Auto Shipping Quote Calculator

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.
