Ship Car To Bordeaux
πŸ‡«πŸ‡· France, (FR)

The wine industry’s capital city, Bordeaux is a port at Garonne River in France. It has the highest number of historic buildings apart from Paris and is situated in the southern France.

In case you are moving here, you are sure to miss having your personal vehicle to explore the beautiful city or to commute to work. That is unless you import it from USA. However, vehicle imports require plenty of documentation and adhering to the French regulations. Additionally, it helps to learn more about the traffic and driving rules before you actually start driving as the French laws are slightly different from the ones in USA.

As per EU laws, the emission laws are stringent and US-made cars and other vehicles might require modifications. To see if you need to get your vehicle modified, discuss it with A1 Auto Transport service. We have been shipping many vehicles to France over the last two decades and will be able to assist you with all the procedures.

Documents for verification before import.

Verification and safety checks are an important part of the import with the U.S Customs and Border Protection and the French Customs Department. Before your vehicle is shipped from USA and before it arrives in Bordeaux, these documents are required to be submitted and verified if you don’t want any delays.

  • Social security number.
  • Driving license.
  • Vehicle insurance.
  • Title and registration.
  • Proof of Residence.
  • Passport of the owner.
  • Purchase invoice of the car.
  • Certificate of Vehicle Conformity.

You will need to decide whether you need the door to port services of A1 Auto Transport service or intend driving your car to be dropped off at the nearest port in USA. You can contact A1 Auto Transport to find the most affordable solution to the vehicle shipping services.

You have the option of shipping your vehicle using RORO or Container shipping which turn out to be the most practical ways to import your vehicle to Bordeaux. Container shipping allows you to ship your personal belongings along with the car in the 20 or 40 feet sealed containers while RORO only allows an empty vehicle to be shipped. However, RORO is the cheapest way to ship your vehicles.

Advance planning is needed.

As verification and other procedures take time and the vehicle sent by freight shipping takes about 2 to 3 weeks to reach Bordeaux, it is best to plan in advance. It is essential to take care of all documentation and that the vehicle adheres to the emission and other eligibility criteria. Another important aspect to consider is submission of the French Control Certificate. This is only needed if the vehicle that you are shipping is more than 4 years old. You are only allowed to ship if the vehicle is within the first six months after the completion of four years.

It is important to get your vehicle registered within 4 months after the custom clearances are availed. Only after that you can get the French licenses number plates. To get more information about the import duties, regulations and laws, contact the Embassy of France.
