Ship Car To Joensuu
🇫🇮 Finland, (FI)

Car Shipping Joensuu 

One of the larger cities of Finland, Joensuu is located in North Karelia and is often referred to as ‘Forest Capital of Europe’ because the European Forest Institute is located here. Several other forestry research and further forestry education take place in Joensuu as well.

If you are coming to Joensuu, Finland to extend your education in forestry or to go to work, you may want to bring your vehicle with you as well. Because Finland is located near the Baltic Sea, importing your vehicle will be easier due to the abundant ports that you have to choose from.

Finland's economy thrives with the help of these ports. Before you get started with the importing process, you may want to consider hiring an international shipping service, like A1 Auto Transport service so they can handle all communications and ensure that the process is complete for you. A1 Auto Transport Service has over twenty years of service in this business so they know the requirements for importing to Finland as well as the duty tax rate that you will need to pay.

Tariff and taxes.

There are also CO2 emissions, the age of the vehicle, and mileage restrictions that you may not be aware of but A1 Auto Transport Service knows. There will be a minimum tax rate to pay of 5% but it could be more depending on several factors. The maximum you will pay is 50%. The duty rate for importing to Finland is 10% and the import VAT is currently 24%. There are many factors that must be considered when importing your vehicle to Finland.

Methods of Shipping to Finland.

Before you begin the importing process, you will need to make sure that both the port in the United States and the port you choose in Finland accept the Roll On/Roll-Off method. A1 Auto Transport Service will also offer another option to you; whether you want to drive your vehicle directly to the port your vehicle will be exiting at or if you want door-to-port transportation instead.

One choice your shipping agent will discuss with you is how you want to ship your vehicle over to Finland. There are two common options to choose from; the Roll On/ Roll Off method and container shipping.

The Roll On/ Roll Off method involves your vehicle being driven onto the deck of the ship and the secured in an open deck for the transport. Once it reaches the port in Finland, it will be driven off the deck of the ship for the further custom procedure.

The container shipping method is another choice for you. With this shipping method, your vehicle will be placed inside the container, either a 20 foot or 40 foot container, and then a crane will lift it onto the ship and secure it before the ship leaves port. Once the ship arrives in the port in Finland, the container is unloaded using a crane. This method costs more than the Roll On/ Roll Off shipping method however it does offer better protection.

Preparing your Vehicle for Importing to Finland.

You will need to provide the following for importing to Finland:

  • Your driver's license and passport.
  • An extra set of keys to your vehicle.
  • Insurance documents and if needed, Finnish insurance.
  • Title to the vehicle.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Documentation giving you permission to export the vehicle over to Finland, if your vehicle has a lien against it.
  • No air conditioning gas.
  • Vehicle must be winterized.
  • Nothing of value can be left inside the car.

On rare occasions, you can import your vehicle to Helsinki without paying any customs duties. You must be a VIP or a diplomat. You will only be allowed to import one vehicle and you must have owned your vehicle for a minimum of six months. The value of the vehicle will play a role in the decision to waive the customs duties. The vehicle you import will be required to follow the emissions standards set by the United States as well as Europe. If your vehicle doesn't meet these standards, you will then need to pay to have modifications done to the vehicle in order to clear both customs.

When you work with an experienced transportation team like A1 Auto Transport Service, you get the experience needed to successfully import the vehicle for you and reduce the amount of time it takes to import. You can learn more about regulations of importing to Finland by contacting the Embassy of Finland located in the United States.

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!
