Car Shipping Tocumen

The third populated city in Panama, Tocumen is situated within the Greater Metropolis of Panama district.  The international airport is situated here and caters to the international traffic that tourists bring with them. That is one of the reasons that the employment opportunities are high. There many students, tourists, returning citizens and even diplomats call it home for a short or long term. For faster and easier commuting, they import their vehicles and enjoy the tropical weather in Panama.

If you are contemplating working or staying in Tocumen, it is important to have your own vehicle shipped from USA. But it is not as easy as it sounds because there is a lot of paperwork, permits and Custom duties or taxes to pay in USA and Panama. Only after that can you get the delivery of your vehicle. That is one of the reasons that A1 Auto Transport Service has a large network of experienced shipping agents that will work with you in USA and offer the same quality of assistance in Panama. We are aware of the shipping and import laws in Panama and can offer assistance at every step of the procedure. Offering door to port and port to port services at an additional cost, we can pick up your car from USA and deliver it to you in Tocumen.  There are documents to submit at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection and when the vehicle enters the Panama port. You will be required to file:

  • Vehicle owner’s identification- Passport/driving license.
  • Original Bill of Purchase.
  • US-bought Insurance proof.
  • Title deed.
  • Car Registration documents.
  • Import permit from Panama government.

Before you start the procedure of shipping which includes letting the US Customs about your intent to ship, the essential documents will need to be submitted for verification at least 3-4 days before you ship. Similarly, these documents must be submitted by the shipping service at the Panama Customs. Check the map of ports in US to select the one that is closest to your location and in Panama, your vehicle will be offloaded at Port of Cristobal, Port of Balboa or El Puerto de Bocas del Toro.

You will need to account not only the freight charges but the additional custom duties and taxes that have to be cleared at both the ports. The total cost of shipping the vehicle will depend upon the cost of the vehicle, freight charges and insurance that you will pay while the vehicle is in transit. The way you ship will leave a mark on the cost. As RORO is cheap and Container shipping is expensive, you can decide which method to select. Currently, the Panama custom and excise duty is 30% of the vehicle’s CIF value.

If you intend shipping household goods along with the vehicle, you need to select container shipping herein you can hire 20 feet or 40 feet shipping container, secure and seal everything inside it. On the contrary, if you select Roll-on/Roll-Off shipping method, the car is driven on an open deck and harnessed in a bay. You are not allowed to keep any personal belongings inside the vehicle and it has to be completely clean, empty and locked.

We’ll be happy to get the documentation and transportation procedures completed so you can focus on other aspects of the move. For more information on importing vehicles, call in the Embassy of Panama in USA.

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!
