Car Shipping Marseille

Importing Your Car to Marseille

Marseille is the third largest city in France and the largest on the Mediterranean Coast. Marseilles has been known as the most valuable trade center of France and hosts the largest commercial shipping port in all of France. With the ease of being the center of shipping, along with a reputable international auto transport company, shipping a car to Marseille is a relatively simple task to do. Your shipping agent will walk you through all of the information that will be necessary for exporting your car from the United States to Marseille including the total cost of shipping internationally, required paperwork and any modifications to emissions or the engine that may need to be done to your car prior to importing to France.

You will need to provide the shipping company with the following documents prior to shipping:

  • Driver’s License
  • Social Security Number
  • Power of Attorney (signed)
  • Vehicle Title
  • Vehicle Insurance Certificate

The agent will let you know what other paperwork will need to be filled out as well as what legal documents you may need to provide for the transport of your vehicle as well as for customs clearance.

Regulations of Importation in Marseille

While the importation of vehicles from the United States to Marseille does not have some of the stricter regulations that many countries have, there are some specific directives that must be followed in order to help the importation go smoothly and ensure your vehicle is able to pass Customs Clearance with no problems. You will need to check with your shipping agent or with the Embassy of France in Washington, DC to find specific modifications that may need to be taken care of on your vehicle before shipping. Once all modifications (if any) are complete, you will need to provide customs agents with the registration for your vehicle, a commercial invoice or original bill of sale and you will need to pay a Value Added Tax of 19.5% of the value of your vehicle as described on your billing invoice or by the blue book value as assessed by the customs agent who performs your vehicle inspection. Taxes are collected by the French Customs and Excise Committee when you are coming through the customs clearance checkpoint. Once your vehicle has been cleared through customs you need to apply for a local French registration and have French domestic plates put on your vehicle. You will be allowed 4 months after clearance to register the vehicle.

How Can I Ship and What Will It Cost?

When it comes to shipping your vehicle internationally to Marseille you are in luck as Marseille has the largest shipping port in France and shipping by sea is very accessible for car importation. There are essentially two ways to ship by sea. The first way, and also the most widely used, is RoRoShipping( Roll On Roll Off) Your vehicle is rolled (driven) aboard the cargo ship and secured by braces and wheel blocks for the travel, then is rolled(driven) off of the ship when it reaches the Marseille Port in Marseille, France. You will need to clear out all personal items from the interior of your car prior to shipping with RoRo. Container Shipping is the second way to ship a vehicle internationally and is especially convenient for those who need to ship personal items or household goods with the vehicle. Your vehicle and any personal belongings you may need will be loaded into a container and then loaded onto the cargo ship for the voyage overseas to Marseille. Once the ship reaches Marseille Port, the container will be unloaded from the ship and you may either drive the vehicle to your location or can arrange for it to be transported for you.  The total cost of shipping will vary depending on your shipping location from the United States and the distance from there to Marseille, the weight of your vehicle or the weight of the container load, and the fees that the automobile transport company charges. Your agent will detail all the cost associated with shipping and will give you a finalized quote before your vehicle is shipped.

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!
