Shipping a Vehicle Oakland, California, USA to Santiago, Chile
VEHICLE: Jeep Wrangler including 2 bicycles and gear

METHOD: 20 Foot Container

For the outbound shipment from Oakland we used Allison
Shipping (Allisonshipping.com) and spoke with Meredith
Petrlich.  The service cost about $3300.  They were very
businesslike, prompt and helpful.  We were pleased with
their service.

in a skyscraper and were very helpful, but charged us
$700 for what seemed like little work other than hiring a

and Ecuador without a Carnet de Passage and had this

through almost all of South and Central America w/o a

and Ecuador .)  Title, registration, proof of insurance and
international drivers license (available at AAA) are

originals locked deep in my vehicle.  Remember, south of
Mexico it is very unlikely that a customs agent has ever
seen a California title before.  If you smile and act helpful
at customs, they will tend to let you interpret the
documents for them.  South America is far easier than
