Car Shipping Gwangju 

The sixth biggest city in South Korea, Gwangju is directly under the rule of the central government as it is a designated metro city.  If you are moving here to study or for work, you will probably want to bring your vehicle with you.

The first thing you will need to do is to hire a shipping company that will be in charge of overseeing this task. An international shipper will be in charge of making arrangements for shipping, make sure all requirements are met, and all rules and regulations are adhered to.

Choosing the shipping methods.

It's very important that you choose the right shipping company to oversee this project for you. The right shipper will make sure that the transition goes smoothly and do whatever it takes in order to make this transition as simple as possible with no delay. Shipping agents, such as A1 Auto Transport is a great way to get this done in no time, while following all the rules and regulations.

There will be some questions that your shipper will need to ask in order to clarify your intent and to avoid delays. For example, they will need to know how you plan to get your vehicle to the U.S port. The port that you choose will depend on where you are currently living. A1 Auto Transport will most likely be able to offer you the door-to-port service which means that they will be able to come to your home or office and pick up your vehicle and drive it to the port for you. While this is an additional cost, it will save you time.

You will have two different shipping options when you ship to Gwangju. You can choose the Roll On/Roll-Off method and then there is the container shipping. With the Roll On/Roll Off method, your vehicle will be driven up on the deck of the ship using its own engine and then parked in a bay where it will stay during the transport. With container shipping, you will load the container up at the port with your vehicle and any additional items you want to transport. The container will then be lifted up onto the deck of the ship by way of crane. While your items are in a container, they are also being protected by the harsh weather during transit. The RO/RO method doesn't offer any protection from the weather.

Considerations when auto shipping.

Before your ship leaves your hands, take detailed pictures of it and carry documentation of ownership with you in order for things to go smoothly. That way, you have something to compare its current condition with the condition of your vehicle before it was shipped.

You may want to choose to have additional shipping insurance even if the company you hire has its own. This is always a good idea, if your vehicle is an expensive one.

Rules and Regulations for Shipping.

Before your vehicle leaves the port in the U.S, you will need to check with the U.S Customs and Borders Protection Agency to make sure that you have everything you need; such as a clear title, driver's license, and a clear title. You will also need to pay taxes and duty for all transportation costs as per the requirements of the South Korean Customs Department.

You will also need to provide a bill of sale that has your name on it as well as the original title that shows no one having a lien against your vehicle. If you do have a lien on your car, you will need to pick up a notarized document stating that you have permission from the lienholder to take that vehicle out of the country. The shipping service you choose will need to have a copy of this information before leaving the port with your vehicle. Your vehicle cannot be sold for a period of three years once it reaches Gwangju, Korea. To know the latest update on the import duties and regulations, contact the Embassy of South Korea.

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!
