Car Shipping Izmir

Izmir is one of the largest cities in Turkey and lays on the beautiful coast of the Gulf of Izmir in the Mediterranean Sea. Roadways are a bit rugged in the city due to the location, and you may want to have a 4-wheel drive vehicle in order to drive on some of the rougher secondary roadways.

When you’re making plans to ship a personal vehicle to the city you will need to comply with U.S. Customs export laws as well as standard shipping laws and rules set by Turkey. You can contact the Turkish Embassy in Washington, DC for information on import regulations for Izmir. When you hire the automobile transport company to handle car shipment for you they will need some of the following paperwork:

  1. Driver’s License
  2. Social Security Card or number
  3. Power of Attorney Form

You may need to provide other paperwork to both the automobile transport company as well as to customs both in the United States and Turkey. Your customer service representative will let you know exactly what must be turned in prior to shipping and what you will need to possess when you reach Izmir as well. A very important thing that you will want to do is study the road signs that you will need to know when driving in the city. You may also need to know how traffic flows in Turkey. Driving can be very erratic in all areas on the country, including Izmir. Cars will often stop in the middle of busy roadways, pass on the right and stop suddenly to turn without signaling. You also need to be very aware of pedestrian traffic as people will walk into the road without checking for traffic and it is up to the driver to stop suddenly. When driving on secondary and less travelled roads, you may even find that there are no traffic signs but rocks and stones will mark various roads and locations. Another thing to be aware of is that there will often be police or military checkpoints and you must stop for all checks.

Customs Regulations.

Customs regulations are mandatory regulations that all people must follow both in the United States as well as Turkey. There are two ways to import a car to Izmir. You can gain a temporary import if you will be in the city for up to 3 months or a permanent import. Permanent imports are not easily done however, and you will need to show proof that you are relocating to attend school, work long-term or that you have retired and decided to relocate to Izmir permanently. You will also need to obtain a residency permit and have a valid visa for work or school if applicable.

Customs will require that you give them some important paperwork including:

  • Passport.
  • International License to Drive.
  • Car Title.
  • Visa.

Your customer service representative will let you know what other, if any, paperwork will be required to present to customs officials. Customs does not charge duty fees to import a car to the country, but you will be responsible to pay all of your shipping fees and any taxes associated with shipping prior to the scheduled date of shipment.

How to Ship to Izmir.

The cost of shipping your car internationally to Izmir from the United States will be based on the weight and size of the car, the distance between shipping ports and the type of automobile transport that you use to ship the car overseas. You will possibly be able to choose from three types of shipping, depending on the location your car will be shipping from. The traditional ways to ship a car overseas are as follows:

Ro-Ro Shipping- Ro-Ro shipping is a simple way to ship a car, has been used for many years and is reliable and fast when shipping on the ocean. Cars are rolled onto the ship, safely put in place, and then rolled off when they reach the port to Izmir. Ro-Ro is the most cost effective way to ship a car internationally and is used daily throughout the world. If you need to pack things inside of your car during transport however, you will want to use a different type of transport because when using Ro-Ro the car needs to be completely emptied of all content inside. This is both for safety reasons for the car and people aboard the ship, as well as for the cost of fuel when hauling.

Container Shipping- Shipping a car overseas in a container is an excellent choice for many reasons. First, if you have a luxury car or one that is a large financial investment and you need it to be securely protected during transport, then containers offer the added protection necessary during shipment. Also, if you need to ship any personal content with the car you will be able to have it loaded into the shipping container as well. Containers are usually in 20 or 40 foot size and they are sealed to prevent air, wind, rain or other elements intrude and damage the contents. Many shipping containers also have padded interiors and are climate controlled as an extra precaution.

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!
