The agent is going to want to know how you are going to transport your vehicle to South Korea. There are a lot of ports which offer this service on all three costs of the USA so you should consider choosing the one which is closest to you.
The shipping agency is also going to offer you door-to-port shipping services which are generally going to be a bit more expensive, so you can consider driving it yourself. You can choose between container shipping and RORO (Roll-on/Roll-off). The former includes your car being placed within a private container while the latter means your car is going to be driven on a shipping deck on its wheel and transported this way. The first choice is more expensive but it’s also going to allow you protection from the elements and the chance to ship other items as well.
It’s highly advisable to thoroughly inspect your car for dents and scratches prior to the process. Make sure you document this and compare the results when you get your car delivered. This way you’ll know if there were problems with the transportation. Additional documents that you need to submit to the South Korean Customs Department include:
- Clear title deed.
- Vehicle insurance.
- Proof of ownership- passport, driving license.
- Receipts of the import duties.
- Bill of Lading.
- Original purchase invoice.
The majority of the carriers are going to have insurance on the vehicles which are being shipped but it’s always advisable to get your own insurance policy, especially if your vehicle is very expensive.
