- RORO Shipping: This is the cheapest method available to the car owners looking to import their vehicles to Romania. Here the car will be driven upon the deck of the ship. The sea vessels contain ramp to facilitate this process. People prefer this method because it is both cost-effective and convenient. In order to do away with any problems related to the authorities during the transport process do not forget to steam clean it prior to shipping.
You are required to remove the gas related to the air-conditioning system. This way, you can help speed up delivery process of the vehicle at Cluj. Otherwise, the custom officials will quarantine your vehicle and send it to the cleaning services before bringing it back to the shipping facility.

You can deliver your vehicle to the depot or A1 Auto Transport representatives will collect it from your home. Based upon individual price point abilities you can choose a container of 20 feet to 40 feet for your car. You can consider adequate space to keep the personal belongings as well.
