Qingdao is located in the eastern part of the Shandong Province, on China’s east coast. It is considered the largest city in the Shandong Province. It is a major seaport, a naval base, and the industrial center located in Qingdao.

If you want to live here, you will want the pleasure of bringing your own vehicle with you.

Ways to Ship your Vehicle to Qingdao.

When shipping from the United States to China, you will have four shipping methods to choose from Roll On/ Roll Off shipping and container shipping. Container shipping - This type of shipping places a vehicle securely inside a container. While the vehicle is in the container, it is protected from the elements as well as collisions that could happen while the ship is traveling, while it rarely happens, the possibilities are still there. Once the containers are filled with your vehicle and everything else you plan to take with you, they are then loaded onto the ship and secured for the trip.

Roll On/ Roll Off shipping - With this method of shipping, a vehicle is driven up onto the carrier directly and then strapped down into place. Once the vehicle reaches the port in China, it is driven off. Because this method doesn't require a lot of extra work or space, the cost of transporting using this method is kept down.

Preparing your Vehicle for Shipping.

Before your vehicle can be shipped, you will need to prepare it first. There are a few things that you must do in order to keep your vehicle on schedule, otherwise, it will be quarantined.

  • Clean your vehicle inside and out very well. All dust and debris must be removed from the outside body of the vehicle and throughout the interior.
  • Car alarms will need to be disabled in order to prevent the battery from being drained.
  • Both the foot brakes and electronic breaks will need to be checked to ensure that they are functioning to the fullest compactly.
  • The vehicle will need to be completely emptied of any belongings. You will only be able to leave your spare tire and jack inside the vehicle during import.
  • Do not leave any ski racks, antennas, and other fixtures that can be detached during import. If they are removable, then remove them.
  • Leave 1/4 tank of gas in the tank during transport.

Required Documents.

It's important to know the Chinese Customs Authority, as they dictate that you will need to be present in the city at the time of your car's arrival so you can receive it. You will also need to bring the following documents with you when you come:

  • Proof of the age of your vehicle.
  • Importing Cargo Declaration.
  • Proof of vehicle evaluation.

These documents are required and without them, you will not be allowed to enter into China with your vehicle.

Qingdao CustomsRegulations.

You can find more about Qingdao's customs policies and regulations by accessing them online. Some of the highlights of these regulations include:

When you ship a vehicle from the United States to China, you can expect to pay fees in the total of $2500.00 to $6,000.00 depending on what method of shipping you choose. It's important that you check the Chinese import laws and taxes to pay before you begin the importing process.

  • China started banning the import of vehicles that are used for personal use in 2010. Only new vehicles for personal use are accepted now.
  • Customs taxes are calculated by the size of the engine. The percentage rate is less than 25%, however, it can be higher if your vehicle is considered a luxury vehicle.
  • Any foreign companies that are established in China and any foreign experts are allowed to import without paying taxes.
  • Jeeps are the only vehicle that accepts diesel fuels allowed in China
  • Only left-handed vehicles are allowed in China.

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!
