We considered shipping a car but with the shippings costs, customs duty, and hassle, we decided to buy one on the island. We looked for quite a while and bought a 2005 jeep wrangler 2 weeks ago for a very reasonable price - $3000 less than Kelly Blue Book value here - BUT it took alot of looking. Insurance, registration was no problem.
We shipped a car from Boston about 4 years ago. It was expensive. They took it by truck to Jacksonville and from there it went on the ship. It cost about $2000. for shipping. The car was old, but looked good. Customs did not believe our sales receipt, so they doubled the value and we had to pay duty their value. The shipping and duty came to 3 times what we paid for the car. Next car we bought in Aruba.
