#1 You paid for the transport before it begins or paid a large down payment.

Unfortunately, those unfamiliar with how auto transport works can easily fall into the hands of an unreliable transporter or even a con-artist. Nearly all reputable transporters won’t expect payment until the job has been completed and the vehicle has safely arrived at its destination. Be aware of anyone asking for money before the services are carried out.

#2 You forgot to research a few companies before making a decision.

Researching the companies that are local to you is important. Find a transport business that specializes in international auto shipping and maintains a good reputation for their successful deliveries. The transporter should carry the right licenses and certificates to prove their authenticity.

#3 You didn’t ask the shipping company about their insurance coverage.

Although it is rare that the vehicles in the care of a dependable shipping company become harmed, it is important that the car is covered by insurance. All genuine auto transport companies will carry insurance coverage for the vehicles they are responsible for.

#4 The car was never prepared for the shipping process.

When the car isn’t cleaned and cared for before it is taken by the shipping company, it puts the shipping process at more risk. To ensure a successful import into Argentina, prepare the car as requested by the transporter.

#5 Your car didn’t meet the country’s limitations or you didn’t provide proper documentation to Customs.

You must provide the Customs office with the right proof if you want the car to gain import approval. This includes paying all taxes associated with the import. Call the Embassy of Argentina for more information.
