How to Ship a Car to China from the US through an Overseas Transport Company?
Moving to China from the U.S. isn’t something easily done. It takes a lot of time and organization to move from one country to another. Luckily, there are services out there that can help you with the move.
For example, international auto transport is one of the services often purchased by individuals moving overseas.
This is the most reliable and affordable way to relocate a car without causing it harm or raising the mileage. Transport companies guarantee their services and even protect all the vehicles in their care under their insurance policy. Shipping a car to China is much easier and less stressful with professionals.
Complying with China’s Import Policy.
The import laws for China aren’t as strict as they could be. With the assistance of the transporter, you will find that it’s much easier to comply with the laws for import.
- Any cars over 20 years old are prohibited.
- Vehicle must be left-hand drive.
- Used vehicles may only be driven for personal use.
- Vehicles that run on diesel are allowed to enter China.
- Hybrid and electric cars can be delivered. However, it is hard to find parts for them in China.
The import laws for China change every so often. Call the Embassy of China to learn more about the auto import policy. They can even provide you with the most current tax and duty rates. Any taxes associated with the transport must be paid in full before the car can gain import clearance from Customs.
