As your car enters Korea it will begin the customs clearance process. Your car is then moved and unloaded in the port warehouse. From there we schedule delivery right to your door. Alternatively you can pick up your car at the warehouse in order to reduce costs. Our main ports of entry are Busan, Incheon, and Pyeongtaek.
To import a Car in South Korea, the owner will have to live in the country for at least one year. Another requirement is that you must own the vehicle for three months before you can ship. However, you cannot import a Japanese car into the country.
When you move to Korea, your car is classified as part of your household goods if you import within six months. This classification makes clearing customs moderately easier than shipping a car without it.
After you have your car make sure all necessary documentation is filed and enjoy your vehicle on the roads of Korea.
