How much to ship a car to Jamaica?

My son just moved to Jamaica to start a business, but he needs a car. I’d like to send one to him, but I don’t know if I can. What would it cost me to ship a car to Jamaica?

Answer
What a lucky son you have! In general, it costs between $1,700 and $3,600 to ship a car from the United States to Jamaica. Of course, the real cost will depend on where you’re located in the US and these factors:
  • Vehicle Size
  • Shipping speed
  • Departure and arrival ports
  • Open or covered transport
  • Weather conditions
  • Delivery type (door-to-door, port-to-door)
Remember that you’ll also need to pay import taxes and registration fees on top of the initial shipping price before your son can start driving. You’ll also need a tax registration number from the Jamaican Tax Administration before you ship the car.
If you’d still like to send your son a car, offset the cost of shipping by saving on car insurance with Jerry.
