Beijing, also known as Peking, is one of the world’s most populous cities, and the capital of the People’s Republic of China. Housing the headquarters of most of the nation’s state-owned companies, Beijing is a major trade hub and appropriately well connected to the national highway and high-speed rail systems. The Port of Tianjin, roughly 170km to the southeast of the city, is one of the world’s largest, and the nearest major maritime connector to Beijing itself.

Various Shipping Methods

For pick-up and delivery, you can select between door-to-door shipping and terminal-to-terminal shipping:

  • Terminal-to-terminal – you’ll personally drop the car or other vehicle off at the nearest convenient departure terminal, and pick it up from the arrival terminal in Beijing.
  • Door-to-door– your vehicle will be collected right from your doorstep and delivered to the location of your choice upon arrival in Beijing.

You’ve also got two choices in the method of shipping itself:

Ship Your Car Beijing
  • Ro/Ro (Roll-on/Roll-off) shipping– Here, the vehicle is simply driven onto the train, cargo ship, or other carrier. Straps secure the vehicle in place, preventing movement. It’s driven back off after arrival at your port of destination.
  • Container shipping – In container shipping, your car is loaded into a cargo container, which is then placed aboard a train, ship, or other vessel. Vehicles are secured in place within, to prevent movement-related damages. Though pricier than Ro/Ro shipping, this method offers an additional layer of protection that’s perfect for those shipping extremely valuable cargo.
Customs at Beijing

China has their own set of customs rules and regulations dictating which vehicles are accepted, and how they are taxed. Some of the highlights follow:

  • As of 2010, China does not allow residents importing for self-use to bring in used vehicles. Only new cars will be allowed.
  • You can only import left-hand drive vehicles in this country.
  • The cars that run on diesel with the exception of jeeps are forbidden here.
  • Cars are taxed at a rate based largely on engine displacement. Vehicles are considered a luxury good here, and may be subject to rather steep tariffs. Foreign experts and companies with roots in China may be exempt from this tax.
  • Note that you, as the owner, must be present in China at the time of delivery.

Whenever shipping a vehicle to another country, a number of documents will be required:

  • Invoice with the purchase value.
  • Written application along with a declaration of the import cargo.
  • Proof of the age of the car.

Final Preparation Steps

With the customs rules and regulations out of the way, there are only a few remaining steps to take prior to shipping. Be sure to take care of these beforehand:

  • Brakes must be in proper working condition.
  • The Fuel tank should be only about one-quarter full – this will help the shippers to load and unload the vehicle easily, while keeping weight to a minimum.
  • Personal belongings – with the exception of emergency tools, like a spare tire – should be removed from the vehicle prior to drop-off.
  • The car alarms must be disabled – not doing so can result in the battery draining.
  • Exterior accessories, such as bike or ski racks, should be taken down. Any fixed items like the antenna should be lowered, for their own protection.
  • A thorough cleaning should be performed on the vehicle, inside and out, to expedite the inspection process and avoid long times spent in quarantine.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ 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.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
