Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?

  • To ship a car to Chile from the United States will usually cost between $1,800 to $3,300, in addition to import taxes and marine insurance. 
  • The most cost-effective way to ship a car to the area is aboard a ship inside a transport container. For further savings, these containers can be split among parties to reduce the individual shipping costs.

Top Chilean Shipping Destinations

Other Types Of Vehicles We Transport To Chile

Chile is a country that is economically speaking, one of the most prosperous in South America, owing in part to its democratic and free system of government, and also to its geographically ideal positioning. Even though it is not wider than 200 miles at any point in the country, its coastline stretches for more than 2,700 miles bordering the Pacific Ocean, and this allows for many port cities that encourage world commerce.

A few of these ports are Arica, San Antonio, and Valparaiso, and they receive goods from most ports in the United States, so chances are wherever you’re located in the U.S. the port nearest you can ship vehicles to Chile. Depending on your location and the destination port in Chile, the ocean-going travel time is likely to take between two and three weeks.

Many of the details and requirements of international shipping/exporting will be handled by the transport company you contract with, but before all that happens you’ll need to decide on a few basics of the process. For instance, the price you are quoted will have several factors to it, one of which is how the vehicle will get to the departure point from the U.S. If you drive it to the port city yourself, it will be cheaper of course, but many transport companies will offer door-to-terminal service for which you will be billed.

Move Car Chile

Another important element of overall cost is the method by which your vehicle will be shipped/imported. It could be shipped/exported in its own container and lifted on and off the ship in port, or it could be transported by the Roll-on/Roll-off (RORO) method, which basically calls for it to be driven on and off the ship by making use of a ramp. RORO is usually significantly cheaper, but if you have an expensive vehicle, you may want the greater protection offered by container shipping.

General Information About Shipping To Chile

Even though many of the details of international shipping/importing will be handled by your transport company, you will need to prepare some paperwork yourself. You’ll need to have the year, make, and model of the vehicle documented as well as its VIN number, which is the unique serial number it was given at manufacture time. Along with this, you’ll need its bill of sale, original title, and your driver’s license and passport. These are needed to clear customs inspections at both ends of the journey.

You must be able to prove that your vehicle is eligible to be shipped internationally, which means if there is a lien of any kind on the vehicle, you must have written authorization from the lienholder stating their agreement. To check the exact requirements in this area, you should consult the Title 19 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations, which refers specifically to these requirements.

Prior to shipping, a certificate must be filed with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency. The legal requirement is to file within 72 hours of departure, but you will not want to cut things that close – it is highly advisable that you file long before that time, in case anything holds up processing. You will need this certificate in hand to clear U.S. customs at the departure port.

International Shipping Methods for Heavy Equipment and Oversized Cargo Transports

The type of cargo you’re shipping will determine which of the four international shipping methods are available to you. Our trained representatives will go over your options with you after you provide them with a few details, but if you’re curious as to what overseas transport methods we offer, here is a little information…

  • Container Shipping is the most secure overseas transport method since it protects your cargo within within metal walls and a ceiling. Your cargo, whatever it may be, must fit into a 40ft shipping container to use this method.
  • Flat Rack Shipping is open air service that includes securing your cargo to a metal frame before it is placed on the boat.
  • Roll On/Roll Off Shipping is the cheapest shipping option. Your large or heavy vehicle or piece of equipment must be driven or rolled onto and off of the ship.
  • Lift On/Lift Off Shipping is recommended for those with inoperable vehicles or crated cargo.

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!
