Ship Car To Kalamaria

🇬🇷 Greece, (GR)

Ship Car To Kalamaria
🇬🇷 Greece, (GR)

Kalamaria is one of the largest boroughs in the Thessaloniki Urban Area, situated nearly 4 miles from the city of Thessaloniki. A melting pot of ancient history, culture and modern skyscrapers, it is one of the favored and tourist friendly cities in Greece.

If you plan on moving and staying in Kalamaria, it is important to import a vehicle when you move. However, as per the requirements, you have the option of choosing temporary and permanent import permits. You are allowed to import the vehicle for 6 months for free, but you are not allowed to sell that vehicle and nobody apart from you or your authorized family members can drive the vehicle.

It is important to show proof of insurance, registration documents, license plate tags as proof of purchase. However, if the vehicle’s registration and license expire while in Kalamaria, you will need to contact U.S Customs for license plate and temporary registration. Greece is less expensive to import your vehicle to and that is why most of the auto shipments cost around $1,300 to $3,700 through it depends upon the different type of vehicles.

If you are permanently moving to Greece, you will need to have your vehicle with you to ensure that you can traverse the city limits with ease while traversing the rest of the country is a breeze.  If you are bringing the vehicle with you as part of the household goods, you are allowed to bring it in free, without any import taxes. However, you would need to get the import permit from the Embassy of Greece in USA, before you ship it here.

However, this is an option only for those who are of Greek descent or are married to a citizen of Greece. It is also allowed for someone who has a work permit for employment in Greece. You will need to have been out of Greece for at least 24 months to become eligible for tax-free status.

To start with, if you want to import your vehicle tax-free, it is important to send in the vehicle description to the Greek Consulate. Additionally, you need to prove that the vehicle was purchased 6 months before the vehicle is imported. All imported vehicles have to pay VAT, license plate fee, and registration fee.

Documentation For Auto Import.

With plenty of documentation required for import, it is essential that you submit all of these documents to U.S Customs and Greek Customs Authority. Some of these include:

  • W2 forms.
  • Proof of employment.
  • All valid and expired passports of you and your family.
  • Utility bills.
  • Work permit/residency permit.
  • Driving license.
  • Vehicle insurance proof.
  • Title deed and registration.

Inspections and tax ID.

It is essential to have your AFM card before you will be allowed to pick your car from the Greece Customs Authority. This is an important aspect of opening bank accounts, getting a license or paying taxes, so it is best to apply for it early on.

Additionally, your imported vehicle will need to be checked for overall condition, emissions, and noise inspections. Based on the temporary or permanent official registration numbers and circulation license that were assigned in USA, the vehicles will need to show it on entering Greece. If the vehicle is on a temporary permit, you need to have valid car insurance. After the vehicle clears these inspections, you can file for registration.

Methods of vehicle shipment from USA.

Although sea-based freight cargo is the most affordable option, there are two common methods that are used for ferrying your vehicle from USA to Greece.  These are:

  • Roll-on/Roll-Off: Your vehicle is driven aboard and harnessed in place. As you only pay for the parking bay space, this is the most affordable option to ship overseas. The vehicle has to be completely empty of all personal goods, fuel and air conditioning gas during transit. It is driven on and from the ship using its own set of wheels. To ensure that it is not quarantined, steam-clean the interiors.
  • Enclosed container shipping: This is a more exclusive method but adds a layer of exclusivity to the vehicle. Using this method, you can ship your vehicle along with other personal goods within a 20 feet or 40 feet container.

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!
