Car Shipping Florence

Moving to Florence, also known as the birthplace of the Renaissance, can be a time of excitement as well as extreme planning to ensure the move goes smoothly. Florence is a great place for employment relocation due to the major industrial centers including chemicals, food, rubber and furniture manufacturing. Locally you will also see many shops set up for antiques and crafts, beautiful glassware, leather, jewelry and art. Florence also has excellent annual weather including hot summers and mild, yet damp, winters. Driving throughout the city may become a little hectic from time to time but once you figure out the driving patterns of others on the roadways, driving will be second nature to you just as it may be in the United States. You will want to watch out when approaching red lights or stop signs however, as many motorists fail to stop when they feel it is clear to go.

How to Ship a Car to Florence.

Shipping a car is easily done when you contact a reputable transporter who has the experience necessary for overseas automobile shipping. A1 Auto Transport is the leader in the auto transport industry and will safely and reliably transport your motor vehicle from the United States to Florence, Italy quickly and affordably. When you call for a shipping quote you will need to provide information about your car such as the make, model and year of manufacture. You’ll also need to let the agent know if you have had anything modified on the car that would increase (or decrease) the size or weight. Scheduling transport must be accurate so that the properly sized carrier is available to pick the car up as well as transport it overseas. You will need to provide your driver’s license and social security number for identification purposes. Prior to receiving a total quote for shipping you will also need to determine the way that your car will be transported.

Move Car Florence

Your agent will assist you with this, but the ways to transport a car overseas are:

RORO Shipping- For shipping motor vehicles of all types and sizes, RORO is the most common way to ship a car around the globe and is used daily by millions of automobile shippers. RORO means Roll-On Roll-Off and just as the name, the practice is the same. Motor vehicles and other items that may be crated are rolled onto the carrier vessel for transport and rolled off when they reach their destination. RORO vessels can carry hundreds of vehicles at one time, thus making the cost as low as possible for each customer using the transport ship at any given time. RORO is a safe and reliable way to have your car shipped to Florence from the United States.

Enclosed Shipping-Also known as container shipping, this type of shipping is the preferred way to move expensive and delicate automobiles and other shipping package. Large steel shipping containers are used to safely transport motor vehicles in a protected, often padded and climate controlled, environment during overseas travel. Your automobile will be loaded inside of the container and then lifted onto the carrier for transport. You’ll need to include a packing list when using a container so customs will be able to verify all contents of the shipment when they complete inspections. Enclosed shipping is more expensive than RORO but it is the best way to ship when you have a luxury car or need to move other items as well.

Once you determine the type of shipping that you will need, your agent will explain the transport contract, damage protection and automobile shipping preparation to you. The agent will also give you a total shipping price once all information has been gathered and the decision on transport has been made.  Once the car has been scheduled for pick-up and delivery you will have the ease of door to door transport to make everything convenient for you when relocating to Florence.

Customs and Registration.

Once your car arrives at the seaport in Florence, you will need to be present for the customs check for clearance. The agent inspecting your car will need your driver’s license, automobile title and a tax code number that you can apply for once in Florence. You’ll be required to pay taxes and duties on the motor vehicle you are importing. Both new and used cars may be imported to Florence and there are no restrictions on the vehicle age. You can however, be exempted from paying import duties if the car has been owned by you for at least one year or longer. All cars in Italy, whether local automobiles or imported vehicles, must have an Italian license plate to be able to drive on the streets. If you do not register your car and obtain local plates, you will not be able to drive. For registration of your motor vehicle you will need the following documentation at the motor vehicle office:

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!
