Ship Car To La Plata
πŸ‡¦πŸ‡· Argentina, (AR)

La Plata is the capital of Buenos Aires, Argentina, as well as the Partido La Plata. It was supposed to be developed to serve as the provincial capital but Buenos Aires was then federalized in 1880 so plans changed.

However, it is an important and bustling city that is known for trade and commerce. If you are a returning citizen, student or working here, it will help to have your own vehicle here for commuting in and around the city with ease.

Temporary permit

The vehicles can be imported to Argentina for a temporary stay or for permanent importation. Therefore you will need a temporary entry permit or an importation permit. A temporary import is completed at the point of entry once you reach Argentina. This information is to help you with the process so you can avoid delays.

There are a few steps to take in order to reach the Argentinian consulate so you can start the process of bringing over your vehicle. It starts with the Law No 25,871 and the amendments and the Decree No. 616 issued on May 6, 2010, a foreigner with a permanent residency in Argentina and returning back to their country, foreigners that have a temporary visa to visit the country, and diplomats as well as military personnel.

For Permanent Residency

If you are a foreigner returning to Argentina, and you have a permanent reside visa, you can import one personal car or motorcycle that is used or two vehicles are allowed for each family. In order to ship a vehicle, you must be at least twenty-one years old and the vehicle must be registered to you for a minimum of three months before you arrived in Argentina. You must file and approved for permanent residency before your vehicle reaches the port in Argentina. If you are importing a new vehicle, there are separate regulations that must be adhered to. It's important to note that only certain new car models and makes are allowed in Argentina.

If a vehicle is valued at less than or as much as $15,000 USD or it has the equivalent in another currency can be exempt from import duties, taxes, or other charges. If a vehicle is more than $15,000 in value then the estimated costs are between 80 and 100 percent of the vehicle's value and that includes taxes and freight.

A vehicle you are importing cannot arrive in La Plata, Argentina more than three months before you arrive in the country and no later than six months after you arrive. Once you arrive here, the car can then be released after proper documentation is presented. Any vehicle that arrives before the owner will be held at customs.

Required Documentation for Importing

When you are ready to import your vehicle, you will need the following documents in order to complete the process. These documents include:

  • Proof of identity such as a passport with a visa or DNI.
  • Foreigners with permanent residence status in the country will need certification issued by the National Directorate of Migration.
  • Original purchase invoice of the vehicle or motorcycle.
  • Driving license.
  • Original registration documents.
  • Three original Ocean Bill of Lading in the vehicle owner's name.
  • Certificate of residence - for those returning to Argentina, you must have the certificate of residence from your last location in the other country for the two previous. You will also need to provide a certificate of residence that states you have lived in the country of origin for twelve months or more. You can get this certificate from the Argentinian Consulate in the place you resided before.
  • A pre-shipment inspection certificate.

All documentation that is issued must be certified as well as authenticated by the consulate with the jurisdiction in the country. Documents will need to be translated by a certified translator. Diplomats and military personnel can find the documents they need for import from the Argentinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

“If anyone’s looking for auto transport, I very much recommend A1 Auto Transport. Great team! Great company! I called them to get my Jeep to Vermont, and they pulled through on all levels. Joe, the one who answered my call, was knowledgeable, pleasant to speak to, and very professional. I took my time explaining my situation, and he did not interrupt. He answered my questions, laid out everything I needed to know, and gave me several options for my transportation. I chose to ship my car with a covered truck for extra safety. It was scheduled to arrive in a couple days and was supposed to get to its destination in around 4-5 days. Great job on sticking to the schedule! The driver was on time on both fronts. I’m really grateful. A1 Auto Transport is a very professional company with very competent people running it. I could not find a single fault with their methods.”

“I wish I’d known about A1 Auto Transport a year ago when my sister and her fam had to move to Alaska. They tried to get their cars transported, only to get ripped off by some other car relocation company that left her Cruze in a mess and charged her exorbitantly. You won’t run into any of those hassles with A1 Auto Transport, thank god. And the people who helped me all the way… I hope their whole team and their higher ups are all reading this review, so they can know how wonderful the service I got from them was. Very reliable people. They quoted me a reasonable price. And for such awesome customer service, I’d be glad to pay these guys more just for existing.”

“Tracey, I'd just like to say how happy I am with the way Cherie and Kim have helped me today. Very pleasant and professional members of your team. Regards Rich Pardo”

“Dear Mark, Thank you so much for your help in getting our classic car to us in record time. It was a bit unnerving at first as we bought the car on Ebay and then not knowing for sure where the car was being stored while waiting for delievery. We were assured that the car was being stored in at you facility out of the sun's damaging rays. We appreicate that. We were told that the car would be picked up on Aug 8th and we thought that was a bit longer than agreed upon however, the car was picked up on August 4th and delievered to us in Arkansas on the 9th. I might add it was transported in a wonderful fashion and your drivers were absolutley wonderful with the car. Thanks again. We would use your company again without a question. ”
