Ship Car To Santiago de los Caballeros

🇩🇴 Dominican Republic, (DO)

Ship Car To Santiago de los Caballeros
🇩🇴 Dominican Republic, (DO)

Importing a motor vehicle to Santiago de los Caballeros is essential if you have relocated to the busy metropolitan city in the Dominican Republic. The city is a bustling city for businessmen as well as scholars who have relocated from the United States to attend school at one of the universities in the city. While many parts of the country are prone to hurricanes and extremely rainy weather during the year making driving difficult, Santiago de los Caballeros is fairly protected from severe weather and flooding due to the Cibao Valley that it is located in. Transportation in the city consists of many shared taxis, meaning that when you need to go anywhere you most often will need to make plans to leave early or arrive late. Having your own motor vehicle will not only ensure that you are able to travel where you need to on time, but it will cut the expense of having to hail a taxi daily.

Place Your Motor Vehicle in the Hands of Professionals.

Having your motor vehicle transported to your location in the city is simplified when you contact a professional auto transporter to take care of the shipping for you. When you initially speak to the customer representative you will provide information on your automobile such as make, model, year and anything that may have been done to modify the car in any way. Providing as many details about the car as possible will help to ensure an accurate price quote for shipping internationally. The customer service representative will go over the insurance coverage that is provided during transport. They will also be able to help with determining the best mode of transport for your motor vehicle. The types of available transport to ship a car to Santiago de los Caballero are:

  • RORO- RORO is used widely for shipping cars locally, nationwide and internationally. Over the last 20 years it has become the most common way to ship a motor vehicle of any make, model or year. Cars, trucks, vans, ATV’s, motorcycles and other types of wheeled transportation are rolled (driven) onto the shipping vessel and then transported to cities and countries around the world quickly and cost effectively. This type of transport is the perfect choice for shipping the motor vehicle that you will be driving daily while in Santiago de los Caballeros.
  • Enclosed Shipping- Enclosed shipping is best for classic and antique motor vehicles that may need a bit more protection from the elements and weather than a standard daily driving automobile needs. Placed into large, secure transport containers, the cars are safely transported to locations throughout the world. Shipping via enclosed transport will cost a little more than RORO but if you have a classic that you want to ensure extra protection during relocation, enclosed is the best way to move your automobile.

Your customer service representative will help you with all of your shipping needs from the initial paperwork to the schedule of your automobile being picked up and delivered to you in the city. While you will need to be present during the customs check, the representative can make arrangements to have the car delivered once clearance has been achieved so you will be free to meet the driver at your location and not have to worry about driving yourself if you don’t have the time due to work, school or other personal obligations.

Customs Rules.

Now that you know a little about how the process goes with arranging your motor vehicle for shipment, you also need to know about customs rules that are required when shipping a car to Santiago de los Caballero. You must follow these rules stringently to assure that your motor vehicle will be able to pass the clearance check when it arrives. The Dominican Republic has some very strict rules when it comes to importing motor vehicles. First, no luxury cars are allowed in the country and all cars must have an engine size of six cylinders or lower. No large high capacity engines will be allowed for import. Another important thing to note is that you have to own your car for at least one year before you import to the city. You can’t just buy a new car and import immediately. You can only bring one car into the country with you and you are required to be present when it goes through clearance. Legal documents are a must when importing a motor vehicle. Some of the required documents will be:

  • Your Driver’s License.
  • Car Title and Registration.
  • Commercial Invoice or Sales Receipt.
  • Stamped Consular Invoice from the Dominican republic.

Your auto transport customer service representative will be able to let you know what documents you will need for customs as well as inform you on the amounts you will need to pay for import duties and automobile taxes when you reach customs. If you would like information on possible travel advisories or export/import information for the United States, you can check with U.S. Customs for in depth information on all topics related to importing your automobile to Santiago de los Caballero. Another great source of information when traveling or relocating to the city is the Embassy of the Dominican Republic. You will be able to access information from them on local customs and laws, motor vehicle regulations and economic information for Santiago de los Caballeros.

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!
