Is the Cost to Ship a Car to China from the US Worth It?

Is the Cost to Ship a Car to China from the US Worth It?
🇨🇳 China, (CN)

Learn if the cost of shipping a car to China from the US is worth it

As one of the largest automotive markets in the world, China is familiar with the importation and exportation of vehicles. However, it is always wise to have your own vehicle shipped over from the U.S. if you are moving to China or going there for an extended length of time.

Trying to buy a new automobile in a foreign country will bring about more obstacles than it’s worth.

Although import duties are always high when you ship a vehicle overseas, they are cost effective. Hiring a professional overseas transport company to ship your car to China is the easiest, quickest and best way to have a vehicle imported. They have the proper haulers and equipment to secure the vehicle during its travels. They also have trained employees with years of experience behind them. A professional shipping company will even be knowledgeable of the auto import policy for China, making it possible for them to guide you through the process. Overall, they make the entire experience smoother.

How Much Does It Cost?

The final cost of shipping a car to China is dependent on many factors. The type of car, its purpose, and the distance of travel will affect the final cost of the transport. The transport company you go through will also play a part of the cost. You should always gather several free quotes before settling with a transporter. Make sure that the quotes come from reputable shipping companies with foreign auto import experience.

Another part of the cost will include the duties charged for the vehicle’s importation into China. This is also reliant on several factors, but can be anywhere from 0-200% of the value of the car. Obviously, this means that the age and condition of the automobile will affect the duty rate as well. Having a personal automobile in China is a luxury, so don’t be alarmed at the taxes that must be paid. Find out what the auto import policy for China entails a few months before the transport is to take place. Ask about the duties associated so that you can prepare accordingly.

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!
