Importing a car from the USA to Australia can often be a difficult process, and choosing the appropriate shipping service option is important to ensure you’re getting the best option available. Shipping cars from USA to Australia is a skill that VSA International Freight Management Pty Ltd has honed through years of experience of importing American cars into Australia, making us one of the most trusted American car importers in the country. Generally speaking, if the cargo unit fits within the walls of a shipping container then look to utilise a dedicated container or even better, a shared container. The internal dimensions of a 40’ container are approximately 12.0 metres long, 2.3 metres wide and 2.8 metres high, also considering door opening restrictions, offering a viable solution to import cars from the USA without breaking the bank.

The Most Efficient Way to Import Cars From the USA

Here at VSA, we are packing shared 40’ container units ex Los Angeles, Charleston and New York to Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and even Fremantle every week, using only the fastest and most direct services to import cars from the USA. A more reliable, faster or economical way of importing cars from USA to Australia doesn’t exist and we are working with California’s biggest automotive exporter and pooling resources and routings to combine for superbly utilised consolidations of cars, bikes, boats, jet skis, mowers, parts etc, making us one of the best American car importers Australia has to offer. This smart consolidating and superb buying is further enhanced by our joint pioneering of the “R-RAK” unique metal racking system when importing a car from USA to Australia, a safe and secure way of double stacking cargo inside a container, using an easy block and tackle method of hoisting and lowering to import cars from USA. This eliminates the possible collapse of wooden packaging, is more environmentally friendly and creates more space inside ensuring 4 cars to a container, which also significantly reduces the cost of shipping a car from USA to Australia. Have a look at the video on the home page of our website to see for yourself. With this unique system in place, it enables us to ship a standard motor vehicle from USA to Australia which attributes to 25% of a full container cost based on 4 cars being able to fit. 4WD utilities and similar vehicles that take up half of a container are costed as such if their size does not allow a load above. Motor bikes are a lesser unit cost again and parts are charged per cubic metre. If you have a specific requirement for importing your car, feel free to contact us about any unusual shapes and we can tailor a special rate that works loosely around this simple concept.

Vehicle Shipping Australia is proud to be one of the most reliable methods of shipping cars from USA to Australia, and consider ourselves the best American car importers for Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and more. There are some notable variations to the “what fits in a container” where we can cradle on an angle marine craft of just over 2.5 metres wide and still have them fit. We also have the ability to pack up to 2.8-metre-wide marine units into containers on their side. Larger units like trailers, RVs and fifth wheelers can be cost effectively loaded onto “flat rack” open sided units, pay an over-width surcharge and still be ahead of the lesser reliable RO/RO car carrier services do exist when importing cars from the US. For units originating from Canada, sometimes it works to bring units out via our Californian gateway, however if border costs prohibit, we have reliable shipping options from the Great Lakes hubs and also from the west coast gateway port of Vancouver, with our cross-border connections making us the best method of importing American cars to Australia.
