Prior to Shipping.
Before you ship your car you are going to remove any external parts – if you choose to ship with RORO. This method would require you to steam clean the vehicle from the inside in order to avoid any unwanted quarantine delays. Furthermore, you have to empty it out of any other personal belongings and leave nothing but your floor mats, car jack, spare keys and spare tire. You should also remove the air conditioning gasses and leave only ¼ gas tank in. The other option in front of you would be to go for the Container shipping method which is slightly more expensive but it’s also slower. However, you can ship as many belongings as you want and your car would be thoroughly protected from the elements. Aside from that, you are going to need to sign a Power of Attorney if you are not there to pick up your vehicle.
When you arrive you are going to need to take care of the customs duties and all of the adjacent taxes. You would also have to abide by the local regulations and rules if you want to ensure a smooth stay. You have to apply for local license and registration as well. Familiarizing yourself with the local rules of the traffic is also going to be highly beneficial. If you have any further need for information you can call the Embassy of Lithuania in Washington, D.C.
