Bulgaria is a part of the European Union, and therefore, it follows the same rules as the other EU countries when it comes to the importation of cars. You will need to clear the vehicle through customs for Bulgaria, following all regulations; pay the value added tax for the vehicle; take out insurance; apply for verification of origin; have the vehicle inspected; test the roadworthiness; register your vehicle. While the import process is relatively the same for all EU countries, there are some specific rules and guidelines you will need to follow when importing/exporting your car into Bulgaria.

Customs

Bulgarian Customs requires all motor vehicles that are being imported into the country to be declared on a temporary import basis. In addition, the owner must pay a “guarantee” for the vehicle in order for it to be imported through Customs. The amount of this guarantee depends on the car’s specs: year, make, model, year of first registration, bhp or kW of the engine, etc.

Note: If the car stays in the country for longer than a year, the temporary import will need to be renewed annually for the amount of time the car stays in Bulgaria.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Bulgaria

Just like with other EU countries, Bulgaria requires certain documentation before it can allow the importation process to begin. You will need to collect and present the following documents in order to import your vehicle into the country:

  1. Proof of registration.
  2. Proof of ownership.
  3. A valid visa.
  4. A Bulgarian national driver’s license.
  5. An international insurance policy.

Duties and Taxes

The amount of duties and taxes on an imported car differs depending on the car’s age, specifications, and country of origin. If the car is imported into the EU, it will not be subjected to import taxes, but if it is imported from outside the EU, the import duties could run upwards of 17% or more of the fair market value of the vehicle.

The standard value added tax (VAT) in Bulgaria is 20%. The VAT is calculated by determining the value of goods and adding in international shipping and insurance costs plus the import duty that may be due.

In addition, excise taxes may be added to the cost of importation if it is determined by the Bulgarian authorities after a vehicle inspection.

Note: Diplomats are allowed to import one vehicle completely tax and duty-free.

The Four Ways to Ship Your Cargo Internationally through A1

We have four different overseas transport methods available to our customer depending on what type of cargo they’re shipping to Bulgaria. Of course, these options vary in style as well as price. Our customer service representatives will assist you with your choices but here is a little description of what each one entails…

  • Lift On/Lift Off or more commonly called LoLo shipping, is one of the more popular forms of international transport. This method lifts your cargo using a crane to put it on and take it off of the ship.
  • Roll On/Roll Off is also known as RoRo Shipping. It is the cheapest way to transport heavy equipment or oversized cargo to another nation. Your equipment or large vehicle must roll onto and off of the ship using a ramp and therefore, must be operable.
  • Flat Rack shipping secures your cargo to a flat rack or metal frame and then places it on the top of the ship. In case of poor weather conditions, your cargo may be protected with shrink wrap.
  • Container shipping isn’t available for all oversized cargo unless it can fit into a 40ft container. This is the most secure form of transport but it does cost more. It will protect your cargo from outdoor elements such as bad weather or criminal activity.

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

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And 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.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!
★★★★★

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
