Ship Car To San Cristobal

Ship Car To San Cristobal
🇩🇴 Dominican Republic, (DO)

Relocating to San Cristobal can be a time of awe and amazement because of the beautiful landscape and scenery throughout the city. Beautiful lakefront villas and recreational centers make this city one of the more popular to relocate to in the Dominican Republic. The city is also host to several coffee and cacao plantations, making it a great place for employment. When you’re making relocation plans you will most often find that having your personal vehicle will be a great benefit while in San Cristobal. People often worry about overseas shipping due to the expense as well as worry about safety of their vehicle during transport. When you add up the cost of hiring a taxi or a rental car, you’ll quickly see the benefit of having your own car to drive will greatly outweigh the shipping cost. As for safety, international shipping is very secure when handled by a professional automobile shipping company.

Professional Automobile Transport.

When you hire a professional auto transporter you can rest assured that your automobile will be in good hands every step of the journey. The agent who handles your car shipment schedule will give you complete details of the entire shipping process from start to finish. You’ll have convenient door to door transport and your car will be inspected prior to as well as post shipping to ensure there is no damage during the transport. You will want to check on available damage coverage that is offered for the shipment to ensure that it is adequate for the value of your automobile. Your agent will get a copy of your driver’s license, social security number and a signed Power of Attorney that will give them permission to transport your car both to the port in the United States as well as to your location in San Cristobal. The agent will explain the details of the shipping contract to you and will answer all questions you may have about what to expect when shipping overseas, shipping cost, time frame for pick-up or delivery and all other areas of automobile transport. You will be given a choice of how to ship the car, and that will be included in your final price quote.

How to Ship a Car to San Cristobal.

Since a person is not able to conveniently drive a car to the beautiful city, you will need to choose the type of overseas transport that will move the car for you. The following are ways to have a car shipped to San Cristobal:

RORO- Roll-On Roll-Off Shipping, also referred to as RORO is the simplest way to have your car shipped internationally. The easy method of driving (rolling) a motor vehicle onto the carrier and driving (rolling) it off makes it fast and efficient when loading multiple cars on and off the ship or truck. Millions of cars around the world are shipped via RORO every day of the year and when using RORO you’ll find that your car is not only safe during transport, but it will arrive quickly and cost less than other modes of transport for shipping.

Enclosed Shipping- Enclosed shipping is a more secure type of vehicle shipping that places the car inside of a shipping container during relocation. Many automobile collectors choose enclosed shipping due to the extra security of the car being sealed inside of a large shipping container. While enclosed shipping will cost more than RORO, it is preferred by thousands of people who want to ensure that the investment they have in their car will remain intact as sea water and air cannot reach the car during transport overseas.

Your agent will fully explain each type of international shipping with you and will assist you in determining which type will be best suited for your car as well as the budget you may be trying to stay within. Your agent will also guide you through the information you will need for the customs checkpoint when the car reaches the city and can schedule delivery after the customs clearance has been approved.


All motor vehicles that are shipped to San Cristobal must pass customs checkpoints as they enter the country. You can find great information from U.S. Customs on regulations as well as travel advisories and export/import laws. You can also contact the Embassy of the Dominican Republic for local laws and import expectations for the country. Individuals are only allowed to being one motor vehicle for personal use into the country and the engine size cannot be larger than six cylinders nor can it be classified as a luxury car. When the car arrives for the customs checkpoint, the owner must be present even if the car will be delivered by the transporter to the new home or office location and you will need to pay all taxes for import at the time of the customs inspection. Something that you will need to ensure you have is the paperwork required by customs. Some of the paperwork will include the following documents:

  • Valid Driver’s License.
  • Commercial Invoice or Sales Invoice.
  • Consular Invoice with the Dominican Republic Consular stamp.
  • Car Title.
  • Car Registration.

Having the proper required documentation is very important when proceeding through customs. Missing one paper or having a signature that does not match your name as listed on the photo identification can cause the import to be denied. If denied you will need to have the car exported back to the United States and will have to wait up to one year before you will be able to attempt import again.

Your shipping agent has the knowledge and experience to be able to assist you with all of your automobile shipping needs and to help guide you and answer any questions that you may have about the process.

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!
