Whatever your situation, transporting and importing a car or motorcycle from the USA to cross country vehicle shipping is an operation that can be tedious. Smart Auto Move offers to take care of all this for you, from the logistics to put in place to the administrative procedures.
In concrete terms, we pick up your vehicle wherever it is in the United States, and then transport it to one of our warehouses. We carry out the administrative procedures (customs declaration, etc.), and finally we deliver your vehicle to the port. We can offer you our services at the best price / quality ratio.
The delivery prices of vehicles are from 40 cents to $ 1.3 per mile for a car and it depends on some other features at that time for example the price of fuel at the shipping time. Transit times vary depending on the initial location of your vehicle, and therefore its distance to travel. For example, an expedition by ship from New York will take about a dozen days, while an expedition from California will take approximately one month.
There are different ways from Lakewood Washington Auto Transport to transport your vehicle from the United States to all over the world. Here are the different options we offer.
Conventional transportation by container
This is the option most commonly chosen by our customers. We can load up to 6 vehicles per container, depending on their size. This type of Car Shipping in the United States is also suitable for non-road vehicles. If you have plans to restore a vintage car, for example, conventional container import will be the best choice.
In addition, we regularly transport our warehouses to the port. We can offer you lower rates for bulk imports.
You can save money on your import costs by choosing a container that already contains vehicles from other customers. For high-value vehicles, we can of course offer you an individual container (6 or 12 meters long depending on the size of the vehicle).
If you are importing your vehicle because you are moving to other country, we also offer to load your personal effects on board. A precise inventory will then be established.
Roll-on / Roll-off transport
Unlike conventional ship conveyance, with Roll-on / Roll-off (or Ro-Ro) your vehicle is loaded and unloaded from the ship while traveling on a moving ramp. This shipping method will not be suitable for non-rolling vehicles.
In addition, if you move from the USA to other country, you will not be able to attach your belongings to the shipment. Ports that host Ro-Ro ships and shipping rates vary. If you want to opt for this shipping method, ask us for a precise quote.
Air Freight Transport
It is the fastest way to import a car from the United States. Delivery times are estimated at between 2 and 10 days, depending on the administrative procedures to be carried out and customs formalities. If you need to pick up your vehicle as soon as possible, we advise you to choose air freight.

We take care of your vehicle
Throughout the trip, we make every effort to ensure that your vehicle travels smoothly. We have all the necessary equipment so that it is delivered to you in the best conditions. Thus, we build a custom reinforced frame for each vehicle, so that it is well attached in the container and does not move during shipping.
We do not use any forklift for loading, to avoid damaging the sills and the underside of the vehicle. Your vehicle will be delivered to you in the same condition as it is when we pick it up.
