Lambare is a city which is located in the Central Department of Paraguay. Exporting a vehicle there could be a bit tricky because it is a landlocked country, which means that there are no coastlines and respectively ports. This is why no vehicles can be shipped directly to the Lambare. Instead, they have to be shipped to another destination and picked up by a truck to be carried to Paraguay.
It is also to arrange river transportation to Paraguay since it has some ports on the River of Paraguay and a large port on the Parana River. As your shipper, A1 Auto Transport service, we can handle the further arrangements after the vehicle reaches the designated port. On the side of the U.S. you would need to make sure that your vehicle is driven towards the port of departure or you can have A1 Auto Transport service pick it up for you from your home. It is going to be cheaper if you drive it yourself.
The port is going to depend on your location in the U.S. since there are a lot of ocean-going ports. You are going to have to choose a port after we discuss your requirements.
The two main methods for shipping a vehicle overseas are Roll-on/Roll-off (RORO) and container shipping. The latter uses 20ft or 40ft containers to store your vehicle within. This provides protection from the elements and from other potential threats. It is more expensive but you would be able to share a container with another person to reduce the cost.
RORO shipping on the other hand would leave your car exposed during the trip. Your car is going to be driven on the deck and fastened securely. However, you would have to have ¼ tank of gas and the vehicle has to be drivable. Nothing should be stored inside the vehicle, apart from the jack, spare tire and set of keys in the glove box.
There are only few restrictions on entering the country as of now so there shouldn’t be any problems with the Customs. You are going to have port duty at the destination port and it is going to depend on the city of destination.
Prior to leaving the States you are going to have to get clearance from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency. They are going to demand proof of ownership, bill of sale which states the name of the purchase and it should be your name. You would also have to provide clear title without liens, or in the last case you would have to have a written approval from the holder of the lien.
In order to avoid problems make sure to contact the U.S. Customs prior to the process in order to see if there are any changes in the regulations. You can also get information and assistance from the Paraguayan Embassy in United States.
