Car Shipping Santo Domingo

Santo Domingo de los Colorados is a very important business city in Ecuador. Situated west beneath the Andes Mountains, the terrain in the city is very arduous and having a car to drive is often more a necessity than just a convenience. Before you ship your personal vehicle you need to learn the motor vehicle laws and traffic patterns of the city. Traffic can be erratic when compared to the flow of traffic in the United States. People often tend to ignore road signs speed limits so driving cautiously is advised. Also be aware that since the city lays below the Andes the roadways tend to flood frequently and travel may be slow or impossible during flooding. When you’re ready to relocate your car to the city, you’ll need to hire a professional automobile transport company to take care of shipping for you.

International Automobile Transport.

There are thousands of automobile transport companies listed online with new companies springing up almost daily. You have to hire a professional that has experience shipping overseas. A-1 Auto Transport has been shipping cars internationally for more than 20 years and you can depend on services to have your car shipped safely and affordably anytime of the year. You will need to speak to an agent and provide some information on your automobile to receive an accurate international shipping price quote. The agent will need to know the make, model and year of your car. They also need to know if you have modified your car in any way. Lift kits and other accessories can alter the height and weight of your car and it is very important that this is documented as the correct auto carrier must be assigned for transport. Transport space is allotted by the size and weight of vehicles that are loaded onto the carrier, and knowing the precise dimension of the automobile is critical for shipping overseas as well as transporting via land to the shipping port. Aside from specific details about your car, the agent will also need to gather some paperwork from you. Paperwork needed will include:

The Power of Attorney will be necessary to give legal permission for the automobile transport company to ship the car for you as well as deliver it to the shipping port if you will need pick-up and delivery. Door to door pick-up and delivery will be included in the total price quote.

Modes of International Automobile Transport.

When making plans to ship your car internationally you will need to determine the mode of transport that will be used to move your automobile. For shipping to Santo Domingo de los Colorados there are a few ways to choose from. Those ways are:

Roll/On Roll/Off (RORO)- Roll/On Roll/Off transport is the simplest mode of international automobile shipping and is the most commonly used way to ship a car. Cars are rolled onto the RORO vessel for transport, securely strapped into place and then rolled off the vessel when it reaches the destination. This mode of automobile transport is the least expensive as well as the fastest way to ship by sea. RORO is excellent for all types of motor vehicles including cars, trucks, vans, SUV’s, ATV’s, Buses and much more. If it can be rolled, or driven onto the RORO ship, it is able to be transported by RORO.

Containerized- Containerized shipping is similar to RORO with automobiles being driven inside of the large shipping container for delivery. Large shipping containers are used to transport luxury, classic and collectors cars primarily, but they can be used to ship everyday driving vehicles as well. If you have personal items to ship at the same time as the car, using a container is very beneficial as you can load non-vehicle items into the shipping container as well.

Air Freight- Air freight is a very rapid way to have a motor vehicle delivered and is used often for extremely expensive luxury vehicles and valuable personal items. While it is the most expensive way to ship a car, it is definitely the fastest way to have your automobile delivered.

Once you make the decision on the mode of transport that will be used for your automobile your agent will be able to provide a total shipping quote. You will also want to inquire about the amount of damage insurance coverage available and make sure that the amount is correct for your personal vehicle.

Customs Regulations for Automobile Imports.

When shipping a car to Santo Domingo de los Colorados you will have to adhere to the customs regulations in both the United States as well as those in Ecuador. When shipping a car from the United States you will need to provide some paperwork to U.S. Customs. The paperwork needs to be submitted for approval prior to the export so it is best to send it to them at least 2 weeks prior to shipment in order to avoid delays. Your agent will let you know which paperwork you need for exportation.

Customs in Ecuador will allow one personal car per person to be imported and the car has to be within five years of the manufacture date. You will need to provide some paperwork to Ecuador Customs as well and that will include:

  • Driver’s License.
  • Vehicle Bill of Sale.
  • Vehicle Title.
  • Passport.

Once the car arrives in Ecuador a physical inspection will be done to ensure that the emissions and other automobile features are up to date with current motor vehicle regulations. For more information on import regulations and motor vehicle laws you can contact the Ecuador Embassy in Washington, DC.

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!
