Ship Car To La Plata

🇦🇷 Argentina, (AR)

Ship Car To La Plata
🇦🇷 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.

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!
