Importing Car from USA

The shipper you hire will be in charge of overseeing your transport. Ensure that you have all paperwork and that your shipment meets all the rules and regulations of shipping and exporting a vehicle in both the United States and Argentina.
The shipping agent will be certain that your vehicle is following the guidelines that will help it to pass through the Argentinian ports. Knowing the customs requirements is a must for shipping agents to successfully ship vehicles for you. Since you already know that your vehicle is to be exported out of a U.S. shipping port, you will need to determine how your vehicle will be imported to Argentina. You will either drive your vehicle to the port for departure or it will be to select an additional service with the shipping agent that will have your car picked up from you desired location and then driven to the port. While these add one do cost you more, it may be worth it for you to do other things while your vehicle is being exported.
Ways to Ship Overseas
If you want to transport a vehicle from the USA to Argentina, you will pay anywhere from $2,100 to $4,000. With the recent hike in import taxes, you will need to determine if importing to Argentina is affordable before you start the process. You will need to determine what type of shipping method you plan to use for your vehicle. You can choose to ship your vehicle over in a container or you can ship it on an open deck of a ship, also known as the Roll On/ Roll Off shipping method. If you choose the container shipping, you will choose either the 20 foot container or the 40 foot container. Your vehicle will stay in this container, protecting it from the incremental weather and the open deck of the ship until it reaches port.
With Roll On/ Roll Off shipping, the car is simply driven onto the deck of a ship using ramps where it is fastened down for the trip. If you choose this method, you can only have one-quarter gas tank available during transport so that the ships staff can move the vehicle wherever it needs to. It's important that all personal possessions are out of the vehicle, you a leave a spare tire and car jack and in the vehicle during transport. Roll On/ Roll Off shipping method is the best affordable way to import your vehicle to another country. If you are shipping a valuable vehicle, you may want to use the container shipping method instead.
