How Much Does It Cost To Ship Car Parts?

Shipping car parts from the USA doesn’t have to be expensive. Of course, if you would like to ship an engine, for example, we recommend using some sea freight companies because the shipping via the air will be expensive due to high weight. However, we can get a discounted quote for you with carriers like FedEx and DHL. So if you want to ship something huge, contact us directly.

Using a package forwarding company makes sense when you need to ship smaller and lighter parts like cables, switches, tires, rims, brakes, you know what we mean… The price of the shipping depends mainly on the weight and dimensions of the package and the shipping method you choose.

Make sure you calculate the price of the shipping from the USA to YOUR country with our postage calculator tool below. If you don’t know the dimensions and weight of your package that contains the car parts, you can ask the seller or make some estimation based on the content of the package.

How Does Car Parts Forwarding Work?

If you want to buy from an online store that does not ship outside of the USA, you can take advantage of a package forwarding company (if the online store offers international shipping, you can skip this section because the direct international shipping is usually cheaper). Forwarding car parts works in 3 simple steps:

  1. You get a US address – so you can order car parts from the US stores (find the examples below).
  2. Order car parts and wait for the delivery to our warehouse. Once we receive your package, you will get a notification email from us.
  3. Ship car parts from the USA – complete the customs declaration for your package and select the shipping method from the USA.

So, now you know, how does it work. In the following section, we are going to answer other frequently asked questions.


Can You Ship Car Parts To My Country?
