Where to find auto shipping companies

Before beginning the import vehicle into USA from Finland process you need to find a reliable international shipping company. You can ask family and friends who have previously sought a similar service for referrals. However, an online search will yield better results. Concentrate on finding those companies claiming to ship from Finland to the USA. After finding these companies, perform a background search to try and establish which companies have more experience and the best track record.

Check if they are registered with the Better Business Bureau, and check their reviews and ratings. The Department of Transport has a system called Safety and Fitness Electronic Records (SAFER), which they use to keep records of auto transport companies. You can check the safety rating of a company on the SAFER website.

Transport options

The two-possible means of transport between Finland and the US are air and water. A few auto shipping companies offer air as a means of transport. Air auto transport is fast and convenient. It is a very good option if your destination is a landlocked state in the US. However, the price for air auto transport is steep.

Water transport is the most affordable means. It is offered by most international shipping companies. Most of these companies offer two shipping methods.

  • Container shipping: The vehicle is loaded onto a container which is then loaded into a ship. You can deliver the car to the shipping company’s warehouse or have the company pick it up. The vehicle is then loaded into a container alone or with other vehicles. The single use containers are 20 feet long while the shared containers are 40 feet long. Of course, the shared option is cheaper. However, you have to wait for other vehicles headed for the same destination to fill the remaining space.
  • RORO shipping method: The vehicle is driven onto the decks of a large ship specially designed to transport automobiles. Once on the deck of the ship, the vehicle is firmly tied down to the deck. These ships carry a lot of vehicles. You have to wait until it is full for it to leave the port so it might not be convenient if you are in a hurry to ship the vehicle. However, this method is cheaper than container shipping.

Both methods have their pros and cons. The safety of your vehicle is our top most priority. We assure you that whichever shipping method you use, your vehicle will arrive in the US safely.

Before shipping the vehicle

There are two main things that one should do before exporting the vehicle from Finland.

  • Cleaning the undercarriage – To prevent the importation of foreign soil, which may carry pests, the US Department of Agriculture requires the vehicle undercarriage to be clean. So, make sure the undercarriage is steam cleaned before leaving the port in Finland.
  • Prepare the necessary documents – The documents needed before the vehicle leaves Finland are the vehicle purchase invoice, vehicle registration documents, and passport. The US customs will need these documents and the shipper's bill of lading. If the vehicle does not meet the DOT’s safety standards and the EPA’s emission standards but qualifies for exemptions, you will need to fill DOT’s form HS-7 and EPA’s form 3520-1. These forms identify the entry basis of a non-conforming vehicle into the USA.

When the vehicle arrives

When the vehicle arrives at the port, it has to be cleared by the US Customs and Border Protection. A customs inspection officer will provide you with a CBP Form 7501. The form is proof that the vehicle was cleared by customs. Without it, it is impossible to register an imported vehicle in the US. If you have the documents needed, the officer will assist you to fill the form. Unless you want to leave your car at the port and potentially incur more charges, you should have the proper documents.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
