Bergen in Norway is both the Municipality and City of Hordaland County on Bergen Peninsula. It is situated on the western coast. It is also the county's administrative center. Norway is enjoying a rapid growth with a constant increase in the number of tourists entering the country as well as the expatriate population. Thus, it is natural that shipping rules are quite efficient and stringent to ensure all regulations are met. However, before you ship your vehicle, it helps to know about the weather patterns because based upon it you can schedule your vehicle shipping. The summers are the best time as in winters due to the freezing temperatures, delays can occur.

Before you can go ahead and undertake the shipping of your car, make sure that the related documents are in order. The customs department of Norway requires specific documents to be submitted before the vehicle can be cleared. These include:
- origin country registration.
- ownership proof.
- Clear car title.
- Owners passport and residence permit.
- invoice of vehicle purchase.
Those looking for more information about the duties and taxes can be checked at Customs department of Norway. It clearly shows all the restrictions and limitations that you will need to adhere to, for transporting their car. Before you can go ahead with the shipping, you should remove all the movable, non-permanent parts associated with the vehicle. Delivery processes are tedious and non-adherence to the rules can delay the process.
That is why working with A1 Auto Transport service which has over 20 years of experience in international shipping helps. We recommend that you clean the interiors thoroughly. This is especially essential when you choose the Roll on-Roll off method of shipping. Steam cleaning the interiors is the best way to ensure that not even a speck of dirt remains. This way, you will also avoid quarantine of your shipment when entering Norway. In case, the Customs find anything within the car they will first send it to the quarantine section followed by the cleaning services. Only after that will they return it to the shipping department to continue with the transport.
Have you removed all the A/C gases from your vehicle prior to shipment? This is another necessity. Those unsure regarding the shipping status of the vehicle should refer to Title 19 with US Federal Regulations Code. First, you will need to transport it from the US city or state to the port from where it will continue with shipping to Norway. Sometimes, officials may allow you to take it to the local port, that way you can keep the overall costs down.
After your vehicle arrives in Bergen, there are certain additional formalities to consider. These are:
- customs duty payment with shipment fees and taxes.
- application followed by the testing of modifications to the vehicle when needed.
- plate registration ID followed by approval from the transport authority.
There are usually two types of ways to send your vehicle to Bergen by freight shipping. These are RORO and container shipping. RORO or Roll-on and Roll-Off method is more commonly used as it is cheaper than container shipping. Your vehicle is harnessed onto the deck and to stop pilferage, it has to be stripped of all personal accessories. The vehicle is driven on and rolled off at the delivery port. While the other method of container shipping requires hiring space in a 20 feet or 40 feet enclosed container. The car along with your other goods is sealed within the container and shipped. At the port of delivery, it is handed over to the owner after the formalities are completed.
