Car Shipping Curitiba

Curitiba is the capital as well as the largest city in the state of Parana in Brazil. It is also the eight biggest among other cities in terms of population and the largest in the South Region of Brazil.

Procedures for import of vehicles

It is an important economic, cultural and political hub in the entire Latin America. If you are planning to move your vehicle to Brazil from USA or have to move to Curitiba, it is essential to stay updated about all aspects of the regulations.

If you have an older vehicle which is classic and it’s not functional, you might need a lift-on/lift-off transportation. You can use RORO transportation wherein only an empty vehicle can be moved. It is the cheapest method as you only pay for the space occupied by your vehicle on the ship’s deck. Another alternative for you would be to use container shipping which is going to get you a container of an appropriate size and it’s going to protect your vehicle during the entire process. However, it’s more expensive. You can also take advantage of door-to-terminal services which would pick up your vehicle at your doorstep and get it delivered to the destination port of your choice.

There is quite a lot of paperwork that you are going to need to submit to the U.S. Customs as well as to the Brazil customs. It’s important that you do that at least 72 hours in advance so that there are no unexpected happenings. This goes for both custom departments. Upon arrival, you are going to need to clear all of the pending payments if you want to get the clearance.

In order to successfully transport your vehicle, you will need to obtain an import authorization permit for your vehicle and have written approval from the department of environmental affairs. This paperwork will need to be presenting order for the vehicle import to be approved. A1 Auto Transport Service can be of assistance with this paperwork as well because they know how to obtain the forms and fill them out. Your vehicle will need to be cleaned both inside and out. Nothing can be left in the vehicle and all dirt and debris must be removed. If these rules are not followed, your vehicle will be quarantined, which can delay the delivery. Look your vehicle over and list or document any damages that you notice on your vehicle before it is placed on the ship. A1 Auto Transport Service agents will verify the list for you.

Specific regulations.

The Brazil Customs allows anyone to import a car as long as it’s either new or over 30 years of age as it’s considered a classic. What is more, the vehicle needs to meet the emission control criteria but your shipping agency should already be aware of these specifications and requirements. You need an authorization permit as well as a written approval issued by the department of environmental affairs which have to be presented in the port city. There are other regulations which would require you to:

  • Present the documents to the U.S Customs at least 72 hours in advance so they have enough time to review it.
  • Ensure that your vehicle is actually eligible for being shipped to Brazil. You can find the criteria in the Title 19 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations.
  • Get copies of your driver’s license, proof of ownership and passport.

A1 Auto Transport Service knows the rules and regulations for importing a vehicle so there are no hassles for you. They have put over twenty years into helping customers like you ship vehicles all around the world so their experience and expertise will not go unnoticed.

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!
