Whether you bought a vehicle in Canada and you live in the United States or you moved from United Utates to England, a title is required to go from here to there or there to here. If you don't have the title you aren't going anywhere. Unless you have an address in the States, then getting the title is no problem. Many vehicles over the years come to the States on freighters or transport trailers and do not have all the import papers. These are called Grey Market vehicles. To title a grey market vehicle some of the forms you need are: Bill of sale or affidavit of sale,Vehicle Power of attorney, copy of your drivers license and a Vin Verification form.
We just had a call from a freight booker whose customer is from Senagal, bought the car at an auction in Florida and is shipping the vehicle to Norway. And just discovered there is no title for the vehicle and it is sitting in customs waiting for papers. This situation happens more than you think. Often times no one thinks of it till they are paying storage fees at the docks. Lesson to be learned is before starting the shipping procedure contact WWW.GetNewTitle.com and secure a title. There is no fast service dealing with the DMV around the country. We have many good relations with DMV employees that can help speed it up but it still takes time to process. In the situation above they had already paid 5 weeks of storage fees before they called us and it took us about 5 weeks to secure there title. They paid a lot of extra money in storage fees.
