Car Shipping Guayaquil

Guayaquil is not only the largest city in Ecuador, but it also hosts the largest shipping port in the country making it one of the easiest places to have a car shipped into the country. Tourists travelling through Guayaquil often find the city so welcoming for business ventures and employment that they make the decision to stay as a resident. Guayaquil is situated on the west side of the Guayas River and on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. Once in the city, many find that having their own car to drive will make travel simple and very cost effective. You’ll need to hire a professional automobile transport company to ship your car from the United States to Guayaquil and you will have to follow strict customs regulations for exporting from the U.S. as well as importing to Ecuador. For U.S. Customs you will need to provide paperwork for export prior to shipping the car and will want to do so at least 2 weeks prior to shipment to ensure that all paperwork is accepted and approved. Failing to have the proper paperwork for customs can delay your car from shipment.

Professional Automobile Transport Services.

When you hire a professional automobile transporter to ship your car to Guayaquil, you will need to provide them with some information on your car as well as personal information on your identity. Documents that you will need to provide are:

The driver’s license and social security card will provide information that will legally identify you as the owner of the vehicle. The Power of Attorney statement simply gives the transporter the legal permission to transport your car within the United States to the exit port as well as overseas to Guayaquil.

When you contact the transport company they will need some precise information about your car. You’ll need to let them know the basic information like the make, model and year of manufacture. You will also need to let them know if your car has been altered in any way that would change the size or weight. Size and weight are very important factors for shipping as it will affect the type of transport carrier as well as the total cost of international shipping. If you will need to have your car picked up in the U.S. and delivered to the shipping port, the agent you speak to will be able to schedule convenient door to door pick-up and even delivery for you when the car reaches Guayaquil.

How Cars are transported to Guayaquil.

When you ship a car internationally from the United States to Guayaquil, or to any other city or country worldwide, you will have a choice of transport methods to choose from for shipping your car. To ship to Guayaquil there are primarily two ways to ship by sea making it very convenient for the type of car you have and for your own personal preferences. The two ways to ship a car to Guayaquil, Ecuador are:

RORO- RORO, short for roll-on roll-off is the quickest and most efficient way to have your car shipped internationally. Used by thousands of automobile shippers daily, this is the most popular way to ship a car anywhere in the world. Cars are easily driven (rolled) onto the transport vessel at the exit port, secured for travel, and then driven (rolled) off at the exit port when it reaches Guayaquil. Your car will need to be emptied of any personal items or paperwork, fuel must be at around ¼ tank, and the car needs to be cleaned prior to transport.

Container- Container, or enclosed shipping, is an excellent method to use for shipping classic, exotic and high value cars. Cars are driven into a large shipping container for transport and will be enclosed in a very secure, often climate controlled, shipping container for transport. While container shipping will cost a little more than RORO due to the expense of the container, it is widely used and very popular for shipping cars around the globe when a little extra protection may be necessary to help prevent damages to valuable investments.

Customs Requirements.

Every country around the world has specific customs requirements when importing a car. In Guayaquil you will need to follow the laws set forth by the Government of Ecuador when shipping your car. You will need some of the following documents for customs agents:

  • Driver’s License.
  • Passport.
  • Commercial Invoice or Bill of Sale.

There are also certain requirements for the age of the car including that the car must be within 5 years of the date of manufacture as of the date of importation. You must own the car clearly and there cannot be lien on the vehicle from a bank, dealership, individual or other entity. If there is a lien, you will need to obtain signed and notarized permission from the business or individual that holds the lien to transport the car to Ecuador. For further information on import requirements, local laws for Guayaquil, and economic information you can contact the Embassy of Ecuador in Washington, DC. For all the most up to date shipping information, the agent with the automobile transport company will be able to give you valuable information as well as resource information for documents you will need, customs regulations and all other information for shipping your car from the United States to Guayaquil.

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!
