Greece is an ancient land that is often referred to as “the cradle of civilization.” It was here that drama, philosophy and the Olympic games began. The country has one of the world’s longest coastlines and boasts many beautiful beaches on both the mainland the islands. It has been a member of the European Union since 1981, and despite some recent financial difficulties, Greeks enjoy a high standard of living and a unique culture.

Popular Shipping Destinations

Move Car Greece

Visitors

If you plan to make an extended visit to Greece, you may exporting a vehicle--defined as a car, recreational vehicle or motorcycle--to Greece from your home country for a period of six months at no charge. You are not allowed to sell the car in Greece or even let anyone outside of your family drive it. When the vehicle enters the country, you will need to show proof of insurance and up-to-date registration and license plate tags from your home country. If the registration and tags expire while you are in Greece, you will need to apply to the customs office to get a temporary registration and license plate for the duration of your stay.

Moving to Greece

People who move to Greece permanently may import a vehicle--which is considered part of their household goods--without paying duty if you have a residency permit before entering the country. You may apply for a permit from the Greek consulate in your home country. This designation is available to those of  Greek descent, anyone who is married to a Greek citizen or someone having a work permit for a permanent job in Greece. You must have maintained a permanent residence outside of Greece for at least two years to qualify for this tax-free status.

In order to apply to bring your vehicle into the country duty-free, you must send a description of the car to the Greek consulate in your home country. You must have purchased the vehicle at least six months before importing it into the country. All new vehicles are subject to a Value Added Tax. You must pay registration and license plate fees for both new and used vehicles when they enter the country. If you bring a car into Greece duty-free, you are not allowed to sell it for at least a year, or you must pay duty on it. No one outside your immediate family may drive the car during that year.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Greece

There is a lot of paperwork involved in bringing a car to Greece. Because it is considered part of your household goods, and you must show proof of residency outside the country for at least two years, you will need to provide these documents:

Best Car Shipping Company Greece
  1. Income tax returns or W2 forms.
  2. Property tax  or rent receipts.
  3. Proof of past employment.
  4. Utility bills (phone, electric, gas, cable)
  5. Passports (expired and valid) of all family members resettling in Greece covering the time when you initially left the country to settle in the United States up to the present.
  6. Residency or work permit or proof of Greek citizenship.
  7. International driver's license.
  8. Proof of insurance and vehicle registration.
  9. Consular certificate.
  10. Proof of ownership.
  11. Registration certificate.

Tax ID Card

In order to pick up your car when it arrives, you will need to have an AFM card. This is easy to obtain and you will need it in order to open a bank account or pay taxes, so applying for the AFM card is one of the first things to do once you arrive in Greece. Take your passport and a copy of your birth certificate to a tax office (there are many locations to choose from) and fill out a form. You will be given a print out with your AFM number on it. Take this printout and the above documents with you when you pick up your car.

Inspections

After your car is released by customs, it will need to be inspected. It is a good idea to arrange for these inspections before the car arrives You will need three different inspections:

  • Emissions Inspection.
  • General Inspection.
  • Noise Inspection.

After these inspections are completed, you can apply for registration and a Greek license plate. Any vehicle you bring into Greece duty-free is for your personal use only (or the use of your family members) and may not be sold, transferred, lent out, leased or pawned, otherwise you will be sent a bill for the taxes that were waived.

Types of Transport

There are two common methods for shipping a car to Greece: Roll On/Roll Off (RO/RO) or container shipping. RO/RO tends to be less expensive than shipping by container. Your car is driven onto a special deck of the ship and parked, similar to valet parking, for the length of the journey. In order to use RO/RO shipping, the vehicle must be drivable and you are not permitted to store any items inside the car during the trip. When the ship docks, your car is driven off and parked until you pick it up.

Container shipping is a little more expensive, but you can ship other items along with your vehicle. Some of the expense is because there is more work involved in loading and securing cars inside a container. You also need to wait a bit longer for your car on the other end while the containers are unloaded.

What Are My Overseas Shipping Options?

The type of heavy equipment or oversized cargo you are trying to ship through A1 will determine what type of transport methods are available to you. Nonetheless, A1 offers a total of four international shipping methods. Each one has a different manner of overseeing the transport of your cargo to Greece.

Container transport is the costliest of the four transport methods since it is an enclosed shipping service that offers the ultimate protection. Your heavy equipment must fit into a 40ft shipping container if you wish to use this enclosed method.

The cheapest of your transport method options is RoRo (roll on/roll off). This open air service is only available to those with heavy equipment or large vehicles that can be driven onto and off of the ship using a ramp.

LoLo (lift on/lift off) shipping is another inexpensive open air service available to those transporting inoperable vehicles and crated heavy equipment to Greece. Your cargo is lifted on top of the boat and off of the boat using a crane.

The flat rack shipping service is the most secure open air transport method available. Your cargo will be strapped tightly to a metal frame before it is placed aboard the ship for its transport overseas.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
