Hi everyone, I need some help.

Does anyone knows what is the best and cheapest company to ship an Automobile from Florida to France? I don't want brokers but direct international shipping companies. Can someone help?

Thank You,
Valeria

Recently had a friend move from Florida to Ireland. After she researched everything that is involved in the process, she decided it was much more practical to sell the car here, and buy another one when she arrived. The shipping charges, the huge tax you have to pay to register the car there, it proved to be so financially overwhelming, that it just wasn't worth all of the trouble and expense.
So make sure you not only find out about the shipping cost, but also all of the rules that you have to follow after the car arrives over there. You too might find the costs prohibitive. Good luck

Yamato transport used to do it. I have no idea if they are cheapest. But they are Japanese...so I doubt they will suck.

Sorry, I would suggest using a broker. There's some good ones out there; I know, I spent 18 years in the moving industry. The broker will do a lot of the legwork for you regarding paperwork, taxes, etc. And the charge is not substantial.
