If you want to import your vehicle to Serbia from the United States, you will need to follow some important rules and regulations. These rules and regulations may sound strict but they are not that bad. When you transport your own vehicle, you have the freedom to travel anywhere you want to across Europe. You won't need to depend on public transportation.
Before you begin the process of importing your vehicle to Serbia, you will need to contact a shipping company like A1 Auto Transport Service. When you use a shipping company, your vehicle will most likely make it to the designation on time and without complications, because we will handle the entire process and your vehicle will be delivered to a port.
Shipping Methods to Serbia.
You will have three different shipping methods to choose from when preparing your vehicle for delivery. Your choices are air, Roll On/ Roll Off, and container shipping.
Roll On/ Roll Off is the most commonly chosen method of shipping due to the cost. You can transport your vehicle by the Roll On/ Roll Off method only if your vehicle is completely cleaned out and ready. Your vehicle will be driven or rolled onto the deck of the ship and then rolled off once it reaches the port.
Container shipping is a great option to choose if you are transporting your personal items as well as your vehicle to Serbia. You will have the option of two different container sizes that you can place your car in and then fill it the rest of the way up with personal items.
Air shipping is another option for those who want to get their vehicle to Serbia fast. This method of shipping is very expensive so unless you have urgency, you may want to choose one of the other two options.
