Is it Permitted to Ship a Used Car to Brazil?

The process of shipping a car to Brazil isn’t exactly simple. It takes a great deal of experience and a lot of knowledge in regards to foreign import policies. If you’re trying to ship a used car to the country, you may not be able to.

The cost of taxes and duties for used vehicles being imported into Brazil is so expensive that it could add up to more than double of the car’s value.

To find out if you can get your used car imported into the country at an affordable price, contact a well-known international auto transporter nearby your home in the U.S. See what they have to say and even gather a quote just in case. Then, contact the Consulate General of Brazil to learn more about the current import laws in place. Ask about the restrictions for vehicles and about the tax and duty rates associated with car’s import into the country.

It is likely that you will be told that the car is not allowed in the country unless it is just temporarily. In this case, your transport service may have alternative suggestions. The laws for auto import in Brazil are subject to change at any time, so always check with the embassy too.

The Two Most Common Overseas Shipping Methods

There are two popular overseas shipping methods that customers use. If you area able to get your car shipped to the country, choose between these two shipping methods. Both of them are cost effective and secure forms of transport.

  • RO/RO transport is an open air shipping service. It is also the least expensive method. It is most preferred by those shipping multiple vehicles. The car must be completely empty for this shipping service.
  • Container transport is a more protected form of shipping. The vehicle is shipped inside of a container with other belongings. Even the car can contain your possessions as long as they are permitted under the country’s import law. This shipping method is a little more expensive but you can split the service with someone else.

Satisfied Customers

“The plan was to ship my car from California to Utah. I went through nearly 20 quotes after using an auto shipping site which linked to a bunch of brokers. Finally, I found A1 Auto Transport, a company with its own trucks with great reviews. I was sold. Joe was very competent, gave off the impression he’d done this a million times, and it really showed throughout the transport. He listened to my request carefully, offered me several options, stayed in touch during the transport, and made sure I was happy with everything. Overall, a great company which I would definitely recommend to others!”

“A1 Auto Transport was recommended to me by a cousin who had a roommate that moved to LA after graduating from university and was apparently very happy with their service. So, when my father-in-law needed a transport company to deliver a vintage car for his best friend’s 60th birthday, I thought I’d give them a call and see what they had to offer. I have to admit it worried me a lot because I wasn’t sure they’ll be up for the job: we’re talking about a 1959 Cadillac Eldorado that he and his buddy had been trying to restore for the last couple of months, blood, sweat, and tears and all. So no, we ain’t using an old rickety trailer to haul that baby out to Georgia in time for him to blow out his sixty birthday candles. A1 Auto Transport’s got these cool, modern enclosed transport trucks for the job. Their team offered a competitive shipping cost and assured us the car would be delivered safe to its destination. And you know what? They did. It was crazy. They understood how important and beloved that car is to its owners. It was a happy day and a very happy birthday to his best bud indeed.”

“Hi Cherie, I just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for taking such good care of our customers. Whenever anyone has an automotive move as part of their household move, I don't hesitate to give them your number - in all the time that I've been sending them to you, I have yet to have a customer call me back and tell me that they had a poor experience. You know that the moving industry relies heavily on word of mouth, so I'm happy to continue referring business to you. Thanks for your help and for all your small move referrals - keep up the excellent work! Aaron Brynen, ShipSmart, Inc.”

“I was asked by my partner to call A1 Auto Transport, though I was hesitant to speak with call center agents since I had bad experiences with them. Believe me, I find it really stressful to deal with them. Some would even tell you things you want to hear just to make you get off the phone, but they won't fulfil their promises. When I spoke with A1 about getting a car to Idaho, I was thinking it was going to be the same experience, but I was surprised. Their way of communication was entirely different. It was a seamless process. This made me think being a valued client can still be felt. My partner even thanked me since all his requests were processed the way he wanted. He thought I was assertive enough, since his requests were so specific. A1 Auto Transport made it easy for me. Can't think of any complaints.”

“I gave a broker a full month to find me a carrier before I found Joe on my own. Just in time, as I had 5 days left for the transport. My car arrived in Wisconsin in good condition and on time. Joe brought me peace of mind and made a potentially nightmarish process surprisingly simple. I can’t thank you enough for being so reliable and trustworthy. Since then, I’ve recommended A1 to a couple of acquaintances, and they were all impressed with the service. They all found Joe a pleasure to talk to and the drivers prompt and professional.”
