Import Duties Rates.
What have the potential to be expensive are the taxes that must be paid in order for import to be approved. South Korea is one of the few countries that carry lower duty rates. However, they can change their import policies and tax rates frequently if they wish, so contact the Embassy of Korea to get the current policy information. It’s best to call a couple months in advance so you can prepare accordingly.
The Costs of Shipping.
To put an exact figure on the shipping costs for an auto transport from the U.S. to South Korea is impossible without providing the transport company with some details. Certain factors affect the costs of shipping.
- The shipping method and services purchased from the transport company.
- The distance that must be traveled to reach the destination.
- How much the vehicle weighs and what type of vehicle it is.
To receive a quote before you decide to buy services, provide the requested information to the transport company. Within minutes, they can give you an estimate of what the transport will cost.
