Location & Shipping Port

The most important factor that should be taken care of is knowing the precise location of where your vehicle is in Australia. This includes the location of the warehouse or car manufacturing industries in Australia. Knowing the precise location of your car makes it easier to plan the on-road transport to the major ports in Australia for the car to be shipped. This is of course, in the case where the car manufacturing company does not provide hauling services to the ports.

Our port workers in Australia will need to set up a schedule, so this is an important first step. Freight containers are used to transport imported automobiles. Separate cargo areas must be set aside for each vehicle. Our staff must coordinate with local port authorities to accommodate the timetables of cargo ships.

This step also involves factoring in the location in the United States to which the car will be shipped to. This will determine which U.S. port is more convenient to ship your vehicle to from Australia. The closest one to the pickup terminal or precise location is the most conducive.

Rates Of Import Vehicle Into USA From Australia Process

Cost Calculator

Once the location of the vehicle and shipping port is known, then the next step is the cost estimation. We offer precise figures of how much it will cost to import vehicle into USA from Australia. We have a comprehensive post of how much it would cost to ship a vehicle from overseas. This is dictated of course by the size and weight of the car, the year of manufacture, the vehicle model, the car’s condition and the total distance covered. It is not possible to generalize, but in most cases, larger heavier vehicles are more costly to transport. This is because they require larger freight space in the cargo containers, measured I square feet. Shipping a normal sized vehicle from Australia into the US will cost you approximately $2,950.

The total transportation distance will, of course, include the starting location until the shipping terminal, the voyage distance and the delivery from the arrival port to the pickup terminal for terminal – terminal delivery or the residence for door – door delivery services.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
