Car Shipping Barreiro

Barreiro is located in Setubal District in Portugal and is one of the larger cities. Whether it is due to business or personal reasons, moving to Barreiro can be fun and exciting.

  • The vehicle you import can only be used by yourself and your family.
  • Your vehicle should be registered in your name.

Regulations to Follow for Importing.

There are two ways to ship your vehicle to Barreiro; Roll On/ Roll Off and container shipping. You can choose the one that best suits you by determining your needs and your budget. You will need to clean the car completely out before you ship. If not, your vehicle may be quarantined when it reaches the port at Portugal.

The Roll On/ Roll Off method of shipping is the most chosen method of shipping anywhere in the world because it doesn't cost as much as the container shipping does. With this method, the vehicle is directly driven onto the deck of the ship and secured in a particular bay assigned to you. It's important to note that you cannot leave any personal items inside the vehicle and you cannot leave any gas in the air conditioning unit. When the ship docks at Lisbon, your vehicle will be driven off of the ship and turned over to customs for clearance. If you choose the container shipping method, your vehicle is loaded and unloaded onto a ship's deck by way of crane. The container sizes you can choose from are twenty foot or forty foot. This method of shipping can help you maintain the overall beauty of your car, especially if you are importing a classic or luxury.

It's not a requirement to register your vehicle with the Portuguese authorities as long as your vehicle is imported temporarily which means only for 6 months. After this time has expired, you will need to retrieve a import permit that will be issued by the Portuguese transport Authority and you will then need to submit your vehicle for emission tests and roadworthiness testing as well. You will need to make any modifications they required as a result of the inspections in order to meet the standards of driving on the Portuguese highway. All taxes and fees will also need to be paid for before your vehicle can be legal. You can find out more about this by contacting the Portuguese Customs and Excise Department.

Registering your vehicle.

Before your vehicle can be considered for driving in Portugal on a permanent basis, there are a few rules and regulations that must be adhered to. You must first apply for a residency card from the Portuguese Immigration Authorities. A car or motorcycle that is imported will need to conform to the Portuguese road standards or Euro emission standards, before it can be registered. This will depend on the vehicle's age, make, and place of origin. If you are bringing in a classic or luxury vehicle, these are slightly different than the inspections and regulations of a standard vehicle. In fact, it is more complicated because the inspection centers have more work to do on these types of vehicles to ensure that they are up to modern safety standards.

You may also want to find out the rules and regulations for obtaining license plates. If you import a new vehicle from the United States, you will need to pay the VAT. However, if you are importing a used vehicle, you will not need to pay a VAT unless you plan to sell your car within the first year of importing it. It is very important that you register your vehicle in order to carry the All-in-one card which covers your insurance policy, registration, and your log book.

If you are driving around Barreiro, you will need this card in your vehicle at all times. Before you obtain your car, you will need to submit all the documents requested by the Portuguese Authorities. You will be able to find assistance on this to help you navigate through the procedures. It's also a good idea to be aware of the driving rules and regulations of the Portugal authorities. You can contact the Embassy of Portugal to learn more.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

...my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
