Planning is an integral part of the large process. The import process starts with planning the mode and means of transportation used to ship your vehicle. The most common means of car shipping is ocean freight while for luxurious high dollar vehicles are given the chance for air freight thanks to their financial sensitivity. The clients then gets to decide whether to opt for roll-on/roll-off mode of transport or enclosed container mode. Enclosed container mode is the most advised as the vehicle is protected against any external factors that would damage it.

The planning also constitutes the mode of delivery. Door to door delivery sees your vehicle delivered to your door step or office address. Terminal to terminal delivery, on the other hand, means that your car will be dropped off at a designated pick up station.

World Wide Delivery

Location & Shipping Ports

According to the location of the warehouse, the car is in Portugal, we make arrangements for it to be transported to the nearest and most convenient cargo airports and port in Portugal. One we’ve settled on these, our personnel in the specific towns work with the Portuguese airport and port authorities to iron out the paperwork and technicalities.

Cost Estimation

The total cost is estimated after the total distance of the transport, the vehicle make, weight & size together with the delivery option have been factored in. Our guide to the total cost will give you a rough idea of how we come up with the final figure.

Importing vehicle into USA from Portugal requires formalities like payment of duties and customs before the vehicle can leave Portuguese soil. Our team will guide you on the figures in play here.

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.
