How we Import vehicle into USA from Portugal

Contact Us

Every contract starts with an approach from a participating party. Clients need to approach a qualified automotive shipping company and seek services from them. It is crucial you choose a vehicle transport company that is reputed and has the muscle and resources to do the job. A-1 Auto Transport prides itself in offering the best when it is time to import vehicle into USA from Portugal. Our track record speaks for itself. Once you seek our services, we take it upon ourselves to guide you through the rest of the process.


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.

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. Remember, however, that the cost calculator will only provide an estimate of the overall financial implication. That figure is subject to change based on the on-site situation of the entire transport.


All required paperwork need to be finalized before the vehicle can leave Portugal port. Just like in every other country, port authorities have to clear the vehicle first. Don’t worry about this step, our team will guide you in this. Also in the documentation includes a detailed pre-transit car hauler inspection report.


After clearance, the vehicle then begins to make its way to you. We offer real time GPS tracking services to our clients so they can track their shipment in real time. This boosts our client’s confidence in us.


Once the vehicle arrives in the US, we notify the client as we confirm the exact delivery location. Once the vehicle is delivered, the payment is finalized. Everyone stays happy!

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!
