Hiring an Automobile Transport Company.

Hiring a professional automobile transport company is generally a simple thing to do. Once you contact the company they’ll ask for some information about the type of car you have and will gather some necessary documents for shipping the car. Some of the documents will include:

  • Social Security Number (Card).
  • Valid Driver’s License.
  • Power of Attorney.
  • Motor Vehicle Title/Registration

Most of the paperwork will be used to verify your identity and car ownership. The Power of Attorney will be used to give the company access to transport your car without you being physically present. The agent you work with from the transport company will provide you with all details that you will need to ship your car including the regulations you need to know for customs both for U.S. Customs as well as customs in Ecuador, international shipping laws, methods of transport and the total price to ship a car to Cuenca. If your car will need special care during transport they will set that up for you. They will also be able to assist you with the method of transport as well as convenient door to door shipping and delivery.

How to Ship to Cuenca.

It would be great if a car could be driven to any location in the world, but unfortunately that is not possible and you will need to determine the type of transport that will move your car overseas to Cuenca. You can choose from travel by sea, which is the most preferred way to ship internationally, or travel by air which is also widely used yet not as frequently as sea shipping. The ways to ship a car from the United States to Cuenca are:

RORO- RORO is also known as Roll/On Roll/Off transport and it is the most preferred way to ship a car overseas. RORO is most preferred for many reasons, the top being that it is the fastest route by sea to have a car shipped, and it is also the lowest cost transport available for motor vehicles. RORO is a type of open transport, meaning that motor vehicles are driven onto an open shipping vessel and several hundred can be transported at the same time. Vehicles on RORO ships must be emptied of all personal items, including paperwork, when being transported.

Containerized- Shipping a car in a shipping container is preferred by owners of luxury, classic and antique automobiles. When you need to have extra protection during shipment, using a container is well advised. Cars are loaded into secure shipping containers for transport. When using containerized shipping, personal items may also be shipped at the same time, thus making it very convenient for a complete relocation to Cuenca from the United States.

Air Cargo- Air freight is not used as often as shipping by sea due to the higher cost, but it is very convenient when you need to have your car delivered very rapidly. You can also ship personal items at the same time as the car ships when you use air cargo to transport the car.

The method of shipping that you choose will be figured into the total final shipping price quote. Your international shipping insurance will also be included in the quote and you will need to discuss the amounts available for damage coverage with the transport agent.

Customs in Cuenca.

Customs regulations in Cuenca, Ecuador are not quite as severe as in many other countries, but you will have to abide by them when shipping your car for import. You can gain valuable information on residency permits, automobile import rules and even housing location and employment in Cuenca by contacting the Embassy of Ecuador in Washington, DC. Required documents for car import include, but are not limited to:

  • Driver’s License.
  • ‘Passport.
  • Original Sales or Commercial Invoice.
  • Motor Vehicle Title and Registration.
  • ‘Valid Automobile Insurance Certificate.

Your car must be no older than 5 years at the time of import and you are allowed to import one personal car per year, providing that you have exported the first car prior to a new import. You will need to speak to Ecuador customs prior to shipping the car to ensure that emissions and other vehicle aspects are up to date with the current motor vehicle regulations in Cuenca. If you are missing paperwork or your car is not up to inspection status, the import can be delayed or denied by customs officials.

For more information on shipping a car overseas, you can contact the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) for regulations and overseas transport data.

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!
