Transport a Car to Korce
If you plan to visit Albania for a while or want to live here, you need to import your car to traverse the country with ease. In order to do that you will need the following paperwork up to date and handed over to the Albanian Customs Authority:
- Vehicle title deed.
- Vehicle purchase invoice.
- Registration and insurance.
- Bill of Sale.
- Resident permit.
- Proof of ownership.
You can refer A1 Auto Transport service for more information and to help you understand the limitations of importing or moving your automobiles to Albania. The excise and import duty ranges from 0% to 55% depending upon the year, make and model of the vehicle. The insurance and freight charges are also considered.
Transportation Methods to Albania.
Vehicles need to be steam cleaned on the inside before they can leave the port for transport. If they are not steam cleaned, they will be quarantined before they can be shipped and the shipping company will decide who will clean the vehicle and bring it back to the ship yard to prepare for shipping. If you go ahead and steam clean your vehicle, you will keep the importation process on schedule and your vehicle will be imported as directed. You will also lessen the chance of your vehicle being damaged as well. You will also need to remove the gas from your air conditioning in your vehicle.
Roll On/ Roll Off shipping is one of the most chosen methods of shipping a vehicle. Vehicles are driven onto the ship for transport and will be driven off the ship upon arrival in Albania. Roll On/ Roll Off vessels will have the ramps needed for the vehicles. Shipping this method is less expensive. Vehicles are strapped down while on the ship so they cannot move around and get damaged.
Container shipping is another method of shipping. It is more expensive. The vehicle is driven from the home to the port where it is placed inside of a container that measures 20 foot or 40 foot in size. If you have personal belongings to go, the container shipping is your best method of shipment so they can all be placed together.
Arriving in Albania.
Once your vehicle reaches its destination, you will still need to be patient and follow the rules and regulations for claiming your vehicle. As the EU environment laws are applicable, you need to ensure that your vehicle complies with it. You will also need to modify your vehicle if it hasn't been modified already. You will also need to register the vehicle for a license plate and government approval.
Contact the Embassy of Albania to get further details on the recent changes and updates on the laws.
