Move Car Brazil

Brazil conducts a great deal of ocean-going commerce with the rest of the world, partly because it is enjoying a boom in its status as a manufacturing giant, and because its nearly 5,000 mile long eastern coastline provides numerous ports for that commerce. Obviously that means the country itself is very large, so the choice of a Brazilian destination port will be very important so as to avoid a long, arduous drive after arriving in the country.

Most vehicles shipped into Brazil will be shipped via the Roll-on/Roll-off ships, which are equipped with ramps so vehicles can be driven on and off under their own power. Older classic cars may not be fully functional and may require Lift-on/Lift-off transportation, wherein a crane would place the vehicle on and off the ship at port. A third alternative would be container shipping, which allows for a vehicle to be transported in an appropriately sized container that protects it during shipping, but it considerably more expensive.

Something else to consider when shipping/exporting your car to Brazil is the U.S. port of origin, from which the vehicle will be shipped. On the west coast, Oakland, Los Angeles, and Seattle are major port cities, and on the east coast, Norfolk, New York City, and Miami are very busy. On the Gulf of Mexico, Houston is a large commercial center for international shipping. This is important because your vehicle must somehow get to this port of origin so that it can be shipped.

Some transport companies offer door-to-terminal pickup service, which means they will pick up your vehicle right at your home and get it to the shipping point. This is a service which must be paid for however, and the alternative would be for you to drive the vehicle to the shipping port yourself.

Brazilian Requirements

The Brazilian government will allow anyone to ship/import a vehicle into the country, but it also requires that only new cars be allowed into the country. The exception to this is a car that is thirty years old or more because it is considered to have classic or antique status. Another restriction is that all incoming vehicles must meet the country’s standards for safety and emission control. Your shipping company should be aware of these standards or will be able to contact the Ministry of Transport in Brazil to learn about them.

You will also need an import authorization permit for the vehicle, and written approval from the department of environmental affairs. These must be presented to the port city by yourself or your shipping agent, or the vehicle may sit in port for a while.

Other Requirements

As in the case of the destination country, your shipping agent will probably be familiar with the U.S. requirements for international shipping, but you should confirm this.

  • Documentation must be submitted to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency at least 72 hours before the vehicle is to be exported, although practically speaking you will want to allow more time than that, in the case of any glitches.
  • Ensure that your vehicle is eligible for international shipping, which means for instance that if there is a lien against it, you must have written approval from the lienholder to ship the vehicle out of the country. The exact laws governing eligibility are can be found in Title 19 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations.
  • You’ll need copies of your driver’s license, passport, and some proof of ownership to present to Brazilian Customs.

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Brazil

There is a lot that goes into the planning of an international transport especially when it is heavy equipment or oversized cargo that you’re trying to ship. That’s why there are many wonderful transport companies all over the nation just waiting to take your call. A1 Auto Transport is one of the most reputable shipping companies around. We have access to the highest quality shipping equipment, the latest transport technology, and help from trained and experienced transport specialists. We are confident we can help you carry out your heavy equipment’s transport to Brazil.

The limit to what can we ship is basically non-existent. We can ship any type of farm, mining, construction, industrial, or paving equipment. This includes but isn’t limited to:

  • Tractors
  • Backhoes
  • Forklifts
  • Skidders
  • Excavators
  • Pavers
  • Skidders
  • Loaders
  • Cranes
  • RVs and Motorhomes
  • Large Vehicles and Dump Trucks
  • Haulers and More…

No matter what type of heavy equipment or oversized cargo you have to ship from the U.S. to Brazil, we’re certain we can get the delivery completed through one of our four overseas shipping methods. In fact, we’re so sure that we even offer insurance coverage to every single one of our customers.

The Methods of Transport You May Have to Choose From

There are only four transport methods we have that can accommodate international heavy equipment and oversized cargo deliveries. Contigent on your shipping needs and the type of cargo you have, one or more of these methods may be an option for you. Our transport specialists will help you with your decisions when you call in to learn more and schedule your overseas transport. Nevertheless, if you’re curious as to what choices you may have, here is a little more information…

  • Flat Rack- Your cargo is fastened to a flat rack or large metal frame which is then carefully lifted onto the ship for its transport. The rack is lifted off the ship in the same manner.
  • Container Shipping- This is the priciest shipping method but it provides your cargo with the ultimate security during its travels. Your cargo must fit into a 40ft shipping container. You can have your heavy equipment diassembled to fit into the container (only if necessary) if you wish to take advantage of this method.
  • RoRo Shipping- This is the most inexpensive option. This open air transport service is only available to those with running vehicles and equipment since the cargo must roll onto and off of the ship using a ramp.
  • LoLo Shipping- This method is suggested to customers with broken equipment or vehicles as well as those that chose to crate their cargo. A crane operator will carefully lift the cargo onto and off of the ship.

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!
