Ship Car To Jerusalem

🇮🇱 Israel, (IL)

Ship Car To Jerusalem
🇮🇱 Israel, (IL)

Jerusalem is one of the oldest cities in the entire world. Considered a holy city several religions including Christianity, Judaism and Islam. While both Israel and Palestine state that the city is their capital, Israel has its government seat in the city. The government in Israel has been working to supply more employment to the region in recent years and offers financial subsidies for new business to be created in the area for residents. The city sees a steady stream of revenue each year from tourists. Jerusalem is also home to many universities and colleges including the Hebrew University of Jerusalem that has been listed as top 100 school in the world. Relocating to the city can be an exciting as well as a very daunting time due to travel plans, location of a new residence and customs regulations. When you need to have your car shipped to Jerusalem you will need to strictly follow the laws set by U.S. Customs as well as Israeli rules and regulations. You will also have to hire a professional automobile transport company to handle the car shipment for you.

Israeli Automobile Import Regulations.

Anytime that you ship a car internationally from the United States you will need to supply customs with specific paperwork in order to do so. Some of the paperwork you will be required to present to Israeli Customs will be:

  • Passport.
  • Israeli Driver’s License.
  • Bill of Sale or Commercial Invoice for automobile.
  • Import License.
  • Bill of Lading (Shipping Bill).
  • Vehicle Registration from the United States (or country the car originates from).
  • Ministry of Transportation letter with allowance for the car to be imported.

For further information on documents that you will need during importation of a motor vehicle you can contact the Israeli Embassy in Washington, DC.

While there are no import duties required when importing a car into Israel from the United States you will still have to pay all shipping fees and associated taxes. You will also have to pay a Value Added Tax (VAT) based on the total vehicle value. If you will not be staying in Israel for more than six months you won’t need to register the car in Jerusalem. If you are staying longer than six months however, you will need to complete automobile registration in the city and will have to pay automobile taxes. Registration can be done anytime within the first six month time period. If you’re in Jerusalem for school you will not have to register the car during the time that you are enrolled as a student.

Overseas Motor Vehicle Shipping Cost.

The total cost to ship a motor vehicle overseas will vary based on the location and distance between shipping ports, the weight of the vehicle and the type of overseas transport that is used for shipment.

Types of Overseas Transport.

When shipping a car to Jerusalem from the United States, there are three ways that you may be able to choose from when shipping the car. Those ways are:

  • Ro-Ro Shipping- The simplest as well as most affordable way to have a motor vehicle shipped overseas is with Ro-Ro shipping. This type of shipping is suitable for most automobiles, trucks, SUV’s and other wheeled vehicles. Vehicles are easily rolled onto the ship, transported overseas and then rolled off the ship when they reach the port in Israel.
  • Container Shipping- Container shipping is the perfect way to relocate everything all at one time. When you need to have a motor vehicle as well as personal items shipped to move overseas, using a large shipping container makes this very simple to do as everything can be loaded inside of the container for shipment. There will be a fee for the container, thus it can generally cost a little more than Ro-Ro shipping, but is well worth it when you need to relocate an entire household all at one time.
  • Air Cargo Shipping- Air cargo shipping is not used very often and is generally for use with extremely valuable automobiles like luxury, exotic or classic cars. Shipping by air is the fastest way to have a car delivered but it is also the most expensive route to take when shipping overseas.
Automobile Transport Company.

Hiring an automobile transport company will make the entire overseas automobile shipping process be seamlessly smooth for you. The agent that you will speak to will gather some information like your driver’s license and social security number as well as information about your automobile for processing the shipping request. Any information you will need prior to shipping will be explained in full to you when you speak to them. The agent will let you know how you need to prepare the car for shipping including cleaning the car, modifying it if necessary to meet standards in Israel, paperwork that will need turned in and fees that will need paid prior to the date of shipment. If you will need pick-up or delivery to or from the sea ports, the agent will also be able to take care of that and will include it in the total cost of shipping the car to Jerusalem.

For more information on overseas motor vehicle shipping you can find excellent information with the Federal Maritime Convention.

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!
