Move Car South Korea

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.

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.

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!
