Car Shipping Ambato

Ambato is a large export city for fruit, textiles and food products from Ecuador. The Pan-American Highway runs directly through Ambato making it a direct route for tourists as well as residents travelling not only in the city, but travelling to cities south of Ambato as well. Ambato used to have a vibrant rail system for residents to travel on, but that was dismantled several years ago. There is a public bus system for residents and tourists to use, but the public transport is often very full and proceeds slowly. Having the use of your own car while living in the busy city is very beneficial. Ambato is filled with beautiful architecture, parks and floral scenes, making it a very popular city to reside in. When driving you will find that roads are generally very well taken care of, but if you need to drive on secondary roads you may need to ask for directions because they often have no posted street signs.

Automobile Transport.

When you need to make plans to have your car shipped to Ambato, you will need to hire a professional automobile transport company. A professional auto transport company will assist you with the paperwork you will need for customs and will walk you through each step of the shipping process. You will need to provide the company with your social security number, driver’s license, vehicle title and a signed Power of Attorney to allow them to transport your car. If you need to have your car picked up and transported to the shipping port in the U.S. from your location, convenient door to door shipping will be available. You will need to clean your car inside and out prior to the scheduled pick-up as a pre-shipping inspection will be done to check for signs of damage including chipped paint or dents and dings in the car. You will also need to remove all contents from inside the car and from the outside of there are accessories that may fall off during transport. Cars need to have ¼ tank of fuel or less, have a fully charged battery and be able to be driven. If the car is not drivable it will need to be transported on a special carrier and there will typically be a fee for loading the car. Once you have provided all necessary information and decided on the type of transport that will be used, the agent will give you a total international shipping quote and schedule the car for pick-up and transport overseas.

Types of Transport.

When you are shipping a car overseas you can ship by open or enclosed transport. Most people prefer shipping with RORO, a form of open shipping transport that is quick and efficient to ship cars with. RORO ships can transport hundreds of motor vehicles at one time and the cost is generally far lower than other types of transport. RORO is a term used to define roll/on roll/off shipping where motor vehicles and other wheeled items are rolled (driven) onto the ship, secured for travel, and then rolled (driven) off the ship when it reaches its destination. If you prefer to use enclosed transport, you can choose Container shipping. Container shipping will cost more than RORO as you will have to pay a fee for the container use, but this type of shipping allows for a more protected atmosphere during shipment. Container shipping is often used to transport high value cars and other items, and can be utilized to transport household goods as well as the car if you need to relocate everything at one time. Your agent will go over everything about the different types of transportation with you.

Customs Regulations.

Customs requires that all cars imported to Ambato be within five years of age and must be up to par with Ecuador motor vehicle regulations. Many cars must have emissions updated prior to shipping so it is necessary to have your car checked before it is loaded to ensure that it is roadworthy in Ecuador. Cars will be inspected by customs officials and if they do not meet the safety standards, they can be delayed or even denied clearance for import entry. You need to have your passport, driver’s license and motor vehicle title ready for customs officials when the car arrives at the entry port. Missing paperwork or improperly filled out paperwork can also delay clearance. You can check with U.S. Customs for more information on paperwork you will need for export from the United States as well as travel advisories and documents that you will need to provide for export from the United States.

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!
