What to know before shipping auto parts overseas

When booking a car parts courier service to send bonnets, doors, and other auto parts internationally, follow these tips to ensure a smooth delivery:

  • Check the dimensions and weight of the shipment in the size tool to determine the best service for you.
  • Ensure that all components, such as engines or radiators, are properly drained of any liquids before shipping. Items that contain liquids are prohibited from shipping.
  • Familiarise yourself with the customs procedures and regulations of the destination country. This includes understanding any necessary shipping documentation, permits, or restrictions that may apply to the specific car parts you are sending.
  • If you need to transport large and heavy auto parts that do not fit on a pallet, consider booking a dedicated van or ask for a custom offer. Inform us during the booking process if you need tail lifts or other assistance for the collection or delivery.

FAQ on how to ship car parts internationally

What auto parts can I ship overseas?

You can send car parts of different shapes and sizes, such as:
  • Body panels
  • Bonnets
  • Boots/tailgates
  • Bumpers
  • Doors
  • Engines - drained of oil and lubricants
  • Exhausts
  • Gearboxes - drained of oil and lubricants
  • Seats, including child seats

The list above only covers the most frequent examples, but there are many other car parts that you can ship internationally.

Are there any restrictions when shipping auto parts overseas?

Yes, while you can ship most auto parts overseas without any problems, there are certain exceptions to be aware of:
  • Shipping items that contain liquid is prohibited. When sending a gearbox or an engine, you must clean and package the product without any oil or fuel.
  • Sending batteries is also restricted and should be sent with specialised courier services.
  • Tyres must be deflated before shipping to avoid being pressurised.
  • Shipping auto parts containing glass, such as windscreens or car lights, is restricted. These need to be carefully packaged and can only be shipped at your own risk.
