Working with Professional Shipping Company
You need to ensure that the shipper that you choose has relevant experience shipping to Argentina in particular. And we have been shipping to South America for years. Once you’ve made that choice, you are going to need to decide which departure port you are going to use in the US and you need to ensure that your shipper works with it.
After you are through with all this, you need to determine whether you are driving your car to the port or you are choosing a door-to-door transport. The latter is going to cost you a few additional dollars but it’s very convenient and rather time-saving. At A1 Auto Transport service, we offer a range of services including pick and drop services.
Learn more about shipping to Argentina.
There are two main shipping options in front of you – Roll-on/Roll-off (RORO) and containerized shipping. The latter is pretty much what it sounds like – you get a dedicated 20ft or 40ft container to yourself and you ship your vehicle inside it. It is more expensive but it’s also a lot more secure and protective. The average transportation process of a vehicle from the USA to Argentina is going to be between $2000 and $4000. It is important to note that Argentina has recently increased the import taxes that it has on vehicles which needs to be taken into proper account when figuring out the overall cost.
The other option means that you will get your car on a shipping deck on its own wheels and it’s getting shipped as it is. You need to make sure that you clean it up thoroughly and that you leave no more than ¼ of a gas tank full.
Required Shipping Documentation
It’s important to contact the U.S. Customs so that you let them know about your intention to ship your vehicle. There are some documents that you will have to prepare for them as well. If you are leasing the car, make sure to get a permit from the leaseholder.
- Driver’s License
- Original Registration
- Residency certificate
- Shipment inspection certificate
- Valid Visa
- Purchas invoice
How much you pay will be determined by several factors which you can find more about at the Embassy of Argentina located in the United States. When you work with A1 Auto Transport service, we’ll make the process simpler for you as we understand the rules and regulations of Argentina Customs department.
