Requirements for shipping

There are many documents and paperwork that has to be submitted at the US port and at the Venezuelan port. The main documents that you need include:

  • Ownership proof
  • Copy of passport
  • Original Four Lading Bill Forms
  • RIF certificate
  • Original certificate in the owner's name
  • Purchase invoice

This should include the location, date and the original purchase price. You may also enjoy duty-free shipping provided:

  • You are Venezuelan citizen or have been living abroad for one-year minimum
  • All the car documents contains your name
  • You are the owner of the car for the last 11 months minimum
  • Shipping involves single car of value no higher than $20,000

When it comes to import of used vehicles, only Venezuelans can do this. As a foreign citizen, you will be allowed to import new vehicles only. In case of used car, you will have to pay 1% CIF value irrespective of the duty-free eligibility. Basically, shipping to Maracaibo is quite easy and you can choose any one of the two available shipping methods. The Roll-On/ Roll Off method of shipping involves your car getting on the ship and going down using its own wheels. Here, it will remain chained to the deck during the course of the journey. You will need to be there at the Venezuelan port when it arrives. In case you are unable to do this, you may authorize one of our shipping agents to be there on your behalf.

In case of RO-RO method, you should know that it is a time consuming proposition with little punctuality regarding arrival. However, it is cheaper as you only pay for the space that is used to park your car on the deck. You cannot keep any personal items in the car and have to remove the air conditioning gas for safety. Only quarter tank of fuel can be left for driving up and down the ramp.

The other one is the container shipping method. This is chosen in case of sports vehicles or luxury cars mostly. Your car will remain inside a 20 feet or 40 feet container on the ship. This is comparatively expensive than the other method but you can be sure of getting the car and goods safely. You not only are assured of safe arrival but also may bring other personal goods inside the container.

It is essential that all verified documents pertaining to the ownership of the vehicle and insurance reach the Venezuelan Customs at least 5 days before your vehicle arrives otherwise the penalty is high.

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!
