Car Shipping Portoviejo

Portoviejo is a very important commercial area of Ecuador as well as a junction for travelers heading to and from the cities of Guayaquil and Quito.  Sitting less than 20 miles from the Pacific Coast as well as having its own airport makes it easy to have your car shipped to the city. Agriculture has been a thriving business for many years in Portoviejo, and recently many other businesses including large shopping malls have been quite industrious as well. The roadways are usually very busy, and while there is public transportation, nothing can compare to having your own car to drive when you need to go somewhere. Roadways in Portoviejo were for many years filled with potholes that made travel difficult. In recent years, the roadways have been updated and repaired so travel should flow smoothly. You will want to drive carefully in Portoviejo though due to the lack of posted road signs. To have your car shipped to Portoviejo you will need to hire a reputable automobile transporter to assist you with the relocation.

Professional Transport Company.

A professional automobile transport company like A-1 Auto Transport will be able to handle all of your international automobile shipping needs quickly and efficiently. To get a shipping price quote you will need to give the representative that you speak to some information about your vehicle such as the make, model and year. They will also need to know if you have altered the car in any way that could affect the size or weight. The representative will discuss damage insurance coverage and you will need to decide on the amount necessary for your car. They will also explain the various ways that you can ship the car and will let you know which way will be best for your car as well as your shipping budget.

How to Ship a Car Overseas.

When you need to have your car shipped from the United States to Portoviejo you will need to use a shipping carrier. Most prefer to ship their automobiles by sea carriers as the price is generally affordable and the process is easily done. There are two ways to have your car shipped by sea to Ecuador.

ROROShipping- RORO is a type of open shipping, similar to the methods you may see in the trucking industry on the interstates around the nation. Cars, trucks, vans, SUV’s and other motor vehicles are driven onto a RORO vessel, secured for transport overseas, and then driven off the vessel at the entry port in Ecuador. RORO is short for Roll-On Roll-Off and is the most common way to ship a car overseas. It is the fastest as well as the lowest cost type of sea shipping available for motor vehicles. Your representative will let you know what preparations you may need to do to prepare your vehicle for transport but this will usually include cleaning the car out inside as well as on the exterior. You will want to make sure the fuel level is at or less than one quarter tank and that the battery is fully charges and the other fluids are at the correct levels. You will also want to disable any vehicle security alarms prior to the car being loaded for travel as it is possible for the alarm to be set off during transport. Not only can this be annoying for those working on the ship, but most importantly it can cause the automobile battery to drain during shipment.

Container Shipping- Shipping with enclosed, or container shipping, is a very popular way to ship your car, especially if you have a high priced automobile or an antique car. Containers are usually available in 20 or 40 foot sizes and many are climate controlled and even have padding for extra protection during transport. Just as with RORO shipping, cars are driven or rolled inside of the shipping container and then the container is loaded onto a container ship. Container shipping can take a little longer for delivery as there are fewer container ships available and also due to the fact that customs must open containers for inspection during transport. If you are shipping personal items inside the container you will need to have an accurate packing list detailing all of the contents of the container.

Motor Vehicle Regulations with Customs.

Motor vehicle regulations in Ecuador are very strict on emissions controls in automobiles. Prior to shipping your car to Portoviejo you will need to have an inspection complete on your car and make sure that the emissions is modernized and up to date for regulations. You can contact the Ecuador Embassy for more information on required vehicle mandates. For customs in Ecuador you will need to have the following paperwork:

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

Your auto transport representative will discuss other documents that you will need for customs when scheduling your car for transport.

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!
