I live in Guam and California. I bought an 04 SSR for California but I will only get to drive it a few times a year. My 80 yr old father in law has fun driving it when I am not there, he likes the attention. I would like to buy an 05 and ship it to Guam. It would be really fun to have the only SSR on the island. I have talked to 2 dealers who say they cant ship SSR's out of the mainland U. S. and the local Chevy dealer in Guam is not alllowed to bring them in as much as he would like to. Does anyone know a friendly dealer who will both give me a good price and work with me on shipping?

Shipping An Ssr....

Hi, dbdguam,

As a practising attorney in California, and an SSR owner....

I believe you have the right to ship your SSR anywhere in the world, AFTER you have purchased it in the USA (which, for now, still includes California!). Of course, as with anything else, expect red tape and - bring money.....

You will be the coolest of the cool, with an '05 SSR on Guam!

Cheers,

here, here

dbd,

I agree with red. When my company sends vehicles out of the country, the main issues are codes and legalities in the recieving country, not here. I have no idea what Guam requires, but licensing and taxes there are likely a bigger concern (and cost) than anything a US GM dealer could assist you with. I doubt any dealer will have the expertise to help with shipping to, and paperwork in, Guam. You probably need to contact the registration authorities in that country for the requirements and get some of the many shipping companies to give you quotes. Expect delays.

It really would be way cool to be among the few (only) SSR fanatics in a country. Good luck.

p.s. Your father-in-law must love the prospect of car-sitting for you.

Importing into Canada is actually pretty easy. US Customs at the specific border crossing must be notified in advance, need both Federal and Provincial inspections, but the truck meets all requirements, including daytime running lights.

The only major stumbling block to importing new is GM Canada blocking warranty - no such issue on anything over 6 months/7500 miles.
