Situated on the Pearl River, Guangzhou is the capital of the Guangdong province of China. It’s the province’s largest city, and one of the nation’s 5 National Central Cities. Guangzhou is an important transportation center and major trading port, with links to numerous railways and roads extending throughout the country.

Guangzhou Customs Policy and Regulations.

Note these important points regarding vehicle importation into China. Take a look over the customs laws for full details.

  • Only left-hand drive vehicles are admissible into the country.
  • Vehicles that operate on diesel (with the exception of jeeps) are similarly banned in China.
  • Used vehicles are no longer permitted to be imported for self-use, as of July 2010.
  • The custom taxes in China follow a tiered tariff. Rates range from 25 to 47 percent, and are calculated based on the engine cubic capacity of the particular vehicle. Foreign experts, as well as foreign companies established in China, may be able to import a car into the country tax-free.
Mandated Set of Documents.

Chinese customs rules dictate that you’ll need to actually be onsite in China to receive your car. Certain documents must be presented to the custom officials before the car is allowed entry into Guangzhou. Before you ship, ensure you have:

  • Proof of age of the car.
  • Proof of the purchase value of the car.
  • Written application and an import cargo declaration.

These are non-negotiable – expect the vehicle to be turned away if any of these documents are missing.


Consider which method of shipping best suits your needs:

  • Container shipping – In this method of shipping, the car is loaded in a container. It is then strapped securely to prevent any movement. The container can either be 20 foot or 40 foot depending on your preference. These containers are then loaded onto large ships or carriers. The car is unloaded in a similar manner at the destination.
  • Roll-on/Roll-off shipping – Ro/Ro shipping, just as the name suggests, is when the car is directly loaded (or rolled) onto the ship or other carrier. It is then secured in place using straps to prevent movement. At the destination, the car is then unloaded in the same fashion.

You can also choose between pick-up and delivery options. In door-to-door shipping, your car can be brought right from your doorstep to the location of your choosing in Guangzhou. A cheaper option is terminal-to-terminal shipping, wherein you’ll bring the car to a port of departure yourself and pick it up onsite in China.

Safety Checks.

Certain checks and preparations should be made before shipping:

  • Alarms must be disabled to prevent drain on the car’s battery.
  • The fuel tank should be approximately 25 percent full – this will help shippers to load and unload the car without adding excessive weight.
  • Personal belongings must be taken out of the car. The only items permitted inside are the jack and the spare tires.
  • The inside and outside of the car must be clean and ready for inspection.
  • Detachable accessories must be taken down; if the antenna is not removable, it should be lowered.
  • Double-check the foot and e-brakes to make certain that they are properly functioning.

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!
