Fewer requirements than for other overseas vehicle transport
Because Puerto Rico is a Commonwealth of the United States, shipping regulations to and from the island are less rigorous. We can help make sense of all the requirements for your move to Puerto Rico.

Required documentation for exporting your vehicle from the US to Puerto Rico
  • Vehicle title or authorization letter from the lien holder
  • Vehicle registration
  • Notarized export power of attorney, leaving the top line blank
  • If the vehicle is newly purchased, please provide the bill of sale
  • A copy of the driver’s license

Additional requirements to move your auto to Puerto Rico Please be prepared to provide a full set of keys for the vehicle, trunk, and any other locked compartments.

Your vehicle needs enough gas to be driven onto and off of the carriers, but no more than that. We ask that you leave your tank one-quarter full.

Clean your vehicle, inside and out, and empty it of personal items in order to expedite the inspection process on the shipping and receiving end. You may leave the following items in the car or trunk: spare tire, tire jack, car seat, speakers or toolboxes that have been permanently installed. However, the toolboxes must be empty.

Your vehicle must have at least five-and-one-half inches (5½”) of ground clearance.

Importing your vehicle from Puerto Rico to the US
The regulation application of ACT#8 of August 1987 requires that these documents be submitted and these actions completed three (3) days prior to shipping a motor vehicle off the island.

  • Original title of the vehicle
  • If no title is available, letter of release from lien or lease holder
  • Certificate of “no fines due" must be validated no more than five days prior to shipping
  • Certificate showing that the vehicle, and motor, has been pressure-washed
  • Hacienda voucher from Puerto Rico’s Internal Revenue Service (a $10 fee)
  • Notarized export power of attorney, leaving the top line blank
  • Police permit slip

The Puerto Rico Police Department requires a pre-vehicle shipping inspection for all outbound vehicles. Inspections are performed weekly, on Mondays and Wednesdays. The vehicle must be available at least 48 hours prior to the inspection days.

Vehicles that are on the island less than 120 days do not require an inspection. Our knowledgeable and courteous staff will guide you through all of the requirements and paperwork necessary to move your vehicle to or from Puerto Rico.
