Import U.S registered a vehicle to South Korea.

If you want to import your vehicle from the United States to Seongnam-si, you must consider all the factors that go into importing, including hiring a dependable and reliable shipping company like A1 Auto Transport service. With over two decades of solid experience in the business, we understand what it takes to successfully ship your vehicle from the United States to anywhere in the world. A1 Auto Transport will assist you in following all the rules and guidelines necessary to successfully import a vehicle to South Korea.

We will assist you to avoid delays because we know what it takes to successfully import a vehicle without any complications, saving you time and money. You will first need to determine which port you will be exporting the car in the United States. This will depend on where your vehicle is currently located. There are a number of port cities around the American coastal line. Once you find a port, you may want to choose the door-to-port service which will bring your vehicle from your home to the port for you.

Requirements to import to Seongnam-si.

There are a few laws that must be followed when importing to Seongnam-si. If you are planning to stay in Seongnam-si for at least six months, you are allowed to ship your vehicle here. No Japanese vehicles are allowed to be imported in the country. Any vehicle that can seat more than ten passengers will not be allowed to be imported. The vehicle should be owned by you for at least three months before you have it shipped. Vehicles are considered part of household goods as long as they are imported within six months after you move to Seongnam-si so you will not need to pay any taxes to bring it over. When importing your vehicle, you will need to bring the following documentation:

  • Custom declaration.
  • One year work permit.
  • Proof of insurance.
  • Full details of the vehicle.
  • Registration.
  • Passport of the owner.

Your vehicle will need to clear customs as well as the Korean Customs Service before entering. You will also need to make sure that you have paid the duty and tax due on new or used vehicles. In order to determine the tax amount, new vehicles are based on the size of the engine. If the vehicle is not part of the household goods, there are a number of checks that will be completed in order to determine whether or not it can be imported; noise and vibration inspections, emissions inspections, and Korea Automobile Test and Research Institute, which will handle testing the vehicles too. In order to clear customs, you will need to provide the following documents or a copy of each:

  • Proof of purchase of the vehicle.
  • Insurance proof.
  • Vehicle registration.

Opt For Varied Shipping Methods.

Before you are provided with the final quote, you will need to pick the freight shipping method. And it is likely that you want to save as much money as possible. You have two shipping options to choose from that will be determined by what type of transport you are looking for, what size do you need, and does it matter if it is exposed to the weather or not.

Container shipping is one shipping method where the car will be placed inside a container measuring either 20 foot or 40 foot total. Roll On/ Roll Off shipping method allows your car to be driven onto the ship before leaving the U.S port and driving off once it reaches the port in South Korea. It is secured on the deck of the ship during transport.

It's important that A1 Auto Transport Service agent or you note any scratches and dents in the vehicle prior to shipping and document each one. You may want to also take pictures of these as well. Once it reaches the destination, you will be able to assess your vehicle and verify the overall condition. To learn more about shipping to South Korea, contact the Embassy of South Korea located in the United States.

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!
