International Car Shipping from California

If you have decided to leave the sunny beaches and beautiful weather of the great state of California, you will need to make some very specific arrangements. These arrangements are even more overwhelming and potentially time-consuming if you are moving internationally.

One of the most important factors to consider will be the transport of your personal motor vehicle. Depending on the country to which you are moving, you may not have the option to ship your car there, as some countries import laws are stricter than others. Even if legally, you are allowed to bring your vehicle, you will want to determine the financial repercussions and decide if it is even worth the cost involved. It is in your best interest to follow the steps below when making arrangements to ship your vehicle internationally from California.

  • Research Customs and Import Law of your Destination Country - As previously stated, certain countries do not allow the import of vehicles from the United States, while others may require that they be of a certain model year or newer, or pass stringent emissions regulations. You can often find out this information by looking at the Consulate website of your destination country, but if you have no luck there, feel free to reach out to the embassy for more information. Sometimes, they may even be able to provide you with the costs associated in regards to importing taxes and fees. If not, you will need to move on to the next step.

  • Find Out the Cost to Import Your Vehicle - This can be the step during which you determine that it is not cost-efficient to ship your vehicle after all. You may determine that the cost alone of shipping, added to the import fees and taxes, makes this a fruitless endeavor. However, if you have a high-dollar vehicle or a car that has sentimental value for which price of shipping is no object, then you may choose to ship your car anyway. Remember that oftentimes, you will essentially need to ship your vehicle from California to a port on the East Coast and then from that port to the final destination country. Because this is composed of two long stretches of travel, expect for a much longer transport time and increased the cost of transfer.
  • Research and Select an Auto Transport Company - Once you have determined that it is still beneficial to ship your car internationally from California, your next step will be to determine what company you trust to perform the transport. Seek out a company with experience in international shipping, high qualifications, and an impeccable history of services. The more time you have to research and select a company, the better, but if you don’t have much time, try to find a reputable auto transport company with a quality of service and professionalism that surpasses all others.
  • Finally, Prepare Vehicle for Pick-Up and Patiently Await Arrival - Auto transport companies will provide you with a checklist specifying what you must do to prepare your vehicle for transport, including draining your gas tank to less than ¼ full, emptying your vehicle of all personal belongings, and removing all after market items that might be damaged during transport. Remember that your vehicle has a long road of transport ahead of it, so recognize that the transport time period may be much longer than you expected.

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!
