Ship Car To Graciosa Island
🇪🇸 Spain, (ES)

Graciosa Island or the White Island as it’s commonly referred to as is the northernmost of the Islands of Azores. It is a volcanic island which is dominated by a 1.6 kilometer wide central caldera or Caldeira located in the southeast part of the island.

If you are planning to move to this panoramic destination infused with white sand beaches and palm trees, you might want to consider having your own vehicle. Having your own vehicle is going to bring you tons of convenience and you wouldn’t be dependent on the public transportation services. Thus, when you are looking to stay here for an extended period, it is important to contact an international auto shipping company as it is extremely difficult to navigate through the import process on your own.

Summary of All Import Regulations.

First off, it would be a good idea to check with the Azores Embassy in Washington D.C. if you are going to ship your vehicle there. This is going to provide you with insight on the most current import regulations. As it is with any international import, you would have to submit a wide range of documents and to complete a lot of procedures at the same time. Some of these include:

  • Bill of Lading.
  • Purchase invoice for the vehicle – you should have bought it at least 6 months before the import.
  • VAT NR.
  • Title document.
  • Insurance policy.
  • Proof of address in the Azores Island.
  • Passport.
  • Direcçao Geral dos Impostos Approval letter.
  • Valid driver’s license.

The import duties are 16% based on the price of the car as well as a VAT that has to be also taken care of. You are allowed to keep your old US license plates for as long as 6 months after the import and then you have to apply for new ones at the office of Direcção-Geral de Viação. The officials are going to perform emission and roadworthiness test and if there are discrepancies you’d have to make the necessary modifications. These are the fees which are associated with your import.

Shipping Methods.

There are two common methods which are available for you when you want to get your car delivered to the Graciosa Island. The A-1 Auto Transport could help you out with picking the best one. The methods include:

RORO option is when your vehicle is driven on to the shipping deck where it is going to be stabilized in position. This method is generally the preferred one as it is the cheapest but it leaves the car fully exposed to weather conditions.

The second method is container shipping where you can rent a container of different sizes depending on your particular vehicle. You can store other items within the container provided there is enough space and you can share containers with other people in order to spare some expenses. You will have to hire someone to put the car in the container and to fasten it up with while in transit.

Satisfied Customers

“The plan was to ship my car from California to Utah. I went through nearly 20 quotes after using an auto shipping site which linked to a bunch of brokers. Finally, I found A1 Auto Transport, a company with its own trucks with great reviews. I was sold. Joe was very competent, gave off the impression he’d done this a million times, and it really showed throughout the transport. He listened to my request carefully, offered me several options, stayed in touch during the transport, and made sure I was happy with everything. Overall, a great company which I would definitely recommend to others!”

“I’m so glad I met you Joe!! A truly fortunate experience. Having to transport a car to Minnesota, I was stunned to see the company, who was supposed to take care of it, just vanish. I couldn’t reach them anymore, like they went bankrupt overnight. However, I was lucky enough to not pay anything, so I simply researched some more until I found A1 Auto Transport. Joe answered my call the first time and we soon agreed on a date and a quote. Unfortunately, I got caught up in work and forgot about it. The order was not confirmed, so Joe must’ve thought I changed my mind. I called him the next day and arranged for a new date. This time, I made a note on my phone and it went well. I replied to his email this time, and the driver arrived at a parking lot down the street on time, as promised. The driver was nice enough to not mention my previous mistake. He delivered my car in just 3 days. Upon careful inspection, there were no scratches or damage done to it during transport. Joe was there along with the driver and they both waited patiently until I was satisfied. Thanks!”

“Mark, I'm gratified when companies take customer service seriously. Please feel free to share the important fact that my experience with A-1 was not particularly extraordinary'and that is the whole point! Things happened the way they were supposed to happen, no muss, no fuss. A friendly driver and courteous pick up folks. Picked up right on schedule. The ability to track my car was great because I could 'guesstimate' when it might arrive and plan accordingly. Now then, you should also know that I chose A-1 because of E-Bay. Never underestimate the power of positive feedback. I did not purchase the service through E-Bay, but I darn sure checked out your feedbacks! And they were very good. In addition, your web site is very user friendly and made my reservations a breeze. Plus, my car arrived in perfect condition. You and your entire staff are to be commended for making my experience routine. That's the goal! Thanks again everybody. Bob C. - Greenville, South Carolina”

“After my dad’s passing, I decided to return to Rhode Island to support my mom. The last company I used to move a car was late by 3 days, so I went to the web once more and did my research. I went through several websites and asked for quotes, including A1 Auto Transport. It wasn’t the cheapest nor was it the most expensive company of the bunch, but I knew not to rely on price for these things. I’ve heard of quite a few scams from companies with really low rates. So, I called each one to get a better feel for them. To my questions, some of them got flustered, others didn’t know how to answer and said they’ll get back to me at a later date. One guy whom I pestered a bit too much simply hung up. But with A1 Auto Transport, it was a different story. Joe answered the first time and had no problem answering my questions. It was like he already knew I would ask them. His quote was also reasonable, so I asked him to arrange for a truck to pick up my car. My experience with A1 Auto Transport was a resounding success! Thank you Joe for the stellar service!”

“Hi, Nicole: I just want to let you know how I am impressed with your company's efficiency in scheduling and customer service. The local transportation carrier just picked up my newly purchased car yesterday in Spring Lake, NJ and it is on the way to VA. I was told it will be a door-to-door delivery. Since I am still out of town and won't be back to Glen Allen, VA until 1/2/2006. I was wondering whether I may schedule the delivery date any time after 1/2. Thank you for the timely assistance from both you and Teresa, which made the transaction and delivery so smooth at the short notice in the holiday season. Your company's commitment to quality and customer satisfaction are really top-notched. Happy New Year and Regards.”
