Cut costs with your own vehicle.

IfΒ you plan to live in Montpellier, France, you may soon come to learn that hiring a taxi or rental car when you need to go out can be quite an expense. If you are accustomed to having your own personal car to get around, you may want to consider importing your vehicle if you are planning on staying a while. When you drive your own vehicle, you can cut down on your transportation cost while you are in France. To get your vehicle over to Montpellier, you will need to find an auto shipping company that is reputable and affordable. And that is why A1 Auto Transport services turns out to fit your budget.

After that the next step is to ensure that your shipment is verified and for that you have to supply some important paperwork. You will need:

  • Owner’s driver’s license.
  • Social security card.
  • Power of Attorney Form filled out and signedΒ (optional)
  • ProofΒ of car insurance.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • receipts of taxes paid in France.
  • Shipping/freight invoices.

When shipping your car, it's important to verify what type of shipping insurance they offer. If you are shipping to France, you will need to have international shipping insurance and if the shipping company doesn't cover it, you will need to. You may also ask us as we are handling your transportation process to help you find some coverage before you transport.

One of the most common questions asked regarding international shipping is the customs requirements. Shipping requirements will differ from each country. French Customs and Excise Service is known for their leniency in customs requirements for U.S citizens. However, always count on providing proof such as providing your photo ID, a bill of sale, proof of where you live, the original title and registration for your car, and conformity certificate provided by the car manufacturer. If your vehicle is less than four years, six months old, you will need to follow French auto specifications before importing.

You may be asked to modify your vehicle before shipping it; the shipping agent will let you know prior to your estimated shipping date. Cars will need to have the steering wheel on the correct side, the left side of the vehicle. Once your car has passed inspection from customs, it will be ready for you to pick up. You will be given up to four months to get your vehicle registered and licensed to drive in France. If you fail to get it registered, your car will then be impounded and held until you obtain the registration paperwork and show proof. You will then need to pay any impound fines that have accumulated from holding your vehicle.Β Β You can contact the Embassy of France to know more.

Get the paperwork done and Ship your Car.

When considering how you will ship your vehicle over to Montpellier, you will have two choices. The first choice is called the Roll on and Roll Off method. This method of shipping is the most commonly chosen. It requires that your vehicle is rolled on to theΒ ships'Β deck where it will be placed in a bay. Then once it reaches the destination, it will be rolled off and given over to customs.

Container shipping is another option. With this method, you can place your personal items inside of your container along with your vehicle. The container is then locked up and secured on the ship until it reaches the destination. Container shipping costs more money but you only have to pay for the container fee and it will hold your vehicle and your personal possessions all in one trip.
