Shipping Vehicles to Guam
You can find just about any kind of vehicle you can imagine on Guam’s roads, everything from a Lamborghini to a Smart Car, so you can bring anything you want. Please note however that any if you have purchased the vehicle in the last 90 days of shipping it, you will be subject to a special tax of 4% when you arrive. Please contact the Guam Customs and Quarantine Agency for specific details about shipping vehicles to Guam, as the requirements may change from time to time.
A Few Things to Think About Prior to Shipping Your Vehicle
If you have a lien on your car, it’s a good idea to contact your lienholder to advise them you’re shipping the vehicle here. The Guam Customs Agency may require you to submit a letter from them in order to pick up your car at the port. You’ll also need to have a safety inspection done prior to registering your car, so it’s wise to check it over before you leave and make sure you don’t have anything that could hold up that process. Make sure to maintain the original registration with you along with the title and evidence of insurance. Most state-side insurance companies don’t insure here so you may want to check out a few of the local providers before you get here.
Picking Up Your Car
The Department of Motor Vehicles will provide you with a temporary permit to operate your vehicle that is good for five days. Ensure you have your driver’s license, registration, and evidence of insurance with you. From there you can pick your car up from the Port and complete your vehicle safety inspection, then it’s back to DMV to finish the process and obtain your Guam license plates.
