Carrying a vehicle with personal items can be tricky. However, no one says it’s impossible. The only requirement: find a shipping company you can trust. As an experienced transport provider, EasyHaul keeps pace with the newest industry practices and regulations. Thus, here we’re scrutinizing the pros and cons of shipping a car with personal belongings.

What You Need To Know Before Shipping a Car With Personal Items

Licensed auto transport carriers don’t want to transport personal belongings. According to current government regulations, car transport companies are not licensed to deliver household goods. At the time of writing, the FMCSA and DOT prohibit the shipping of a car with personal items domestically. Nonetheless, nobody restricts shipping vehicle-related things like child seats or anything permanently mounted/bolted to the car.

Contrary to it, exporting a vehicle from the US with items inside isn’t taboo. The vehicle should conform to export requirements and items have to be placed into a container. If goods are properly declared and aren’t forbidden to export, moving them inside a container along with your vehicle overseas is pretty simple.
