Legal requirements and documentation

As per the stipulations in the South Korean law, the owner of the car has to plan to stay in the country for at least 6 months. Nevertheless, Japanese cars are not allowed. There is also a limitation regarding the seat places – if the vehicle can seat more than 10 people it’s not allowed in. Other requirements are as such:

  • The car should be property of the owner for at least 3 months prior to shipping.
  • The vehicle is considered as a household good if it is imported in the first 6 months of the owner’s arriving to Incheon.
  • If considered household goods the shipment is free of taxes.

There are also some other details that you need to consider:

  • All details regarding the make, the year, model and the deed of registration.
  • The purchase proof as well as the cost bills.
  • The owner’s passport.
  • Vehicle’s insurance.
  • Declaration from customs.
  • Work permit valid for at least one year.

Vital vehicle inspections

It is vital that the vehicle has to get custom clearance and the Korean Customs Service charges duty as well as tax on new cars as well as on used ones. The payable duty on new cars is determined based on the engine’s size. If the car isn’t considered as a household good there are other procedures that have to be gone through such as:

  • Noise and vibration inspection.
  • Inspection for emissions.
  • Korea Automobile Test and Research Institute is going to carry out approvals of the model and type.

There are other documents that you would need to submit in order to receive custom clearance such as:

  • Purchase proof.
  • Registration deed and documents.
  • Insurance policy.
  • Auto Shipping methods.

Freight shipping methods

If you want to spare some money throughout the entire process, it is recommended that you drive your vehicle to the port yourself. Overseas shipping has two main methods which are:

  • Container Shipping: Using this method entails that your vehicle is shipped within a container which is placed on a carrier ship traveling from the US to the receiving port. This method is a bit more expensive than Ro-Ro Shipping but you are going to get more value if you have to ship other personal items besides your car. Containers are available in different sizes in 20ft or in 40ft. Some people may choose to share a container with other person if the latter is shipping to the same port. However, this may delay the entire process due to different customs inspections.
  • Ro-Ro Shipping is the second and most used method of shipping to the country of South Korea. With this method the vehicle is driven on to the ramp of the carrier ship at the point of acceptance and is going to travel towards the receiver’s end. Ro-Ro shipping is the safest way because the vehicle is fastened to the ramp. It is also a lot cheaper.

In order to document the condition of the car you should take images prior to shipping it. You can compare these after you receive it in order to see if the condition is proper. The company offers insurance that would additionally cover damages. You must make sure that you have filled out all the required paperwork prior to the shipping. Once you have done this you would need to hire the company for the shipping process. In order to find out different specifics you can contact the Embassy of Republic of Korea or the U.S Customs that would direct you to acquire and fill out the proper paperwork.

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!
