Documents Required Prior to the Shipping.
It’s advisable that you gather all the required documents prior to the shipping process. You would be required to submit them in order to get clearance from the Transport and Customs authority in Norway. These documents include:
- Residency or a work permit which is issued by the Norwegian Government.
- Title deed.
- Insurance policies.
- Ownership proof.
- USA registration of the car.
You can check out the Norway Custom Department if you wish to know more about the taxes and the duties which would be imposed. It’s advisable to remove all of the personal belongings and accessories from the vehicle prior to the shipping. If you fail to adhere to any of the rules you may have to experience significant and unwanted delays. You should also be informed that the EU emissions standards differ from the ones in the US and you must get your vehicle properly adjusted and modified if you are to meet them.
Driving in the City.
There are some other things that you would have to take care of, once your vehicle arrives at the port, such as:
- Pay the required taxes.
- Test the modifications.
- Get a clearance for the emissions standards.
- Approval for registration plates from the Norwegian Transport Authority.
It is incredibly important that you hire a reliable shipping carrier such as the A1 Auto Transport. They are reliable, knowledgeable and have a lot of experience in transporting vehicles to Norway. It is also advisable to steam clean the car prior to the shipment. You are also going to remove all of the accessories as well as personal items, provided you’ve chosen to use the RORO method. You can bring in other belongings if you are using the Container Shipment method. For further information you could contact the Embassy of Norway.
You also have to remove the air condition gas because no flammable liquids are allowed as they may cause an accident. If you want to check out the eligibility of your car, you can look through the U.S. Federal Regulation Code. You will have to drive your car to the exit port, unless you’ve opted for a door-to-port service. The most common shipping methods are RORO and container shipping. You can discuss the details, requirements and further eligibility conditions with the A1 Auto Transport service.
Once your car arrives, you should definitely think about reading up on the Norway transport regulations in order to get along with the traffic specifics. The roads are terrific, but the extreme weather condition may cause closure of roadways on occasion. You would also have to apply for a national Driver’s License as it is required of people from the USA, Asia and even from Europe. However, until such time you’ve acquired a valid Norwegian license, you can drive with your photo I.D.
