What Is The Cost Of Shipping A Car To Brazil

The cost of shipping consists of various fees, determined by a number of things. This makes it impossible to name an exact price for an auto transport to Brazil. Fortunately, most international transport companies give an estimate to an individual within minutes. This is close to the total cost if the correct information's provided.

Not only must you consider the cost of the shipping services purchased, but you must remember to pay the duties for the car’s import into Brazil. You absolutely cannot get permission to have the vehicle imported until proof of paid duties is provided to Customs. While the Embassy of Brazil can provide you with the most current auto import information, the taxes associated with auto imports from the U.S. have remained rather steady for some time.

Information in Regards to Auto Import Duties for Brazil

  • Import Tax: 35% over CIF value.
  • Sales Tax (ICMS) varies by state.
  • Tax on Industrial Products (IPI).
  • 2% for 1.0 liter engine models.
  • 8% for higher power engine models.
  • 38% for imported cars.
  • Social Contribution Tax (Cofins): 7.6% of the final price.
  • Social Contribution Tax (PIS): 1.65%

Because Brazil only allows newer and classic vehicles to be imported into the country, taxes can become extremely high. Nevertheless, it is still more beneficial to buy shipping services through a reputable transporter. Buying a car in Brazil is extremely difficult, and public transit presents language and currency barriers.

The way you choose to have your car delivered is perhaps the highest of all the expenses associated with the overseas shipping process. RO/RO shipping methods are much less expensive and average around $2,000. Container shipping methods are usually $5,000 or more, but provide you with enough space to have other belongings shipped over at the same time.

Satisfied Customers

“A1 Auto Transport means stress-free. I shipped my Toyota Prius from Chicago to Mississippi, and they were very flexible in terms of pick-up and delivery time. I'll surely put them on my favourites list. The car arrived safely and in perfect condition. Other than a bit of dust caught on the road, there’s nothing to report. It was the best service and a very pleasant company!”

“Hello!As part of our "Deal" we ended up using the dealers transport company. HOWEVER, we still have not seen the car. No one seems to know when it's arriving either. It's been fifteen days now. Trust me, next time we WILL use you guys!”

“If anyone’s looking for auto transport, I very much recommend A1 Auto Transport. Great team! Great company! I called them to get my Jeep to Vermont, and they pulled through on all levels. Joe, the one who answered my call, was knowledgeable, pleasant to speak to, and very professional. I took my time explaining my situation, and he did not interrupt. He answered my questions, laid out everything I needed to know, and gave me several options for my transportation. I chose to ship my car with a covered truck for extra safety. It was scheduled to arrive in a couple days and was supposed to get to its destination in around 4-5 days. Great job on sticking to the schedule! The driver was on time on both fronts. I’m really grateful. A1 Auto Transport is a very professional company with very competent people running it. I could not find a single fault with their methods.”

“I just want to thank you and your staff, especially Sherrie, for assisting with the safe transport of our vehicle. It was handled promptly and efficiently, by competent distributors. Everything went exactly as Sherrie described the process and we received the car without difficulty or damage. I was enormously pleased with your cost, timeliness, and careful handling. Thank you very much for your service and help.”

“To whom it may concern: I currently work out of the Auto Driveaway Co - Atlanta, Georgia location. At this moment I would like to take this time to say "THANK YOU" to one of your representatives Ms. Cherie Morse. Repeatedly she has presented herself ( and a reflection on A1 Auto Transport ) to be quite capable to me - promptly answering my questions ( mostly quotes @ competitive rates ) and assisting me in tracking down those trucking movements - done in the past. Unlike other companies wherein I get a "machine" and MIGHT get an answer back that day - Even with her voice mail, her response is immediate and for the want of nothing else, I wanted someone to know at A1 Auto Transport that I "at least" sincerely appreciate all her efforts. Thank you again. Sincerely, Phillip Raila Auto Driveaway Company, Atlanta”
