The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and Department of Transportation (DOT) have set strict guidelines that you must conform to for shipment of your vehicle into the United States. Your POV must also meet all USDA requirements for cleanliness.  Your vehicle will be thoroughly inspected to ensure its cleanliness, and that it is free of all dirt, soil, plant and animal life.  This is a “zero tolerance” inspection.  If your vehicle fails to meet these standards, you will be provided with an Agricultural Reject Sheet, identifying the areas that need additional cleaning. We can only accept your vehicle after these standards have been met.
