Ship Car To Genoa

 

Genoa is well known as the largest economic center of Italy. While steel was a predominant industry for many years, the city has now moved forward with shipbuilding, engineering, petrochemicals, technology and agriculture. Many of the top manufacturers of Italy are based in Genoa and thousands of people worldwide move to the city each year for both business as well as personal reasons. Both Clemson University and Florida International University in the United States have a small campus in Genoa for students to attend school in Italy. If you have moved to Genoa you will most likely need your own car to get to work or school. While there is public transportation, it can be expensive to use it for your daily work or errands. Shipping a car overseas may seem an overwhelming thing to do, but with the help of a professional automobile transport company your car will be with you in no time at all.

Steps to Having Your Car in Genoa.

The first thing you will need to do will be to contact the auto transport company and provide details about your car for an international shipping quote. When you give the details of your car, you need to be as specific as possible especially if you have had alterations on your car that may have affected the size or weight of the vehicle. Your shipping agent needs to know everything about the car to ensure that the correct carrier is sent to pick it up for overseas transport. You’ll be asked for your driver’s license and social security number to verify your identity and will need to sign a Power of Attorney statement that will give the transporter legal access to transport the car for you. Your agent will explain the contents of the transport contract and will discuss the amounts of damage insurance available. While most policies will fully cover standard vehicles, you may need to add a new policy if you have a very expensive luxury car or a collectors car. You will also be filled in on the types of transport available for shipping your car. The methods you can choose from when relocating to Genoa, Italy are:

RORO Shipping–   RORO is the simplest method of international shipping available and is used by millions of people worldwide every day of the year. The best aspect of RORO is that your car is driven directly onto the ship at the exit port and driven off when it reaches the port in Genoa thus making this type of shipping overseas the fastest as well as the most affordable type of international shipping available. Cars, trucks, SUV’s, motorcycles, buses, construction and heavy machinery can all easily be loaded onto a RORO carrier.

Enclosed Shipping- Enclosed shipping is best suited for luxury, classic and collectors cars, motorcycles, ATV’s and personal items. Large shipping containers are utilized to transport automobiles, personal and household goods and much more. The cost of the container will cost more than shipping with RORO, but it is an exceptional type of transport when you need extra security for high value motor vehicles or when you need to completely relocate all of your household goods at one time.

Your agent will be able to explain all the details of the methods of transport, and can help you with door to door pick-up and delivery to and from the shipping ports.

Motor Vehicle Registration.

Motor vehicle registration is mandatory for all automobiles legally on the roads in Italy. For customs you will need to pay taxes and duties but Italian customs is not extremely strict when it comes to importing a personal motor vehicle. If you have owned your car for at least one year, you can take an exemption from paying the import duty fees.  All residents of Genoa, whether temporary or permanent residents, must apply for a tax code number and pay Italian taxes when living in the city. You will need to go to the local Motor Vehicle office to register your car and receive Italian license plates to be able to drive your car once it has been imported to Genoa. It’s very important that you have the correct paperwork when registering your car. You will need the following:

For New Cars:

  • Vehicle Registration.
  • Driver’s License (Foreign or Domestic) If the license is not an Italian license it must be accompanied with a translation written in Italian.
  • Commercial Invoice.
  • Tax Code Number or proof that the tax code number has been applied for.

For Used Cars:

  • Driver’s License (Foreign or Domestic) If the license is not an Italian license it must be accompanied with a translation written in Italian.
  • Certificate of Residency whether temporary or permanent.
  • T2119 Application.
  • NP2B registration.
  • Sales Invoice (Original Bill of Sale).
  • Motor Vehicle Registration as well as a copy of the registration.
  • Certificate of Commerce if the car is owned by a corporation, business or company and must include a statement with the name of the person who will be driving the vehicle in Genoa.
  • Tax Code Number or proof that the tax code number has been applied for

Your automobile transport agent will be a valuable source of information to you for everything that is necessary to relocate your car, know which documents you will need to present to customs and for vehicle registration, and for having your car picked up and delivered to you in Genoa. For information on export laws or travel advisories when moving to Italy, you can check with U.S. Customs and they can provide you with detailed information pertaining to those inquiries.
