Our import vehicle into USA from France process

Planning the route

A journey of 1000 miles starts with the first step. But before the first step can be taken, you need to have a plan out of the route to take to reach the destination. This remains true even for car shipping. The entire route has to be planned out first.

This starts with a determination of the vehicle’s initial location. Whether it’s in a storage facility, in a person’s garage or a car manufacturer warehouse, its location is of primal importance. We use the location or coordinates of where the vehicle is in order to determine the fastest route to the most convenient sea port or airport in France. Normally, the closest one to the vehicle’s location is the most convenient, but the size of the port and whether the port serves heavy cargo loading matter too.

Airports that only serve passengers cannot be of help. Trust a reputable car transport company that knows France in and out to offer swift services and save on time. After all, time is money. It is for this reason that A-1 Auto Transport Inc. boasts of the best import vehicle into USA from France services. The flight route also matters because any detours taken will add to the mileage of the entire transport process. This will in turn add to the total costs. The most direct route to the United States is the most preferred. Once the means of transport and routes to be taken are determined, then the next step is in order.

International Car Shipping Cost Estimator

Cost estimation

Once we have a rough idea of the whole plan of action, we then provide clients with a comprehensive quote of how much the entire transport process; from the exact location of the vehicle in France to the designated location as requested by the client. Our international car shipping cost estimator works in a very pocket-friendly manner, taking into consideration the vehicle’s profile (car make, model, weight and year of manufacture), total distance covered, and the monies payable (taxes, customs, and duties). The quoted costs are accurate but should be treated as estimates, subject to slight changes as dictated by the actual realities on the ground.

Paper work

Every import has formalities that need to be followed. For instance, a vehicle being picked from the car manufacturer’s warehouse needs release papers. Also, before the vehicle leaves France, it needs supportive documents to grant its clearance. Such include receipts of customs and taxes paid together with any other relevant documents deemed fit by the French authorities.


Once the vehicle has the relative paperwork to support its warrant to leave France, it is cleared by the respective authorities and it makes way to the US. Shipment by air is fast and ideal where the client expects the shipment in a couple of hours or a day. Transport by sea, on the other hand, takes a longer time. The up-side of ocean freight is, it is way cheaper in comparison.

When you ship with A-1 Auto Transport, you'll have access to online shipment tracking in real-time. The anticipated time of arrival provided by the GPS actual tracking services is always spot on. Customers who frequently change locations will appreciate this feature. Particularly helpful for customers who prefer to pick up their vehicle from a port or airport, the ETA provides ample time for preparation.

Delivery Abroad


Once the vehicle arrives at the airport or sea port, it is cleared by the relevant authorities. From there the vehicle is shipped to the client’s address for door – door delivery arrangements or shipped to the pickup point for terminal – terminal services. The destination port can also act as the pick-up point.

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.
