Choose A Shipping Method
Prior to shipping a car to Honduras, you’ll have to choose between available delivery methods: container shipping and RORO. The latter is more appropriate for shipping vehicles that run under their own power, while the first is an ideal solution for inoperable cars and auto parts. A container protects your car from elements while en route. Contrary to container consolidation, RORO shipping doesn’t allow you to place any additional items or parts (except a spare tire and a jack) inside a car. Both options are affordable, but RORO can be a little bit more expensive.
How Much Does Shipping a Car To Honduras Cost
EasyHaul ships vehicles solely to Puerto Cortes, home to the only deepwater port facility within the region and the busiest and largest seaport in the country. Its location and accessibility make it the most suitable port to ship container freight.
There are a few factors that may affect your quote: distance, the location of the port of origin, preferred transportation method, and the operability of a vehicle.

Know the Import Regulations Before Shipping a Car to Honduras
First of all, make sure that your vehicle is eligible for export from the USA. To be on the safe side, double-check all information in documents. This will not only prevent delays at Customs but save you time and money.
Import regulations in Honduras aren’t strict but they are subject to change. All passenger vehicles imported to Honduras can’t be older than 7 years according to the current stipulations. Although there is an exception: you can import classic vehicles after paying all applicable taxes. Buses are under restrictions as well: they have to be no older than 13 years. Import of right-hand drive cars is completely prohibited.
Taxes and Duties in Honduras
Shipping a car to Honduras requires paying different import taxes. New cars are subjected to a 10% luxury tax, while a 3.4% CIF-based tax is applicable to all used imported vehicles. There are no fixed taxes for trucks, as they vary from 6.8% to 10.2% depending on the truck’s size and its displacement.
To pick up your vehicle at the destination country, you’ll have to provide your government-issued ID or passport, the original Bill of Lading, title, invoice for a car, and your Registro Tributario Nacional (or an individual taxpayer number).
