Your #1 Export & Import

Shipping a Car from the USA to France

Understanding Military POV Shipping:

Military POV shipping refers to the process of relocating your privately-owned vehicle, such as cars, motorcycles, or SUVs, when you’re stationed abroad. When moving to France as part of a military assignment, you’ll want to consider the following key points:

1. Compliance with Regulations: Ensure your vehicle complies with French and U.S. regulations, including emissions standards, safety requirements, and necessary documentation.

2. Shipping Options: Choose between roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) or container shipping. RoRo is cost-effective but exposes your vehicle to the elements, while container shipping offers more protection.

3. Required Documents: Prepare essential documents such as the Certificate of Title, Bill of Sale, and proof of insurance. You’ll also need a valid U.S. driver’s license and passport.

4. Import Taxes and Duties: Be aware of any import taxes or duties that may apply when bringing your POV into France. Our team can help you navigate these regulations.

5. Shipping Preparation: Ensure your vehicle is in good working condition, and document any existing damage for insurance purposes. Remove personal belongings from the vehicle.

6. Transit Time: Understand that transit times can vary depending on factors like the departure and arrival ports, weather conditions, and shipping method.

7. Insurance Coverage: Consider purchasing additional insurance coverage for added peace of mind during transit.

    How long does it take to ship my car to France?

    The time it takes to ship your car to France from the ports of Los Angeles, CA, Houston, TX, Savannah, GA, or New York, NY can vary based on several factors. Here are some general estimates for shipping times from these major U.S. ports to France:

    1. Los Angeles, CA:
      • West Coast ports like Los Angeles often have shorter transit times to Europe due to their proximity to the continent.
      • The average shipping time from Los Angeles to ports in France can range from 2 to 4 weeks.
    2. Houston, TX:
      • Houston is a major Gulf Coast port, and shipping times to Europe from here may vary.
      • The average shipping time from Houston to France can range from 4 to 6 weeks.
    3. Savannah, GA:
      • Savannah is an East Coast port, and shipping times to Europe from this region may also vary.
      • The average shipping time from Savannah to ports in France can range from 3 to 5 weeks.
    4. New York, NY:
      • New York is another major East Coast port with varying shipping times.
      • The average shipping time from New York to ports in France can range from 3 to 5 weeks.

    These shipping times are approximate and can be influenced by factors such as the specific shipping route, the shipping company’s schedule, the vessel’s availability, and any potential delays in customs clearance or other logistical considerations. It’s essential to work closely with your Direct Express Inc. Agent to get accurate and up-to-date information on shipping times for your specific needs. Additionally, the type of service you choose, such as standard shipping or expedited shipping, can also affect the transit time.
