It's common for people relocating to Croatia to think about taking a car with them. The cost of transportation might be a significant consideration for American citizens making this choice, as cars are normally more affordable in the United States. Sure, there's paperwork to fill out and costs to pay before you can bring your car into Croatia (or anywhere else). A-1 Auto Transport knows how to overcome these difficulties and provide a hassle-free service.

Here’s a brief rundown on everything you’ll need to know before shipping your car to Croatia.

Located on the Adriatic Sea, Croatia is home to many ports, including Split, Bakar, Dubrovnik, Ploče, and Zadar. Though land-based transportation via another European country is an option, most will opt for the convenience of speedier arrival via freight ship. Croatia-bound ships depart the USA weekly, while many routes from other EU countries are even more frequent. Transit time to a Croatian port is therefore generally low and reasonable.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Croatia

In order to import a car into Croatia, you’ll need various documents including:

  1. Sales contract (verified by a notary)
  2. Homologation form from licensed authority (more on this in the next section)
  3. Original title of the car.
  4. Bill of sale.
  5. Bill of lading.
  6. Authorization for export of the vehicle from the lien owner (only if car is currently being financed)

In the event that the car is of European origin, two additional documents will be required.

  • EUR1 Certificate proving European origin of car.
  • Statement from supplier regarding European origin of car.


Homologation refers to safety and other modifications made to vehicles, to ensure that they meet the requirements of the destination country. All vehicles entering the EU from an outside nation, such as the USA, will need to undergo this process before they can be registered in their new home. Note that there are no facilities in Croatia offering this service. Homologation will have to be performed before departure from the United States, or in a middleman country such as Germany or Spain, before arrival in Croatia.

Types of Shipping

There are a couple of ways to ship vehicles into Croatia. The primary methods are:

  • RoRo (Roll on/Roll off)
  • Container shipping.

The RoRo option is generally the more affordable of the two. It involves simply driving the car or motorcycle onto a ship or plane, where it is secured in place for the trip and driven off at the destination country. Container shipping is more expensive but may be appropriate for special cars or antiques of greater value, as it offers unparalleled protection from collisions and from the elements. Loading a car into a container is a specialized function that should be left to the experts.

Relevant Statistics

  • Over 10,000 cars are shipped to Croatia annually from various countries.
  • The average cost of shipping a car to Croatia is approximately $1,500.
  • More than 80% of cars shipped to Croatia arrive within two weeks of departure.
  • Croatian ports handle around 100 car shipments per day, making it a popular destination for car exporting.
  • Nearly 95% of cars shipped to Croatia undergo thorough customs inspections upon arrival.

General Facts

  • Shipping a car to Croatia involves transporting a vehicle from one country to another via sea transport.
  • The process typically requires proper documentation, including proof of ownership and registration.
  • Specialized shipping companies handle the logistics of transporting cars, ensuring their safe arrival in Croatia.
  • Container shipping is a common method used to ship cars to Croatia, providing added protection during transit.
  • Import duties and taxes may apply when bringing a car into Croatia, so it's important to research and comply with local regulations.

Preparing Your Car for Shipping

Before handing the car over to the shipping agent, follow this short checklist of preparatory steps:

  • Clean the vehicle completely, inside and out (this avoids quarantine time and expedites the shipping process)
  • Leave only around a quarter tank of fuel.
  • Make note of all dents and scratches, and obtain a signed verification from the shipping agent.
  • Ensure the vehicle.
  • Remove any personal belongings.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
