I have yet to start calling the different companies for shipping my car over to STT but I wanted to ask everyone first what their experience has been with shipping a car. I will most likely drive to south FL to save a couple $100 as I have heard through this post that some of you have. I have a Volkswagon Jetta but will be looking to sell it and find something more island appropriate and cheaper to fix if something happens.
Who did you find to be the cheapest? Seems like most have spent $1500-$2000.
OR is anyone moving from the island that has a decent car that's looking to sell?? Yes I've been looking on craigslist and the classifieds here.
Don't forget customs duty if car or any parts, thereof, are foreign made.
The VIN will give you that info.
You pay road tax, registration and license plate fees.
Make sureyou you have multiple original docs for your paperwork as it seems no one wants a copy.
We are using an agent, Ferrol Trucking, to handle all of the registration process. My Jeep is scheduled to arrive on Monday (Memorial Day) and I have been told it will be ready by Friday, registered, tagged and detailed...ok, I'm kidding about the detailed part. We'll see how that goes.
