US, you will need for the seller of the vehicle to provide you with his/her EIN #

Valid Insurance – You do need insurance to drive on the roads in foreign countries. Insurance can be bought at the port of destination when you pick up your vehicle or you can arrange your insurance prior to the pickup of your vehicle.

Joey has spent his entire teen and adult life in cars. Joey's father owned a Jeep store, and Joey had his own used car lot that he ran himself from age 22 until I was 30. At 30 years old, Joey got "out of" the car business and joined CFR Rinkens. Joey started when there were only 9 people at CFR, but the company grew to over 150 employees during his time there. When Joey started, CFR Rinkens was shipping about 40 vehicles per week from Los Angeles. Joey established locations in Houston, Miami, and New York and within the first year, CFR went to shipping 150 cars per week. Joey started as a customer service rep and later moved up to sales manager, operations manager, and marketing manager. Joey then moved to Europe for two years and spent the entire time traveling through Europe meeting with clients. In 2022, Joey and his partners purchased CFR Classic from CFR Rinkens and he returned to California to watch over the operation more closely.
