Ship Car To Nantes
🇫🇷 France, (FR)

You’ve just relocated to beautiful Nantes, France, known as the most livable city in all of Europe, and as you realize how utterly expensive hiring a taxi or rental car can be for daily travel, you decide that you need your own personal car to be imported to the city. Driving your own car makes travel so much easier, as well as less expensive, than when you have to rely on others to drive for you. Hiring a reputable auto shipping company is the first step towards having your personal car in Nantes with you. If you will need someone to deliver your car to the shipping port in the United States for you that will be no problem at all. Your shipping agent will be able to have that taken care of for you. You will need to provide some important paperwork to the agent prior to having your car shipped, as well as pay some fees upfront. The paperwork needed will be:

  • Driver’s License (Photo I.D.)
  • Social Security Number (Card)
  • Original Car Title
  • Power of Attorney Form (signed)
  • Car Insurance Certificate

The auto transport company will typically have international shipping insurance included in the total cost of shipping, but if it is not you will need to purchase an international policy through your current auto insurance provider, or request information from the agent who handles your shipment processing and they will be able to provide you with the information needed for insurance and any other shipping questions you may have.

Customs Requirements

One of the biggest questions asked about international shipping is “What will customs require to import my car?” Customs requirements vary from one country to another, but Nantes has some of the more lenient customs requirements. You will, of course, need to provide Customs with a copy of your photo identification, your bill of sale, proof of residency, original vehicle title and registration, and the Conformity Certificate provided by your car manufacturer. They will also require that the car is less than four years and six months old in order to allow it to be imported and the engine will need to meet French auto specifications. If your car will need to have anything modified prior to shipping to fit the specification criteria for Nantes, France, your shipping agent will discuss that with you. All cars imported to Nantes must be right side driving cars (steering wheel on the left side). Once your car has been cleared with the customs agent when it arrives in Nantes, you will have up to four months to register your car and obtain French Domestic License Plates for the car. Failure to do so can result in your car being taken to an impound lot and held until the registration has been completed and the impound fines have been paid in full.

Paperwork is Out of the Way. How Can I Ship the Car?

Once you have taken care of obtaining all of the necessary paperwork you will need to decide on the type of shipping you prefer to have your car shipped. With a shipping canal that runs directly into Nantes from the sea, as well as a large airport that provides cargo service, you have several options to choose from. Here are the ways you can ship your car to Nantes:

  • RoRo Shipping- When you use RoRo Shipping your car will be driven onto the carrier ship and secured into place for the overseas journey. When it arrives at the port of entry it will be driven off the ship. You cannot load any personal items into the car for RoRo Shipping. RoRo Shipping is the most preferred way to ship a car internationally and is the most financially efficient way to ship a car to Nantes.
  • Container Shipping- Shipping your car in a container is the best way to go when you have personal items that need to be shipped with your car. While it will cost a little more because you have to pay the container fee, it allows you to relocate easily and have your personal possessions with you.
  • Air Shipping- When you need your car fast, Air Shipping is the way to go. When you ship by air you can have your car delivered much faster than when you ship by sea. You can also send personal items when you ship by air cargo. Air Shipping is the fastest way to have your car delivered to you in Nantes. You’ll be able to pick it up at the Nantes Atlantique Airport and be on your way as soon as customs have given it clearance.

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!
