Important Bolivian Shipping Alert: As of the year 2008, Bolivia does not allow used cars to be imported into the country that are older than four years old, and it also bans trucks, buses, and some commercial vehicles older than six years into the country.

This decree was issued in December of 2008 and is still in effect – it was issued in response to the country being flooded with old, used vehicles from other countries, which had a serious environmental impact and depressed the Bolivian auto market. Even if your vehicle is less than four years old, you must obtain an import clearance form from the Bolivian Customs department.

Shipping Information

Since Bolivia has no coastline of its own, your vehicle cannot be shipped directly to Bolivia itself, but most likely to a destination port of Arica or Iquique, both ports in Chile, the western neighbor of Bolivia. The shipping company that you contract with will be aware of this and will make the appropriate arrangements.

You will, however, still have to arrange for your vehicle to be somehow transported to the port of departure in the United States, and that will depend on which region of the country you live in. If you live in the east, west, or south, there are many port cities available that your shipper might operate from. If you drive your vehicle to the port of departure, you can save some money on the total cost, otherwise, it must be picked up by your shipper and trucked to the port city.

Then you’ll need to decide whether your vehicle will be shipped using the container method, or via Roll-on/Roll-off (RORO). Shipping via container affords more protection for vehicles but is also more costly. If you share a container with another vehicle, that cost can be reduced somewhat, but it will still not be as inexpensive as RORO shipping.

RORO is not a protected shipping method and calls for the vehicle to be driven on and off the ship under its own power, and it is simply lashed securely to the deck in transit. If you choose this shipping method, you are not allowed to have anything in the vehicle, other than its spare tire and tire jack. You must also have no more than ¼ tank of gas in the car for the journey.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Bolivia

  1. Purchase invoice
  2. Technical report
  3. Proof of insurance (policy)
  4. Certificate of origin
  5. Registration
  6. Description of vehicle

Other Requirements

You will have to be able to demonstrate positive ownership of the vehicle being shipped, usually by means of a bill of sale with your name on it. The title for the car must be clear of any liens unless the lienholder has provided written authorization for you to export this car from the country.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency will also need to see documented proof of registration and your driver license before they will allow the vehicle to be exported. You should contact this agency well ahead of any planned shipment, in case of any hold-ups that may need to be ironed out.

At the destination port, there will be an import duty imposed and the vehicle will have to clear Customs in whichever port it is shipped to. You can contact the Bolivian Embassy in the U.S. for questions about any restrictions on the Bolivian side of the shipment.

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Bolivia

A1 Auto Transport is one of the leading auto transport companies in the U.S. Our access to the best transport technology and equipment has made it possible for us to ship inside and outside of the nation for decades. Shipping heavy equipment or oversized cargo to another country on your own will only prove to be stressful and expensive especially since you must comply with Bolivia’s import laws. Luckily, our trained specialists have the experience and knowledge necessary to make the process of transporting such equipment to another nation much easier.

The type of cargo you’re shipping will determine which transport methods are available to you as well as how much you’ll pay for your shipping services. Consequently, the type of cargo you plan to ship to Bolivia is deemed as heavy equipment or oversized cargo if it is too large for a 40ft shipping container or heavier than the standard vehicle. To give you an idea of the shipping services we have to offer, here is a short list…

  • Farm Equipment
  • Tractors
  • Backhoes
  • Forklifts
  • Construction Equipment
  • Excavators
  • Pavers
  • Skidders
  • Loaders
  • Industrial Machinery and Equipment
  • Large Vehicles and Dump Trucks
  • Haulers
  • Cranes and more…

A1’s Four Overseas Transport Methods

There are a total of four overseas transport methods offered to those in need of shipping heavy equipment or oversized cargo internationally. The shipping services available to you depend on the type of heavy equipment you’re shipping to Bolivia. In some cases, ground transport methods will also be needed to complete the delivery. Our shipping professionals will make sure your cargo’s transport is carried out successfully regardless of the services you choose. To give you further reassurance, you can track your cargo with real-time satellite service accessible through any WiFi enabled device.

Some of our transport options are less expensive than others. Although each of our shipping methods may not provide the same protection, every one of our customers is given partial insurance coverage. We do offer additional insurance for those who wish to protect the full value of their heavy equipment. Here are the four shipping methods we have to offer…

  1. Container Shipping
  2. Flat Rack Shipping
  3. RoRo Transport
  4. LoLo Transport

Container shipping offers the greatest protection yet it is the most expensive shipping option for overseas transports. Flat rack, RoRo and LoLo shipping are all open air services that are carried out in different ways. For flat rack shipping, the cargo is strapped to a metal rack before being placed on the boat. RoRo shipping is the least expensive method and requires that your heavy equipment or large vehicle is operable, while LoLo shipping is best for inoperable vehicles and crated equipment.

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!
