For many years, Konya was a wealthy city dependent upon the agricultural industry for income. Over the last 20 years many manufacturing businesses have started contributing to the overall economy of the city. Industries like automotive, paint, chemicals and paper have opened their doors and have been able to help boost the economy and lower the unemployment rates. Since so many new companies have opened, people from the United States and other countries have opted to relocate to Konya for employment opportunities. If you relocate to the city you will quickly find that when not working or attending school, there are many museums, historical buildings and parks around the city for sightseeing and entertainment. You will want to study the behaviors of drivers on the roads as many will not pay attention to road signs or the speed that traffic should be flowing. You will have to hire a transport company to ship the car overseas to Konya for you. The automobile transport agent that you speak to will discuss everything with you but they will need the following paperwork, amongst others, to be able to process your shipping request:
- Driver’s License.
- Social Security Card.
- Signed Power of Attorney.
As soon as you give the agent your identification and they have explained all of the details of international shipping with you, they will then go over the shipping contract with you in detail. Any questions that you may have will be answered promptly and clearly so you will fully understand how international shipping works, how pick-up and delivery is scheduled and what the time frame is for delivery of your car. You will get a total price quote and will need to pay your shipping fees prior to the motor vehicle being delivered to the port for shipment.

Motor Vehicle Import Rules.
Turkey does not have many automobile import rules, but the ones that they do have must be followed closely and you will need to abide by them at all times. Unlike other countries there are no import duties or extra taxes to pay when shipping a car into Konya aside from the general shipping cost. Turkish customs will need some mandatory paperwork from you including:
- Work or School Visa.
- Blue Card.
- Bill of Lading (Shipping Bill).
- Certificate of Ownership (Motor Vehicle Title).
- Certificate of Registration.
- Automobile Insurance (Acquired in Turkey only).
For more information on necessary paperwork your auto transport agent will be able to assist you or you may also want to check with Turkish Embassy in Washington, DC. Turkey will allow one car per person and you may import with either a temporary or a permanent import status. For permanent status you need to plan well ahead because you will need to show proof of residency including retirement and relocation status, school status or employment status. For tourists or those that will be living in Konya short-term, you will be able to import your car to the city for up to 90 days.
International Automobile Shipping to Konya.
As you make plans to have the car shipped overseas to Konya, you will need to make a decision on the form of transport that you will use. You also need to speak to U.S. Customs and turn in necessary paperwork to them prior to shipping the car. It is best to have the paperwork complete in advance to avoid any delays. You must also have all of the shipping fees paid before the car leaves the shipping port. Missing paperwork or not having fees paid in a timely manner can not only delay the car from shipping out on time, but it can also cause you to be responsible to pay storage fees for each day that the car must wait before the shipping date.
Ro-Ro Shipping- When you need your motor vehicle delivered as quickly as possible and with the most affordable pricing available, then Ro-Ro shipping is the most convenient and simple way to ship the car. An open transport carrier where cars are driven on board at the port, secured for travel and then driven off when they reach the destination port makes this the easiest way to ship a car to any city or country around the world.
Container Shipping- Shipping in a container will cost a little more than shipping on an open transport ship because you will have to pay for the container usage, but it is a very convenient way to ship expensive cars as well as a very valuable form of transport when you need to ship household goods or other merchandise at the same time you ship the car overseas. When you’re planning to relocate long-term. Shipping in a container makes moving very convenient and simple to do when you have the ability to ship everything at one time.
