Shipping to South America?

Hi,
I'm totally new at this, will appreciate any advice from experts.
I need to [buy and] transport an Airstream to Argentina, and kind of soon,
for a documentary film shoot.

I found a few for sale, now how do I best transport one to Argentina?
What are my options [if any] ?

thanks a lot in advance,
Kyril

There are many services on the internet which will handle the shipping of vehicles, and the associated paperwork.
Google "Vehicle Shipping".
or try this link http://www.dasautoshippers.com/?refe...le+shipping-ex

Good Luck and Welcome

Hi Kyril,

DAS is one of the bigger Car Transporters, but you can also try ATI USA Inc. We shipped our Ambassador to Europe with them and they have destinations in South America too.

Good luck

I just sold my '77 Excella 500 31' to a guy in Germany. He is using AGS Forwarders Inc. International in New London, PA. It should be picked up within the next 2 weeks.
