Ship Car To Cartagena
πŸ‡¨πŸ‡΄ Colombia, (CO)

Capital city of BolΓ­var the department in Colombia, Cartagena is the fifth biggest city in the country. It is an important center for tourism, petrochemicals, and maritime industry.

If you intend moving here or have already moved, not having a vehicle can be tiresome and that is why it helps to move your vehicle with you when you relocate from USA.

However, there are specific import laws and requirements that have to be considered. This includes being aware of the fact that only the most recent model of the vehicles of that particular company or new cars are allowed to be imported.Β  Although there are exceptions such as if you are importing a vintage car or antique vehicles but special permits are needed or that. If you have an older car, it might be best to buy a new one in Cartagena.

Another key aspect of safe shipping vehicles to Colombia is to engage the services of A1 Auto Transport as we understand all about shipping here and are conversant with the Custom regulations. As per the Customs Authority of Colombia, only new vehicles with no miles on the odometer can be imported on a permanent basis as per the Andean Automotive Agreement (1993). However, there are exceptions on vintage vehicles and diplomatic imports. You can ship your vehicle using Roll-on/Roll-Off method or select Container shipping.

Satisfied Customers

“I am meticulous when it comes to everything. At first, I was thinking of just driving all the way to Illinois from New Jersey. A friend recommended me to go to A1 Auto Transport and told me a lot of good things about them. I refused initially because I had filed a 4 day leave just to drive and visit my mother. But things did not go well. My boss asked me to cancel my leave because a very important client asked for an urgent meeting, and the manager could not attend to it. I was hopeless and took the risk of asking help from A1. The notice was short and I forgot I needed to inform them in advance. After a couple of hours, I received a call and they told me they found a way to book me with no extra fees. I am so thankful I got to attend to my work matters. I did not get to see my mother, but the vehicle and items inside it were in perfect condition as if it was me who took care of it. I owe you guys big time! I got one huge deal from our client.”

“I love A1 Auto Transport! Last year, we left Pennsylvania for Hawaii on Vacation. We’re pretty comfortable people, so we found having to take the bus everywhere a huge pain. We wanted to do something different and take our car with us this time around. After a quick web search, we chose A1 Auto Transport as our go to company, a very wise decision if I may say so. They arranged for a truck to come pickup my car and even took care of the sea transport part of the equation. We told Joe when we wanted to go on vacation and for how long, and he planned the transport around it. He had his men pickup the car and send it to the port, from where it travelled by boat to the island. He timed everything just right. We arrived on Monday, and picked up the car on Monday afternoon. It’s safe to say it was the best month of our lives. Thank you A1 for making things so much easier! We returned at the end of summer, and Joe once again pulled through for us and got the car back to Pennsylvania in one piece. It was real simple to use their service and they’re worth every dollar. Highly recommend!”

“Hey Michelle !!!! My car arrived yesterday (Saturday) at about noon. Hey lady, that'sΒ less than 48 hrs. You're the greatest....A1 is the greatest...I think I love you...Yahoo !!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. Sincerely, Rocky' GiordaniΒ (the guy with the red Dodge Charger)”

“Well guys, this is the 5th. vehicle I have moved with you!! This one was for my daughter and as usual it all went great. John took the extra time to keep an eye on the tracking for me which was appreciated.”

“You guys are fast!Β Bryan did a great job setting up the transfer...... He deserves congratulations...!!!! GreatΒ job.. Thanks again, Senator Tom Buford, Kentucky”
