Does DUKW without armor requires export licence?

Post by TadeO » Thu Jul 21, 2016 6:23 am

Hi, wondering of above as I'm getting different messages. How much licence could cost if any? Slightly off the topic- did anyone try to place it on a container when shipping overseas?

Doubt that would fit in a container.....more likely will go as deck cargo.....at about twice the rate for the container....Try Main Freight Owens (in Chicago I think) for info on shipping to Europe from the US....lots of different ports Houston, Nawlins, Charleston, etc.

That is cool. Never seen a vehicle loaded sideways in a ctrain. I guess you can load one

You definitely require an export license to ship any ex military vehicle out of the U.S.. That's what I was told when I shipped a G506 Chevrolet 1-1/2 ton 4x4 to Australia a couple of years ago.
If I remember correctly I paid an agent $150 to get the permit for me after I had made an attempt to get it myself and failed. The Feds didn't seem to want to talk to anyone outside the country.

I don't think that loading duck sideways is a good idea. I understand that worked for that one in the link, but ours is full of liquids etc.. I got few quotes 11 to 13,5 K USD to ship it to Europe. Paperwork seems will be resolved by the shippers but they charge 1k for doing that.
