Exporting a car to another country is no simple task. Not only are the logistics more challenging, but the laws that apply to cargo transport can be very different from one country to the next. This highlights the importance of finding a qualified, experienced professional when having a car shipped from the United States to Italy.

For shipping, a vehicle to European countries  (or those in the European Union at least) imports are subject to a standard tariff, as well as a value added tax or “VAT.” The most recent numbers indicate the value added tax for Italy is around 22%.

Options For Shipping A Car From The U.S. To Italy

  • Air Freight - Shipping by air is more expensive than shipping a car by boat, which accounts for the high cost of the service. Generally speaking, air freight is reserved for particularly high value, rare or expensive autos that need the maximum level of attention and protection available during transport.
  • RO/RO (Roll On/Roll Off) - Roll on, roll off service--called RoRo for short--is the most common way to move a car internationally. The process is just about as simple as it sounds: your car is rolled on (driven) on the boat and secured, then rolled off when it reaches its destination port.
  • Containerized Transport - Containerized transport is not unlike Ro/Ro service in that the vehicle is still driven into the container before being secured. Containers may hold more than one vehicle at a time and are then airlifted onto the ship before delivery.
  • Port-To-Port - Shipping directly from one port to another is a good way to save money on moving a car to Italy. For instance, if you lived in Florida, you could drive your car to a port in Jacksonville and have it shipped directly to Italy. The other option (see below) involves hiring a transporter to move your car to the port, which can easily be added to a service.
  • Door-To-Port - It’s not uncommon for customers to need a car delivered from their home to a port before being shipped off to Italy. We provide comprehensive services that can handle your auto moving needs every step of the way, from door to port and port to Europe, we do it all!

As professionals in the auto transport industry, A1 Auto Transport has been transporting oversized and heavy cargo nationally and internationally for over 25 years. With our wide range of clientele, we are often asked to transport all types of cargo. Some of the heavy equipment and oversized cargo types we are able to ship include…

  • Agricultural Equipment including tractors, combine harvesters, plows, balers, backhoes, spreaders, drills, mowers, etc.
  • Mining Equipment including loaders, excavators, haulers, etc.

What Are My Shipping Options?

There are various methods of international transport available to those trying to ship their cargo from the U.S. to the Italy. After you provide information regarding your cargo to the representatives we have waiting to take your phone call, you will find out which methods are available to you as according to the type of cargo you have. Nonetheless, we’d like to give you a little insight as to how we’re capable of conducting your international transport by providing you with some details about each of our overseas shipping methods.

  • Flat Rack- an open air service that secures your cargo to a metal flat rack before it is placed on the ship. Securing it to the metal frame prevents your cargo from shifting during its transport to Italy from the U.S.
  • LoLo Shipping- this open air service is for anyone with inoperable vehicles or crated equipment. A crane is used to carefully get your cargo on top of and off of the ship.
  • RoRo Shipping- this open air method is the most popular and affordable of all the shipping options. Your vehicle must be operable or able to roll onto and off of the ship using a ramp.
  • Container Shipping- As the most expensive method, this transport option encloses your cargo within a 40ft shipping container to protect it from outside elements as it travels.

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!
