Confirm eligibility of vehicle

For your vehicle to be allowed into the USA, it must meet the regulations set up by importing authority in the country. Cars must meet the safety and emission standards in the US before owners are permitted to import vehicle into USA from UAE. You will also need to explain the reason for bringing the vehicle into the country and your individual status as well. The rules are quite strict and must be adhered to for importation to be successful. In some cases, getting confirmation that you can import your vehicle takes time, making it important to wait for the go ahead before making decisions that may end up increasing its overall shipping costs.

Hire a reliable shipping company

When you receive confirmation that your vehicle is eligible for importation, you can begin looking for a shipping company. There are many companies that offer auto shipping services in the UAE and United States, making it important to do some research and select the best one for you. Ensure that they are a registered importer and will be able to deliver the vehicle in one piece. They should also advise you on the best way to prepare the vehicle for transportation so as to avoid unnecessary delays. Registered shipping companies often focus on making the move from UAE to America as smooth as possible.

Get your export insurance certificate

When planning to export your car from the UAE, you will need to visit one of the offices put up by the Road Transport Authority in the country. These offices are set up to assist locals and foreigners that want to export their cars. At the office, you will be issued with an export insurance certificate which comes at a cost of approximately AED 70. The certificate which acts as insurance for your vehicle gives you two weeks to ship the car to the USA before it expires.

De-register your vehicle

To import vehicle into USA from UAE, car owners must go through a de-registration process while still in the country. They are required to present themselves at the transport authority offices with necessary documents which include vehicle registration card, Export Insurance Certificate, driving license, and current number plates. Once all documents are submitted to the office and payment made, you will be given an export certificate which gives you the go ahead for importation of your car into the United States. The certificate must be presented to the officer in charge, who will then give you blue license plates indicating that your car is ready for export.

Prepare your vehicle

Before handing over your car to a shipping company it is important to remove everything in it.Β  Most insurance companies that cover vehicles that are being shipped to the USA from UAE discourage packing of items such as boxes during shipping and view them as a liability. Also, majority of shipping companies that move vehicles between these two locations often drain fuel from the tank and disconnect the car battery for safety purposes. If unsure of the items that cannot be transported with your vehicle, confirm with your shipping company.

Arrange for delivery in America

Depending on the shipping company hired to import vehicle into USA from UAE, you may need to arrange for pickup or have it delivered to you. Some companies offer door to door delivery which is convenient for car owners that may already be in the US when the car arrives. However, if you will not be in the country for one reason or another, the best option is to have it dropped off at the terminal of the shipping company for pickup later.

Satisfied Customers

“I had to get my daughter’s new Honda to South Dakota, so she wouldn’t have to drive it herself. I trust her driving skills, but not out of the city. I’m glad Joe was available to help. He promised to handle it with the utmost care and at a good price. The very next day, a truck arrived to take it. I could finally rest easy. By the time my daughter knew what was going on, it was already on its way. Thanks Joe! A1 Auto Transport is a truly reliable company. I’ll call again if I ever need to.”

“Thanks for the follow-up message. Yes - I used A1 Auto Transport - just under a different quote number. The car arrived in San Antonio after 6 days in fine condition.Β The website is great. I'll recommend your company to anyone who wants to transport a vehicle. It was easy, cheap, and safe.”

“For one reason or another, shipping a car between states makes me a bit worried. Using another company prior to A1 Auto Transport which left a huge scratch on my car didn’t help ease my trust issues either. The quote Joe gave me wasn’t the lowest on my list (I did a ton of research this time), but I was less interested in getting a deal as I was in getting my car to Illinois safely. I paid a deposit after he picked up my car. By that point, it was in his hands. I was glad he called so much during transport. He must’ve felt I was stressed out by the whole experience. Fortunately, my worries were for nothing. This company pulled through and brought my car as I left it. Thank you Joe!”

“There isn’t enough kudos in the world to give to A1 Auto Transport. We needed two dozen sports and executive cars transported from Delaware to Miami, which included a brand new Audi A8 and a Tesla Roadster. You can see the careful planning they undertook to make sure every vehicle is secured and protected during the entire trip. Their drivers are professional and fully trained. They put our minds at ease by taking the most efficient route, making the whole transaction easy and problem-free. We had reservations at first, because it was our first time dealing with the company and assumed it might cost us a lot to move that many vehicles on the tight schedule we had. But A1 Auto Transport followed through with their promise to deliver the cars in pristine condition, and within the timeframe and price they quoted. Exceptional service.”

“The car arrived in a very professional manner. The driver was extremely polite and was extra careful as the rain continued to pour down. He made every right move to see the transaction was a complete success. I can give an excellent "A+" rating to your services.”
