  • Vehicle shipments to Israel that originate in the U.S. usually cost $3,100 to $5,700 with containerized or RORO transport for a standard sized car.

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.

A second method, that can sometimes be more affordable, is container shipping. The container shipping option is usually for when someone is making a permanent move since a container can be used to move furniture, personal items, and household goods as well. A third option is air freight, which is strictly used for extremely high value, rare or one of a kind automobiles.

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.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
