- Car antennas have to be retracted or removed.
- Remove all CD players/electronic accessories.
- Garage door/gate openers inside the vehicle not allowed.
- Luggage racks, ski or bike holders have to be removed.
- Only allowed to keep car jack, spare tire, extra set of keys.

It is important to have the documents in order so that the shipping is completed on time. You will need to complete the custom regulations and pay the duty when the car is shipped to Banja Luka. Here is a list of essential documents that has to be submitted:
- Car title.
- Registration Certificate.
- Proof of ownership- passport.
- 21% daily rate after documents verification.
- Insurance certificate.
- Signed Power of Attorney, if owner is not present to take delivery.
The vehicle inspections are done before you will be handed over the vehicle. Additionally there is no import duty if you have owned and used the vehicle for at least 6 months.
The ports in Bosnia allow both RORI and container shipping making it easy to budget for the vehicle transportation. At A1 Auto Transport service, we will be able to help you select the best shipping option for you. However, both the methods require pre-shipping so after it has been completed; the vehicle can be loaded on the freight ship.
- RORO: An acronym of Roll-on/Roll-Off method, this is the cheapest shipping option. When you have to ship using this method, the specific regulations need to be followed. In this method, the vehicle is driven on the ship, harnessed and secured on the deck for minimum damage during transit.
- Container shipping: This is an expensive method as you need to hire a 20 feet or 40 feet container for shipping your vehicle. But it works out for luxury or antique cars that you need moved. It is an added layer of protection for the vehicle as it is enclosed in strong metal containers for shipping. You are allowed to keep your household items and other personal goods within the same container but not within the vehicle.
After your car reaches Banja Luka, there are custom duties and import taxes to be paid so that your vehicle can be delivered and driven in the city legally. You are required by law to apply for local license plates within a few weeks. To get more information about Bosnia’s driving rules and regulations, you can contact the Embassy of Bosnia in USA.
