How long does it take to ship my car to Puerto Rico?

The time it takes to ship a vehicle from the USA mainland to Puerto Rico primarily depends on the specific port of departure in the mainland and various logistical factors. On average, here’s what you can expect:

  • Transit Time: Typically, it takes between 5 to 7 days for the actual sea transit between most major ports on the East Coast of the mainland USA and Puerto Rico.

  • Preparation & Documentation: Before the actual shipping day, there will be time spent on preparing the vehicle, documentation, booking with the shipping company, and dropping off the vehicle at the port. This could add a few days to the process.

  • Customs Clearance & Pickup: Once the vehicle arrives in Puerto Rico, there might be a waiting period for customs clearance, inspections, and eventual pickup or delivery of the vehicle. This can add another 1 to 3 days.

Considering all these factors, you can expect the entire process to range from about a week to two weeks. However, it’s always best to consult directly with your Direct Express Inc Agent for more precise timelines based on your particular needs and their current scheduling.


Can I pack personal items in my car?
