How Can I Safely Ship My Car to Ecuador?

Anyone can ship a car safely to another country if they hire a reputable and dependable overseas transport company. That’s why it’s important to find the right transporter to get the job done.

 Make sure you pay close attention to the reviews and ratings for the company before you schedule your car’s transport to Ecuador with them.

After booking your car’s shipping process, contact the Embassy of Ecuador. They will give you the information you need to lawfully get your vehicle entered into the country. Not all vehicles are allowed into Ecuador. This might be the hardest part of the foreign import policy to comply with. In fact, the vehicle must have been manufactured during the current year or the year prior. If your car meets the restrictions, begin satisfying the country’s import policy requirements.

Documents to Bring to Customs for Import Approval.

  • Passport or Visa.
  • License or Picture ID.
  • Original Bill of Lading.
  • Original Purchase Invoice.
  • Circulation Permit.
  • Certificate of Quality from the INEN.
  • Proof of Paid Tariffs.
  • Vehicle Title and Registration.

Only returning Ecuadorians are able to import an automobile duty-free as a part of their household goods. Proof of residing abroad for at least 3 consecutive years will be necessary if you wish to ship your vehicle under this condition. Let your transport company help you fulfill the requirements and try to stay organized and well-prepared. In order to ship your car to Ecuador without any concern, it is important to stay on top of all matters.
