Importation Duties and Taxes.
A1 Auto Transport Service will assist you in determining how much your shipping charges will be. You know that you will have the freight charge, but you may not be aware of additional charges such as vehicle insurance, import duties, and custom taxes. Romanian regulations also charge a maximum of 17% custom duty and 24% VAT on imports. These taxes will be collected based on the value as well as the total price of your vehicle. Taxing a standard sized sedan will be taxed less than a luxury SUV. You can refer to Title 19 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations for more information.
Saving money even on importing a vehicle is important. For that reason, you may want to choose the Roll On, Roll Off method of shipping. This method involves your car being driven onto the deck of the ship, secured inside of a bay and after reaching the port in Romania, it will be driven off the ship. There are a few things you will need to do in order to prepare your vehicle for the Roll On Roll Off method. First, steam clean your vehicle otherwise it will be quarantined once it reaches the port in Romania. You will also need to remove all of the air conditioning gas. The only items allowed in your car are the floor mats, the car jack, and the spare key. Learn more about these regulations at the Embassy of Romania.
Container shipping is another shipping method you can choose from. This method offers a 20 foot or 40 foot container that will allow you to load your vehicle with your car and all of your belongings. Once it’s loaded, it is then sealed and lifted by a crane to the deck of the ship. It is unloaded basically the same way that it is loaded.
You will need to be aware of all other regulations when importing, that’s why it’s beneficial to work with A1 Auto Transport Service. We can provide additional services such as port-to-port or even door-to port services for your convenience. Your needs are customized to suit you. It’s also a good idea to study up on the laws and rules of driving in a foreign country as soon as you learn that you are traveling there.
