Shipping Cars Overseas from California

Shipping a car to another country from the coast of California is best done through a professional auto carrier. Trying to ship a car to another country any other way is nearly impossible, especially without the help of experienced professionals. You need a lot to successfully complete an international transport. It would cost way more to try and carry out the transport alone than it would to hire those already established in the industry.

Estimating the cost of an auto transport cannot be done without supplying the transport company with a few details. Then, they’ll take that information and give you a quote for their shipping services.

How to Get a an Honest Total for Your Overseas Transport out of California

As you search online for the most reputable auto carriers nearby to ship a car to another nation, narrow your results to a few selected transporters. Look for certain qualities that stand out. Read over any reviews and testimonials you find too. This will give you a better idea of how well the company operates.

Contact the transporters that you feel possess all the right qualities. As you do this, expect to answer a few questions. By answering the questions in as much detail as possible, it’ll be easier for the transporter to give you a true quote.

Some Information You Will Need to Provide

  • Vehicle Make and Model
  • Vehicle’s Weight
  • Distance of Transport
  • Desired Shipping Services

After the information needed is provided, the transporter will calculate the most honest quote possible for your car’s transport. Although you are given a quote for the transport of your vehicle, expect to pay taxes and duties on the shipping process. This could cost more than the services through the transporter. Call the embassy of the country to find out what the current tax and duty rates are months before the shipping date. You’ll have to provide Customs with proof that these were paid off.

Ways to Ship a Car Overseas

There are two common transport methods that most customers purchase for the transport of their vehicle. These services include open air and enclosed shipping services. Both of them are great methods of transporting a car overseas, but RO/RO shipping is an open air service that tends to cost much less and be just as effective. Most transport companies will suggest enclosed transport methods for vehicles of higher value. It offers more protection from outdoor elements like poor weather conditions. Nonetheless, your transporter will provide you with insurance coverage as required by California state law.

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!
