Gori is located in the eastern part of Georgia which is the capital of Shida Kartli and the main district. Gori is approximately 47 miles west of the capital of Georgia, Gori. It's better to import your vehicle than it is to buy a new one there in Georgia as they are very expensive.
Importing your vehicle from the USA will avoid dealing with any language barriers when you rely on public transportation and the overcrowded system that many people use.
Importing your vehicle is simple to do since there are no car manufacturers located in Georgia. Spare parts needed for your vehicle may also be easily accessible too. A1 Auto Transport can assist you in transporting your vehicle to Georgia in a very simple process.
Obeying rules and regulations of importing.
You will need to make sure that the import is legal and valid throughout the process. In order to do this, you will need to provide lots of documentation which includes:
- Bill of sale.
- Car Insurance.
- Clear title.
- Vehicle purchase invoice that includes the details on the engine capacity.
- Import permit.
- Work permit.
- Passport and photo ID.
Vehicles being imported are subject to a 12% custom duty fee and an additional 18% VAT will be added to the charges. Georgia Customs Authority will consider the CIF when determining the amount owed for your import. If you want to live here for about a year, you will be able to import your vehicle on a temporary basis or extending your stay for another year. Importing temporarily will not include any duty that must be paid but you will need to provide a bank guarantee of the amount that totals the 18% VAT for the duration that your vehicle is in Gori. If you want to import your vehicle for a permanent stay, you will need to pay all taxes and duties that are required before you are allowed to pick up your vehicle.
You will need to pay close attention to the cargo notification requirement that makes it mandatory that you report all vehicles and the cargo that is coming into Gori and any other city in Georgia. The Customs department must know that your import is due in 24-48 hours minimum before it actually arrives. If you don't alert customs of your pending arrival, you may be delayed in retrieving your vehicle. A1 Auto Transport knows how to avoid these delays and can help you. You can contact the Embassy of Georgia for more information about the recent laws.
Whether you need a quote for shipping your vehicle from the United States to Gori, Georgia or you need help in determining what the best shipping method will be, then you need to contact your shipping agent as soon as you know you will be importing. The most affordable way to ship your vehicle would be to use the Roll On/Roll-Off method. This involves your vehicle being driven onto the ship deck and parked in a bay where it is secured for the trip. Once it reaches the port in Georgia, it is driven off the ship. You cannot have any personal items inside the vehicle during transport.
If you own an expensive vehicle, you may not want to take the chance of placing it outside on the deck of a ship during transport. Or if you have personal items you want to send over with your vehicle then you may want to choose a more expensive means of shipping called container shipping. You will pay more but you will be able to ship more at one time. You can choose between a 20-foot container and a 40-foot container.
