What do You Need to Know

  • Depending on the exporting company, your car will likely arrive into one of two major ports: Puerto Santo Tomas de Castilla or Puerto Barrios. If you want to check out either port online, there is an option to translate information about each into English. It is worth a bit of research in advance to know what to expect in getting your vehicle once it arrives in-country.
  • Opt for the marine insurance. Different than the traditional auto shipping insurance, this coverage will insure your car as it travels across the ocean to get to its destination. This may already be packaged into the cost; definitely worth investigating with your auto shipping carrier.
  • Chances are that you will need to go to Florida to get your vehicle over to Guatemala. Port Everglades is, by and large, the biggest port servicing this area of the world for auto shipping.
  • If you want to be uber-prepared before you go, it’s worth a call to the Guatemalan Embassy in Washington D.C. to check on specifics like the most up-to-date taxes and fees once your car has arrived in the country.
  • Sailings don’t happen every day, so you really need to plan ahead. Ships with vehicles going over to Guatemala only do so, on average, every 10 to 15 days.

Reach out for Help When Shipping Your Car to Guatemala from the USA

When you opt to ship a vehicle to a well-known and highly developed country, it can be challenging to know the rules. But when you are shipping to a smaller and less industrialized nation, the challenges can start to seem insurmountable. It is important to work with an auto shipping provider that not only knows the textbook rules but the cultural shifts as well. From the optimal port to which to ship to working with the locals to get your vehicle once it arrives, we can help with every step of the process.

Similar to European auto transport, Rolling On, Rolling Off remains the main method of shipping a vehicle to Guatemala. This is due to the cost efficiency and popularity of shipping out of Port Everglades, as well as a few other ports strategically situated around the Southeast.

The Finances Of Shipping A Vehicle To Guatemala – It Doesn’t Have To Break The Bank

Like any form of international shipping, there are taxes and fees incurred when shipping a car to Guatemala.

It is important to note that a departure from shipping to many other places is that the valuation method for what is owed in import duties and taxes is a combination of the cost, insurance, and freight of the vehicle. This means that depending on all of these factors, this is how you will determine the amount you will owe upon arrival.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Guatemala:

  1. Original commercial invoice.
  2. Title, registration & proof of ownership.
  3. Ocean bill of lading (OBL).
  4. Receipt of payment.
  5. Vehicle condition report.

Proper Documentation

You don’t want to be caught without the proper documentation for yourself, your vehicle and anything else you may be bringing with you into the country. Make sure you have the proper visas in hand upon your arrival as well as when you pick up your vehicle from the shipping company.

Your car’s age will matter if you want to visit any of the surrounding countries. For instance, you cannot ship into Honduras, with the idea of driving over the border and into Guatemala, in a vehicle that is more than 10 years old. This applies for trucks as well, only the age is extended to 13 years old. Guatemala, however, has no current age restrictions on vehicles being shipped into the country.

Additional needs include a clear and free title and bill of sale for the vehicle, if applicable.

Check the Guatemalan Customs website in order to determine what items you need to declare, particularly when shipping your vehicle into the country. You might find that something so simple as a package left on your backseat can cause you quite a bit of trouble if you don’t declare it properly.

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Guatemala

Over the years A-1 Auto Transport has demonstrated a ability to carry virtually anything to and from Guatemala including, construction materials, large vehicles, cranes, bulldozers, industrial equipment, RVs, campers, trailers, forklifts, heavy machinery, buses and pontoon boats.  A-1 will work with you on transporting one-time cargo or large projects, that require exact coordination according to a defined time schedule.  The most determinant factors that will affect the cost of shipping to Guatemala is the size and weight of your cargo.

Every country handles imports differently and what they require varies from country to country.  Handling charges are also tabulated based on whether your cargo arrives in a container, if it’s operable or if it requires a flat rack. There are several international shipping options available through A-1 Auto Transport and each one is specific to your type of heavy equipment and/or oversized cargo.

Shipping Options to Guatemala with A-1

  • Lift On/Lift Off - is also referred to as LoLo shipping is a very common form of transport for items that are inoperable. This method safely lifts your oversized cargo using a crane to put it on and take it off of the ship once it arrives at port.  Some items that get transported by this method are large crated equipment, boats, and stationary machinery

  • Roll On/Roll Off is also referred to as RoRo shipping. This is the most inexpensive way to transport your heavy equipment or oversized cargo overseas.  As the name implies, it is a type of shipping made for operable vehicles that can roll up the ship’s ramp and roll off once in Guatemala.  Be mindful of height restrictions when shipping this way
  • Flat Rack shipping is a type of international transport that is commonly used due to how adaptable flat racks are . Your heavy cargo will be secured to a flat rack or metal frame and then placed on the back of the ship. In case of inclement weather, your cargo may be protected with shrink wrap.
  • Container shipping isn’t available for most oversized cargo unless it can fit into a 40ft shipping container. Heavy equipment may also be less than ideal depending on the weight of your cargo and the limits of the shipping container. This is the most expensive and secure form of shipping we have available and it will protect your cargo from outdoor elements and criminal activity.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
