Is It Worth Shipping a Car to South Korea?

The process of shipping a car to another country isn’t something that can be handled by just anyone.  It takes trained and seasoned transport specialists to handle the overseas delivery.

There are too many facets that need to be addressed for it to be completed successfully. The car must meet the restrictions set by South Korea and secured for shipping with the appropriate equipment.

Shipping your car to South Korea is actually quite simple. The country’s auto import policy isn’t as strict as some countries’. Anyone can have a car imported into the country as long as it is of small or medium size. The owner of the vehicle must plan to live in the country at least one year if residing alone. If staying with a family member at their home in South Korea, a six month stay is required.
