Car Shipping Salvador

Salvador is the capital of the northeastern state Bahia and it is known for the architecture which is inherited from the Portuguese colony. The serene and beautiful city attracts, returning citizens, students, and tourists from all over the world.

Additionally, employment opportunities attract expatriates. Thus, if you intend moving here, one of the important aspects would be to bring over your vehicle with you for easier and faster commuting.

This, however, isn’t as stressful as you might believe and if you have a A1 Auto Transport working with you the procedure is going to be rather seamless. What is more, the country doesn’t make it hard for you to import a car. What is more, having a car in the country is definitely beneficial and much more convenient. The roads in the country are properly maintained and the majority of them are a pleasure to drive through. However, there are some which aren’t but the government is working to get them fixed soon.

Requirements for shipping

The Brazil allows everyone to import a car as long as the car is new. The only exception is when the car is over 30 years of age as it’s considered to be a classic one or it has an antique status. Another restriction is concerned with the emission and safety standards of the country. You have to be aware of that and make contact with the Ministry of Transport to get them all sorted out in advance. At A1 Auto Transport service, we take care of the procedures.

You will also need to get an import authorization for the vehicle as well as an approval from the department of the environmental affairs. You need to present these at the destination port in person or through your shipping agent in order to get the clearance. All of the vehicles need to pass the emission tests and you need to provide additional documentation which includes:

  • Registration documents.
  • Title deed.
  • Passport.
  • Ownership proof.
  • Proof of passing the aforementioned tests.
  • Picture ID or License.

You can contact the Embassy of Brazil should you need any further information regarding the entire process. It is important to remember that before you start you need the import authorization from SISCOMEX which controls the foreign imports/exports in the country. Additionally, if the vehicle meets the noise and emission standards in Brazil, the “Licença para Uso da Configuração do Veículo ou Motor” (LCVM) will be issued.

Available Shipping Methods

There are two main shipping methods which the majority of people prefer to use when importing a car into the country. The first one is called Roll On/Roll Off. The name stands for itself – you drive the vehicle on its own wheels on a shipping deck and it’s fastened and secured on the freight carrier. It’s not allowed to have any other personal belongings within the car. This is the cheapest and fastest water-bound transportation method.

Container shipping, on the other hand, might be more expensive and slower but it’s more convenient if you have to transport other belongings with the car. You get to choose between a 20ft and a 40ft container and fill it with as many belongings as you want.

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To El Salvador

Need help shipping your oversized cargo to El Salvador? At A1 Auto Transport, we have experience, training and access to the most modern and highest quality transport equipment to ship any type of heavy equipment to another country. In most cases, any cargo that cannot fit into a 40ft shipping container is considered oversized unless its weight surpasses its size significantly. Some examples of oversized cargo we can deliver outside of the U.S. include…

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

Not only can we guarantee a safe delivery of your cargo to El Salvador, but we will make sure it is lawfully approved for export and import. The compliance with import policies is perhaps the most confusing and difficult part of the entire overseas shipping process, especially for those unfamiliar with the laws pertaining to importation. With our professional assistance everything will go along as planned without hesitation.

Affordable Overseas Heavy Equipment Shipping Options

There are several overseas heavy equipment shipping options offered but depending on the heavy equipment or oversized cargo you’d like to have transported, not all of these options may be available to you. Below are the all the shipping options we offer to those transporting equipment overseas...

  • Lift-On Lift-Off- This method of transport is offered to those shipping inoperable vehicles or crated heavy equipment. A crane lifts the cargo to place it on the ship and then is used again to lift the cargo off the ship.
  • Roll-On Roll-Off - This is the least expensive international transport method. Only those with operable vehicles and heavy equipment can use this service since the cargo must be rolled onto and off the ship using a ramp.
  • Flat Rack- Your cargo is strapped to a metal frame before it’s put on top of the ship. Since flat racks are usually the last to be loaded onto the boat, your equipment may be covered with shrink wrap for added protection from inclement weather conditions.
  • Container Shipping- Most heavy equipment and oversized cargo won’t fit into a 40ft container, making it an option that’s not always available to everyone. With the four walls and a ceiling barricading your cargo, this method of transport provides the most security than the other shipping methods offered.

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!
