Move Car Israel

One of the first things to know about exporting a motor vehicle to Israel is that the country does not maintain trade agreements and diplomatic relations with every country, though it’s not an issue if you’re transporting a vehicle from North America.

Tourists can import a car for up to six months without paying taxes on it, after which time approval is required from the Israel Tax Authority. There are exceptions for certain types of visas; for example a student visa is valid as long as the student is enrolled in an academic setting. Israeli citizens can bring a car into the country that is up to two years old.

There are no import duties on vehicles brought into Israel from the United States, though there is a port tax and a value added tax (VAT). It should be noted that Israel will only accept imported vehicles that conform to European auto registration standards and technical specifications.

Not all vehicles are allowed to be shipped to Israel, depending on the country of manufacture and age of the vehicle. To check and see if a particular type of car is allowed to be imported to Israel, you can look up approved vehicles using this resource from the website for the Israel Ministry of Transport.

Methods Of Shipping A Car From The US To Israel

If you’re shipping a car to Israel from the United States or North America, there’s only a couple ways to do it. The most popular method of transport is called “RORO,” which stands for “roll on, roll off” and refers to how the vehicle is loaded onto the ship before being secured for transport. It is basically driven onto a boat for shipping, then driven off when it arrives at the destination port.

Container shipping is another option that is sometimes more cost-effective. Since a container can be used to carry furniture, personal things, and household goods, this method of shipping is typically reserved for those who are making a permanent relocation. Air freight is a third possibility, and it's reserved for vehicles of exceptional value or rarity or that are one of a kind.

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Israel

Are you on the hunt for reliable transporters to ship your heavy equipment or oversized cargo to Israel? At A1 Auto Transport, we have the experience and proper training as well as access to the latest and highest quality transport equipment to ship any type of heavy equipment to another country, even to Israel.

In most cases, we consider any cargo that cannot fit into a 40ft shipping container as oversized unless its weight significantly surpasses its size. Some examples of oversized cargo we can deliver outside of the U.S. include…

  • Backhoes
  • Forklifts
  • Dump Trucks
  • Large Trucks or Heavy Vehicles
  • Cranes
  • Harvesters
  • Farm Equipment
  • Industrial Equipment
  • Mining Equipment
  • Paving Equipment
  • Construction Equipment
  • Engineering Equipment
  • Agricultural Equipment and more…

We guarantee a safe delivery of your cargo to Israel and we will make sure it is lawfully approved for export and import. The act of appeasing import policies is perhaps the most confusing and difficult part of the entire overseas shipping process, especially for those unfamiliar with the import laws for Israel. With our professional guidance and extreme knowledge of foreign import policies, we can certainly get your cargo delivered safely.

Low Cost Overseas Heavy Equipment Shipping Options

There are several affordable overseas heavy equipment shipping options offered through A1, but depending on the type of equipment or oversized cargo you’d like to have transported, not all of these options may be available to you. Below are the all the shipping options we offer to those internationally transporting equipment...

  • Lift-On Lift-Off- this open air shipping method is offered to those shipping inoperable vehicles or crated heavy equipment. A crane lifts the cargo to place it on the ship and then is used again to lift the cargo off the ship.
  • Roll-On Roll-Off - this is the least expensive international transport method and it is also an open air service. Only those with operable vehicles and heavy equipment can purchase this transport method since the cargo must be rolled onto and off the ship using a ramp.
  • Flat Rack- with this open air shipping service, your cargo is strapped to a metal frame before it’s put on top of the ship. Your equipment may be covered with shrink wrap for added protection against poor weather conditions.
  • Container Shipping- this enclosed transport method is only available to those with heavy equipment small enough to fit into a 40ft container. It offers by far the most security in comparison to the other shipping methods offered.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

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.
