Cut costs with your own vehicle.

If 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 signed (optional)
  • Proof 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.  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 the ships' 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.

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!
