What is the International Car Shipping By Air?

Are you looking for quick methods of shipping your vehicle overseas? Well, international car shipping by air is one of the best ways to transport your car to the new city. However, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind when you decide to ship your car with a plane.

Budget the expenses. Now, it’s worth noting that air shipping is a lot more expensive than the regular ground transport. That’s why you need to set aside a convenient amount of money in order to cover the expenses. If the vehicle is worth a few thousand dollars, it may not be a good idea as the transportation could cost you more.

Research well. There aren’t quite a lot of companies which are going to offer international car shipping by air service so make sure that you get ahead of things and find out the best options. Check the ratings and their online profiles in order to ensure that everything is handled hassle-free. With this in mind, companies which are specialized in air transportation should be your primary option.

This is going to cost you a bit more but it’s definitely worth it. This is going to ensure the peace of mind which is much needed when shipping your vehicle with an airplane. Make sure to ask all the right questions when you arrange the transportation.

How to ship your vehicle with air cargo

Though it isn’t as challenging as you thought, but when you work with A1 Auto Transport service, we will assist you at every step of international car shipping by air. However, it is important to be aware of the few conditions that you must meet:

  • The car needs to be in properly working condition.
  • The car needs to be entirely empty of personal belongings.
  • You can’t leave more than 1/8 of the tank of gas.
  • You need to provide a spare set of key.
  • The car needs to be lien-free and if it’s not you need an authorization from the lien holder which is notarized.
  • Sometimes the S. Customs are going to take more than 3 days to get through clearance and if the vehicle is stored within this time you will have to pay the fees. The transit itself is going to take between 1 and 10 days depending on the destination.

Information that you need to get a quote.

Irrespective of the mode of transportation that you select, it is important to get a written quote. However, we will need requisite information to ensure that you get an accurate quote. Some of the documents that are needed include:

  • The title of the vehicle in an original.
  • The license plate as well as the VIN number.
  • The year, the model and the make as well as the measurements.
  • The value in US dollars and confirmation whether you want additional insurance or not. This is something that you need to take into account.
  • The Shipping mode – airport to airport, airport to the door, door to door and so forth.
  • The name, phone number, mailing address of the shipper in USA.

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!
