Vehicle Import Process
OAI's vehicle importation process is tailored to be simple and easy to manage. If you're wondering what the importation process looks like, here is a breakdown of the steps that will get you started!
Step 1: Create an account
After completing the Import Request form you will be prompted to create an account. Creating an account is simple and requires just a few minutes of time. Your account allows us to communicate with you throughout the importation process. It also provides the customer a database to independently source a car.
Step 2: Inquiry Review
Our team will review your request and use the information provided to estimate a quote. This quote is inclusive of all taxes and fees associated with importation.
*Quote excludes transport of vehicle to port as this cost will vary based on location.
Step 3: Sourcing and Inspection
Sit back and relax while we handle the logistics of purchasing an international vehicle. Upon request, we will view and photograph the vehicle prior to purchase. These photos can be viewed within your personal account. You can expect continued communication with a member of our team throughout the entirety of this process.
Step 4: Collection and Transport
We will manage vehicle collection, payment in person on your behalf, and delivery to the nearest port. You will continue to be updated on the status of the vehicle along with photos throughout the process.
Step 5: Vehicle Arrival
Once the vehicle has reached its destination country, we can arrange delivery to you, or assist you in the process of collecting the vehicle. Vehicles may also be collected directly from us in Baltimore, MD. or Richmond, VA.
Step 6: Documentation
Once the legal documents necessary to register the vehicle are received, everything will be mailed to you. Documents typically arrive a couple of weeks after the vehicle clears customs. Once you receive the documents, you will take the to your local DMV to register the vehicle in your state.
