Wherever you live in the United States, you’ll have to get your vehicle to a port city that has departures for South Korea, if you’re thinking about shipping your vehicle there. That means you’ll need to hire an international shipper that actually arranges shipments there, and is conversant with all the requirements, rules, and regulations of the country.

Choosing the right shipping agent might be the single most important step you take when preparing to ship your vehicle to South Korea, because the right shipper can smooth the way for a hassle-free transit between the two countries, and will be knowledgeable about what needs to be done to minimize any delays through Korean Customs.

The questions that your shipper will ask you right up front have to do with how you intend to transport your vehicle to the departure point in the U.S. There are numerous port cities on each of the three coasts of America, so the departure port will depend on where you live and which ports your international shipper uses.

Your shipper will probably offer a door-to-port service wherein your car is retrieved right from your doorstep and transported to the port city, or to save some cost you can drive it there yourself.

When the vehicle is being shipped overseas, you will have to decide whether you want it shipped via RORO shipping (Roll-on/Roll-off) or via container. The difference is that with RORO, your vehicle is driven under its own power onto and off from the ship, and if containerized it will be hoisted on and off by a crane. Of course, making the trip in a container will also protect it from the elements as well, whereas just being secured to the deck with RORO is the cheaper and less sheltered method.

It is always a good idea to thoroughly inspect your vehicle before a long shipment like this, even taking photos for documentation purposes, so that you can be positive of its condition before shipping. This can then be compared with its condition upon arrival to be sure that no damage was incurred during shipping.

Most shipping carriers have insurance on vehicles being shipped, but if your vehicle is an especially expensive one or if it can be considered some kind of classic vehicle, you may want to consider carrying extra insurance of your own.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To South Korea

  1. Title.
  2. Registration.
  3. Purchase invoice.
  4. Proof of insurance.
  5. Customs declaration (original and copy)
  6. Inventory list & bill of lading.
  7. Passport and work visa.

Rules, Regulations, Requirements

On the U.S. side, you will need to consult with the Customs and Border Protection agency (or else your shipping agent will) to establish proof of ownership, clear title, registration, and driver licensure.

To do this, you will need to provide a bill of sale with your name on it, and the original title showing no liens against the vehicle. If there is still a lien on the car, it will be necessary to have a notarized document from the lien holder authorizing the export of the vehicle.

Your shipper will probably be aware of all customs regulations in port at South Korea, but if you want to acquaint yourself with some of them as well, it is advisable to contact the South Korean Embassy in the U.S. for that.

In general, though, there will be a duty on any foreign vehicle coming into the country, regardless of its new or used status, and such vehicles may not be sold or transferred within the country for a period of at least three years.

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To South Korea

Without all the proper components, shipping heavy equipment or oversized cargo to South Korea from the United States will prove to be difficult. It takes ground and sea haulers, and high quality shipping materials and equipment. Some familiarity with foreign import policies is also needed to safely carry out an overseas transport. Luckily, there no need to search to hard for the right transport company. A1 Auto Transport can help anyone looking to transport their heavy equipment or oversized cargo to another country.

For more insight as to what we’re able to ship, here’s a condensed list of the heavy and oversized equipment we’re able to deliver overseas...

  • Tractors
  • Backhoes and excavators
  • RVs and motorhomes
  • Industrial equipment
  • Farm equipment
  • Combines
  • Motor graders
  • Harvesters
  • Fork lifts
  • Bulldozers, dump trucks and forklifts
  • Hydraulic equipment
  • Oversized engines
  • Pile drivers
  • Cranes
  • Large trucks & heavy vehicles

How You Can Transport Your Cargo to South Korea through A1

There are various shipping methods available through A1 contingent on the type of cargo you have. When you call in for a free quote and to schedule your international delivery process, our representatives will discuss your options with you once you answer a few of their questions regarding your cargo. Below, you’ll find a brief description of each of our international shipping methods.

  • Lift On/Lift Off (LoLo Shipping)- By using a crane, we will carefully lift your cargo up and place it on the boat. Once it reaches South Korea, it will be lifted off the ship with the crane. We usually recommend this service to those with inoperable equipment and vehicles or crated heavy equipment.
  • Roll On/Roll Off (RoRo Shipping)- This is the most inexpensive open air shipping option available. With the aid of a ramp, your equipment or vehicle must drive onto and off of the boat.
  • Container Shipping- If your heavy equipment can fit inside of a 40ft shipping container, then this enclosed method of transport is open to you. This service provides more protection so it tends to cost slightly more.
  • Flat Rack Shipping- With this open air shipping method your cargo is strapped to a large metal frame before it is placed atop the ship.

Satisfied Customers

“A1 Auto Transport helped me move a vehicle to Iowa from Houston. I was a bit nervous, no knowing much about such services. Thanks to Joe, I was able to clear the fog a little. He answered all my questions and explained everything in a way that left no room for interpretation. The details were straightforward. I picked Sunday as the pickup date, since I wasn’t at work, and they accommodated me. The truck arrived an hour early, yet the driver patiently waited for me to arrive. He thoroughly checked my car for scratches or anything that might affect the transport then drove it onto the truck. I was given a 2 day time window during which the car was supposed to arrive in, and it got to Iowa in the evening of the first day. The trip didn’t damage it at all. Next time a friend wants to move, I’ll surely recommend A1 Auto Transport.”

“A1 Auto Transport means stress-free. I shipped my Toyota Prius from Chicago to Mississippi, and they were very flexible in terms of pick-up and delivery time. I'll surely put them on my favourites list. The car arrived safely and in perfect condition. Other than a bit of dust caught on the road, there’s nothing to report. It was the best service and a very pleasant company!”

“I am super happy with my choice of A1 Auto Shipping. The other company I worked with was super difficult, though it did teach me a bit about the industry. Some brokers underbid by a lot, so they’ll get your contract, even if there are no carriers who will ever want to take on a job at such a price. Because of this, after signing the contract, they may leave you hanging endlessly. I had to get my car to Kentucky and had no time for pointless waiting. The other company asked me to pay $800 upfront. I didn’t know at the time this wasn’t standard practice. By paying upfront, I basically had no choice but to wait on them till a truck finally offered to take my car. A1 Auto Transport, for example, only asks for a deposit amounting to a fraction of the total cost when picking up your vehicle. You only pay the full sum after the job is done. The broker, whose name I won’t mention, was supposed to get a truck to my doorstep on the 5th of September. I put my order in 10 days prior, so there was plenty of time to find one. When I called them, they told me the 5th was actually the earliest estimate, and the actual pickup date could be quite long time away. After “accidentally” charging another $700 for my transportation, I was in tears. I had to move in less than a week, and I couldn’t afford to leave my car behind. So, I gave up on those guys and opted for A1 Auto Transport. I spoke with Joe and he got my car on a truck the following day. I am so grateful! The arrival time was estimated at 6-8 days, and it got to Kentucky on the 7th. This saved me a ton of money I would have had to spend on transport to search for an apartment. Joe called a day earlier to let me know of the time and place it would arrive. I asked if it could be delivered to another nearby location, and he was nice enough to do it. He was very helpful and straight forward. Thank you!”

“Nataly, I hadn't had a chance to respond, sooner, as I would've hoped. My experience was GREAT! I got my car at the estimated time with no issues at all. The driver who picked up my car was also the same, and very kind. He hadn't had alot of sleep, but he was still very pleasant. The pick-up location was easy to find and they were professional. Constant contact was kept with me to let me know when my car had arrived in Texas and when it would be ready for pick up. It was the first time I've ever had to ship a the past I've just driven. I've driven LA to Texas enough times that I could probably drive it with my eyes closed. I will also take the time to post a testimonial on your website because my experience was that great! Thanks for asking and have a fabulous rest of the day! Kim ~change is good...progress is better~”

“We were going back to Ohio after a job opportunity didn’t work out. The whole family was tired, and we just wanted to get back home and start over. I used A1 Auto Transport to transport my car when I first moved, and they did a good job, so I called them again. I explained to Joe my situation, and he was very understanding. I was not in the mood for any drawn out discussions. He picked up on that and went straight to the point. He suggested we use the same arrangements we had when I first used their services, and I agreed immediately. The car was moved using the same open trailer and driver as before. This was reassuring, as I knew the man was good at his job, and everything went well the last time. Nothing unfortunate happened this time either, and the car was delivered in 4 days. It was in good condition. They informed me each day of its location, but I didn’t bother replying because moving my family and all my belongings took all my time. I’m better now and would like to thank Joe and his team sincerely for all they’ve done! I’ll gladly recommend you to my friends.”
