Car Shipping Manta

Shipping your personal car to Manta when you need to relocate is the sensible thing to do. Mantas is a very popular city in Ecuador for tourist traffic as well as business. With the largest seaport in all of Ecuador as well as a large cargo airport, Manta is very busy for exporting as well as importing goods and personal belongings of new residents. The beaches in Manta are a powerhouse of waves and surfers from around the world flock to the beaches of El Murcielago, Santa Lorenzo, Barbasquillo and Santa Marianita in Manta every day of the year. Driving your own personal car, whether you are a permanent resident or visiting on a temporary basis for vacation or work, will make travel throughout Manta very easily done as well as money saving due to not having to pay for hired cars or slow moving public transportation.

How to Move your Car to Manta

Moving a car to Manta requires the services of a professional automobile transport company that is experienced with international automobile shipping. The company will need some information from you prior to giving you a total price quote. That information includes the make, model and year of your car. If you will need to have the car picked up in the U.S. and delivered to the shipping port they will add that into the quote along with the type of transport that will be used during shipment. Most companies provide shipping insurance but you will want to check the amount to make sure it is enough to cover your car value in case of damage. If not, you may want to check with an outside insurance provider to add extra damage coverage during transport.

Types of Transport

To ship a motor vehicle to Manda, Ecuador you will need to let the auto transport agent know if you prefer open or enclosed transport and if you want to ship by sea or by air. Since Manda lays on the coast, most people will use sea transport to relocate their automobile to Manda. There are two ways to ship by sea and those ways are:

RORO- RORO is an open method of automobile transport, meaning that automobiles are loaded onto an open freight liner that can carry several hundred motor vehicles at one time. RORO is used by thousands of vehicle owners every day of the year as it is the least expensive as well as the quickest way to have a car transported overseas. Your agent will discuss with you how to prepare your car for transport via RORO carrier, but you will primarily need to empty the car of all personal items and have it thoroughly cleaned inside and out. Since part of the pricing for shipping a car falls under the fuel cost, it is also advisable to make sure your own vehicle has ¼ tank or less of fuel in the tank as excess fuel will add weight to the load and will cost more to haul. Your auto agent will discuss all of the details about how to prepare your car for transport if you choose to use RORO.

Container- Shipping in a shipping container is similar to RORO shipping as cars are driven into large containers and then loaded aboard a ship. Containers are generally used to transport very valuable motor vehicles and personal items. Many shipping containers offer climate controlled interiors as well as padding for extra protection during transport. If you’re completely relocating they are excellent for moving all of your household items along with the car. The price will be larger than shipping with RORO due to the container fee, but it is very convenient when you have items to move with the car and when you have a classic or luxury car.

Air Cargo- Shipping by air can be very expensive and most people prefer to ship by sea due to the cost. It is often preferred when a car is needed very fast for work or school or when someone has personal material that needs to be delivered fast.


There are always customs regulations to abide by when moving to another country whether you are moving a motor vehicle or just your personal belongings. You will need to contact U.S. Customs and provide paperwork to them with the information on your automobile and your travel plans. The paperwork needs to be in at least one week prior to your planned shipping date to ensure that it is accepted and cleared. You will also need to make sure you have the proper paperwork for customs in Ecuador including:

  • Passport.
  • Original Bill of Sale or Commercial Invoice of Vehicle.
  • Driver’s License.
  • Vehicle Title.

Your car must be within 5 years of age and you are only allowed to import one car. Customs will conduct a physical inspection to make sure the car is up to Ecuador standards for emissions, brakes and headlights.

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!
