Maribor is currently the second biggest city in the country of Slovenia and it is the largest one in the Lower Styria region. You might have a residence permit or work visa if you are moving here on a short term or long term basis. However, having your own car will allow greater flexibility and comfort.
There is only one port which allows shipment of international goods in the country of Slovenia and this is the port of Koper. However, there are many departure ports in the U.S. You will have to ultimately get your car to one of these ports. You can drive it there yourself if you want to spare some money or you can have the shipper pick it up for you but you would have to pay the cost for the service. Some of the documents needed to clear the legal formalities include:
- Car title.
- Vehicle insurance.
- Copy of work permit.
- Bill of Lading.
- Purchase invoice.
You are going to have to decide on the shipping method afterwards. If you want the cheapest and the simplest way, you have to choose the Roll-on/Roll-off method. This entails that your vehicle is driven up the ramp of the shipping vessel and lashed securely afterwards.
On the other hand, shipping with a container is rather more expensive because your vehicle is going to be placed inside a 20ft or 40ft container which is closed and decked on the ramp. It is going to provide more safety for your vehicle and you will be allowed to transfer other personal belongings in the container as well.

Cost of delivery.
The shipping cost is going to depend on quite a few factors. The most important one of them is the make as well as the model and year of production of your car because this would determine the space that it is going to use up on the board of the ship. There is a schedule when you ship with Ro/Ro method, which would ultimately determine the shipping price.
Additionally, you are going to have to pay more if you want your shipper to pick up your car and transport it for you. A lot of the shippers are carrying insurance on the vehicles that they are shipping but you can always purchase additional insurance of your own and it is going to make it with 3-6% more expensive. The time of the year is also deciding because there are period with a lot of shipping which demands a lot of shipping space.
International Shipping Requirements.
You are going to be required to provide proof of ownership to the U.S Customs and Border Protection Agency, usually with the original purchase bill. You are going to show that you have no liens on the car with the title or a clearance of liens. If you have a lien, the lien holder is going to have to approve the shipment with a notarized agreement.
You are also going to need a valid driver’s license and registrations. Your shipper is going to be aware of these things because shipping companies tend to have working relationship with the customs. Avoiding any kinds of issues will prevent your vehicle from standing in one of the ports without you being able to pick it up. It is best to contact the Embassy of Slovenia in USA to find out the details.
