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 residence 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.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To North Korea

  1. Commercial invoice
  2. Certificate of origin

  4. Packing list
  5. Bill of lading
  6. Proof of marine insurance

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To North Korea

A1 Auto Transport has been helping their customers ship heavy equipment and oversized cargo overseas for longer than 25 years. The shipping process demands particular consideration to detail, an understanding of foreign import laws, and access to the latest and greatest in shipping technology and equipment. The risks involved in an international delivery are far too high without the help of professional transporters.

Conditional upon the weight, size and other physical details of your cargo, we have assorted overseas shipping methods for you to choose between. However, we can ship nearly any type of cargo. Here is a list of examples of oversized cargo and heavy equipment we’re able to have delivered to North Korea or any other country…

  • Farm Equipment
  • Industrial Equipment
  • Mining Equipment
  • Construction Equipment
  • Asphalt Pavers
  • Backhoes
  • Forklifts
  • Dump Trucks
  • Large Trucks or Heavy Vehicles
  • Cranes
  • Engineering Equipment
  • Agricultural Equipment and more…

What Kinds of International Transport Services Are Offered at A1?

As previously stated, the type of cargo you’re transporting will determine which transport methods are available to you. When you call in to speak with a representative, they’ll let you know of your options after you fill them in on the details of your cargo but if you would like to know what all of our overseas shipping options are, here is a list as well as a little information about them…

  • Flat Rack Shipping
  • Roll On/Roll Off Shipping
  • Lift On/Lift Off Shipping
  • Container Shipping

The RoRo, LoLo and flat rack transport methods that we offer are all open air services. RoRo is the cheapest option overall but your heavy equipment or large vehicle must have the ability to drive onto and off of the ship with the help of a ramp. LoLo shipping is for inoperable vehicles and crated equipment that need lifted onto the boat, while flat rack is a more secure open air service. Container shipping is the only enclosed service but it is only available to those with heavy equipment small enough to fit into a 40ft container.

Satisfied Customers

“I am meticulous when it comes to everything. At first, I was thinking of just driving all the way to Illinois from New Jersey. A friend recommended me to go to A1 Auto Transport and told me a lot of good things about them. I refused initially because I had filed a 4 day leave just to drive and visit my mother. But things did not go well. My boss asked me to cancel my leave because a very important client asked for an urgent meeting, and the manager could not attend to it. I was hopeless and took the risk of asking help from A1. The notice was short and I forgot I needed to inform them in advance. After a couple of hours, I received a call and they told me they found a way to book me with no extra fees. I am so thankful I got to attend to my work matters. I did not get to see my mother, but the vehicle and items inside it were in perfect condition as if it was me who took care of it. I owe you guys big time! I got one huge deal from our client.”

“The plan was to ship my car from California to Utah. I went through nearly 20 quotes after using an auto shipping site which linked to a bunch of brokers. Finally, I found A1 Auto Transport, a company with its own trucks with great reviews. I was sold. Joe was very competent, gave off the impression he’d done this a million times, and it really showed throughout the transport. He listened to my request carefully, offered me several options, stayed in touch during the transport, and made sure I was happy with everything. Overall, a great company which I would definitely recommend to others!”

“I’m so glad I met you Joe!! A truly fortunate experience. Having to transport a car to Minnesota, I was stunned to see the company, who was supposed to take care of it, just vanish. I couldn’t reach them anymore, like they went bankrupt overnight. However, I was lucky enough to not pay anything, so I simply researched some more until I found A1 Auto Transport. Joe answered my call the first time and we soon agreed on a date and a quote. Unfortunately, I got caught up in work and forgot about it. The order was not confirmed, so Joe must’ve thought I changed my mind. I called him the next day and arranged for a new date. This time, I made a note on my phone and it went well. I replied to his email this time, and the driver arrived at a parking lot down the street on time, as promised. The driver was nice enough to not mention my previous mistake. He delivered my car in just 3 days. Upon careful inspection, there were no scratches or damage done to it during transport. Joe was there along with the driver and they both waited patiently until I was satisfied. Thanks!”

“A1 Auto is kind of like your favourite mom and pop pizza parlour, the one you can’t get enough of despite all the new, expensive avant-garde pizza shops that have mushroomed conspicuously across the entire neighbourhood and seem to have taken over the whole world...but not you. Because you value quality and genuine customer service, and know this business understands and works doubly hard to give you your money’s worth. I’ve been using A1 Auto Transport whenever I left California for business: they may not be the cheapest car transporters around, but the sheer professionalism, dedication, and heart they put into their work is just amazing and worth my every dime. I’m probably one of the most sceptical people you would ever meet. I’m rarely convinced when bombarded with dubious, self-congratulating ads of companies that look like they’ve spent tons of money on marketing materials just to lure your average guy in. A1 Auto Transport is the complete opposite of these companies. My car always arrived promptly on schedule, never with a hint of scratch or dirt or damage, and they keep me updated every step of the process. When you’ve found a company whose genuine care for their customers comes naturally, you stand by them no matter what. It’s the most logical thing to do.”

“A1 Auto Transport helped me move a vehicle to Iowa from Houston. I was a bit nervous, no knowing much about such services. Thanks to Joe, I was able to clear the fog a little. He answered all my questions and explained everything in a way that left no room for interpretation. The details were straightforward. I picked Sunday as the pickup date, since I wasn’t at work, and they accommodated me. The truck arrived an hour early, yet the driver patiently waited for me to arrive. He thoroughly checked my car for scratches or anything that might affect the transport then drove it onto the truck. I was given a 2 day time window during which the car was supposed to arrive in, and it got to Iowa in the evening of the first day. The trip didn’t damage it at all. Next time a friend wants to move, I’ll surely recommend A1 Auto Transport.”
