Ship Car To San Salvador
🇸🇻 El Salvador, (SV)

The capital of El Salvador, San Salvador is the most populated city and municipality of the country. It is the cultural, financial and educational hub and due to that there are an increasing number of foreigners and expatriates in the country.

If you plan on moving here for a few months or a couple of years, having your vehicle with you can give you the freedom of movement.

However, there are many specifications and requirements that have to be fulfilled before the vehicle can be imported to El Salvador. To start with, it is mandatory to possess an original and clear title. If the vehicle is under a lien, you need to present a letter authorizing the vehicle to be shipped abroad.

Motor vehicle regulations.

For exporting your vehicle to this place, the U.S Customs will ask you to drop the car off at the pier from where it is likely to be shipped out after 72 hours. This time is enough for checking out the vehicle proficiency and verification of the documents. It will give time to the El Salvador Customs to assure that nothing has been placed in the vehicle after going through initial inspection.

In case you are planning to drive to El Salvador, you might have to reconsider it. The roads, situated between the Southern US and El Salvador are not maintained properly, and some junctions are termed as quite dangerous. That is why it is best to ship your vehicle by freight shipping with the assistance of A1 Auto Transport Company. You can easily import your car in El Salvador in an efficient and safe manner. You need to be present in this country to complete the auto shipment process. You need to be present in San Salvador, when the vehicle arrives and submit the proper identification upon arrival to clear the El Salvador customs. These include:

  • Title deed.
  • Insurance and registration certificate.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Invoice of vehicle purchase.
  • Passport and photo ID of owner.
  • Permit to import.
  • Listed details of the vehicle- VIN, chassis/engine number, model, year of manufacture.

The cost of shipping includes the methods including RORO and Container shipping. If you have an expensive vehicle, it is best to use container shipping and in case, you are just shipping the vehicle, RORO works best. You need to oversee the process and make sure that A1 Auto Transport service is with you at every step. The company plays a pivotal role in this entire procedure, and we are going to help you and your car after arriving in El Salvador.

Costs associated with shipping.

El Salvador works on Central American Tariff Service. The vehicle is considered as a commodity and that is why there is a 13% tax on the vehicle. Other than VAT, you have to pay 30% of your vehicle’s present CIF value, depending on make, year, and model of the vehicle.

Auto transportation.

The auto shipping company must be a license holder and bonded through Federal Maritime Commission. It offers you with greater protective level and ensures that the firm receives higher licensure level. And A1 Auto Transport service meets all legal requirements.

We recommend that you take the tags off the car before shipping. The plates can be stolen off the vehicles, which can be an issue. The vehicles, which are shipped via container shipping and RORO, must be cleaned and have an empty gas tank, as mentioned by the U.S. Customs. To know more details about shipping to San Salvador, you can contact the Embassy of El Salvador.

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!
