For vehicles that were issued, by any jurisdiction of the U.S., a title or certificate that is no longer in force, or that are not required to be titled or registered, and for which an SO was not issued, THE OWNER MUST ESTABLISH THAT THE JURISDICTION FROM WHERE THE VEHICLE COMES DOES NOT HAVE ANY OWNERSHIP DOCUMENTATION REQUIREMENTS REGARDING SUCH VEHICLES and provide to Customs the original document that shows the basis for ownership or right of possession, such as a bill of sale, and two complete copies of that original document. Further, the owner must certify in writing to Customs that the procurement of the vehicle was a "bona fide transaction", and that the vehicle presented for export is not stolen.

*All documents requiring validation must be submitted by us to U.S. Customs no later than 5 working days prior to a ship's departure date. Documents received later than this 5 day cut-off are at risk for missing a ship's scheduled sailing and therefore at the sole discretion of the Carrier's roll-over policy. Note: Some Carriers charge a "roll-over fee and/or daily storage" for containerized cargo.
