Car Shipping Daegu

The fourth largest city in South Korea, Daegu is situated about 50 miles away from the coast. It is situated on the banks of the River Geumho. A hub of commercial and industrial activities, there are many reasons for people to move here. However, when you are looking to transport your vehicle from USA to Daegu, there are international legalities and import procedures that have to be followed.

That is why it is important to work with an experienced shipping service that understands the nuances of freight shipping vehicles to South Korea. At A1 Auto Transport Company, we have shipped hundreds of vehicles and understand the custom requirements. As English is not an official language nor commonly used, one of our local shipping agent will be there to assist you with the procedures or requirements after the vehicle reaches Daegu.

Eligibility to import vehicle to South Korea.

You need to be staying in Daegu for at least six months before you can get your personal vehicle imported from USA. Though you can import most brand of vehicles, Japanese cars are banned apart from larger vehicles that can seat 10 people are not eligible for import. Additionally, there are other regulations that you will need to adhere to before you discuss shipping details with A1 Auto Transport service. These include:

  • You must own the vehicle in USA for at least 3 months before you can import it to Daegu.
  • If you are importing it within 6 months of your long-term or permanent move, it is considered as part of the household items and there is no duty.

There is additional documentation that will be required to be submitted at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection at the time of export from U.S and the South Korean Customs will require when the vehicle reaches Daegu. The documentation includes:

  • Purchase invoice with details on the engine/chassis number, make, model and year.
  • Owner’s passport and license/Photo ID.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Insurance certificate.
  • Valid work permit.

Applicable custom duties and import taxes.

Irrespective of whether you have a new car or a used vehicle that you are importing, there are custom duties and taxes that need to be paid before you can get the delivery of the vehicle. Though the taxes are variable, the size of the engine is considered before you will be informed about the tax to be paid. Additionally, if you are importing the vehicle temporarily or it is not a part of the household goods, the vehicle will be put through different tests for noise and vibration examination, emissions and the type and model approvals by the Korea Automobile Test and Research Institute.

It is good to take the photographs of the vehicle from all angles before you ship it. This will ensure that if there is a rare chance that the vehicle has been damaged, you have proof. A1 Auto Transport service offers basic insurance on all shipped vehicles, but if you are shipping an expensive vehicle additional insurance coverage for collateral damage might be a good idea.

Freight shipping methods and cost.

There are two popular methods of shipping your vehicle to Daegu which are:

Ship Your Car Daegu
  • RORO: Better termed as Roll-on/Roll-Off, your vehicle is driven on board the freight cargo ship and secured in the bay. As you only pay for parking the vehicle, it is much less than container shipping or air transportation. However, due to being secured on an open deck, your vehicle is not protected from the climatic conditions and pilferage. That is why it is important to adhere to the regulations of only shipping a steam cleaned, empty car.
  • Enclosed Cargo Container: Your vehicle is put within a 20 feet or 40 feet container and that is why it is more expensive. However, it turns out to be extremely convenient for those looking to move to South Korea and have additional household goods to ship alongside the vehicle. The added layer of protection helps to minimize damage and theft during transit.

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!
