Car Shipping Daugavpils

Scenically located on the banks of the Daugava River, the Latvian city of Daugavpils is the second largest city in the country. It is a major industrial hub and major railway junction, ensuring employment for both locals and foreigners in the city. Strategically situated between Minsk and Riga, the location makes it a center of economic and cultural activities. Additionally there are many U.S based companies that oftentimes have employees working here. If you are living in Daugavpils or planning to move here for a few months or on a more permanent basis, you would be glad to have your own vehicle as public transport isn’t the best here.

It is important to know about the rules and regulations in Latvia when you start planning on shipping your vehicle here. Your vehicle will be shipped from the local US port to Port at Riga and then after the delivery has been taken, the car will be driven down to Daugavpils. To facilitate the vehicle transit, it is good to work with A1 Auto Transport service that has been in the international auto shipping industry for over 20 years.  We understand the complex procedures, documentations and ways to get the custom cleared at the Latvia ports. To know the details about export-import taxes and limitations, contact the Latvian Customs authorities.

Important motor vehicle regulations in Latvia.

Before you ship your vehicle to Daugavpils, it is essential to know about the vehicle regulations in Latvia. These include:

  • Vehicles imported to the country are allowed 12- month temporary, import status.
  • Used vehicles that are over 7 years old are taxed an additional 18% VAT.
  • Below 7 years have a 10% tax and 10% VAT applicable on import.
  • Vehicles are registered in the shipper’s name.
  • The custom tax will depend upon the CIF and the market value of the car.

Documentation needed.

International shipping has to comply with essential documentation that is submitted at the domestic US port and the Riga port. You need to file these documents:

  • Original Bill of vehicle purchase.
  • International Driving Permit.
  • Import License.
  • Owner’s Driving License.

Methods of Shipping to Latvia.

There are different methods of shipping your vehicle. The fastest yet the most expensive method is through air shipping but it is too expensive. Usually most people prefer the Roll-on/Roll-Off (RORO) method as it is cost effective. You only pay for the amount of space your vehicle takes, as it is secured and harnessed along with other vehicles on the deck. However, due to the affordable price and open parking, you are not allowed to leave any accessories or personal goods inside it. The vehicle has to be steam cleaned and air conditioning gas has to be removed. However, if you have an expensive vehicle or a vintage car or need to send your household goods along with the car, then container shipping is a better option. Your car will be secured and harnessed to minimize movement during transit and the other goods placed within the same 20 feet or 40 feet container. This is more expensive yet safer method of shipping.

To get more information about the shipping process and custom duties, you can contact the U.S Border and Protection Agency or get in touch with the Embassy of Latvia in USA.

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!
