Requirements to ship to Seoul

As per the South Korean law, as the owner you need to plan to stay for a minimum of 6 months. However, no Japanese cars are allowed within the country. Any car or vehicle that can seat more than ten people cannot be imported. Some other requirements include:

  • should be owned by the owner, for at least 3 months before shipping.
  • Considered household good if imported within 6 months of owner’s move to Seoul.
  • No taxes after custom cleared if considered household goods.

Additionally, there are other aspects that you need to consider including:

  • Full details on the make, model, year and registration deed.
  • Proof of purchase and price receipts needed.
  • Passport of the owner.
  • Insurance on the vehicle.
  • Custom declaration.
  • 1-year valid work permit.

It is important that car needs to clear customs and the Korean Customs Service charges duty and tax on both new and used vehicles. On new vehicles the engine size determines the payable duty. If the car is not considered part of the household goods, there are various checks that need to be completed, including:

  • Vibration/noise inspections.
  • Emission inspection.
  • Korea Automobile Test and Research Institute carries out model and type approvals.

To clear the customs, there are plenty of documents that need to be submitted including:

  • Registration deed and documents.
  • Proof of purchase.
  • Insurance documents.

Auto shipping methods.

If you are looking to save some money in the process, you can take the vehicle to the port. Overseas shipping involves two main procedures namely,

  • Container shipping: In container shipping, your car remains inside the container with other vehicles to distribute the associated costs. Usually these are 20 feet or 40 feet secured containers.
  • RO-RO shipping: Here the vehicle will be driven on and off the ship. Secured on the open deck, you are not allowed to keep any personal belongings.

For documentation of its condition prior to the shipment, you should take images of the car as well. Compare this with the condition once it reaches the destination. If there is any kind of damage, you will be able to identify it immediately. We offer a basic insurance that you may consider additional covers in case of expensive four-wheel ride.

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!
