Exporting a vehicle overseas to any foreign country will present its obstacles. However, many people going to reside or stay a while in a country other than the U.S., will have a personal vehicle sent to the country in which they are going to. This will help them to travel more leisurely once there and to avoid any further language and currency barriers as well.
With the strict laws of North Korea, you may have to have your vehicle delivered to a port in a country nearby. Trying to have a vehicle shipped to North Korea might be too difficult for just anyone. Contacting the Embassy of North Korea will help you to become knowledgeable of what needs to be done in order to have a vehicle shipped. They will fill you in on all of the most current requirements for vehicle shipment.
What Are My Options for Vehicle Shipment?
There are a few ways to have a vehicle shipped over to Korea. Two of these shipment forms are by boat while one of them is by air. Air shipping tends to be way out of the price range for most people and is therefore, rarely ever used. Below, you will find descriptions of the other two vehicle shipment methods.
RO/RO shipping is a method of shipment that requires the vehicle to be completely empty with the exception of floor mats, a car jack and a spare tire at the time of its shipment. The vehicle is then driven onto and off of the ship. While this is the least expensive method of vehicle shipment, it is not accepted by all ports. Make sure that there is a port close enough to your new place of residency that accepts this form of shipment.
Container shipping is a method of shipment that will allow the automobile’s owner to ship other belongings over with the vehicle. The automobile and the container can both be filled with property. The items must be accepted by Korean Customs. Containers come in two sizes, so select the one that will suit your needs best. You may also want to consider sharing the container with another individual. This will lessen the cost of shipment.
