Ship Your Car To Or From Guam

Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?

  • Transporting a car to Guam from the U.S. will usually cost $3,000 to $7,000, with some price variance based on availability and fuel cost fluctuations.
  • Standard sized vehicles can often be transported in a shipping container, which is the cheapest method of transporting a car to the area.

Guam is an unincorporated territory of the United States which makes it easy to import a vehicle to this country. Guam is an island country that is located in the Pacific Ocean and it is situated to the east of the Philippines. Most cargo ships bound for Guam will dock at Apra Harbor. Guam’s currency is measured in United States Dollars (USDs).

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Guam

  1. Title and registration.
  2. Proof of insurance.
  3. Copy of driver’s license.
  4. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Form -3520-21, if required.
  5. Department of Transportation (DOT) Form HS-7.
  6. Customs 7501 Forms.
  7. OBL.
  8. Letter from the EPA granting permission, if foreign, or if the vehicle is older than 25 years old.
  9. An invoice, bill of sale, or statement of value that states the vehicle’s VIN, description, model, and year.

The biggest hurdle you will encounter when importing a vehicle to Guam is the rampant government regulations. Every car must meet the US motor vehicle safety standards, DOT, and EPA standards. If your car is older than 25 years, it must meet the EPA’s requirements. Non-US residents can import cars to Guam for up to 1 year, but they will need permission from the EPA. If necessary documentation is not available, the importer can be subject to fees that range from $300 to $1,000 USD

We will take care of all of the shipping forms and importation documentation. All you need to provide is the relevant information about your vehicle.

Shipping Methods

We offer various shipping methods to Guam. Listed below are two of the most popular choices:

  • Roll on, Roll off: The roll on, roll off method is one of the most popular. Your vehicle is driven onto the ship, securely held in place, delivered to the port of choice, and then driven off the ship. In order for this method to be viable, your vehicle must operable. If you elect to use this shipping method, you cannot store personal items in your vehicle.
  • Container Shipping: If you are looking to ship personal belongings with your vehicle, this may be the best shipping method for you. Your vehicle and personal belongings will be securely held in place and stored in a shipping container.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much will it cost me to ship a vehicle from the U.S. to Guam?

Short answer: the cost of shipping a car from the USA to Guam lies between $3,000 and $7,000, but it will vary in specific cases, i.e., from where exactly in the USA you're shipping from. Guam is an island country towards the east of the Philippines and has the USD as its currency.

Importing a vehicle to the country is pretty simple as there are ships headed there all the time. Shipping from Honolulu is comparatively cheaper than doing so from the mainland, but in either case, the lower estimate will be around $2,000.

For oversized vehicles and special orders, the costs will be higher.

How can I track my shipment?

Tracking your shipment should be no trouble for you with the advent of the internet and GPS tracking technology. A1 Auto Transport believes in incorporating state-of-the-art technology in the process; thus, you can check the progress simply with a tap on your phone.

This is made possible by GPS trackers and tracking software; this way, you can see your shipment in real-time.

You will also receive timely text updates on your phone, also calls, and you have the option to contact our staff whenever you feel like it, and we'll update you. In short, tracking your shipment is not an issue; you'll know it when your vehicle has been shipped; constant updates will ensure that you never stay out of the loop!

Ship Car To Guam

What are the shipping options for Guam residents?

There are two methods/options of shipping, the "roll-on, roll-off" option and the "container shipping" method.

The first one is the simpler of two and is only valid if you don't have any personal belongings inside the car (in case you're the one shipping it; it also applies vice versa) and if the car is operable. In this case, it is simply rolled on board, fastened safely, and then driven off-board upon arrival.

In the latter case, the car is placed inside a container, and there can be no personal belongings inside it, and it is shipped this way.

It costs more to get it inside a container, but certain situations demand as such.

Since Guam is such a small place, usually people prefer to have their vehicles delivered at the port, and they pick them up from there on their own, saving themselves the extra expense of door-to-door delivery. Thus door-to-port delivery is the more common and popular choice here.

But of course, both options are available to the customers.

What preparations do I need to make before I ship my vehicle?

Whether you're shipping from Guam or from anywhere else across the globe, there are a couple of things you need to do before you seal the deal. Firstly, the gas tank should be no more than ¼ full, i.e., less than a quarter of its full capacity.

The interior of the car must be completely clean, and you are responsible for removing all of your personal belongings from inside before you ship it. Please note that as with any other vehicle shipping company, A1 Auto Transport will not bear responsibility if your belongings are left inside the vehicle, so be extra careful here.

Is the shipping cost from the USA to Guam fixed?

No, not at all – the price of shipping a car is dependent on a couple of factors, and those are:

  • The details of the vehicle being shipped, i.e., the make and model.
  • Manufacturing batch/date of the car, i.e., how old is it, or how much it has been driven (the latter is a more accurate measure in some cases)?
  • The vehicle's current condition and its monetary value.
  • The distance needed to be covered for the delivery, i.e., which in this case will be shorter from Honolulu and longer from the mainland.
  • The shipping option chosen, i.e., "roll-on, roll-off" or "container shipping" – the latter is more expensive.
  • Taxes and duties applicable to the whole process on both ends.
  • Additional fees for insurance coverage, if there are any.
  • Cost covering the materials and equipment used to ship the vehicle.
  • The purpose stated for the entry of the car into Guam.

 

Is re-scheduling possible?

In most cases, yes, but only before the shipment has been dispatched. If you feel that the current shipping schedule is not okay for you, be sure to let us know as soon as possible, preferably a day or two before the shipping date.

This way, our staff at A1 Auto Transport will handle the matter timely and re-schedule as per your earliest convenience. But once all the shipment work is done and the carrier has been dispatched, nothing can be done anymore.

Timing is thus of the essence if you plan on delaying your shipment.

What is the cheapest way to deliver a car to Guam?

If you're tight on the budget, then you'd want to avoid over-spending on the shipment. As noted earlier, you have two options, container shipment and roll-on roll-off. The latter is also sometimes termed as open-air shipment for obvious reasons.

This is the cheaper option of the two, and the cost is minimal, considering that you're only paying for the transportation expenses, plus some minor charges (not including taxes and duties, which will apply in either case).

While exact cost estimates are hard to present, you will be saving a sum through this option.

 

Ship Car To Guam

Why is the open-air shipment option better?

If all that you need to do is to ship your car, then the open-air shipment is a preferable option, here's why:

  • It is significantly less expensive when compared to the alternative, container shipping.
  • The shipment method is highly reliable, and there are no risks involved either.
  • If you're planning on shipping multiple cars at once, it makes more sense to ship them via the open-air shipment option; car dealerships do this all the time.
  • The cars are covered by insurance protection, without any additional charges.

In short, for most situations, roll-on, roll-off (or open air shipment) is the preferable option.

Are there any additional expenses for shipping a car to Guam that I should know of?

Yes, when you're shipping a car, you will have to bear additional charges and dues besides the actual shipment costs. The taxes and duties vary from country to country. For Guam, you'll need to contact the Embassy of Guam to get an exact fix on the taxes and duties applicable in your specific situation.

Once you've paid the taxes, keep the record with you because you will need to present it before the concerned authorities, alongside other required documents.

What documents do I need to ship my vehicle to/from Guam?

Here's the document checklist for shipping a vehicle to Guam:

  • Title and vehicle registration
  • Documents proving insurance coverage
  • A photocopy of the driver's license
  • If required, the Form -3520-21 from EPA/Environmental Protection Agency
  • Form HS-7 from DOT/Department of Transportation
  • 7501 forms for the Customs Officials
  • OBL
  • Permission letter from EPA in case you are a non-resident or if the vehicle's age exceeds 25 years
  • A bill/invoice detailing the monetary value of the vehicle, its description, and other assorted details

If you have them all, then there should be no problem.

What if my documents are inaccurate or missing?

If you were missing some of the documents while shipping, things can get a bit problematic, the same is true if your details don't match up, i.e. there was some clerical error with the invoice, etc. This can cause your shipment to be put on hold, and the customs department may initiate an inspection as well.

Even if everything is in order, routine inspections are still possible.

But in the case of missing or inaccurate documents, the shipment will be passed through an inspection process. This will inevitably delay the shipment and also cost you a bit more than usual in the customs fees.

You'll have to pay an inflated sum ($300 to $1,000, on average) before the shipment is released.

Your best bet is to get a professional automobile shipment company such as A1 Auto Transport on board. We'll scrutinize the details to make sure that everything is in order and that you don't have to face any trouble whatsoever.

Why is shipping vehicles to/from Guam so complicated?

While the legal requirements for overseas shipping are meant to regulate the process, it is understandable why you might get frustrated with all the paperwork and the taxes. In the case of Guam, government regulations are the biggest hurdle.

Since all automobiles need to meet certain defined criteria in the USA, in terms of vehicle and environmental safety, as dictated by the Department of Transportation and the Environment Protection Agency (EPA), there will be some checks you'll have to clear.

Things can become especially problematic if your vehicle is older than 25 years in which case you'll need a special permission letter from the Environment Protection Agency before you can ship it.

Non-residents/foreigners will also need special permission from EPA before they can get their shipment, and even then, only for one year.

As a non-resident/foreigner, can I import a car from Guam?

Yes, non-US residents or foreigners can import vehicles from Guam, but for up to a year, and that too only once they've acquired permission from the Environment Protection Agency. The rest of the procedure is more or less the same.

Ship Car To Guam

Do I need to procure the services of a customs clearance broker for shipping vehicles to/from Guam?

If you don't fancy filling in the paperwork and managing the hassles of imports, you can take the burden off your shoulders and place it on those of a licensed professional called a customs clearance broker. The name says it all, the professional will see to it that your shipment gets through and will file in all the necessary paperwork to do so.

Remember, not anyone can be a broker, the individual must be licensed by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Now comes the second part of the question: do you need one?

You don't ever actually need customs brokers per se, but having them on board can save you from landing in a world of pain. It is highly recommended that you procure the services of one if you're importing from Guam to the U.S., but for the other way around, it is not necessary.

If I need my car delivered as soon as possible, how earlier in advance should I schedule the shipment?

If you need your vehicle delivered to your end at the earliest then there can be no room for delays. Once a vehicle reaches the port in the U.S., the shipping process can take around 20 days, and for cars going the other way around, i.e. from Guam to the U.S., it can be a full month.

Thus schedule your order with this timeframe in mind if you want your vehicle delivered to you as soon as possible. But of course, be sure that everything is in perfect order to avoid any issues, especially with the paperwork.

What happens if my shipment gets stuck at customs?

Customs can put shipments on hold for inspection just to make sure that the actual value of the object is the same as that has been stated on paper. In case of a car shipment, this would mean checking the details of the car as mentioned on the invoice and confirming the actual value of the vehicle as has been stated on the bill.

In some cases, the inspection is part of the regular operations procedure, and there is nothing you can do to speed it up. However, your shipment may get stuck if your documents were missing or inaccurate in which case the customs will follow through a protocol of their own, and you'll have to pay a clearing fee before your shipment gets across.

In other words, if the documentation is complete and accurate, and you've paid the taxes and dues to the fullest, you have nothing to worry about.

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!
