You cannot possibly get an exact price on services without providing tidbits of information to the transporter about the vehicle and the reason for shipping. The shipping process differs for each customer and there are many things that affect the final charges for shipping a car to Malta from the U.S.
What we do know is that auto shipping services are known for their cost efficiency and reasonable service rates.
The cost of the transport is determined after some information is released to the transport company. Usually, you can get a quote by phone or online within minutes. Give them accurate information so that they can get the truest quote. By calling the transport companies and asking questions while you gather quotes, you can gain more insight.
Import Taxes and Duties are Extra Costs.
Learning of all the relevant regulations stated in Malta’s import policy can be daunting. This is when your transporter will become useful yet again during the shipping process. They will make sure that your car not only complies with the laws of the nation but that you understand the exact amount that must be paid out in taxes before your car can be shipped over. The Embassy of Malta has all the information and facts you need in regard to the import policy and tax rates.
The rates for auto import taxes and duties in Malta are much lower than other countries. All of the import duties, sales tax, and other small fees must be paid. After you pay off all the taxes, show the receipt to Customs when you go to provide them with the other forms of proof needed for import approval. Your vehicle will also need to undergo an evaluation if it is used.
